Puppy Prodigy


Looking to add a puppy to your family but not sure where to start? Don’t have the patience for potty training? Not sure how to set your puppy up for long term success? Let us help you by selecting and raising your dream puppy!

Our Puppy Prodigies undergo an extensive board and train program that includes 16 weeks of training. Puppies start training with us at 10 weeks old and transition to their forever homes around 6 months of age.

Our Puppy Prodigy Program utilizes a unique approach that allows people to experience the joy of a young puppy, but skip over the challenging aspects of puppy training. We provide this program to help families set their puppy up for success and create happy, obedient dogs from day one. We understand that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention. This program ensures your puppy is well socialized and comes home with an amazing start to their life.

We currently do not have any Puppy Prodigies available, but we'd be happy to acquire and raise the perfect Puppy Prodigy for your family! For more info, please reach out to [email protected].

How It Works 

Your puppy will be ready to join your family after they complete 16 weeks of training! During this time they will live in home with one  or more of our KeenDog trainers and will be raised as a member of their pack. Training will include house breaking, crate training, socialization in a wide variety of environments and with different dogs and people, on and off leash, advanced obedience, and more!

If local to the Greater Charlotte area, we welcome families to participate in training with us throughout the 16 week program. This will jump start your learning and help develop a bond with your puppy. If not local to the Charlotte area, we still welcome you to come visit, but will also travel to wherever you live and stay for 3-4 days to transfer the training over smoothly (detailed below). 

We recognize that most people aren’t dog trainers, so what comes natural to us isn’t so natural to most. The most important thing when receiving a trained dog is to know how to continue training them yourself! By the time your puppy goes home it will have a very solid foundation, but follow through and continued practice are essential to long term success. That is why we take multiple days to hand off puppies at the conclusion of training, typically fitting in 9 go-home lessons. We do multiple sessions in home and wherever you go around town such as restaurants, coffee shops, parks, athletic events, etc. We want all family members to be comfortable with how to communicate properly to your dog in whatever environment you are in!



Our puppy prodigies are each available for $15,000. This includes the cost of the puppy, 16 weeks of training, and training tools (detailed below).

Clients from all over the country (and even Canada!) have participated in our Puppy Prodigy Program. Once the puppy is ready to go home, one or more KeenDog trainers will travel with the puppy to their forever home. This trip will include three days of intensive training to ensure the information has transferred to the new owners. Travel costs are NOT included in the price of the puppy and vary by location.


NOTE: It is expected that puppy prodigies will experience an adjustment period when adjusting to their forever home. Long-term success with training will depend on the owner’s dedication to continuation of training. Training never really ends! They will need practice and reinforcement until at least 1 to 2 years of age.
