Snowy Pines Puppy University is one of the top training programs in the world. We not only train our puppies in basic obedience but incorporate a lifestyle component that actually prepares our puppies to be a part of the family. There is nothing mechanical in a family relationship and that is why we approach training holistically to include emotions, family dynamics, intellect, and obedience. While a good amount of our families choose to leave their puppies here with us for 4 to 12 weeks to complete the program on site, we know there are families that need to bring their puppies home sooner. That is why we developed the Snowy Pines University In-Home Training Academy. This includes the proprietary Snowy Pines University Training guides and video series.  We take the challenge of training a new puppy and work to make that a family/puppy bonding experience that is joyful for all involved.  We have spent over a decade perfecting this program and know your family will grow along side your puppy! We also offer a virtual option to assist you with real time coaching from our trainers.  This is not just a library of pre recorded videos but actual 1on1 training done virtually from our best-in-class certified trainers. We spend time walking you through the exact activities needed to reinforce training using our approach to your specific family needs. This combined with our personally developed curriculum paves the way for world class training in the comfort of your own home.
