All of our puppies will have some degree of training included
in his/her adoption fee. The levels of training that puppy may have are described below, but are included in the adoption
fee of the puppy. So, a puppy with the pre-school level of training will be 3,350.00 ,-4,150.00 depending on which breed,
size, etc. The prices below are to give you an idea of what to expect to pay for a puppy with any of the below-described levels
of training. Call us if you wish to adopt a puppy with no training and we can arrange for you to reserve before training starts.
Puppy Kindergarten - ( 1month) - This
option is great for those that work through the week and need a little extra help with getting puppy off to a good start.
It is crate/leash training just the same as the two-wk course, except twice as long. This gives puppy more time to be
completely comfy in the crate so he/she can make it through the night ( most nights) without needing to go out. He/she
will be a little older too, which helps with the whole ' holding it' thing. He/she will be given the 9 wk and
the 12-wk vaccination with this option and another de-worming or two. Puppy would be around 12 -16 wks or so when you
The fee for the one-month training is $
500.00 which is included in the kindergarten level puppy price.
Puppy Grammar School- ( 1
month )- This Puppy training option is also a month in duration, but incorporates a few simple
commands and introduction to the 'tell bell' on the door. Puppy will start learning the 'sit' and 'down' commands using treats
, verbal, and hand signals. The puppy is also started on the recall command ( 'here Benji' ), and given praise and treat.
Manners are worked on with this option, such as no bite, no jump,
The fee for this option is. $1,000.00 and is included in the adoption fee of a grammer school level puppy.
Puppy High School- ( Beginning House and Obedience
Training- 6 weeks)- This training option includes everything described in the Grammar School and adds introduction to House
Training. Puppy will spend time in the house away from the other puppies and be encouraged to going to the door, touching
the bell with guidance and reward, before going out and encouraged to potty in yard. Treats and praise are always our
methods used in any training situation. After a successful ' go' in the yard, puppy will walk on leash and do some simple
commands such as ' sit', ' down', and the recall command, all the while working on manners such as not jumping up on people,
walking nicely on the leash, etc. With this option puppy will also be taken on car rides and get to meet strangers to work
on socialization with others besides us. After completion, puppy will be well on his way to being house-trained and with supervision
and consistency he will have very few accidents. Keep in mind, puppy is still a puppy, and this is beginning house training.
You will need to be consistent and continue the same training when you get him home. Your house and people are new, and it
will take time for him to adjust and learn your body language and routine. No puppy can be expected to be 100% house trained
until about a year old, so please know that there will still be a little effort required from you to complete his house training.
If you are not picking up in person, we will send a video of what we are doing so you can see how to continue his training
once you get him. I will also send home a summary of what we have done and what you need to do to be successful once
you get him home. We are always available for any questions you may have as you get him settled in. A High-School level
puppy adoption fee will be approx . 5,500.00 to 6,300.00 depending on breed, size ,etc.
From the owner of Stormy, our Bernedoodle 6- month old just out of the high school training......"Stormy
has been such an amazing addition to our family. We drove to Liberty Pines to pick her up, and the second we met her we knew
how special she was. Getting a puppy seemed overwhelming to us, but all of the stress that comes along with training a dog
was erased. Every promise that Melisa made about her training was completely true. She knows all of her commands, goes straight
to the door when she needs out, and could not be more loving and social. After only having her for a week, it feels like she
has been our dog forever. Since she is so well trained and socialized, we are able to take her everywhere with us! People
are shocked at how young she is because she is just so well behaved. Stormy has really exceeded all of our expectations and
we could not imagine doing it any other way."
