At Snowy Pines Puppy University, we provide an experience each day that will prepare your puppy for his or her new home. We strive to create more than just a training program that teaches yes or no and sit and stay. These behaviors can be taught by any trainer. Are these skills important? Absolutely they are, but we are more than just behavior — we are about a lifestyle!

Wagology (the art of tail wagging ) does just this. We create a well-behaved puppy that is comfortable in their new lifestyle and that will seamlessly integrate into your family and in your routine. They are already familiar with family TV time, time at the dinner table, riding in the car, and other household activities that make up our everyday life. Remember this is more than just training… it’s a lifestyle!!  See our video above for more on our lifestyle module trainings.

Lifestyle training starts at a very young age. Immediately after birth, each puppy is handled daily and is stimulated by a series of gentle movements. This consistent human interaction builds up stress responses and will equip your puppy for future changes in their environment.

At Snowy Pines,   children are huge helpers and are in charge of loving, caring, and playing with each litter to prepare the puppies to be a part of your family. We are truly a one-of-a-kind training facility that is committed to developing both the emotional and behavioral skills needed for your new puppy to quickly adapt to a new lifestyle. We focus on the soft skills of social interactions such as how to behave with children, how to deal with loud noises, how to behave when new people approach, and how to remain calm sitting in an office or walking in the park.

Life requires more than yes or no and sit and stay. It’s life, and life is ever-changing. Will we teach your puppy the basic commands and house train your puppy? Of course, but here at Snowy Pines Puppy University, we go even farther. We want your new puppy to instantly become a part of your family.  We like to say “the first time your puppy goes home is not the first time they have been home”.  This is why our program is one of the best training programs in the US!

Puppy manners are essential, and Wagology 101 is a great start to the Snowy Pines way of life. This class begins when the puppy reaches 7 weeks of age and encompasses almost 100 hours of training and lifestyle socialization.

Successful graduates of this program will understand beginning command words in both verbal and physical cues. More importantly they will be accustomed to kitchen time, family time, and dinner time. Wagology 101 develops a baseline to get your puppy where the average family can continue the training process once the puppy is home in their new environment.   We will provide the curriculum and support to help further the training but expect to spend approximately 30 minutes per day in reinforcement. Some families have the time needed to further the process to develop these needed skills. If this is you, this level of Puppy U is the perfect option for you.

Wagology Honors Program

$12,500

Advanced Wagology is a much more advanced training program encompassing over 200 hours of training.

In this advanced course encompassing nearly 250 hours of training your Snowy Pine’s puppy will not only master the basics in Wagology 101, but they will receive an additional 4 weeks of concentrated interactions with life happening moments. Each puppy has a moment where the training just clicks, and all are different. Once we have that moment, we see tremendous changes not only in their training but their personality as well. On average we see this at the 10-12-week-old mark. The additional 3 to 4 weeks of training in Puppy U is vital for puppies to retain all the commands and life skills they have learned and need.  Puppies graduating this program will also be AKC STAR Puppy certified.  This is a the foundation to AKC Good Citizen Certification, which is accomplished in our Doctorate Program.

WHY CHOOSE WAGOLOGY

Welcome to SPWL, home of the best well-trained English Labrador puppies in the world. We are honored that you have started this journey with us and we want to welcome you to our family.

Today, we want to walk you through the details of our Training programs and give you a tour of our facility. It is important that you understand the aspects of our rigorous training program. Our program stands out from other training programs in that while we perform basic obedience and house training, we dive deeper into what makes a puppy part of a home.

We have lifestyle modules in our program that make our training exponentially better while also setting us apart from every other trainer and breeder in the world. Here at Snowy Pines, we like to say “The First time a puppy goes home is not the first time they have been home”.  Allow me to explain… In our state of the art training facility we have built a mock home… a bedroom, kitchen, dining, living area, and indoor astro turf park. Our puppies are not just trained in a tile room with a trainer, but rather they are trained in a home environment, acclimating them to family life before they join their forever families. Our puppies go through daily modules learning their commands such as sit, stay, come, and house training; in the kitchen, then in the dining, bedroom and so on. This helps our puppies acclimate to being part of the family and not just learning mechanical commands. We are also one of the few breeders in the country that certifies our puppies as AKC STAR Puppies and Canine Good Citizens, depending on the level of training. We are training a puppy to be part of the family!

We take training seriously and want you to know that our trainers are certified across multiple areas and organizations of training. We know you will love our world class trainers and value your trust!! For those families that want to get your puppy home as quickly as possible we offer the Snowy Pines Virtual University where we can do training 1on1 with you and your family. Just jump over to our Virtual training page to learn more about that program. We also allow a limited number of dogs from outside of the Snowy Pines lines into our Virtual training program. Just inquire if you would like to learn more about those opportunities.

We are excited to be working with you and look forward to training your family and your puppy.   We are so proud of what we do here at Snowy Pines and we want you to remember that “When your puppy finally comes home it is not the first time they have been home”.    Welcome to the family!!
