What A Trained Puppy Means For You

Master's Degree
This program includes AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Preschool. Following Preschool, your puppy will begin an intense 4-week Master’s Distractions training program with Sit Means Sit Dog Training professional trainers. 
Your puppy will be training inside and outside our training facility. This will help advance your puppy’s attention with distractions. After training, an in-person lesson is required at the time of pick-up with one of Sit Means Sit's professional trainers. For the average golden retriever, the puppy realizes they are being trained between 10-12 weeks old, making an enormous difference in their training. This reinforces all the commands throughout the puppy's life, even around distractions.
