New puppies need lots of guidance and reassurance. Studies have even shown that behaviors developed in puppies between the ages of 6 and 16 weeks carry over well into adulthood. As you can see, it is very important to start these little ones off right and lay the groundwork now necessary for them to develop into well adjusted adult dogs.
The Puppy Parenting class is designed to help new owners, or prospective dog owners, learn how to handle everyday situations with their new puppies. The Trainer conducts a session targeting puppy raising basics. Subjects covered include crate training, nipping, chewing, diet, basic care, social skills (shown to be critical in dog temperament development) and everyday life with your puppy. This class will help you better “parent” your puppy to be an outstanding dog.
Housetraining can be a trying process for anyone. The Housetraining 101 class is a complete session devoted to potty training techniques and methods. The 101 course will create a specific plan for you and your dog, teaching you the exact way to respond to accidents, and putting your dog on the fast track to fully housetrained and reliable. The Housetraining course is structured to work for any breed dog, any age, using the nature behaviors they were born with.
