At Castlerock we have much experience with integrating a puppy into home life and developing the essential skills he/she will need to be a loving part of the family. We are amazed by the accelerated rate our puppies learn fundamental concepts using our methods and are happy to provide our puppy families the advantages of starting out with introduction of basic obedience in your companion puppy. Our puppies love to please, and it is a joy to see their eyes searching yours, asking what they can do for you. These puppies know to look to us for guidance, making eye contact and waiting for direction. This amazing amount of intelligence needs guidance Castlerock provides our Puppies and their new families the right direction to follow in order to strengthen their bond with their new puppy. These concepts and skills need to be continued after the puppies go home to their new families to help the puppy be the best companion he/she can be.
Every family is different and will have different goals for their new puppy. We will work with each family to better understand their individual needs and tailor our program to make sure each puppy has the best start in their new homes.
