Puppy Starter & Manners Training consists of private
, in-home lessons that provide you with the knowledge, tools, and hands-on training in raising a puppy. It's recommended for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks of age. The lessons are informative, educational, and practical. Topics include housebreaking, crate training, loose-leash walking, leadership training, house manners, exercise, socialization, and more.
The first few months of a puppy's life are most crucial when they come to live with us humans. Rules and boundaries must be put in place from the moment the puppy enters the new home. During this time, it's essential to establish yourself as their leader. This teaches the dog what IS and what is NOT acceptable behaviour. Establishing leadership in your puppy's life will give you the control to address, solve and prevent problem behaviours from arising.
Puppies can be a lot of work, but if you invest the time and energy early in their life, you'll be rewarded with a calm, balanced, and well-behaved companion for years to come.
