While working with a dog trainer in Nashville we talked a lot about puppies. Bringing home a new puppy is exciting! It’s like bringing home your newborn baby from the hospital. Like an infant, your puppy is depending on you for survival and to teach them right from wrong. It is your job to set your dog up for success and to help them transition from a playful puppy to a well- mannered adult dog.
Our in- home puppy training program will address all of your puppies basic needs. We will teach your puppy basic commands, obedience, housebreaking and we will help them get acclimated to their new environment and their new family. When training a puppy it is important to realize that puppies will be puppies. Therefore, we will not over work your puppy during the training sessions. We will work on mastering a few simple commands at a time before moving on to more advanced training.
I have had several clients who have waited until there dog has reached adulthood before opting to enroll their dog into training. Many pet parents confess that they’ve overlooked their dog’s nipping and jumping when they were a puppy and now that their dog has gotten older they are out of control. I cannot stress enough how important it is to start training your puppy when they are young. Not only will it teach them manners, it will also set boundaries early on and establish a clear line of communication.
