Puppy Teaching and Molding Training
Bringing home your puppy is fun and exciting!
The most important part of shaping your puppy’s behavior is to start training early. A fundamental principle of dog training is this: your puppy will learn after he experiences the consequences of his behavior. So, as soon as you bring your puppy home, you need to give him rules. It’s your job to teach your puppy what you want from him: what he can do and what he cannot do. And, to get a well-trained puppy, you need to be committed to reinforcing the training tasks from the very beginning.
A puppy starts learning from every experience, and when you delay training, your puppy misses opportunities to learn your house rules and required manners. Puppies are capable of learning from an early age, and puppies love to learn! They love playing, and though you may not realize it, training can be like a game for them. Waiting to start training at an older age is not ideal; your puppy will have learned incorrectly and will need additional training to undo untoward behaviors that have become ingrained.
I will teach you how to properly introduce your puppy into your home. I will cover how to eliminate irksome behaviors, like biting, jumping, and chewing, as well as discuss dog psychology, behavior molding, and housebreaking. In addition, I will discuss nutrition, canine social structure, and how to properly socialize your puppy to people, other dogs, and even other animals.
Everybody loves a new puppy–even me, after doing this work for 30 years. I look forward to meeting yours and helping you integrate your new dog into your family.
