Puppy Training & Support
You'll benefit from a lot of support during your puppy's early developmental period. The 'imprinting time' ends around 16 weeks of age. Everything they have experienced until then, good and bad, sticks for life, so, getting this part right will serve you both well!
Having a happy, solid, grounded dog makes for a more relaxed life with a dog. They start by getting used to their new home. This includes learning where to relieve themselves, as well as what they can and can't bite, chew, eat, sleep on, climb on, or make noise about. Getting accustomed to people of all types and ages is also learned during this adjustment period. There's a lot they don't understand.
I will teach you about identifying your puppy's needs verses wants; how to create boundaries, both physical and otherwise; and how to offer 'time-outs' when undesirable behaviors occur. Since our dogs are the sum of what they experience, let's be intentional, proactive, and teach our puppies what they need to know. Otherwise, they will make it up for themselves!
I will teach you techniques and protocols that kindly help your puppy understand what you want. By helping you understand and work through the frustrations and challenges of puppyhood, you will experience more calm and harmony in your home.
We will begin our work together with a virtual consultation to discuss your areas of concern. I will make observations, and then map out the best steps forward together.
