YOUR PUPPY PARTNERS
It takes more than obedience training to develop a puppy into a well-mannered family pet. At The Oaks Dog Ranch, we work in partnership with YOU to help your puppy achieve his/her potential as your companion. To do this, we combine positively-reinforced socialization, desensitization, bite inhibition, bathroom skills and GOOD MANNERS with traditional training like "sit" and "come".
WAY MORE THAN
We do all of this in a custom-designed learning center we call “The Puppy Depot.” This 1,200 sq. ft classroom connects with a beautiful play yard full of puppy-friendly obstacles to provide your puppy with the perfect environment to learn and grow, all while having FUN!
PUPPY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The Basics Module
We start our Puppy Development Program with a five-day foundation-setting module. During these five days, your puppy will:
meet new friends – both canine and human, and learn how to play and interact appropriately with them
face “small challenges” to desensitize him/her to scary new things and experiences
understand that biting hurts
generalize the instinct to use the bathroom in an appropriate place & learn the crate is a fun, safe place to be
discover the basis for good manners – “pay attention” and “four on the floor"
be introduced to the fundamental obedience skills for a companion dog
(sit, down, touch, stay, come, take it/leave it/drop it)
Puppy Development Follow Up
After your puppy completes The Basics Module, they can continue their learning path with additional Puppy Development Days. Your puppy can return to The Puppy Depot on any schedule that meets your goals for them until they reach six months of age. These follow up options can be purchased in 5 or 3 day packages or individual days and do not need to be scheduled consecutively.
