Skip the hardest parts of puppy ownership...and go right for the FUN parts! 

Our Level 2 Puppy Preschool Program not only works more on frustrating crate and potty training, but also focuses on training your puppy to your specific lifestyle. We spend time socializing your puppy and helping them better understand the world around them, and how to behave in it! We work on obedience, leash walking, and more in this program. If you want more, please check out our FULLY TRAINED puppies.




** cost added on to cost of puppy**


Training is based on availability of trainers and can be added on at the time of litter commitment! 


  • After we have matched you with the perfect puppy for you, if you have already purchased training for your puppy, we will go over any questions you may have and then assign your puppy a trainer based on availability

  • Price of training is added to the cost of your puppy. Balances for both your puppy and the full amount of training are due at puppy's seven week birthday. Additional days/weeks/months can be added on for the rate listed above.

  • Your puppy will graduate Puppy Culture and enroll formal training at 8 weeks of age, and complete training at 16 weeks, or 4 months old.

  • Puppy will be living with one of our JLDD Puppy Trainers 24/7 for 8 weeks.

  • After Puppy Preschool is complete, you receive instruction from your puppy's trainer explaining your puppy's schedule, nuances, routines, and will help assist you with how to best transition your puppy into your household. This will include a video of your puppy's commands (including hand signals) that you will need to mimic.

  • Please expect some transition issues with your puppy in the first few weeks as they are still a baby. You will be asked to schedule a zoom session with our head trainer prior to your puppy's arrival home. This session is meant to assist you as your puppy assimilates into its new life with you!

  • We understand that training never really ends with a puppy! They will need practice and reinforcement until at least 1 to 2 years of age. 

  • If your puppy is has not met our expectations by the time their graduation date arrives, they will be kept in preschool free of charge until they have satisfied the expectation.
