Avidog Puppy College
While we make every effort to raise smart, confident, 'bomb-proof' puppies, the work only begins with us and needs to be carried on by the puppy's owners. It is imperative for puppies to receive intentional and consistent training and socialization in the first year of their lives.
We recommend the Avidog Puppy College Program and hope that each of our puppy buyers will purchase this program.
Avidog Puppy College includes 5 parts:
1. Online self-paced classes (house training, crate training, socialization, important life skills, preventing problems, safe exercise and fitness, healthy diet and nutrition)
2. Weekly live coaching calls where you can get your questions answered by dog training experts
3. Weekly email office hours where you can receive written guidance for your pup's challenges
4. Private Facebook Group
5. A growing resource library with quick info on specific problems
