This week is all about the human family members, while puppies stay home and practice having some alone time, we will answer all your most pressing questions. We will cover things like toilet training, inappropriate biting and chewing, jumping and barking. As well as all this, we will chat about overall health and wellbeing for your puppies. Finally, we will learn all about clicker training and send you home with plenty to practice!
Week two is all about bravery! Young puppies are constantly learning new things about the world around them, and it is our job to help them learn how to encounter new things without feeling frightened. This week puppies will explore a fun exposure setup full of lots of things which can sometimes be a bit scary! We will also practice a mock vet and grooming visit, to help normalise these scenarios so that puppies can visit vets and groomers happily and with confidence
Week three is our obedience week, we know how important it is that the puppies we live with to listen well and follow commands politely and effectively. This week we will put our clicker skills to use and use luring to learn the basic commands – sit, drop, stand and place. We will learn where and how to teach and use command words effectively so that puppies have a clear understanding of what we want them to do, and are able to happily and enthusiastically comply when asked.
Week four is full of skills for being out and about with your puppy. This week we will work on some loose leash skills for happy and calm walks for both dogs and humans. We will also practice some recall skills, having a run around off leash is a great treat for dogs, and the most important part of this is knowing they will return safely and immediately when called. We finish up with The Big Graduation
