We are thrilled to announce the start of our very own advanced puppy training program! For the first time, we will be able to offer families the opportunity for additional training after our pups are 8 weeks old. This structured extension of our breeding program will allow puppies time to adjust to life without their littermates and begin basic training skills. We will base our training off our own personal experiences and knowledge as well as the professional training program designed by Baxter & Bella.


Our mission here at CWB is to ensure that every adoption is successful. We measure success in an adoption partly by how the puppy adjusts to his/her new environment. A huge key to that adjustment is a well-prepared and knowledgeable trainer.

Our Transitional Training curriculum will be based off of a highly structured schedule, where we utilize bonding and trust to teach puppy how to communicate with the trainer. We will introduce common commands and phrases to build our training each day off of and add to. 


We hope that with our structured curriculum in the first 8 weeks of puppy's life while here at CWB, from additional time in our transitional training as well as our detailed guide for all our families, ALL OF OUR PUPPIES will go on to live happy, well-adjusted lives. 


We began our Transitional Training Program will in 2023 and have seen just the most incredible progress in our puppy graduates so far! These puppies remain with us after Homecoming Day for an additional 10 days of individualized training. The amount of skills they gain, the confidence they build, and the joy we have with them for this extended stay has been wonderful! Our training program is capable of having 6-8 puppies at a time. Since space is limited, be sure to save puppy's spot when you commit to specific litter. 


During this time, we will be working with your puppy on:

-basic manners and obedience 

-common language/commands such as sit, down, stay, come, ok, kennel

-leash walking

-crate training 

-potty training

-name association and recall

Our goal is to make puppy's transition to your home go as smoothly as possible. You get to avoid the first few loud and messy days of puppy and potty training, while we teach puppy a whole new routine. We will work on setting the foundation for you to build off of once puppy goes home. Please understand that you will still have to support puppy during the transition and keep up our routine, but that's why we are HIGHLY ENCOURAGING ALL FAMILIES who choose our Transitional Training Program (and especially those who don't) to enroll in Baxter & Bella! Using B&B, you will be able to continue moving forward with puppy's training and build off of all that puppy learns in our puppy school. 


Together we can empower your puppy to have confidence, feel loved, and take on new experiences with ease! Be sure to ask if there is availability when you commit to a specific litter for adoption. Our training program is offered on a first come-first serve basis and has limited availability. Families will receive daily updates (pics and/or videos), a training report card at completion, and detailed binder with training schedule, language and additional resources. 

Cost: $1000


Transitional Training Showcase Videos

We have had just the most incredible puppies stay for our intensive training and love watching them excel. Our families are blown away with how much they learn and how easily the transition home. Don't just take our word for it though- here's what some of our families have had to say so far! 

“Merle’s training has been more valuable than we’d hoped. He’s a genius thanks to his work with Halle!! We appreciated the daily skills update and especially the photos she provided. (It’s difficult to leave a new puppy behind and it meant a lot to hear how he was doing and see photos on a daily basis.)

In addition, we loved how closely the Baxter & Bella training was followed; this will be a huge help as we continue with Merle’s training.

We truly appreciate your program and we know Merle does too!!

"We consider ourselves to be so fortunate to have our puppy – Luna – participate in the Baxter and Bella training provided by Central Wisconsin Bernedoodles. We received daily training updates and videos so always able to see her progress and note the words being used in her training. Jessica has been an incredible resource for everything we will need to be new puppy parents."
