Congratulations on your new or upcoming puppy! What a joy they are, but boy are puppies a lot of work. Do you wish you could receive a ‘leg up’ on crate and house training? Establish nice behavior patterns right away? Have your puppy socialized under the supervision of a professional dog trainer? Learn the basics so your pup will be the star of the class? If so, Puppy Jumpstart is for you!
Socializing and training your puppy during the first 8-16 weeks of their life is critical. This is their first social window when they learn all about how the world works. It is vital to offer them positive experiences and develop polite behavior patterns during this time to set them up for a lifetime of success. This premium program for puppies is designed to take the guess work out of raising a puppy. We’ll work on socializing and training your puppy so you won’t have to worry.
Puppies are lodged with other puppies of a similar age range in a home environment at night. During the day, puppies may visit our 2000+ square foot puppy-only Nursery School for added exposure to new people, places, and pets. Your puppy will receive critical information about the world during this period, including socializing with dogs and exposure to new animals, people, places, preventing resource guarding behavior, and much more!
Requirements: Our jumpstart program is designed for puppies ranging in age from 8-16 weeks. All puppies must be up to date on age-appropriate Distemper combo, Bordetella (given at least 2 weeks prior to start date), and produce a recent parasite-free fecal test and be in good health.
Puppy parents can choose from 1 of 2 packages – our Small Step Program (a 7 day program including lodging), or our Jump Start Program (a 21 day program with lodging). To read more about each program, check out the descriptions below.
The Puppy Jump Start program is also an excellent first step before joining our Nursery School for Puppies!
