Puppy Training
Focus & Manners

Focus and family manners is designed for older pups and adults with no prior formal training. We will focus on basic manners, leash walking, and the "perfect recall". Once basic obedience is acheived, we will test the pup or dog by adding distractions and work on a higher level of obedience. We also encourage all owners to pursue taking the CGC (Canine Good Citizen) test. The CGC is a wonderful opportunity to show off your dog's training and skills!

We offer a variety of personal and private training sessions designed to give you and your pup the individual attention you deserve. Not only can we help you train your pup through private lessons, we offer puppy training camp for those who purchase a puppy from us. We can keep your pup for a set amount of time and train the pup to your desired level and specifications. We also offer advanced puppy training for older pups who need that extra attention. Contact us for further information!

On occasion, we offer "board and train" camp for those who would prefer for us to keep your dog/pup and train at our home. Your dog or pup would live in our home amongst our own dogs, and learn to behave and socialize within a pack setting. We have acres of land to run and play, a pond for swimming, and can provide daily training sessions to ensure the best results. Board and train camp is NOT available year-round, so contact us for details and our schedules. Camp is available for puppies, young adults or older dogs that meet our criteria. Boarding is also available for select dogs!

Occasionally we offer young adult BC's for sale to the perfect home. Any dog that we consider placing would have various levels of training, depending on the individual. ALL dogs would have basic obedience, potty training, and socialization. We have found in some cases, adult dogs work within the family structure more appropriately than a young puppy. Adults eliminate the hassles of teething, chewing, potty training, and the initial basic training. Additional training is always available on any dog we have. See our "Older Pups" page for available dogs and information.
