Wilmington Dog Wizard Premier Puppies
Want an amazing dog but dreading going through the puppy stage? You are not alone. It can be stressful, messy and sometimes painful! Those puppy teeth are sharp! It is so important that we do right by our puppies in the most influential period of their lives. Experiences at that age will last a lifetime and it is important that we get it right!
We are now offering the perfect solution to get the best puppy/dog you can get with our Wilmington Dog Wizard Premier Puppy Program!
What Is A Premier Puppy?
A Premier Puppy is handpicked for your family, fully trained, well socialized, well adjusted, well mannered, confident, happy, and obedient pup that everyone will love to be around! A Premier Puppy will make an incredible addition to any home.
We have partnered with the best breeders around to make sure you are getting the highest quality dog possible!(other breeds will be considered at request as long as we feel they are suitable for you and your family)! All puppies come from the highest quality AKC registered bloodlines, and all parents fully OFA health certified for hips, eyes, elbows, and more. Health is the utmost importance to us when making the investment in your next companion. Temperament is the next most important factor when choosing a puppy! So we have found breeders that make health and temperament their priority and only breed to produce the most well adjusted, friendliest dogs!
What Will My Premier Puppy Learn?
Your puppy will be given a massive head start on socialization and life skills right from the beginning at 7 weeks of age! Did you know everything you do with your puppy before 16 weeks sticks with them for the rest of their life? We want to make sure we expose them to all the crazy things in life and show them our world is not so scary. They will also learn important life skills that will need to stick with them forever. This includes crate training, housebreaking, confidence building, problem solving, stress coping and on leash and off leash obedience. It is important we lay a very strong foundation for your puppy while they are young so it will last!
Premier Puppies will learn all basic commands on and off leash, as well as some basic fun tricks!
Here is a list of commands you can expect your puppy to know at graduation:
Name Recognition- Learning their name.
Heel (Moving)- Walking on your left side with a loose leash with their head near your leg.
Heel (Standing Still)- Moves to your left side in sitting position.
Come- Come when your called, all the way to you and finish in a sit.
Sit- Putting their hind end on the ground. The stay is implied until given a release word or a different command.
Down- Lay down on with elbows touching the ground. The stay is implied until given a release word or a different command.
Place- Go to a spot of different height or texture and stay there until released or given a different command (example, dog bed).
Off- Stop doing the behavior they are doing.
Out- Releasing a toy or bone.
Crate- Go into their crate.
Load up- Get into the car..
Lets Go- Follow me, we are moving somewhere.
Yes- Marks a behavior that you liked that you will reward for.
Good- Marks a behavior you like that they should continue to do.
Nope- Marks a behavior you didn’t want and they should try again.
Break- They are all done doing what you asked.(release word)
Off Leash Advanced Obedience
At 8 months old your puppy will return to us for 2 more weeks to finish out their Advanced Off Leash training. This is what we call “sealing the deal” where all the obedience will be proofed around distractions in all environments using the remote collar. Having your dog remote collar trained will ensure your dog will listen no matter the distraction and build a trust and bond with your dog like you have never had before! After the two weeks is complete we will do another Go-Home lesson to teach you and the family everything they need to know about your dogs new advanced training!
All puppies will come home with a treat pouch, slip lead, food and Mini Educator ET-300 Electronic collar
Where will my puppy stay and can I visit?
Your puppy will live with one of our trainers in their home as a member of their pack. They will join them at work every day. We encourage you be apart of your puppy’s learning during this process. We will schedule an appointment every 3 weeks so you can visit your puppy and we can start teaching you, the owners, what you will need to know to keep your puppy successful.
What vet care will my puppy receive?
Your pup stay up to date on all vaccinations and check ups, along with monthly heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention from the vet of your choosing. Please note: All Vet bills (Medication, Flea/tick, Heartworm) are the responsibility of the owner.
Training is a lifelong commitment to your dog. The success of your puppy depends on the commitment of your follow through after graduation. We will make sure you and your family are very comfortable and understand everything to help your puppy be successful. We will give you all the tools necessary to make things clear and simple to make sure everything sticks long term. Having a WDW Premier Puppy comes with some awesome perks! It gives you unlimited access to our trainers for the life of your puppy. This includes follow-up appointments, text, calls, and email. In addition, you may come to our free group classes every Saturday for the life of your puppy. We will ensure you one amazing dog but to reiterate, it is CRUCIAL that you are committed to continuing everything your puppy has learned!
