Note that there is a second level of this program called "Puppy Pre-school Advanced Program" which is priced based on a few more additional options which adds $300.00 to the Pre-school price.

The Puppy Pre-school Training Course introduces your puppy to a new world, the basics of learning. The realization that there is more than just sleep and play. That the sounds coming from us humans are more than just strange noises. This will be the beginning of life rules. The ABC’s of the young Dobe's mind as well as their very first rule of life - 'feet on the ground'. The ultimate bonus with our team at the end of the leash is similar to our schooling. We retained more from the educators we liked then those individuals we deemed boring.
The puppy will learn the leash and collar means more human attention while it actually is learning how to please us. In turn the young student will walk on lead upon arrival. The Puppy Pre-school Course also includes introducing the youngster to walking on your left side along with an introduction to the sit, down and come. An added bonus - an introduction to the up and down rules of stairs and the pup steps into your life before it turns 14 to 16 weeks of age. We also do not use "Electric" or spike collars and you will get a video report card before placement to study.
To advance the pup thru SP1 would add four additional weeks. Advancing through SP2 brings the total in-school time from start of Pre-school through SP2 means the pup arrives around 20 weeks of age.
