Fully Trained Designer Doodles
Our fully trained designer Doodles program is our most exclusive and ensures that you get YOUR perfect puppy!
When you join our elite list for fully trained puppies, you will be receiving a pick of the litter puppy who picked and trained exclusively for you. You will be able to request a specific timeline, color, size and gender that we will do our best to accommodate. Your puppy will be picked based on temperament along with your own individual requests.
Puppies who are a member of this program stay with us for an additional 2 months to receive the best training, tailored to their future owners specific wants and needs.
As a member of this program, you will go on our elite trained puppy list, instead of putting down a deposit to hold your space in line for one of our planned litters. Then, when the puppy we think is a perfect match for you comes along, we will contact you and notify you that we have found a match. At that point, you may accept or reject the puppy. If you accept the puppy, we will begin training around 7 weeks of age.

Advanced Potty Training
At the age of 4 weeks, all of our puppies begin their potty training. For safety reasons, we train the puppies to pine litter versus having them go outdoors, where they can be exposed to various diseases. Our advanced potty training will train your puppy do it's business outside. We keep puppies on a regimented potty schedule, and keep a close watch on them when they are playing indoors or out and encourage and reward them when relieve themselves where we want them to. If you have a specific schedule that you will be able to take them out, we will do our best to customize their training to that schedule. Most puppies will be fully potty trained by the time they go home at 4 months of age, but will require an adjustment period when they enter a new home, and will still need frequent potty breaks as young pups can only hold their bowels for so long.
Advanced Crate Training
Crate training is essential to your puppy's wellbeing. It gives them a place that is 'their own' where they can go if they are tired or scared. it's not 'puppy jail' as many people think. However, it doesn't always feel like it's the safe haven that it's meant to be in the beginning, when your puppy is barking and crying throughout the night only wanting out. This is very normal for puppies to do, but not fun for us to experience! Our advaced crate training course will give your puppy its own individual crate to sleep in at night and during the day for nap and meal times, or any time they cannot be watched closely. The puppy will sleep in a crate at night and we will take it out and comfort it when necessary. It will sleep in our bedroom or living room, just as it would in its new home. Puppies should sleep through the night by the time they go home at 4 months, but we do not guarantee that every puppy sleeps a full 8 hours every night. Again, puppies can only hold their bladders for so long.
Individualized Advanced Socialization
We strongly believe that socialization is the key to making a good puppy into a great dog. Our fully trained puppy package includes advanced, individualized socialization in the very dog-friendly city of Charleston, SC. Your puppy will go on a large number of individual outings to restaurants, stores, festivals and more where it will meet a variety of people and situations. With our individualized program, we will use your questionnaire to ensure that your puppy forms positive association with the things most important to you. This way, your puppy will be well-adjusted puppy to your specific lifestyle. This is something new owners will need to continue after the puppy goes home and throughout the puppy's life.
More Time With Mom
this is one of the biggest perks of our training program. Puppies who stay with their moms longer are proven to be better adjusted. A puppy's mother (or one of the other moms we have here!) can teach it so many things about the world from a dog's perspective than any human can. They essentially show them 'how to be a dog' and how to adjust to the world around them. Their mothers, along with their littermates, teach the puppy bite inhibition, or when they are biting too hard...which comes in handy when teething time comes around!
Knowledge Of Foundation
Nobody knows our puppies better than we do! We sit in the whelping rooms with all of our dogs as they are having their puppies, and help deliver them. We are the first ones see and touch them, the ones to give them their first meal, and are solely responsible for their health for the first couple of months of their lives. We watch their ears and eyes open, and their personalities emerge. We know their parents and their quirks, and have them living in the house with us. Other training programs cannot offer the personalized knowledge of your puppy that we can.
A dog knowing its place in the pack is essential to it's development. All dogs are either an Alpha dog, a Beta Dog, or an Omega dog. We see them start jockeying for position just hours after they are born as they compete for the most milk from their mothers. We again have the knowledge of their foundation and development, but when we are able to keep them longer, it's easier for us to deduce if the puppy is a true alpha, beta, or omega dog. At our facility, we have a well-adjusted pack of dogs, and the puppies will get to experience and interact with them on a daily basis. Of course, most people only have one or two dogs, but the puppy understanding where they belong in the pack will make them easier to train, and easier for you as their owner to understand their tendencies.
While staying with us an extra two months, your puppy will continue to receive the best of care. Each day, it will be provided with high-quality puppy food, a NuVet Vitamin, and any additional vaccines or preventative medications that may been needed. Veterinary care will be provided as needed, though we do require that you activate a trupanion puppy insurance certificate prior to the beginning of your puppy's training.
"Favorites & Essentials" Starter Pack
Along with our Four-week Individualized program, we are including our "favorites & Essentials" starter pack, which are the best tools for tools for training success! You will get a starter size wire crate with divider, a 4-Pack of our favorite training treats to continue your puppy's training success, your choice of color in a snuggle puppy, which is a stuffed puppy that has a heat and heartbeat pack that is designed to feel like your puppy's littermates. You will also receive one toy specifically bought for your puppy. For example, if your puppy loves to think, we will provide it with a 'thinking' toy. Love to fetch? You'll get our favorite rubber ball. Eats too fast? Slow-feeder bowl for you! All these things come in addition to your puppy's regular go-home packet, which includes health records and other useful tips for puppy ownership.
