Why training your puppy from a young age is so important
Cisco is a 5 month old Golden Doodle.
His owners contacted me for training prior to his coming into their lives.We did puppy training with him when he was 10 weeks old - this is a 3 week course.@ the age of 18 weeks old his owners enrolled Cisco in the in home Board and Train programWhat you see in this video is Cisco at work when we are aproximately 1/2 way through his training.
What did your trainer do for your dog after only one week of training?
After one week of training : Cisco is trained both on and off leash. His focus and willingness to work are outstanding. His attitude and bounce are terrific. I am whispering to him throughout the lesson - and he is fully responsive and engaged in his work.
How to avoid common behavioural problems
Cisco’s owner’s started his training with me when he was 10 weeks old and enrolled in the in home Puppy Pre School program In that 2 week program we focused on house rules and manners as well as some light obedienbce. As a result Cisco also knows: not to jump on people Not to nip at hands or clothing Not to destroy items or eat things he shouldnt These are equally important and we started working on those skills when he was just 10 weeks old.
Offers many advantages - especially learning to work around high level distractions. As you can see in the video - Sirius is working around many dogs - all of them running and around - some trying to get his attention and he has to stay on point and do his work for me. What a job for any dog - let alone a 5 month old puppy.

Sirius is a rare breed of dog known as a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. A wonderful breed - albeit too intense for most people. If your idea of fun with your dog is coming home from work and just hanging out - look for another breed. If you want a breed of dog who is ready to go at any time and always up for a job - this could be a breed for you.
