Can My Puppy Be Trained?

  • Training can begin as soon as your newest family member comes home! Socializing your puppy helps to ensure that he/she grows into a secure, calm and well-mannered dog!
  • Make allnew experiences positive when socializing your puppy.
  • Get your puppy use to a collar and leash early by giving rewards without any tension on the leash.
  • Start teaching your puppy to come on command by saying their name followed by a reward.
  • Supervise your puppy 100% during the potty training phase. Never punish for eliminating inside.
  • Remember canines are, by nature, den animals. Crate training your puppy gives them a safe place; keep it positive!
