Can you do in-home potty training for young puppies?
We cannot do in-home potty training, there is a blog page explaining how to potty train your dog but as of right now we only rent the house and cannot be up every 20 minutes or overnight to let out puppies that are under 3 months and unable to hold their pee. Puppies that young cannot be out around the rest of the dogs and need to be making connections with you at home.

What does my dog need for training and what should I choose?
All dogs need vaccination records showing current ~age appropriate~ Rabies, distemper/parvo and bordetella and signed waiver. Any dogs staying on property for daytrain or board and train will also need a yearly negative fecal. Any training collars or leads can be bought and fitted in class. Dogs staying for board and train will need food in small baggies or hard containers. Private lessons are great to start with for us to teach your dog and you without the distraction of others if you are unsure how your dog will react around other people and dogs.
