1-2-1 Puppy Training; prevention of problem behaviour and teaching of basic obedience.

Everyone loves puppies, right? If you are thinking about buying a puppy or have recently bought one if can help you avoid common pitfalls, advice on choosing a breeder and show you how to nurture your pet into happy adulthood. It's always best to prevent unwanted behaviour occurring rather than to fix it after it's happened. See my advice; should I get a puppy?

If you are a first-time puppy owner, I offer puppy preparation sessions before you bring your new puppy home and starting your puppy's training. This helps you to give your puppy the best start with its new family and will give you the confidence that you are doing the best for her/him.

Edna as a puppyIf it's your first puppy it can be quite a daunting task to train them by yourself. Puppies bite and make a mess on your floors and can be incredible labour intensive, leading to frustration and tears.

These are some of the things I can help you with;

  • The first night home
  • House training
  • Crate training - not compulsory
  • Biting and teething
  • Happy grooming and bath time
  • Chewing
  • Whining and barking at night
  • Excellent recall
  • Great lead walking
  • No jumping up
  • Don't touch
  • Let go
  • Socialisation
  • Sit/Down/Stay
  • Anxiety
  • Confidence building
  • Healthy play
  • Any tricks you want to teach 
  • Preventing resource guarding
  • Prevention of separation anxiety
  • Instructive reprimands - no need for 'NO'
  • Front door safety  - reduce the risk of the puppy running out and getting run over
  • Human foods that are poisonous to dogs

As an experienced puppy trainer, I would love to show you the joy of having your puppy understand its first trick or command. By developing attentiveness and enjoyable effective training techniques you will begin a wonderful life together.

Many puppies end up in rescue centres because of problems that the owners can’t solve. Call me as soon as you can if you are worried or struggling to cope. Problems will only get worse if you leave it longer.

It's important to get the life-saving commands well trained early in the puppy's life. Together we can make these commands solid so that they work in every situation imaginable. Let's get started!
