This Puppy Training is all about preventing future behavioral issues that dogs commonly develop, as well as addressing any immediate questions, concerns or puppy issues you may have. We understand bringing a new puppy home can be quite an event and depending on the pup, also introduce a new set of fun challenges to go through!
Some of the common puppy-related topics our clients ask us help about are
- Constant nipping
- Constant jumping
- Constant barking
- Constant chewing
- Constant licking
- Constant whining
- Crate training
- Separation anxiety
- Potty Training
Puppy Training will rarely go past the one initial session. The following is the structure of a Puppy Training session:
1. Address your questions & concerns
We can take some time after my arrival, to sit down and go through any questions and concerns you may have put together. I do recommend you putting together a list with all the points you would like us to touch, to begin with. I will onto that add any additional points and information that you will need to take into account, as our session goes.
2. See your dog's behavior/obedience issues
Often times step 1 might get mixed in and done at the same time as this second step, depending on the severity of the issue. This is when I get to draw a picture of your dog and how he behaves in his main environment and why.
3. Put together a course of action
None of my suggestions will take place during our session without the puppy's owner's approval. The plan I will have come up with to help your puppy will depend very much on his level of energy, past experiences, his reactions and his skills. You will hear me refer to your pup as being more of an "athlete" or a "mathlete".
4. Execute/adjust plan and get results
This is when we get to work on the actual issue. The more members of your home are present during this part of the session, the better we can have everyone be on the same page regarding the course of action and how we expect the puppy to interact with everyone.
This is when we get to go through the session and make sure we haven't forgotten any points and address any other questions or concerns that might have come up. I will also then recommend some of the following tools, contingent on what I have discerned your puppy's needs are.
- Lavender balm:
Rubbing a bit of lavender on your hands will help your dog relax a little bit more when he's home. This will not work with a hyperactive pup that needs physical and mental stimulation above all.
- AK KYC Snuffle Mat
The "mathlete" inside your puppy will love to be able to use his nose to figure out where the hidden treat is. This grey color also sits very well with most people's home decor!
- Tricky Treat Ball
This is a good toy to help with moments where your dog isn't too energetic and just needs a little toy to be entertained by for a bit. The treats you put inside it will not get out unless your dog learns to roll the ball a certain way.
- 50ft Justzon Cotton Web Leash
This is a good leash if you have a large enough backyard or open space (that is safe) where you're not focused much on having your dog learn to walk, but rather burn off some energy while walking the opposite direction of your pup, creating a bit of distance he then has to make up for by running back to where you are!
