All puppies of all breeds need boundaries set and at minimal, basic puppy training. Without this, the puppy will grow into a BIG BULLY with no limits to what it will do. In Addition, the puppy will grow into a dog may be uncontrollable, unruly, and frankly – just a bully. However, since we only have these babies a very small amount of time in their lives, it is extremely important that training continues in their new homes. We are here to provide training tips, advice on behavior issues, potty training, leash training, crate training, and other frequently asked training related questions.
<h3>When Do I Start Puppy Training?</h3>
While your puppy is here with us, we do start basic puppy training. It is sometimes difficult when the litter is together. It is not due to time, but more due to distraction of the litter mates. Often, puppy pads become chew and tugging toys. Shredded until they are bits and pieces of nothing, just two minutes after putting nice clean puppy pads in. Five puppies can be doing great at puppy pad training, while two renegades are off pooping in a corner, and the “trained” puppies backtrack and follow the renegade litter mates’ lead. Leashes become tug of war ropes, and the puppy in training is being walked (the better word is PULLED) by the rambunctious litter mate who feels that the leash is a great new toy from the pet store.
LOL. Needless to day, we advise puppy training to begin, even if minimal, the day your puppy is home. They will retain some of our training, but will need a one on one refresher course in the art of being a trained pet. They should pick it back up right away. Please be diligent with your training. It will seem like a very crazy and burdensome couple of weeks, but this training will absolutely last their lifetime.
