Puppy Training

Congratulations on your new puppy!

Our Puppy Programs listed below will ensure that your puppy grows to become a well-adjusted family member that you desire them to be. People often underestimate the amount of learning that a puppy can handle; puppies are like small children, very impressionable and eager to learn. The key is to keep training short and sweet, puppies love learning, especially when you make it fun and enjoyable. We will focus on teaching them positive behaviors while also correcting any nuisance ones like jumping or mouthing.

Our balanced board and train programs and years of experience are guaranteed to create a dramatic and positive change in you and your dog’s life. We will personally train you and your dog to incorporate the training into everyday life in order to have a happy, harmonious relationship with your dog no matter what age, size or breed. Please explore down this page to learn about all of our different training programs such as board and train, Puppy Camp, and private lessons.

Puppy Head-Start Program

Getting a new puppy can be so exciting, yet very over whelming at the same time. At 8 weeks old your puppy will go through a separation from their mom and littermates which is the only world they have known. This can result in crying and barking through the night because of the stress of learning a new environment and trying to figure out where to potty.

Here at Redmark Kennels, we offer the Puppy Head Start Program. Starting at 8-12 weeks old, your puppy will live in home with one of our certified professional dog trainers and receive 24/7 care. The main goal of this program is Potty Training. Our trainer will be taking your puppy out every 3 hours, day and night, to ensure they understand where to use the bathroom. The key to potty training is prevention of indoor accidents, which means taking the puppy out more often than they need to go. Most people are too busy to handle waking up every 3 hours to potty their puppy day and night and find that turning this job over to the professionals is far easier.

Along with potty training, we will also be teaching all basic obedience commands,

  • Heeling: Learning to walk on a loose leash by your side.
  • Sit-Stay: Learning to sit at doors ways and for long periods of time.
  • Down-Stay: Learning to relax in the down position around other dogs and distractions.
  • Place-Stay: Learning to relax on a dog bed while guest come over.
  • Kennel: Learning that his Crate is a place to relax. This is the most important part of potty training! It helps teach the puppy bladder control because they won’t potty in a confined environment. We aim to make their kennel a positive place where they can go to sleep, eat, and relax.
  • Here: Learning to return to you when called, aka, recall.

Redmark Kennels is a balanced training facility so we believe in teaching dogs what they should do as well as what they shouldn’t be doing. We will introduce the “no” command for mouthing and jumping which are the most common negative puppy behaviors.

During the puppy’s stay they will receive their second round of puppy shots, (first round should be given by the breeder), which is included in the price. This helps ensure your puppy is safe when socializing around other dogs. All dogs at our facility are fully vaccinated to guarantee no illnesses to the puppy during their stay. We are a Parvo free facility! Socializing with other dogs and people at this age is extremely important for developmental growth. Dogs learn from each other so we take advantage of that and teach them how to interact.

This program is 5 weeks long so your puppy will still be very much a puppy when they go home. No need to fear you are missing out on bonding time while they are young.

We will keep you updated throughout the 5 weeks, as well as offer occasional visits during their stay. We know it’s tough to leave your new pup but you will find that is well worth it in the long run.

Puppy Camp

This program is for puppies 4 to 6 months old. During their 2 week stay at Redmark we will be introducing them to all basic obedience commands such as…

  • Heeling: Learning to walk on a loose leash by your side.
  • Sit-Stay: Learning to sit at doors ways and for short periods of time.
  • Down-Stay: Learning to relax in the down position around distractions.
  • Place-Stay: Learning to relax on a dog bed while guest come over.
  • Kennel: Learning that his Crate is a place to relax.
  • Here: Learning to return to you when called, aka, recall.

You can expect your pup to understand all of these commands in a low distraction environment on a 6ft leash. The trainers will also work on socializing your pup to other dogs and teaching them how to interact in large groups. Your puppy will stay in our fully heated/air conditioned training room during the day, Monday through Friday, and then moved into our large, indoor/outdoor, climate controlled kennels at night and on the weekends. All puppies must be vaccinated with their full round of puppy shots as well as the Rabies and Bordetella vaccine.
