This is an exclusive program offered to customers of Snickersdoodles which will allow your puppy to attend a Puppy Boot Camp training program prior to you bringing home your fur-baby!!  What a great way to start your puppy off on the right paw.


Are you gearing up to take home your sweet bundle of joy but either don't have the time get get them off on the right paw or aren't sure what to do? Well we have partnered with  a professional dog trainer to offer my customers the perfect start for their Snickersdoodles puppy - a one week Board & Train Puppy Boot Camp!!  This is a 7-day on-sight board and train program in the trainers home.  Puppy Boot Camp is the solution for YOU!  


During the First 12 weeks of a puppies life, it is the equivalent to the first 5 years of a young child's life. They learn necessary socializing, and it is a very important stage in their development.  By the end of 12 weeks, his or her core of social development is over!  They also go through what is 

called a 'fear period' during this stage that stems from their candid days before dogs were domesticated and unusual things can cause weird fears later in adult dogs. This period of 8-12 weeks is known as the "I'm Afraid of Everything Stage" and imagine you're taking your young child through ages 2-5 in only 4 weeks!  Whew, that's a LOT!! That's why, in the hands of a certified trainer, we offer this program steaming from 1-4 weeks long at a low cost price!   But what will your sweet baby learn while with Dogs R Us, and how does Puppy Boot Camp work?
