Training For Puppies And Adolescent Dogs

We have lots of options for puppies/adolescents, however, if you are looking for a recommendation we highly recommend Puppy Parenting 101

 

Online training for a young dog is superior to face to face training in our opinion and here’s why:

  • Face to face group classes are often set up for your puppy to fail. They can be loud, busy and make it hard for your puppy (and you!) to concentrate. Even having a 1:1 trainer in your home creates a “fake” scenario for your dog to learn in.
  • It is a common misconception that a young dog needs to “socialise” with other dogs. In fact you’re better off teaching a young dog to be neutral towards other dogs, or to quietly interact with a calm OLDER dog for short periods where appropriate, not with another pup that also lacks social skills! This is difficult for lots of dogs and teaching focus without other dogs around first is much easier on them
  • Because of the very stimulating environment of a face to face class, often our puppies make lots of mistakes, whereas for training to go more smoothly, we want instead, to set the environment up for your dog to succeed! This is much more achievable at home.
