30 Day Training Program

Minimum Age: 16 Weeks
Once we develop optimum drive in the puppies, we can take their training to the next level. This is a vital step in their training development. We help them begin to transition from puppies into confident and capable young adults. Once they have a solid foundation in their home-field, they have to learn how to perform everywhere. Any dog can do well in a place they have been before, because they know what to expect, but when you take that familiar element away the puppy no longer has those expectations. At this point, we teach them that they should always follow commands regardless of their changing environment. This is called proofing. We practice this with them under all types of distractions; loud noises, with other people, dogs etc. Through this, the puppies also further develop their indoor skills with open door training, indoor obedience, and much more. Kraftwerk’s Obedience level 3 is a must-have for any young dog.
