Puppy Preschool Boarding

-and-

Board and Train

 
To ensure that your dog is a good fit for our program, and to familiarize you with our training methods and style we require a minimum of 1 Private in home training session prior to qualifying for a board-and-train program.

Our Puppy Philosophy

Ambassador Bullies believes that puppies should be allowed to discover the world through sensory enrichment, appropriate play, canine social mentors and of course training. 

Our puppy training is done through shaping* behaviors we want first, then we "train" skills and add expectations and accountability over time.

*Shaping basically just means that we use a series of steps to teach your dog to do a new behavior. By breaking the behavior into easily-achievable steps, your dog will feel successful during the training process. This will also speed up learning and reduce confusion and frustration. Most importantly, as your dog learns more and more new behaviors using shaping and positive reinforcement, he will start to enjoy learning new things and will look forward to interacting with you during training.
