Lab Puppy Training


For those of you who would like your lab puppy training to be already started, we offer a 14 day program. Our Best Start program is designed for us to keep your lab puppy until week 10 while it undergoes formal training 2-4 times a day. Puppy training intensity is based on how your lab responds. In addition, informal socializing with our family is explored. We will start your lab's training for the following: respond to their name, sit, stay, off, potty training, walk on a loose leash, down, and fetch. 

One of the most important things during the weeks 8-16 of your lab puppy's life is being taught to follow rather than lead. As your breeder we will begin the training process and spend time with you when you pick up your new puppy teaching you how to carry on the training and answering any questions you may have. Your lab puppy will socialize daily with other dogs and the members of our family and will be exposed to various noizes and terrain.

Cost for the Lab Puppy Best Start Training Program is $45 per day or $630 for the 14 day duration. 


Due to the huge amount of time taken with each puppy we can only accept 2 puppies at any one time.
