When a pup leaves its canine family it is yearning to reattach to a new family who will take care of them. Pups under the age of 8 months old are like sponges ready to absorb as much information about the world as they can. Early puppy training means you can ensure that they absorb all the information necessary for them to become a balanced canine companion. The skills we are interested in teaching will include the following commands and structure.
Basic commands including sit, down and stay. These commands are the building blocks to an obedient and well balanced pet. They will provide you the ability to learn how to communicate effectively with your pet.
Crate training is vital to assist in keeping a puppy safe and secure. We will teach the pup that their crate is a happy, safe place they can be comfortable in. The crate will be the place they go when you are unable to keep a vigilant eye on them. An unsupervised puppy is an unsafe puppy.
Walking at heel is just as important as the first commands. Your dog will be focused on you and maintain a safe and controllable distance. This will make walks a pleasure to take and help build the bond between you and your beloved pet. Having the dog sit automatically when you stop walking will enable you to greet neighbors and their pets in a respectable manner with ease. And lets not forget about what you will gain when a dog masters the stay command. It will free up your hands and concerns that you would otherwise have with an uncontrollable, untrained pet. You can focus on other tasks while confidently knowing your pet is safe.
You will have learned to communicate with your dog by practicing the previous commands they've been taught. With your new found ability to communicate, you will now be able to approve or disapprove of your pups behavior. You will be able to correct any unwanted behavior and guide you pup to what's acceptable. Thus creating a bond that is incomparable to any other you have experienced.
