HOW IT WORKS

  • 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.

  • Your puppy will graduate Puppy Culture (our daily socialization program from birth-8 weeks) and begin training at 8 weeks of age. Then graduate formal training and come home at 20 weeks (5 months) of age.

  • Living with one of our experienced trainers 24/7 for 12 weeks.

  • Individual updates and report cards from our trainer every week - including photos and videos of your puppy's progress.

  • FREE DELIVERY within 4 hours of our facility in Charleston, SC. 

  • Prior to your puppy's arrival home, you will get a transition guide to help your puppy transition into your home flawlessly. This will include a video of the commands your puppy knows and how to get them to be obedient to that, as well as a written guide and schedule for their daily activities.

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

  • Price of training is added to the cost of your puppy. Deposits for training puppies is $1,000. The full amount for your puppy ($4,500) plus half the training ($5,000) is due at the puppy's 7 week birthday when matches are announced, and the other half of your puppy's training cost ($5,000) is due when your puppy is halfway through training (6 weeks in). 

  • 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.
