We occasionally select an ideal puppy candidate for our advanced & trained puppy program to continue lovingly raise, train, and pre-spoil before introducing them at a further progressed age as advanced, fully house-trained puppies, ready for new adventures with their first family.
Below we touch on the training, time, dedication and love invested in providing such an ideal advanced & trained puppy. See about our puppies page to learn more about this unique option, the training involved, and our beliefs, practices and methods.
A bit about Dorito (sorry he is no longer available)- See his full description and details further down the page.
Dorito is a one-of-a-kind cutie who's as snuggly as he is entertaining, always making time for a cuddle between play sessions. He enjoys swimming, fetching and playing with others but is also very self-entertaining and enjoys a variety of toys, balls, and fun games to entertain himself and his adoring fans. Dorito's delightfully charming, highly intelligent, eager-to-please, and well-behaved puppy with a fun-loving, playful personality. He's always happy to come running when called. We've so enjoyed raising, training and watching his progress and development into an outstanding puppy with an exceptionally calm, gentle, patient and balanced temperament and the cheery, happy-go-lucky disposition that our puppies are known for. He's also house-trained, crate trained, doggy-door trained, trained to go outside to do his "business," and litter box trained for added versatility to accommodate condos, boating, vacationing, travel and more. He sleeps peacefully through the entire night, typically in his crate in our bedroom, used for bedtime and when we need to step out. Dorito is age-appropriately trained, knows basic commands, enjoys travelling and is trained not to chew unapproved objects like cords, shoes, and furniture. He has also learned non-destructive play with his toys, even his beloved stuffed toys and more!

He's a very sweet and kind-hearted boy that gets along with everyone and is adored by everyone he meets with his irresistible charm and delightful comedic ways.

His versatility and disposition would be ideal for all living situations and would make the ultimate companion for a couple, solo person or family addition.

He's accustomed to being a vibrant and adored part of our family, so he will easily and quickly bond with his new family.
