The benefits of Puppy Preschool (for puppies 8 to 16 weeks) include a private consultation for you and your puppy with one of our trainers and weekly classes. These classes offer exercises in socialization, confidence-building, and handling for you and your puppy as well as solutions for basic problem solving. The ultimate goal of these sessions is to guide you and your puppy in the critical communication process and development of trust that is essential to your relationship. Your puppy will also gain a better understanding of what is appropriate behavior around other people and other dogs.
With any program, a collar or leash is included and your expectations are met, thus your approval and satisfaction is required. With private or group lessons it is your responsibility to work and train your dog to achieve the desired approval and satisfaction. A private lesson averages 60 minutes in length and must allow time (2-3 days) before the next lesson, normal time is a week. This gives you time to work with your dog. A mileage fee may be assessed for miles driven outside our zip code. With any residency program you may up-grade at any time to the next program.Please note that all training programs work on behavioral issues such as: jumping, chewing, digging, housebreaking, crate training, play biting, leash pulling, whining/barking, car chasing, excited or submissive urination, leg mounting, counter surfing, getting into the trash, eating poop, food/toy possessiveness, and many other behavioral issues. When dealing with separation anxiety, shy/timidness, confidence building, or aggression issues, extra training time and expense may be required to help your dog reach its full potential.Your dog will also learn “get it, bring it, take it and drop it” for those times when your dog has something they are not supposed to and for great fine tuning communication and training skills. This is wonderful exercise for the dog while allowing you the opportunity to practice your training and leadership skills.With any residency or training program at KDT dogs are required to have the following vaccinations: DHLP, Parvo, Bordatella, and Rabies. And you must fill out the Owner and Pet information form, Terms and Conditions form and if necessary a medication form prior to releasing your dog to our care.
