    Awful lot to ask for in 3 or 4 weeks, and the pup will not be perfect in all situations. Pups will be pups! My guess on cost would be as much as sending them for formal training $600-$700.

    Have a male that would not load, no way no how. After some reinforcement and you will load, you had better have the kennel open because he is loading, door open or not! I also use a ramp to unload.
