Trained Puppies

From time to time we will have a couple trained puppies available. We understand that sometimes the puppy stage can be the most difficult part of owning a dog, and it should be done correctly.  With these puppies, you will not have to worry about multiple accidents or starting a brand new puppy. Most of the work will already be done and they will be ready to settle in to your home. We do allow our trained puppies to leave with full rights to approved breeders.


A couple of our dogs have gone on to do service and emotional support work. Other's have gone on to be fantastic pets. Whatever it may be, this program is designed to allow people to ensure their new puppy gets a good start. 

These puppies will be trained and learn all the important life skills at a very important age. This is a 6-8 week program. We will follow the AKC puppy STAR program protocol.

We have two females from Deuce/Rosie that are currently in our training program. Please, see them here.
