A NEW PUPPY
You have decided to get a puppy. You’ve done your research on which breed will fit into your family. Will they need lots of exercise, or will they be a couch potato. Most gundog and working breeds will need more exercise, and things to do to keep them on the straight and narrow. The day has arrived when you are to bring your new addition home. Everyone is excited, you have prepared your house for their arrival, the shopping is complete and you have their food, a soft bed, a new lead and collar/harness, complete with identity tag, and lots and lots of toys. Everything a puppy might like to chew is put out of reach and things that may harm them such as electric cables are made inaccessible.
Training starts as soon as you bring your puppy home, toilet training, coming to call, sitting for their meals, social visits with visitors, short trips in the car and how to behave at the vets. This can all be achieved in a fun and positive way.
The vaccinations are now complete and your puppy is allowed to mix with other puppies and dogs so your attention is focused on finding a puppy group. Here at Easy Steps Dog Training we believe in getting puppies into a training group as soon as possible. From vaccination to 20 weeks a puppy learns very quickly, and at this stage of their education is crucial in providing them with social skills for life. We achieve this using food based rewards, and actively encourage the whole family to take part in the training sessions. Remember, the most important thing is to have fun training your puppy.
Easy Steps Dog Training has suspended all training groups, 1 to 1 sessions and dog walking. This will be reviewed at the end of April. If you are currently training with us you can contact us for any advice regarding your puppy's/dog's training. Updates will appear on this website and our Facebook page. Wishing you well in these worrying times.
