Puppy Training

If you've recently had a new furry addition to your happy family this holiday then there should only be two words on your lips: PUPPY TRAINING! Dogs who are not properly trained in the early stages can be a complete handful later on, ruining your furniture, destroying your property, and generally being a nuisance. Luckily for you, help is on hand! Puppy training is relatively easy and just takes a short period of time every week. Puppy socialising and training classes usually happen on a Saturday or Sunday morning so that you can easily fit it into your working schedule. Your puppy gets introduced to other puppies its own age, and learns to interact playfully with other animals which will assist in preventing hostile behaviour at a later age. You, as the dog owner, and your puppy will also learn all of the important tricks that will ensure a long and happy relationship with your new dog. Puppy training can teach your dog how to sit, how to stay on a lead, how to do its 'business' outside, and how to quell its barking. Puppy training is a two-way street that requires a bit of effort and homework practice from you as well, so be sure that you are committed in the early months to ensure a long life of happiness and good behaviour from your new best friend!
