Puppy Kindergarten - ( 1month) - This option is great for those who are
familiar with training a young puppy but would like a little head-start. It is crate/leash training, basic manners .
He/she will be a little older , 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 wks or
so when you get him.
The fee for the one-month training
is $1,000.00 which is included in the price of a kindergarten level puppy. So, a puppy costing 3,000.00 will be 4,000.00
after completing kindergarten.
Grammar school-( 2 months) - The grammar school
level puppy will be approx 16 weeks old and will have had two months of training building on the previous level. Puppy will
be fully crate trained and able to make it through the night most nights and several hours through the day in the crate.
Puppy will be started on the 'sit', 'down', and 'no', commands and introduced to the tell bell on the door when going
outside from the crate. Manners ( no bite, no jump, etc) will be enforced in this program as well as increased socialization,
introduction to grooming, car rides, and manners. Fee for a grammar school level puppy will be 5,500.00 total.
Puppy High School- ( Beginning House and Obedience
Training- 3 months)- This training option includes everything described in the Grammar School and adds introduction
to House Training. A High school level puppy will be approx 5 months old. 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 pet-friendly facilities 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 puppy that has completed
the high school training will be 7,500.00.

|Stormy at 5 months
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."
