When should I start training?

Right away! The sooner you learn the correct methods the faster you will be able to communicate with your dog and get the behaviors you want.

Training a younger puppy is easier; habits (both good and bad) can be formed in as little as 2-3 weeks. As soon as you get a new dog or puppy, whether you know it or not, training has already begun. So the sooner you start teaching your new family member – the better!

Ideally, training would start with an In-Home Visit the first week or two after getting a new puppy or adult dog. Once you learn our methods and create the right environment for success, training will be a breeze! Follow-Up Visits, Group classes, and even Online Coaching can help with socialization, any problem areas that arise and will help to maintain follow through.
