When is the best time to start puppy training? Is my puppy old enough to start training?
If we could, we would start puppy training before the new puppy even comes home for the first time. In these earliest stages, especially before vaccinations are in place, it is not about the puppy but about helping you to follow the right path from the beginning, preventing problems further down the line. There is a lot of information available about bringing a puppy home and how to act in the early days but the value of bespoke advice cannot be underestimated. We carry out pre-arrival online consultations to understand your home, your needs, your lifestyle and the personality of your new puppy to help you best prepare for training success.
Beyond this first stage, our programmes are age-related. We start with kindergarten, move on to puppy school and for those who need it we have an adolescence programme. The sooner you and your puppy are committed to training, the easier it is to encourage good behaviours.
