About Our Puppies
All Puppies Go Home with Training!
All of our puppies come with Foundational Puppy Preschool Training completed. That means your new puppy will be started on crate training, socialization, obedience (such as sitting, walking on a leash, and recalling), impulse control, resource guarding prevention, and will have started learning manners around people and in the house.
Please note that since we are working with puppies, whatever training we do here is only as good as the consistency and follow-up you provide at home, and failure to continue to work with your dog at home will significantly impact your dog's retention of our Foundation Preschool Training.
We don't send home untrained puppies, and don't offer foundational puppy preschool as an add-on cost. We feel that it is our responsibility to provide you with a puppy that has had the best preparation for a successful life as possible. Period. In our opinion, there is no other way to raise a puppy or to ensure the best possibility for its success in life.
Please see our Testimonials page and our How Our Puppies Are Different page or call us for more information on just how important training is and why there is such an advantage to taking home a Cosmopolitan puppy.
BE CERTAIN YOU ARE GETTING WHAT YOU PAY FOR
Many breeders say they use Puppy Culture but really don't follow or even perform the program at all. To ensure your breeder is actually raising Puppy Culture puppies, always request videos of the puppies and or/process as proof. Our videos can be found here.)
All puppies are raised using Puppy Culture and Avidog protocols and are started on their crate training and beginning clicker-based obedience training before they go home with you. Since they are puppies, they will not be fully trained, fully crate trained, or housebroken, but we start much of the training process for you while they are with us as young pups. We socialize them with children, dogs, cats, horses, and other animals. Puppies are all microchipped and will have had all appropriate vaccinations and deworming for their age.
This video gives a short overview of our puppy development and enrichment program.

Have been through our Puppy Culture PLUS development and enrichment program (NOTE: Many breeders say they use Puppy Culture but really don't follow or even do the program at all. To ensure your breeder is actually raising Puppy Culture puppies, always request videos of the puppies and or/process as proof. Our videos can be found here.)
Foundational puppy training started (clicker/positive reinforcement training)—Puppies go home knowing how to sit, walk on a leash, go to their crate. They will have started learning manners, such as to sit to come out of their playpen, not to jump on people for attention, and to sit quietly in front of you when they want attention or treats. Click here for a sample video of what a typical puppy knows when it goes home.
Raised in a loving home, not a breeding kennel. All of our dogs live in homes.
Personal pre-take-home professional behavioral consultation to help you prepare for and integrate your puppy into your home ($250 value).
SuperPuppy neurological imprinting (also known as Biosensor or Early Neurological Stimulation) as well as traditional handling imprinting
In-home socialization with other dogs, children, cats, horses, donkeys, and more
Raised using Jane Killion's Puppy Culture Enrichment Program, shown to increase the size of a puppy's brain, increase their resilience to stress, and enhance their emotional stability. Please note that simply giving toys to a puppy does not constitute Puppy Culture and that Puppy Culture is a time-consuming and technical program best performed by breeders with prior training experience. Please question your breeder about their experience as well as the details of their program if they advertise as using Puppy Culture.
