Puppy Socialization and Puppy Training
For puppies under 20 weeks, check out our Puppy Training Programs. Time is ticking and the window to socialize your pup is shortening quickly. Many people believe puppy training doesn’t start until their puppy is six months. Puppies can begin training at 6 weeks old and the best time for socializing is between 8 and 20 weeks of age. Training your puppy early can help prevent problem behaviors in the future. Allison has the knowledge and experience to help you have a balanced, well-behaved dog you can take anywhere. She will help develop positive experiences now to prevent problems later and set both you and your puppy up for success.
Group Training Classes
In-home training vs. group class for obedience training or problem behaviors: If you were going to learn how to play the piano, would you choose a quiet place like your living room, or a busy mall? For this reason, most people find training in a group class setting surrounded by other dogs and people frustrating and difficult. Dogs are the same way, they learn best with less distractions and it’s much easier and quicker for your dog to learn in the home. What a dog learns in one place doesn’t translate to behavior in another. Since your dog spends the majority of their time in your home, that’s where we want to do the training. Alternately, most people have trouble relating the training to everyday situations. Our in-home privates focus on directly relating the training to your real world settings. Your training goals will be reached faster, making better use of your time and money. And when it’s time to add distractions, we can take it on the road for real world difficulties.
