Puppy Training

Puppies are sponges and are soaking up everything they see and learn throughout the day, both good and bad. It’s your responsibility as their owner to help them live their best possible life and set them up for success! Luckily, AvidDog is here to help. Our trainers are experienced in raising puppies from a young age to grow into confident, well-mannered adult dogs and we want to do the same for you! Here’s how we can help.


StarPuppy Board and Train

Our StarPuppy Board and Train will help set a strong foundation for your new puppy. We will also guide you as the owner in the right direction to assist in your puppy’s development as she grows up!

Our StarPuppy Board and Train emphasizes the following:

  • Confidence building
  • Exposure to new environments
  • Socialization with people and dogs
  • Focus on owner
  • Foundations of obedience commands
  • Luring
  • Potty training basics
  • Crate training

More About the Program

Our StarPuppy Program is designed to not only teach puppies the basics of training, but also to ensure owners are doing everything in their power to establish good behavior in their new furry friend! Let us guide you and your puppy through those tough first months of puppy ownership!

The StarPuppy Board and Train is a 2 week board and train with one of our professional trainers. At the completion of this program, your trainer will teach you everything your puppy has learned and how to maintain their progress. You are also offered two free follow up lessons!

This program is only for puppies under 6 months of age.


CompleteDog Program

If you just got a new puppy and want them to be the best dog they can be from now until they grow old, invest in our CompleteDog Program and you will not be disappointed!

Our CompleteDog Program combines both our StarPuppy Program and our AdvancedDog Program to give you the complete AvidDog experience from puppyhood to adulthood!

We make sure that your puppy is on the right path from the moment you pick them up! Your new puppy will go through 2 extensive board and train experiences with us and will have the opportunity to continue to grow and expand their skills for the rest of their life with our Lifetime Support promise!

How the CompleteDog Program Works

Your puppy will come to us sometime before 4 months of age to complete the first portion of the CompleteDog Program. Once your dog reaches 6 months of age, she will return to us again for the second portion! In between these two training experiences, you and your puppy will be granted unlimited Private Lessons in the home and out in public to ensure your puppy stays on the right path!

Upon completion of this extensive Board and Train Program, your puppy will be happy, confident, and off-leash reliable!

The team at AvidDog has been fantastic working with me and my new puppy! I’m so glad I started early with them and have used both the in-home training and just finished a board and train. The team is knowledgeable and professional – and fun. Strong recommendation for anyone wanting to have a well trained dog and take advantage of Wilmington’s dog friendly environment. It is a lot of work for the dog and the owner, and Avid really helps both of us focus for success.
