So you have a new puppy and he is just adorable. Snuggles, licks, the occasional nibble, he’s so warm, so cuddly, so furry and so completely and utterly adorable. Adorable until he stands on the kitchen table, helps himself to snacks, grabs the banana out your child’s hand and growls at the dog next door.
Puppy training is important.
Puppy training is vital. It does not matter on the breed of the dog but the earlier you train the dog the better. It is suggested that puppies start school from the age of 12 weeks onwards. The pup must be up to date with his vaccinations, and should be given the ‘okay’ by the vet before he starts school.
Going to puppy school is fun, but it is also a commitment. If possible, the same person (adult, teenager, puppy caregiver) should bring the dog each week. This ensures consistency as well as understanding between the dog and his human.
So what can you expect from your puppy and our puppy school?
- A dog that listens.
- A dog that comes when you call it.
- A dog that sits, waits and stays.
- A dog that does not jump on the kitchen table.
- A dog that does not help himself to treats.
- A dog who is sociable, with other dogs, cats and people.
- A dog who is respectful of his owners and others.
- A dog who does not jump.
- A dog who has a great time but is well behaved.
It’s all about basic obedience and socialisation. A dog who listens to you is the best kind of dog. And a dog that understands boundaries is the best kind of dog. Also, a dog who loves playing with other dogs, is not aggressive with children, and basically has tons of fun while being respectful, is the dog we all aspire to have.
A good puppy trainer will help you train your pup. We have excellent puppy schools and puppy training methods. We will tell you when we think you and your dog should start, and we will ensure that your puppy is fully vaccinated and ready for his first day of school.
