Crate & Basic Obedience Training - lasts 2-4 weeks long
There are HUGE advantages to a crate-trained puppy. First of all, you won't wake up or come home to poop or pee. Your pup will be able to hold its bowels for up to 10 hours overnight. 2nd, housebreaking a crate trained pup is comparatively a breeze and typically only takes a week after going home because they are pre-trained to control their bowels.
Crate training & housebreaking a puppy is undoubtedly the hardest part of raising puppies. We are one of the ONLY breeders that have the ability to successfully crate train your pup before they go home!
**Please note that we do not guarantee results. While almost all the pups we train go home and have zero accidents in their crates overnight, there have been 2 pups so far that continue to soil their crates. At our training facility, they have their littermates to keep them active, get them to romp around (exercise helps them poo), and follow their lead for going poop. What we've learned in trying to help the clients afterward is that both pups are NOT going poop before bed. You cannot put them to bed until they've gone poop or they will soil their crate. If you are having trouble afterward, you can try these troubleshoots:
1) add 1-2 cubes of sweet potatoes to their meals (contains a lot of fiber)
2) although you are not supposed to go for organized walks until they are 12 weeks in age, starting to take them on an organized walk for 15 minutes should do the trick in conjunction with the sweet potatoes (you can buy canned cooked sweet potatoes at Wal-Mart).
All Obedience Training will utilize Clicker Training
Clicker training is often used for service animals because it has proven to speed up the pup's ability to learn new & more complex concepts such as crossing the street as a guide dog. Clickers are included with The Complete Package.
No Guarantee of Training Accomplishments
Please note that we do not guarantee mastery of any command or make a warranty or claim that your pup will learn all of the commands. While most pups will go on to learn the majority of the commands that come with each training segment, we cannot force your pup to learn faster than they are capable.
Basic Obedience Training
Your assigned trainer will work with your pup on a daily basis, many times throughout the day. Depending on the trainer it may take as short as 2 weeks or as long as 4 weeks to get through all of the training commands. As training continues, each session gets longer, up to about 7-8 minutes per session. Your pup will initially master most if not all of the 10 basic obedience commands: Sit, Stay, Down, Stay Down, Come, Up, Off, No, OK, and Follow Me. We use positive reinforcement, lures, and the distract/redirect training methods outlined on our Training page and videos page, playing with them in between training sessions to keep it fun. Upon completion, your assigned trainer will walk you through each of the commands to demonstrate what they've learned whether in person or via Facetime. Please note that you will need to continue to reinforce the training learned after they go home and increase the distraction setting as you go, for several weeks until it is well set in their minds.
Please see the Basic Obedience Video below with a Lab pup "Star" - before we started to use clicker training - our 1st graduate! We have now increased/improved our training even more and will continue to improve as we continue. Here is a link for our Facebook page for 2 puppies currently in training for Basic, Advanced, then Public Service. You can view daily updates to get a feel for what you can expect. (The videos don't show Focus, Front, or Follow Me as we added them after these training).
