ready for your family
We offer a limited number of trained dogs each year to families looking for a well trained pet or someone seeking a service dog with a great foundation, ready to start specialized training. This is a fabulous way to get an exceptional dog for you or your family! Our puppies that go through our training program live here and work with our full time trainer. They are housebroken, crate trained, and extensively socialized to a variety of places, people, and experiences. We believe the best dog is one who is truly a joy to live with. Having remarkable manners not only at home, but anywhere you want to take them in public.
Our dogs will:
- Learn to greet visitors politely at the door (no rude jumping or overwhelming your guests).
- They learn "place" where they go and sit or lie on their bed or mat until told it is ok to get up.
- No begging is allowed. They also learn to "leave it" (a command for their safety which can be given to tell them to avoid picking up an unknown food or item off the sidewalk during a walk, not to scarf up a piece of your food that fell on the ground, or in other situations you don't want them grabbing/eating something).
- They learn "wait" which we use getting into or out of a car so you don't have a dog who darts out of the car when you open the door. This is for their own safety, as well as making it more enjoyable to take them places.
- Travel well in a car.
- Walking nicely on a leash. It is never a pleasure to walk a dog who wants to walk you!
- Our dogs are exposed to a variety of experiences such as swimming (weather permitting) city environments, country settings, a variety of animals including cats, store field trips, etc.
Our dogs practice these commands in various settings so you can rely on them listening to you wherever you are.
When you choose a LML trained dog, you are getting:
- A Lewis Manor Australian Labradoodle bred for health and temperament, giving you an enjoyable companion who has a long healthy life to share with you.
- A 2 year health guarantee.
- All of the training, manners, and socialization listed above. (Realizing these are animals, and not machines. As such, each one is unique with their own personality, strengths, and weaknesses. They will not always be perfect, but rather, our goal is to make each one a joy to have and easy to "do life" with.)
- Bi-weekly updates throughout your dog's training including progress reports and pictures!
- A puppy bag including favorite toys your dog has played with and enjoyed while here, and other basic supplies.
- A one on one training session where you will work with one of our trainers to learn everything your dog knows, and have the opportunity to ask any training related questions.
- A customized training plan specific to your dog.
