Platinum Puppy starts with puppy lessons (private lessons in your home) to address puppy specific issues and goals including: potty/crate training, mouthing/jumping/unwanted behavior issues, works on socialization & confidence building, relaxation and calming techniques, engagement training (teaching your puppy to pay attention you you) and the beginnings of obedience commands.
When your puppy is 5 months old, they start Part 2 (our Good Dog program)- which will cover:
-On-leash manners- walking with a loose leash at your side, no barking/lunging/pulling.
-Off-leash training- we condition the puppy to an e-collar using food to give you off-leash communication & control so your puppy can enjoy the freedom of being a dog off-leash with the safety of knowing you can call him to you easily.
-Strong stays – sit, down, & place. Place is especially great for door manners and when guests come over, or when grandkids are visiting.
-Increased impulse control & ability to stay calm about stimulation. Teaching dogs to make good choices.
Part 2 of Platinum Puppy (when puppy is 5 months old) can be done 3 different ways:
1. Additional Private Lessons- Typically puppies need 5-6 additional private lessons.
2. Day School – you drop your dog off at our training center in the morning (between 8-10 am) Tuesday through Friday and pick-up in the evening (between 4-5 pm). Then you have a 90 minute private lesson with your dog and the trainer on Saturdays. This is a 3 week program. We limit this program to 4 dogs per session. Day School is located at 933 2nd Street, SE, Suite 501, Charlottesville 22902
3. Board & Train is where the dog stays in our trainer’s home for 21 days. Trainer posts daily videos and photos for you to follow along with your dog’s training, and sends weekly detailed updates via email. You have 2 private lessons at your home when the dog goes back home. Additionally the board & train includes Lifetime Training Guarantee- which is free follow-up lessons for life.
Platinum Puppy Program also includes Unlimited Maintenance Group Classes, access to our client private Facebook Group, and all training equipment needed (slip lead, e-collar, place cot, treat pouch, long line).
