8 WEEK PUPPY PRESCHOOL
SKIP STRAIGHT TO THE FUN PART!
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.
FOR 8 WEEKS
** cost added on to cost of puppy**
After you have been approved and joined a litter list, you can opt to enroll your puppy in our puppy preschool program! Please notify us prior to your puppy's six week birthday if you would like to enroll your puppy in our six week preschool.
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 six 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 1 to 2 hours of your puppy's personal JLDD Puppy Trainer's time. They will demonstrate and explain your puppy's individual training progress and how to continue.
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. We offer additional Private Lessons to further assist you personally in your home.
