Puppy Training

Puppy training should start as soon as you bring your new puppy home.

Kids and puppies

Puppy training should start as soon as you bring your new puppy home. Puppies are never too young to learn basic commands. In fact the period between 6 weeks and 12 weeks is a critical training period for a puppy. Experiences a puppy has during that time in particular can shape puppy’s behavior for life; especially when it comes to typical dog fears such as thunder storms, fireworks, children, other dogs, etc.


Puppies are a lot of work and should not be brought into a home that is not ready. For instance puppies should come home at about 8 weeks of age at the earliest. At this age, puppies will need to be taken outside to go potty about every two hours. They need to eat 3 times a day at first as well.  Families need to be ready for the typical puppy behaviors such as: accidents on the floor, chewing, nipping, jumping, barking, whining, stealing, and others. Puppies take a lot of time to care for and to train. However if you get started immediately and get the right trainer to help you, it can be a great time of bonding. Plus you can prevent numerous behavior problems by starting a puppy with training as soon as you bring them home.

Kids and puppies are a match made in heaven as the saying goes. Kids and pups can form a bond like no other if proper training happens. Training is not only important for the puppy, but also for your child. Children need to learn how to communicate effectively with puppies. Kids need to know what normal behavior for a puppy is and how to stop unwanted behavior positively. Our in-home training sessions are perfect for children to learn in a comfortable environment.

Kids and Puppies

Puppy socializing is highly entertaining for the humans and extremely important for pups to learn appropriate canine communication.

Puppy Socializing

Basic Training

Basic training for puppies will include things such as: sit, down, come, heel, wait, proper play, appropriate toys and chews, and behavior training as well.

Puppies are born not able to hear and their eyes are closed. Their eyes open between 7 and 14 days and their ears soon follow.

Puppy training in-home or group class? Which is best for you? A group class is good for having several other puppies to socialize with, working on basic dog commands, and basic puppy behavior. In-home sessions are great for people who need puppy training around their schedule and want the entire family involved in the sessions. In-home puppy training sessions are are designed for your family and puppy's specific needs. Some people even choose a combination of some in home puppy training sessions and taking a group puppy class so they can get the benefits of both.
