– Enhanced Training Program: Training from birth based on early concept training which teaches puppies to think & understand, shape their temperament and helps us develop a blue print for each individual puppy, so when pups join their families we send them with a report card which will help to train the individual puppy, not a blank slate and one-size fits all approach. In their time spent with us, we teach the pups to be calm and balanced and create positive brain connections. Our puppies join their new families as well adjusted, calm, balanced pets to enjoy as family companions as well as be ready to continue their training for specific jobs in service or therapy work.
We offer 3 options when purchasing your puppy … PLEASE VISIT OUR ENHANCED TRAINING PAGE FOR MORE INFO: https://gsrbelmore.com/new-enhanced-training-program/
Option 1: Our 8 week Enhanced Learning program is $2500 + HST. These are our pet puppies who remain with us until they are 8 weeks old. We require a deposit to reserve a puppy, which is non-refundable unless WE cannot provide a puppy for you within one year of the puppy’s expected arrival. Our puppies are born and raised in our home, and their health and development is a priority the entire time they’re with us. We spend much of our time with our puppies, and they are raised with developmental strategies from the time they are newborn, receiving early stimulation and socialization to establish positive brain connections. By the time puppies join their new families, they will have been exposed routinely to water activities, scent intro, sight and sound socialization, massage and puppy yoga and an introduction to crate, potty and behaviour training. Our puppies also receive personality and aptitude assessments, which guide us in working with them and serves as a blue print for families when choosing and carrying on with teaching their pups at home. The puppies are sent home with their individual report card to facilitate the transition to their new homes and training. We also register our pups for 6 weeks of complimentary pet insurance. Our puppies are sold with CKC non-breeding contracts.
In addition to the above, we offer an additional 1 week of daily routine -crate and outdoor potty intro, and these pups join their new families at 9 weeks of age, with the initial basic training transition intro completed. Our charge for this additional week is $625.00 + HST.
PICK OF THE LITTER PUPPY PRICE IS $5000 + HST. This option is for pups who will go on to further their training as service dogs, in which certain character and aptitude attributes are required, or for families who wish to have their choice of the entire litter to choose from. Families and their trainers have access to each of the puppy’s records with our personality/aptitude assessment results, notes regarding our own observations and can do their own assessments here if desired. Included in the price of this option is our additional week of daily routine, outdoor potty, crate intro.
*CURRENTLY WE ARE NOT OFFERING OPTIONS 2 AND 3 UNTIL WAIT LISTS ARE CAUGHT UP* Option 2: Our 12 Week Enhanced Learning Program is $5000 + HST. It starts with the 8 week program above and builds on what we’ve started such as extended crate training and extended outdoor potty training, smell associations, imitation early concept training, basic obedience and focus training. This program is designed to give pet puppies the strong foundation they require, with healthy brain connections imprinted so they’re ready for their new families to continue training with them. The 12 week program is excellent for busy families since the initial work of crate and outdoor potty training is well under way by the time pup joins their family.
*CURRENTLY WE ARE NOT OFFERING OPTIONS 2 OR 3 UNTIL WAIT LISTS ARE CAUGHT UP* Option 3: Our 15 Week Enhanced Learning Program is $6500 + HST. It includes everything in options 1&2 and adds more specialized, intermediate training suitable for puppies 12 weeks and older. Pups who are purchased as pets or potential service dogs fall into this category. With the 15 week program, families are given pick of the litter selection, either under the advisement of our own screening and assessments or with the help of the family’s trainer. If a pet pup family wishes to secure pick of the litter status, or a family is purchasing a pup with intentions of continuing professional service dog training, this is the recommended program. Sometimes the pups are ready to join their families & begin specialized service training prior to the age of 15 weeks, but the price is the same regardless, due to the family’s priority selection of pick of the litter.
