Puppy Training


The first 16 weeks of your puppy's life is the most influential in developing the foundation of his or her years to come. At RiverBend Doodles, we strive to provide you with a well-rounded and socialized puppy right from day one until they go home at 8 weeks of age. 

Our puppies come home to you well versed in family life, already exposed to household noises and rules, children, cats, dogs, toys, training, and much more. We are happy to go above and beyond to make sure our puppies have a smooth transition into their new homes and alleviate many of the hurdles new puppy families usually endure their first few weeks. We want to make sure our puppies new homes are forever homes, and this is our way to ensure the best start for everyone. The first step of our training program is a great foundation for our puppies and their new families. This training is included with every puppy at no additional cost to their family and we are happy to provide new puppy tips and information at pickup time. ​​ 

This basic training program is provided for every puppy from RiverBend Doodles at no additional cost. Training begins at 7  weeks of age before leaving at 8 weeks.
