Boot Camp for Moss Creek Goldendoodle Puppies

McDoodles Boot Camp for Puppies is the original puppy training program. The first of its kind, our puppy course was developed years ago to enable families to experience the joy of bringing a puppy into their home even if they don't have the time or desire to commit to the intensive task of early puppyhood training.

We have successfully trained many Moss Creek Goldendoodle puppies for individuals and families all over the United States and overseas.

Our Boot Camp has been called the best early puppyhood training program by our satisfied customers, many of whom look to our services again with either a second doodle or by referring friends.

What makes our program superior to those who've copied our concept is our focus on individualized attention. We don't mass-train large numbers of puppies in assembly-like fashion, but concentrate instead on the quality of training.

Your puppy receives the kind of one-on-one training necessary to identify areas that need correction and redirection as well as solidifying learned skills.

Unique Training for Family Environment

Our program was uniquely designed to help your puppy transition from its mom and littermates to a family environment. This includes showing your puppy where it's appropriate to potty, how to alert you when they need to potty, how to remain calm and play independently without constant attention. The puppy learns what acceptable interaction with people and their belongings are, and is put on a daily schedule to create structure and manageability. This early puppyhood training is very important in setting the tone for what is expected of the puppy. If this training is not done, the puppy quickly becomes out of control and difficult to live with. All of this training is done by integrating your puppy into our family where each member, children included is involved in the training, especially when it comes to manners. Depending on the training session you choose, your puppy will come home with full working knowledge of basic and intermediate commands such as "sit, down, wait, go out, go potty, no bite, off, leave it, okay, let's go" and so on. Other skills such as leash walking are also mastered.

Customized for Families with Children

If you have young children in your home, we will pay special attention to socializing the pup with our kids and neighborhood children. Above and beyond the usual activities, our children will hand feed your puppy, handle it during meal times, help with grooming, and leash walking. The puppy will learn to take commands from children, play without biting or jumping, and see them as being above them in the pack. Our kids are very assertive and consistent when interacting with the puppies. You will need to continue this with your children when the puppy comes home.

We offer many different programs to accommodate a variety of lifestyles. Boot Camp fees are $600/week with a two week minimum. Consider your goals, family needs, and the time and energy you are willing to commit to your new addition when reserving your puppy's training stay.
