Relationships depend on clear communication, respect, empathy, consideration, and kindness. Communication and training with any species is a two-way street that involves listening, observing, and then relaying information. Your pup is constantly learning everyday so you might as well help him learn the appropriate behaviors! Ultimately, training your dog can help him become a participating member of your family. He will know what is expected and gain confidence in his environment. This will create a wonderful relationship of trust and understanding. I look forward to helping you on this journey with your precious pup. - Leeann Holloway, CPDT-KA
Congratulations to our recent Puppy Kindergarten Class Graduates!
Mat training can be taught to the youngest of puppies. Quinn is 9 weeks old in this video. We are practicing "Down" which means go lie down on your bed. His bed is located off the kitchen so he can have somewhere to go while his owners are eating or preparing food. The trick to working with young puppies is to keep your session short and fun!
