Puppy socialization and obedience training programs: from
eight weeks and up. Denver, Colorado
It is never too soon! Puppies go through critical
periods. If certain things are not taught in the first four months
of life, it will be much more difficult for them to learn later.
The behaviors your puppy learns at a young age will establish how
well your dog is trained and behaves for the rest of its life.
We will show you how to create behaviors you want and how to eliminate
bad behaviors from ever developing with your puppy. And
make it fun!!!
This is one of the most commonly misused and misunderstood
words in dog training. Here’s the real story: Socialization
is a brain development period that is critical to your puppy's
well being. You do not need attend a puppy kindergarten group
class once a week and let your puppy run wild, in order to "socialize” your
pup. Quite the opposite. Your puppy needs to be exposed to controlled,real
life situations, at just the right times. This assures that the
proper critical brain development takes place, so your puppy
can learn to cope with the real world. At The Canine College,
we cannot over-emphasize the importance of proper socialization
and puppy training. We can and will teach you the best
and correct way to do this.
By starting your puppy in obedience classes at eight weeks
of age, I can guarantee complete obedience training on the leash
by 16 weeks (4 mos.), if instruction is followed.
Please. Don’t listen to anyone who
tells you to wait until your puppy is 4 or 6 months old to start
socializing and obedience training. This is simply incorrect.
It really is never too soon.
