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 begining of life rules. The young dobes ABC’s as well as thier first rules 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 educators we deemed boring.
The puppy will learn the leash and collar means more human attention, not some form of punishment, it actually is learning how to please us and live in our world. The Puppy Pre-school Course also includes introducing the youngster to walking on your left side along with an introduction to 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 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 the pup arrives around 24 weeks of age.
