A smooth start to a puppy’s life can make training easier down the road. Be prepared before pick-up time to make the transition as smooth as possible. Remember: the dog your puppy is going to be it is now becoming – work to keep positive associations with everything in the environment.
After a puppy passes the 7 week mark, their brain is now able to learn as well as an adult dog’s brain. An important developmental window closes at about 16 weeks of age. Early experiences help shape a puppy’s world view. Make sure that you are taking the proper steps to keep your dog well trained through adulthood.
Learn how to communicate with your dog to get the behavior you want and manage your dog to prevent the behavior you do not want. This 90-minute session will provide you with what you need to get started on the path to peace with your dog.
