Do you want a new puppy but dread the “puppy phase?” We can help!
The first 16 weeks of your puppy’s life are the most formative.
Puppies are all fun and games until you’re waking up in the middle of the night to let them out, they’re biting, whining in crate, etc. Our programs are to help those of you who want a puppy but don’t enjoy “the puppy phase!” Let us do all the challenging and boring stuff for you! Raising a puppy is raising a dog. The trainability of these bloodlines is off the chart, as well as the drive to please, but when crucial things are missed in early stages it may cause reactive, insecure dogs later in life.
A puppy’s young, impressionable mind absorbs everything!
I have trained and equipped children and teenagers for almost 3 decades in my profession and I discovered the need for guidance and boundaries to thrive plays out very similarly in the life of a puppy…
They learn, form habits, and make long-lasting associations. But well-meaning new dog owners sometimes create behavioral issues down the road. For example, cute puppy behaviors like jumping up when greeting or chewing a favorite toy may be tolerated or even inadvertently rewarded, which can then easily become problematic when older. The first 16 weeks of your puppy’s life are the most formative. During this time, your dog’s behavior can become a long-term habit. Puppy training ensures your pet is developing appropriate skills.
Sadly, it’s a fact that most adult dogs with significant problems have had some kind of bad experience early in life
Dog training from when they are born until 16 weeks, good or bad, will last a lifetime, so it’s vital that you get it right.
This ultimately means focusing on three key areas of training:
Basic obedience training helps your pet learn its role, both in your family and in the world around them.
Done right, it will teach it the skills it needs to interact with other dogs and people inside and outside your home. Recognizing their name, to come, to sit and down, as well as how to walk on or off-leash properly, are all vital.
Socialization is the process of teaching a puppy that its world is safe and that dogs and people come in all shapes and sizes. Socialization will also help your puppy react properly in various situations, such as being gentle with children, riding in vehicles calmly, and behaving appropriately with visitors.
Good manners mean your dog will learn to not jump up on people, to stay in a crate or kennel, to eliminate only outside, to “leave it”, and to not bark excessively. Other behavior problems like nipping may also need to be addressed.
