We have puppies that will be available in our training program, born from Gabby and Phil 02/07/2021 as well as Izzy/Trigger 02/18/2021. These puppies will be ready to go June 2021. We are donating a pup from their litter down to a service organization in Florida, Tidal K9, so hoping to help with the costs of transport, care, and training by offering these puppies as trained puppies. Puppies in this program are $2000 plus $250/wk for training as pet - full rights will also be an option. These pups will be inducted into a 8 week program where they will be introduced to basic obedience, crate training, leash training, socialization, potentially some public access, and more. These puppies may be able to transition in to more training if asked for more specialized training for field, service, esd.

 

We will have 2-3 puppies available for our June to August 2021 training program. Please reach out to me if this is something you are interested in.

Commands your dog should be introduced to: 

  • “Sit” – sit down 

  • “Down” – lay down 

  • “Place” – bed 

  • “Here/Come”- recalls 

  • “You’re free/Okay”- release command 

  • “Wait”- wait until released (at the door or in crate) 

  • “Lets Go”- come with me 

  • “Kennel”- used to crate  

  • “Heel” – walk beside me 

  • “no”- correction for incorrect behavior 

 

Notes: 

1. Keep an eye on your puppy when he/she is in the house at all times- no free roaming. 

If you are unable to watch at all times, puppy must be in the crate or outside. We cannot scold a puppy for pottying in the house when we do not see it.  

2. Ignore whining or barking in crate. Do not let him out until he has calmed down and is quiet. 

3. No water or food in the crate. Bones and toys are fine in the crate. 

4. Pick up water at least 2 hours before bed.  

5. Keep him off a leash as often as possible and make his recall fun (high pitched and excited  

“come here”. Never chase him. Reward him when he comes up to you. 

6. If he does not follow a command on the first try, say “no” and give a correction. 

7. Tell or ask him what you are doing. We notice dogs understand a lot of words. For example: “wanna go outside?” or “outside” generally results in our dogs wagging their tails and heading towards the door. Some other good words to learn would be walk, leash, ball, or off.
