1. ADOPT ONE OF OUR GRADUATES
For owners searching for their future best friend we sometimes have a few adoptable puppies for you to choose from. These puppies are carefully selected and temperament tested before they even start training, to ensure we are only training and offering the best for our clients. They come from outstanding breeders with healthy and stable adult dogs, and have the personalities that make them ideal family dogs! Our puppies have also become service and therapy dogs and are located across the states.
We will only accept puppies from high-quality breeders that meet our standards:
- Health tested adult dogs
- OFA certified hips and elbows OR PennHip.
- At least one dog of the breeding pair is clear of all hereditary genetic diseases pertaining to the breed.
- Adult dogs, and any dogs that will be around the puppies must have solid temperaments and good personalities.
- Puppies must be raised indoors. We do not accept puppies from kennels or puppy mills.
- No history of parvovirous or other life-threatening communicable diseases among previous or current puppies.

3. LET’S FIND A PUPPY FOR YOU!
Whether you’re looking for a service dog candidate, a companion to hike with, or your family’s next best friend, we are here to help you find and train that perfect dog.
We start the journey by providing a our clients with a comprehensive questionnaire, to find out exactly what they want and NEED in a puppy. We discuss the GENDER, SIZE, ACTIVITY LEVEL and BREED of puppy they would like trained for their family, while also taking into consideration the puppy’s desired purpose (service, therapy, family pet, working dog, etc.)
STEP 2: WHAT WILL MY PUPPY LEARN?
We offer three training programs for you to choose from: Jump Start Puppy, Amazing Puppy, and Elite Puppy.
JUMP START PUPPY
This program gives new owners a head start on potty training, house manners, and important life skills! Your puppy will learn how to tell you when he needs to go potty, politely greet new people and dogs, sleep through the night in their crate, and how to interact with the world in a positive way.
We call this our “JUMP START” program
This program is best for new puppy owners who would like a head start on potty training, crate training, socialization, and obedience training.

Puppies in training live in our trainer’s homes where they are given around-the-clock supervision, training, and attention. They go for daily socailzation outings where they meet new people, animals, sights, sounds, and smells, and take part in multiple training sessions a day.
In order to have a strong relationship with your puppy, we HEAVILY ENCOURAGE owners to come down and visit! We’ll even allow you to bring your puppy home for the weekend! This way, our owners get an inside look at our training program, have a chance to practice commands and behaviors their puppies are learning, and become an essential part of the raising process.
If you aren’t able to visit their puppies throughout their training program, though, don’t worry. Our program is timed specifically to send puppies home during their crucial bonding periods so they will quickly and easily fall in love with their new owners as if they’ve known them their entire lives.
To make it even better, while the puppy is in training we keep the owner in the loop by filming, recording, and documenting the training process. We want our clients to UNDERSTAND their puppy’s training so they can have the same results we do.
When the puppy has finished training it’s finally time to welcome them home!
FOR UTAH OWNERS:
Don’t worry about scheduling a trip down because we’ll hand-deliver your puppy right to your home!
When your puppy comes home we’ll spend an afternoon going over everything your puppy learned during their stay with us. We will demonstrate all the commands and behaviors, discuss training topics and methods, and give you the oportunity to practice these new skills one-on-one with your puppy.
Once the puppy has settled in we’ll begin our follow-up training and support. Each program has a customized ammount of follow-up training options, including in-home sessions, day train packages, and additional board and train weeks. These follow-up options are great for tweaking and modifying training to make it. It also gives us a chance to address any budding behavioral issues with the puppy, train new commands as needed, and answer any questions the owner may have.
With all of our programs, we also offer life-long training support through text, call, email, and private sessions. This way, no matter what’s going on with their puppy, our clients have the ability to reach out to us! If we can address the issue over the phone, perfect. If the owner needs one-on-one help, we will schedule a private session within the next few hours and get it taken care of.
FOR OUT-OF-STATE OWNERS:
We have puppies located across the States and have developed a special Transition Program especially for these owners!
A few days begore your puppy is scheduled to come home we will record and send you a detailed Graduation Video starring your puppy! In this video, we go over everything your puppy has learned during their stay with us, walk through and demonstrate commands and behaviors, and discuss essential training topics. With this video you will always have something to look back on and review as you settle in with your new puppy.
