Medical Safety In Pupppy Training

The American Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Medical Society of Animal Behavior, and several other nation organizations advise dog owners to begin training as soon as their puppy comes home.

Studies have shown that a what puppies experiences in the first three months of life strongly influences what kind of companion they will grow to be and how they will react to the world. How they react to children, hats, strangers, other dogs, loud noises, and even the vacuum will be learned during this time.

Failure to properly expose young puppies to certain situations or types of people during this brief early period ( 4 to 14 weeks ) can result in the puppies being forever fearful of them as an adult. Early socialization—or the lack of it—is a vital determinant of a dog’s lifelong behaviors. Without proper socialization, it is unlikely that a pup will become the adult dog he could have been, whether as a competitor in canine sports or as a happy, well-adjusted pet. This means starting training as soon as your pup gets home and NOT waiting until 4 months and their shots are finished is CRUCIAL to your pups success. “Puppy Play School” and ” Puppy Kindergarten” classes are not training class. They focus only on free play with other random puppies and cause fear, arousal, and aggression problems in many dog when they hit adolescents. Get your puppy started right!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am not ready to commit to a full training package. How can I learn more about your program and how it will apply to my dog?

You can book a Consultation to get to know me better and learn more about my training program. Click here to sign up.

My vet says I can't take my puppy out of the house until 4 months old when he is done with his shots. Is this going to be a problem?

Yes! This is a big problem. Your vet is giving out outdated information. More dogs die every day from behavior problems due to lack of early socialization than from parvo or distemper. Once your puppy had his first vaccination it is time to get started. I will help you make good choice and have you take your puppy to the safest places we can.

What do we do each week?

The first session will induce an evaluation and introduction to my training system.Then you will get a rough timeline for training. Each puppy will get appropriate play with hand picked dogs or puppies, environmental training for confidence, obedience foundation work, handling, and proper greeting skills.

How often will we meet for training?

Book your sessions weekly. Puppies develop quickly so want to get as much training in as we can.

What if I need to reschedule?

I am very flexible with scheduling. Just send me an email telling me you need to change your appointment and what day and time you want to come instead.
