Puppy "Kindergarten" Training $500 per week

Puppies in training live in our home and become part of our family during their stay.
We want you to be part of their experience here as well.
We provide weekly updates with photos or videos.
We also welcome communication with us throughout their time in training.


I want to offer puppy training to select puppies wanting a more structured style training.
Each day the puppy will have 3-4 private training sessions, supervised socialization with other dogs for playtime and crate training. More advanced puppies can be taken out for public interactions. Customized exposures to livestock, water or other request can be arranged.
What your puppy will learn will vary based on how long they stay with us & sometimes the breed of
dog. Our goals for each puppy are the following:
  • Crate & Potty Training
  • Name Recognition & socialization
  • Leash Etiquette- No pulling, staying close & with time heeling nicely!
  • Basic Commands- Sit, Down, Come, Wait, Stay, Off, Yes(reward), No(stop behavior)
  • More Advanced Commands- Leave it, Place, & off leash recall
4 weeks- Beginning crate/potty training, name recognition, sit, off, yes/no, leave it, leash etiquette, down & public interactions
8 weeks- Wait, stay, come, loose leash heeling, daycare interactions & place

Some puppies learn faster than others or take to one command quicker than others.  If a puppy is progressing quickly I will add in other commands however, I don't like to overwhelm them. With our training method each day is critical, the longer they're here the more they will learn. While your puppy is in our care we will schedule routine vaccinations and care with our veterinarian. We also have regular grooming appointments which is critical to ensure a calm positive experience.

Puppies are not robots and practice makes perfect! When I train your puppy I must also have a family commitment to continue practice at home. Together we can better ensure your puppy will have a successful outcome.

Kindergarten will get your puppy a head start in training and make transitioning to your home much easier. When the time comes for your puppy to go home we will provide you a shopping list of recommended supplies. I do suggest that you find a trainer in your area to continue your puppies training. I'm happy to research and help assist you in finding that trainer.

**Now offering "Day with the Trainer" I will personally accompany your puppy on the flight to your home. This is a valuable option for transitioning your puppy from training to your home as well as educate you. We will go over all aspects of the training process including feeding, crating, daily activities and neighborhood walks. You will be responsible for my round trip ticket, pet flight fees, lodging, travel and trainer fee.

Turnkey Training Program

What is a Turn Key?

A turn key is a puppy that goes home to you fully trained in obedience, house trained, and much more. If you are leading a busy life and the thought of a chewing, peeing, pooping, whining, jumping puppy is just to daunting, yet you can't live without the companionship a dog offers, a turnkey puppy is for you!

If your family does not have the time to dedicate to training a puppy during his/her first six months, a turnkey puppy is a great option. This time in a puppy's life is critical to instilling  them through adulthood. Your investment covers the following:

  • Your puppy will be fully house-trained and crate-trained.
  • Your puppy will be socialized in different situations and places.
  • Your puppy will be obedience-trained.
  • Name Recognition, Sit, Down, Come, Wait (exiting or entering), Stay, Heel on leash/leash etiquette, Sit when stop, Yes (reward), No (stop behavior), Crate & Potty, Leave it, Place & Off.

A finished puppy delivered right to your door. Including a private in-home training session with detailed instructions on managing your puppy. You will receive a lifetime of support from trainer and breeder.

Your pet has either AKC breed registration papers, AKC PAL registration number or AKC Partners registration number. This allows you and your family to compete with your pet at any AKC sanctioned performance event. They are seasoned travelers and will ride quietly in your vehicle. If you cannot take your dog on your trip, he has experience at the kennel and will hang out there waiting for your return. Turnkey Dogs are well socialized with other dogs and at daycare. They have experience with children, cats, and upon request can be exposed to other animals. Your Turnkey Dog has wonderful manners and will be welcomed by your groomer and veterinarian. This is your opportunity to finally own the pet your kids have dreamed of and begged for, the pet you have pondered, yet felt was too much work. Turnkey Dogs takes the work and worry out of the equation by skillfully preparing your puppy to be the pet your kids will love and your neighbors will envy.

I'm partnered with several breeder's offering different breeds to best suit your home and needs. I'm also happy to work with other breeds if you have a specific one in mind.

Prices vary from each breeder from $15,000 - $18,000

Partnered Breeder

“I cannot begin to explain how highly I think of this company! Jessica was willing to help me with my German Shepherd Puppy with training as he was making no progress with the previous training techniques that we were given. In just one session he has shown such an amazing improvement and he came home from his day session at Peace of mind happy and tired. I feel so comfortable leaving him here while we go on vacation and I can’t wait to see how far he comes with his training as she has a vast amount of knowledge to share. Thank you both for your wonderful care of my pup!”

“We could not be more happy with Peace of Mind - Pet Services. We know when we leave our pets in there care they are safe and being loved just like we do at home. I have had the pleasure to get to know Jessica through the vet clinic I work for and have always been impressed with how well behaved her dogs are. My husband and I knew that Jessica would be who we would use to train all our puppies that we added to our small breeding business.Jessica started working with our 18 week old corgi Clara and in the first two day she had all ready taught her how to heel and to sit when you stop walking. After the first week with Jessica she knew the sit, down, stay, and wait commands which has transitioned over to feeding time and coming in/out of the house. As well as what leave it means (one of our favorite commands at home) and out!!!! After just such a short time Clara is starting to place.The most impressive part of Clara's training is that everyone at our home can use all these commands Jessica has taught her and can get results. Myself and my 17 year old son can work Clara and get the same results as Jessica and this has been after only 2 weeks of training. We are very excited to work with Peace of Mind with future litters of puppy's being able to offer new owners puppy kindergarten and turnkey puppy's!”

“Jessica gave us amazing "Poynters" about our new puppy. Would highly recommend sending your puppy to get trained with her. Our little Guinness was with her 3 weeks. He listens to commands, walks on leash, sits and is almost completely potty trained!! Well worth it!”
