Dogs are like children, they learn best when they are young, so it really is a case of the sooner the better when it comes to training.
It is really important to create a great training relationship with your puppy at the earliest age possible and lay the foundations for a happy future life together. This should include learning how to communicate and play with your puppy, start your training using reward based methods and ensure your pup is properly socialised Think of it as a ‘Doggy Surestart’
In addition advice can be given on house training, puppy biting, jumping up at visitors etc
Personal Puppy Development Plans include home visits before and/or after your puppy is allowed out with others and covers early training and socialisation. It may also cover issues such as crate training and/or how to start leaving your puppy alone.
A single initial session may include whichever aspects interest or concern you such as:
- getting your puppy to respond to you
- learning through play
- teaching your puppy using rewards
- stopping puppy biting
- advice on house training
- choosing a good dog food

A block of 3 sessions would also include starting basic training such as
