10 weeks of KeenCamp for 10 weeks and older.
From 6-10 weeks of age KeenDog trainers work hand in hand with the breeder after the top puppy pick has been chosen to fit your lifestyle and family’s needs. Fundamental training on obedience, socialization, desensitization, confidence building and name recognition is done at the breeders until 10 weeks of age. From 10-20 weeks of age your puppy lives with one or two KeenDog trainers in their homes as a member of our pack. Our puppies have had extensive house breaking, crate training, socialization in a wide variety of environments and with different dogs and people, obedience trained both on leash and with e-collar, have calm overall demeanors and are just simply a pleasure to be around and to continue to train with.
If local to the Greater Charlotte area we welcome families to train with us and your puppy throughout their time with us to be apart of the process and to develop the bond you share. If you are out of the area, we still welcome you, but will also travel to wherever you live and stay for 3-4 days to transfer the training over smoothly. We understand that most people aren’t dog trainers, so what comes natural to us isn’t so natural to most. The most important thing when receiving a trained dog is to know how to train it yourself! By the time your puppy goes home it will have a very solid foundation of how to behave well, but needs follow through from the owners in a fun and cohesive way. That is why we stay for an extended period of time, typically fitting in 9 training sessions. We do multiple session at your home and wherever you go around town such as a restaurant, coffee shop, park, boat, kid’s soccer games, etc…we want all family members to be comfortable with how to communicate properly to your dog in whatever environment you are in!
