Have a new pooch? Isn’t he the cutest, most cuddly little thing? Well if you want him to grow up as a well-mannered and obedient dog then you need to go back to school.
Why should I?
Most new puppy owners don’t realize how important it is to register your new pooch in puppy classes. New owners need guidance to help raise their new best friend. These classes cover everything from vaccinations and health care to feeding and daily care. It also allows your dog to socialize with other dogs – a huge part in raising a healthy pet.
A well socialized dog makes a great companion and is not aggressive toward or afraid of anyone or anything it would come across in your day-to-day life.
What to look for in a puppy trainer
Manage your expectations
When you decide to register in puppy school be sure that the expectations are clear. You want to have a structured course that plainly outlines what is being delivered and what the results will be upon completion. Realize that a big part of this process is socialization, so puppy play is strongly encouraged!
