Our Training Programs

Aside from breeding, training dogs is one of my great passions in life. Beginning in 2023, we will be offering a Puppy Kindergarten program where puppies will stay with us for 4 or 8 additional weeks (going home at 12 or 16 weeks, respectively) to get a head start on potty training, crate training, additional socialization, and introduction to basic obedience commands. Additionally, we are in the process of adding a program for training and selling pet dogs between 12 and 18 months of age. These dogs will have been socialized with a variety of people and dogs, know basic pet obedience such as sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, etc, as well as being crate and potty trained.

Puppy Kindergarten

Puppy Kindergarten is a great add-on for puppy buyers looking for a head start on their puppy's training and socialization. We have limited spaces for Puppy Kindergarten, so if you are interested in this program, please let us know ASAP. For puppies being enrolled in our Puppy Kindergarten, the buyer must pay for the puppy in full after it has been selected for them, and payment for the training program is due one week prior to the scheduled pick up. These programs are geared towards pet puppies, but adjustments can be made if a buyer is interested in a foundation geared towards dog sports. Puppy Kindergarten is ideal for those who wish to bring home a dog while it is still a puppy, but has been started on all the necessary skills to be an excellent companion. 

4 WEEK PROGRAM: $2,900

Our 4 week program is ideal for those who still want to welcome home a puppy while it is still quite young and who has been started on the following skills:

  • Potty training

  • Crate training

  • Sit, down, and luring concepts

  • Recall (come)

  • Walking on a leash

  • Clicker loading

  • Beginnings of no jumping and no biting

  • Socialization

In this program, we are laying the foundation for a great dog, but it is up to the new owner to continue to build upon the dog's training. 

8 WEEK PROGRAM: $5,500

Our 8 week program is more extensive and provides a more solid foundation for those looking for the absolute best head start available. These puppies work to develop the following skills:

  • Potty training

  • Crate training

  • Sit, down, and luring concepts

  • Recall (come)

  • Sit/down stay

  • Place (stay on a dog bed)

  • Walking on a loose leash

  • Clicker loading

  • Beginnings of no jumping

  • No biting

  • Socialization

This program is more in depth than our 4 week program, but is still not able to achieve perfection. Think of the 8 week program like a solid foundation and the framework of a great home. The building blocks are good, but the home will still need insulation, electricity, and drywall before it is finished.

Well Mannered Companions

Introducing our new program: trained pet dogs. We take all of the guesswork out! Occasionally, we will hold back a dog until it is between 12 and 18 months of age to learn all about how to be an excellent canine member of society. These dogs will become available close to or after their first birthday to insure that they go to a home most suitable to their temperament, and they will be ready to go to their new home after we are satisfied they meet our criteria. White Swiss Shepherds are a fabulous breed but due to their high emotional intelligence and sensitive nature, they require careful rearing to insure they do not develop any problem behaviors such as reactivity. Dogs who have completed this program at the "Furraris" of White Swiss Shepherds. Given our many years' experience training shepherd dogs, we are knowledgeable and successful in curbing unwanted behaviors and promoting good behaviors. These dogs are ideal for individuals who don't have enough time to dedicate to a growing puppy, but who still want a well trained dog to blend into their family. We only take on a small number of dogs at a time for this program to insure the best possible training and socialization.

Dogs from our extensive pet training program will be proficient in the following areas:

  • Dog neutral to social

  • People neutral to social

  • Tolerant of handling/grooming

  • Potty trained

  • Crate trained (quiet and clean)

  • No jumping/polite greetings

  • Basic obedience commands on and off leash: recall, stay, sit, down, place

  • Walking on a loose leash

  • Impulse control

For best results, the new owner must continue to enforce the behaviors we have taught after the dog has gone to it's new home. Knowing this can be challenging, we offer lifetime support for dogs who have completed this program. Our clients become a part of our extended family and we are more than happy to answer any questions that may arise for the lifetime of the dog.

Pricing starts at $19500, inclusive of our $4500 puppy price and twelve months of training.

See below for available students/graduates.
