Specialty Dog Training has trained family dogs for sale. We take all the guess-work out of adopting a new pup by hand selecting the best dog for you based on your family’s lifestyle, needs, and preferences.

A pre-trained dog is a great choice, whether you are looking to responsibly bring a rescue dog into your home who is compatible with your children and other pets, you are a first time dog owner, you aren’t sure what dog might be a good fit for your lifestyle, or you just want to bring a dog into your family but don’t have the time to select, socialize, potty train, and obedience train them. SDT also places specially trained personal companion dogs that are not only highly obedient, but are also trained in security tasks, such as an “alarm bark”. These family dogs are social, loving, and obedient, but they are also responsive to a command to bark on cue at a door, in a car or on leash for response to personal safety concerns.

First, we conduct a thorough consultation to determine what breed/breed mix, size, age, and temperament will best fit your family, and get a picture of what activities you will be doing with your new furry family member. Then, we go to work sourcing your dog! Through our many rescue partners, and partnerships with responsible local breeders, we have a vast array of resources at our fingertips to find the right dog for you. We then evaluate each potential dog on their individual temperament, drive level, family compatibility, and overall stability before determining they will be a good match for you.

Once we have sourced your dog, we will outline a customized training program for them based on your specific training goals and lifestyle needs. You will receive personalized updates throughout the sourcing and training process to begin learning more about your new dog! Each trained family dog is potty trained, socialized with other dogs and people, and highly trained in leadership, housemanners, car manners, leash manners, and advanced obedience (AKC Canine Good Citizen ready). Your dog will walk nicely with a loose leash, come when called, practice good manners when greeting people, front door manners for deliveries and guests coming in, control around distractions and overall will be a well behaved companion. This training process generally takes between 12 and 16 weeks and will include on-site bonding sessions, as well as handling instruction for you.

When your new trained family dog is ready to go home, Specialty Dog training will provide transfer training lessons to set you up for success and make sure the transition to your dog’s new home is a smooth one. Once your dog graduates from our program, you will qualify for discounts that include participation in our additional training resources like refresher training while boarding, advanced obedience group classes for maintenance, therapy dog preparation courses and more! Specialty Dog Training offers training support for the life of your trained dog!

Our trained dogs for sale, including hand selected dogs with custom tailored programs, start at just $8,500 (client is responsible for the purchase price of the dog if a fee is charged by rescue/shelter/owner/breeder). Contact us today for more information on adding a trained dog to your family!
