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.
They absorb information quickly and tend to retain well - given the right instruction.Take Amber as an example - here she is after one week of training and she is fully trained on and off leash. A couple of clips here demonstrate some of what she has learned.
Essential commands every dog should know
Heel, Sit, Stay, Come
Going for a stroll with your dog is much easier when these commands are firmly in place.
Off leash training for your peace of mind and your dog’s safety
Amber is trained to respond both with and without a leash - this makes living with her much easier and much safer for everyone.
Teaching your dog to go to and stay on her place is very useful
Especially at dinner time or when you just need your dog to settle down in one spot for a while.Amber is happy to demonstrate this one since she is always tired at the end of of a training session.
