For puppies, life is all about exploring and discovering new things.
There are important life skills and polite behaviours to learn – sit, down, leave, no biting, and calling them back. I’ll help you navigate the challenges of house training, foods and treats, and getting your puppy used to walking on a lead. I also tailor the training to your circumstances, as there may be specific things that need to be covered – sharing a home with cats or toddlers, for example, or getting along with other dogs.
I encourage all new puppy owners to safely expose their puppy to as many different situations as they can, as soon as possible – traffic, children, sheep, horses etc. With a little help to get started, it’ll be an enriching experience for puppy and owner alike.
My training programme at Active Paws covers all these as well as adult dog introductions, working around other puppies, preparing for vet visits and more. Click here to learn more.
One-to-one puppy training programme takes advantage of that curiosity to teach your new arrival the basics. I’ll come to you, so that the puppy is on home turf, and we’ll work from your home and the local area. I start the week after you get them home so they have time to settle in. Once they’ve found their feet (and vaccinations permitting), it’s time to start introducing them to new things.
