Puppies are hard work! They require constant attention, structure, socialization, training and play. If you're interested in having a new puppy in your life, but don't quite have the appropriate amount of time to dedicate to raising one, Emily would love to help! 

Raise and Train Program 

The Raise and Train Program is a fully customizable program to help give your puppy the absolute best start. In this program, your puppy will live with Emily from the time they come home from the breeder to the time they are potty trained, crate trained, have proper socialization, and obedience training. This is a 3 to 5 month long program that covers all the basics, giving you the ability to choose a puppy and their foundation in order to receive the perfect started dog! 

This program is open to any reputably-bred puppy, but all breeders and puppies must be pre-approved for this program. Puppies should be 8-16 weeks old to start and have initial vaccines and a clean bill of health. 

Please reach out at least 2-3 months in advance for scheduling. 

The following are options show a general outline and expectations based on length of time in training:
