Choosing to add a furry friend, especially a puppy, to their family can be a significant milestone in a human’s life. Your puppy will need your attention, care, and love as if they were a newborn child. Puppies can be considered as new four-legged members of the family, and in many cases, are treated and cared for as if they were children.

Training a puppy requires a considerable amount of effort, patience, and consistency. As with human children, puppies go through various stages of development. Each stage with its unique needs and challenges. Similar to newborns, puppies require an adjustment period to get used to their new environment and establish a routine. During the toddler stage, puppies tend to be more curious and adventurous. This can lead to some destructive behaviors such as chewing, digging, and scratching.

As puppies enter the adolescent stage, they may become more independent, testing boundaries and displaying more stubbornness. At this stage, impulse control issues, bad behavior, and even aggression may arise if not addressed with proper training. Positive reinforcement training is most effective for shaping your puppy’s behavior and preventing harmful behaviors from developing.

While training a puppy shares similarities with training human children, there are key differences that should be taken into account. Puppies have shorter attention spans and require more frequent training sessions with shorter duration. Additionally, their sense hearing is more acute than humans, so the tone of your voice and body language will have a significant impact on their behavior.

While we may be used to instant results, dogs need time to learn and adjust to new behaviors. If you push them too hard, they may become frustrated and lose progress. It’s easy to feel like they’re being stubborn, but it’s important to remember that they’re just learning at their own pace. Patience is key in this process, and to remember that progress does take time. Just like the pyramids weren’t built in a day, training your dog takes time and dedication.

Training your beloved puppy can be achieved in one of 2 ways

I can help you train your beloved pet through two types of personalized, private, one-on-one training programs that are done in the comfort of your home. The first program is the one-on-one training program, where I coach you through the process of training your dog. This involves working with you and your furry best friend over a certain number of weeks to teach you how to communicate with your dog and reward them properly. I’ll also help you create a daily schedule that works for both you and your pet, and offer guidance on what to do when things aren’t going well during your practice sessions between our training sessions.

The second program is the puppy training program, where I will train your dog for you through Doggie Home School. This is a great option for those who are short on time but still want their puppy trained by a professional.

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the dog training package options out there? It’s no wonder, as choosing the right one can be confusing. The good news is that I’m here to help you. By starting with an initial consultation and assessment, I can get to know you and your dog better and guide you more effectively on your dog training journey. Whether you prefer a virtual or in-person consultation, I’ve got you covered. For more information on my services and packages, make sure to check out my services page.
