If you are interested in additional upfront puppy training by an experienced dog trainer we would be glad to refer you to an excellent certified dog trainer that offers puppy training in her home. This is the gold standard of puppy training! This individual is an amazing trainer and where we send our dogs that we are going to keep as potential breeders. If you select this option, at 8 weeks old your puppy will be placed into her care - she will board and train your puppy in her home located right outside of Tampa Fl. During this additional time, your puppy will learn some basic obedience, continue with house training and crate training, plus be exposed to great socialization exercises both in home and out with adults, cats, other dogs and children. This additional training time is perfect for those families that don’t want to deal with those early puppy stages, those that need additional assistance or families that can’t pick up their puppy on the scheduled day due to other commitments. While this is excellent training, it does NOT mean the puppy will instantly be a perfectly trained dog - it is still a puppy and will require follow through in your home. However, this puppy training will provide a solid foundation of the basics and an excellent start for those that do not feel they have the skills or the time to provide the necessary initial puppy training themselves. There is very limited space in her program as she works one-on-one with each puppy, so if you are interested, make sure to let us know so you can get your reservation in early!
Here is what one of our puppy families said about this trainer . . .
"She did a tremendous job crate training and potty training him in the four weeks she had him. She also taught him to use the bell to let us know he had to go potty. He could also sit and lay down and knew how to “stay” or “wait”. It really helped us greatly! By the time we got Jax from her he was such a perfect puppy! He never chewed anything etc. and never had “accidents “ in the house . I would highly recommend her and we still use her to this day to watch him when we go on vacation! And now she will also be watching sweet Mardi too!!" ~Shelly

We get emails all the time from individuals about puppy biting, chewing, and all those normal stages puppies go through that can be difficult at times. As a result, we have been searching for quite a while to find something that fits with everyone’s busy lifestyles, supports our thoughts about positive reinforcement dog training, is affordable, and is done by professionally trained and certified dog trainers. We were only looking for training online as not everyone can take time off from work to go to a dog training class, or they want their whole family to participate in training their puppy, or individuals are not comfortable being in groups with people they do not know during these scary times. We think BAXTER & Bella is the answer to what we were looking for and is a program we feel comfortable recommending.

In fact, don't just take our word for it, below are a few reviews from current BAXTER & Bella members...
"At first we were most excited about the low price! Nobody could beat it. So, we took a chance. Then the amount of content was unbelievable. So many great recommendations on which products to buy. I dove right in and made sure I followed every video to the best of my ability. She even has charts that I was able to track his behaviors." ~Ryan
"I cannot say enough good about this program! I am a first time dog owner and had no idea where to begin. This program gave me the direction I needed. We have used the program for four months and our puppy is now six months old. I am frequently getting compliments from family, friends, pet care professionals, and strangers about how well behaved our dog is for being a puppy." ~Amy
"I highly recommend this training program! I love the practical tips and the ‘learn at your pace’ format. The combination of written information and videos is really nice. I also had a specific problem with my puppy with the training and contacted Amy. She was quick to respond with a thorough, personalized response. Love it!" ~Angela
"I highly recommend Baxter & Bella to every dog owner! I am a first time dog owner, but the resources are excellent for any dog owner at any age. When we got our Cavapoo puppy we decided to enroll at the local pet store for training classes. The classes were good, but Baxter & Bella has been so much better!! The curriculum is both more in-depth and broad. We also considered hiring a personal dog trainer, but Baxter & Bella is much more affordable, long-term, and based on my schedule. I love the videos because I can watch them over again by myself or with my children. You can’t do that at the pet store. The LIVE! Office hours were amazing! I asked all my individualized questions and received answers and encouragement I needed, including links to her videos. The range of services available is excellent, for times when I want to go in-depth or when I need a quick answer using the Search feature. I feel 100% supported in training my puppy now and for years to come. I do not think I could receive better service anywhere else. Thank you!" ~Melanie
