DoodletownUSA is now offering Puppy Kindergarten!


Training will begin the day after 'Go Home Day' for your puppy and will be conducted in home by our trainer - Sydney.  We will focus on basic obedience and modifying any annoying or “bad” behaviors that your puppy displays.  Your puppy will be trained alongside other puppies in training and this kind of immersion in pack culture will allow your dog to gain confidence, learn obedience and become a more enjoyable companion.

Our program is completely customized to the needs of each dog that we train.  Your puppy will be placed in situations that challenge them in order to help them grow into the best pet possible.  Training spaces are limited due to the nature of the training and the one-on-one time that each dog will require. 


During your puppy’s stay, training will include:

Basic Commands (Sit, Come, Stay, Down,etc.)

Socialization (In Home and Public)

Beginner Potty Training

Beginner Leash Training

Beginner Crate Conditioning/Training

Pack Structure Training

Feeding Structure(Alone/Group)

Bathing and Grooming Conditioning

Beginner Settling Conditioning/Training

Beginner Car Rider Training/Conditioning

Opportunities to have FUN!


We will provide you with updates that will include pictures and videos of your puppy.  At the end of your puppy’s stay we also require a 1 hour visit with you and your family members to go over everything your puppy has learned while staying with us.  All skills taught in the training are diminishable and need to be reinforced by the owner continuously after their return home.

Pricing for Puppy Kindergarten: 

$40 /Day for Training  The price includes training fee, food, and supplies needed for your puppy during their stay.

Puppy Kindergarten typically is done in 4 or 6 week increments but there can be accommodations made that work best for your family's timing.

Putting our dog, Tilly, in Doodletown USA’s Puppy Kindergarten with Sydney is the single best decision we have made as dog owners.  Sydney is an incredibly thoughtful and caring trainer and gave Tilly the rock solid training foundation we needed as a couple getting our first dog together.  Sydney was able to uncover elements of Tilly’s personality we could watch out for as well as her motivations to help us understand our dog from the first moment we brought her home.  The frequent updates, “parent training” and continued support we received throughout the process have eased any concerns and have helped me realize how lucky I am to be part of the DoodletownUSA community. I have already recommended DoodletownUSA to several friends looking for Bernedoodles or Goldendoodles and have assured them that Sydney’s 'Puppy Kindergarten' is well-worth the cost in peace of mind and undamaged furniture!
