For those who want a dog that is at a higher level of training and/or do not want to go through the puppy stage, we offer both in-progress and fully-trained dogs. Trained to various levels, depending on your lifestyle, preference, and budget… a started dog may be an ideal option for you and your family. Puppies are fun, but there is always a risk that you won’t get what you want. A started dog allows you test drive before you buy and the price is about the same as if you had the puppy trained yourself. Buying a started dog can actually be a very cost-effective option and worth exploring.
