Asked Questions 

F.A.Q's, Frequently Asked Questions

What age can dog training begin and why is it important?

As soon as you bring puppy home you should start with boundary training. This will help prevent from unwanted behaviors such as; potty accidents, chewing power cords etc. 

Your puppy's age is critical for two reasons, First, at the ages of 3 weeks to 12 weeks this is the most important stage of your puppy's development. Usually puppy's go home with their new human families by the ages of 7 weeks to 12 weeks, this is right in the middle of your puppy's socialization period. 

Secondly, during this age your puppy is developing their reactions to all the things around much more consistently. You will want to expose your puppy in a structured manner to as many new sights, sounds, people, children, other vaccinated dogs (no dog parks!). Always making sure to keep your puppy safe from negative situations or in areas where they can contract a contagious disease.

After your puppy has received their vaccinations (around 14-16 weeks) enroll your puppy in group classes to start to continue proper exposure while working on their obedience training.  


A dog is never too young or too old to learn proper behaviors that will keep them as part of a good member of society.
