We currently have indoor-outdoor runs, and fenced-in back and front yards. Dogs have plenty of room to run and play with other dogs.
We start each pup as if he or she will be a service or therapy dog. We train in public places such as Lowes and Home Depot in the garden section, in front of grocery stores, convenience stores, Walmart, and anywhere where other dogs have not been to keep the pups safe from disease. We try to introduce many new situations to the puppy to develop his social skills and acclimate him to different public places. We always keep in mind the puppy’s personality and never push him more than he can comfortably do and learn. At this age, learning should be lots of fun and very rewarding for the pups. Any pup can learn to sit in your kitchen, but what we strive for is a puppy who will have good manners in public situations and be a pleasure to teach and live in our homes. After training, we will meet you and go over what your pup has accomplished and help you to continue on with his training. Please bring something to video the exercises so you can review them at home. We are available for any questions or help that we can give you after you take your puppy home as well. Each pup learns at a different rate according to age and maturity, so it is difficult to predict how much can be accomplished in a given period of time. After about a week, we can better predict a time frame of training depending on what you want to be accomplished. Please remember that this training must be continued after your puppy goes home….the more time, training, and love you put into your puppy, the more rewards you will receive by having an obedient and loving dog that you will be proud to have as a member of your family.
SERVICE DOGS: Families requesting to be considered for a puppy to train as a service dog MUST have a trainer involved who will come and access a litter for the best match for the family given the needs the service dog will be trained to do… This is not an inexpensive process. I require an additional $500 as well. Contact me if there is truly a need for this with your family..If local to Atlanta contact Mark Spivak at CPT dog training for assistance… Please click the CPT link provided to learn more how the process works.

It’s never too young to start their training and the younger you start, the more confident your pup will be.
