I offer custom board and train programs designed to meet
the needs of you and your canine friend.
We train all breeds of dogs for all levels of obedience.
The Puppy Package: 12 weeks through 6 months, 600.00

This program is designed to help create a confident dog well on its way to becoming your ideal
family companion. We will imprint each foundational command upon which all future obedience
skills are built.

For your puppy: A 2 week stay at our home. We will address crate training, chewing, Mannerly
leash walking, and riding in a car. We will introduce basic commands to include Sit,
Down, Stay, Come, Off and Leave it, all on a 6 foot leash. Puppies interact freely with
dogs of various ages and dispositions. Cats are introduced inside the house. Puppies also
socialize and interact with visitors and family members.

For you: A private lesson here at Von Hartwin Kennels to train you, the owner of the dog, to
perform all the training techniques properly so that your dog responds to you and your training.
