Puppy finding and training service.
We find and train a puppy to meet your requirements.
In a world where there are many hazards and pitfalls finding a happy healthy puppy from a reputable breeder can be difficult. Here at puppy steps we are able to help and take the stress away from you to make owning a puppy the happy experience it should be.
Once you have made the decision to own a puppy we can offer advise and guidance on which breed would be best for you. We can guide you through every step of the way. With this exclusive service we only have a few puppies at each Puppy Steps branch. This allows us to give maximum time and attention to each puppy and ensures we achieve the standards we strive for.
After telling us of the criteria for your puppy, breed, sex, colour etc we get to work finding the perfect dog for you. Using the list of requirements we will look for and view litters which are a potential match. Using our knowledge and experience we will view the litters to ensure that they are happy, healthy and confident with no obvious health issues. It is essential that puppies are raised in the correct environment with their siblings and mother present until a minimum 8 weeks of age.
As we find and view litters we will keep you informed along the way. If we are happy with the puppies and would be happy owning the pup ourselves then we will send you some pictures and videos where possible so that you have the final say, after all this is your puppy. If you are happy then we will purchase the puppy and begin training once they are ready to leave their mother.
Training starts when we collect the new puppy. They come to live with us for the next 4 weeks, living in the house as part of our extended family. We DO NOT kennel any of our dogs. They are all in the home. We are in a unique position of being able to offer this service. Not only the in house training but also the early socialisation lessons with children. Being part of the family we have our 2 children, age 1 and 4, which they are constantly around. We also have 3 older dogs of our own which help the puppies with key skills in behaviour and socialisation. The lessons they learn at this early stage will last them a lifetime.
At the end of the 4 weeks training you will have a happy, well balance puppy who has a good level of basic obedience. Sit, Down, Wait and recall are the basic commands. The puppies are all house trained and crate trained so can be left alone for short periods where necessary. They are fully vaccinated, wormed up to date and are lead trained so once they are home and settled with their new family they can be taken for walks.
When you come to collect your new family member we will spend time taking the dog for a walk, showing you the results and teaching you how to continue the training once you are home.
Our aim is to make owning a new puppy as enjoyable and stress free as possible for everyone.
