Our essential tools might seem basic to you now, but you will come to see these ordinary tools as EXTRAordinary in the coming weeks!
During a “sprint” you will pick 1 of 5 activities to do in our “plug and play” model. You will learn how to “sneak” training into your focus time with your puppy. For example you might as well train through play, instead of just playing with your puppy right? That way you are getting your puppy both tired and responsive to you. While doing your “sprints” with your puppy you will be working on different handling skills.
After you do a training sprint with your puppy instead of giving your puppy “free time” after that you will instead give it “focused time.” You will now transition a more relaxed and responsive puppy from its training sprint directly to its raised dog bed where you will choose 1 of 5 different bones depending on what “level bone” makes the most sense for that situation.
You will use the same handling skills that worked to have your puppy focus on you during sprints to now help you keep your puppy on the raised dog bed chewing its bone.
Longer, more intense training sprints followed by longer focused periods of passivity will result in your puppy getting deeper, longer rest. Then you will wake your puppy and it will pee as soon as it goes outside, just like it does for you first thing in the morning.

Wobbler/Tumbler: (this is NOT the rubber one you put peanut butter in)
Your puppy spends all day looking for something to get into. Then you plop its meal down. It quickly eats it then it goes right back into “what can I get into mode,” right? WRONG!
These food puzzles:
“Tie up” your puppy for 10-15 minutes per meal
Burn some energy creating deeper sleeping patterns
Get your puppy into the “food drive zone”
If it can focus on the food then ignore distractions.
Ensures your puppy has enough motivation to be a good student for you.
Other food puzzles are great at first, but once your puppy figures them out it can quickly move through the puzzle in no time flat. Even after your puppy has a systematic way of getting food to dispense from these it still takes 10-15 minutes. That is why we don’t sell other puzzles.
If I told you there was something that cost $15-$20 that would keep your puppy busy for 20-30 minutes a day would you think that would be worth it? Yes, we thought so too!

36lb+: large wobbler
Variety of Bones at Bulk Pricing
If you culminate a relationship with a variety of bones as part of your daily routine you will then have more options to entice your puppy to naturally make the right decision as to what it should do versus attempting to control your puppy through bribery or commands when it matters most.
It is not enough to give your puppy what it likes. Your goal should be to get your puppy to chew on bones on the red side of the Champion Chew Meter. This is important because it then allows you to break out the “green bones” when the stakes are higher. Having more options at your disposal to get better behavior from your puppy naturally is one of the many ways we are going to have you working smarter, not harder!
Chewing is a big part of what makes your puppy a dog. Still, there is a risk factor. The bully buddy greatly reduces the risk of a bone getting lodged in the roof of your puppy’s mouth, getting caught in it’s throat, getting caught in it’s GI tract or having your puppy become “resource guardian” because you are always trying to pull bones out of its mouth right before its about to swallow it.
When it comes to training sometimes you just need to know what to do. Then there are times when you just need to put in the work. Other times the right tools make all the difference in the world. The raised cot helps make clear to your puppy where it should be and where it is not allowed to be. A raised cot gives your puppy’s stay a 70% boost over a pillow-like dog bed. Clear boundaries are important when it comes to training. “GI Joe crawling” is a real thing when it comes to rolling out a successful “Place” command. The raised dog cot helps you keep your focused on chewing,
