Puppy Training - under 6 months
Puppy Training Classes
“Our last puppy was so much easier to train, we are at a loss with this one!”
Raising three young boys between 9-14, they thought getting a puppy would be good idea. After just three weeks, they were at the end of the rope. The puppy was chasing the kids around nipping, making the youngest cry. The youngest was becoming afraid of him.
Potty training meant finding all the places the puppy went after the fact. It might have been only once or twice a day, but it seemed like someone was ALWAYS stepping in dog poop. In fact, Dad even shouted once that if he stepped in one more pile he was going to send the dog away!
And chewing? Boy could that dog chew. He was small, but he could get the laces torn out of shoes in a heartbeat. He even pulled up the edges of the carpet. The family estimated that he’d done $1500 in damage in the three weeks they had him! They tried kennel training, but he barked and howled all day. The neighbors complained about the nuisance barking, and it wasn't any better when they were home. He barked all night and no one got any sleep.
It all just seemed to be too much! So they called us. They got into a group class and learned how to manage these behaviors.
