  • Training began with your puppy the moment they were born. The dam and litter mates begin teaching each puppy how to interact with other dogs appropriately.

  • We continue their training through socialization by offering the experiences with all kinds of people and experiences.

  • You begin training your puppy the minute you bring them home. You are either teaching them to do what you want or that they can do whatever they want.

  • Never give your puppy a command that you do not intend to make them obey. He is just learning and doesn’t understand what you are saying it will take repetition and patience to help him/her understand.

  • Training should be like play. It should be fun. It should only last as long as the puppy is interested. When you see your puppy tire or start losing interest stop! Anything beyond this point will be detrimental to your end goal.

Training Resources 


Zak George's Dog Training Revolution - https://amzn.to/3qHURmP

I read this book and used his YouTube videos Zak does an amazing job. 

The book is a great resource, I will keep it handy as a resource during training.

I highly recommend it.

 

A.K.C. Star Puppy - https://amzn.to/3PgfEHB

This book is by AKC. It is also fantastic.

All new puppy owners should read this book before taking their puppy home.

I highly recommend it.

 

Canine Good Citizenship - https://amzn.to/45IchhS

This is a good follow up to A.K.C. Star Puppy

How To Housebreak your Dog in 7 Days - https://amzn.to/3snHrfY

There are a few things that I disagree with but overall it is a solid concept for house training...

Spoiler alert it is not actually 7 days to TOTAL house training.

However, if you follow the plan you will be on the path to success.
