What is the first thing you should teach your puppy?

Housebreaking: Teaching your puppy where he or she needs to go potty. Most people desire their puppy to go potty outside or some people prefer their puppy to learn to go potty on a pee pad.. whatever your goal, its now up to you (the puppy owner) to teach your puppy the appropriate potty area. Routine and consistency is key. Ensuring your puppy learns exactly where the potty area is requires your puppy to never have the opportunity to go pee or poop in your home.

Crate training can significantly help achieve this.


Puppy biting:We all recognize puppies have sharp teeth. However teaching your puppy not to use those sharp teeth on humans is important. Puppy biting very rarely causes any major harm, but one thing is for sure when a young puppy bites it is often unpleasant and rather painful due to their needle sharp teeth. How we teach our puppy to use his mouth is of the utmost importance.  Its important your puppy learn bite inhibition and most importantly its not appropriate to use his or her mouth on any human for any interactions.

It is NOT necessary to inflict pain on your puppy to communicate to him  or her that the biting hers… and simple loud “Yelp” works well. Let us provide you with effective techniques to help you and your family overcome this challenge.


Socialization: We cannot emphasize puppy socialize enough. Teaching your puppy to become well socialized around other puppies, dogs, people, kids, traffic what ever environment you live in, teaching your puppy to Puppy handling and socializationbe able to navigate around each one is critical to your puppies overall confidence and emotional wellbeing.

Due to the critical imprinting phase your puppy has, which is up to 13 weeks. Its of the utmost importance  you ensure your puppy receives the appropriate amount of socialization within that window.  During this critical puppy developmental phase your puppy should be socialized with as many young puppies of similar age, all breeds and sizes (i.e. all must have puppy teeth). As well as socializing with everything in and around the environment where your puppy lives and stimulus your puppy is expected to come into contact with.

What is the ideal age to start training?

Puppy Trainer MarylandYour puppy is never too young to learn, so the recommended age to get started on training is 10 weeks or even young,  but training can also occur later and our programs can help with all your training needs. 

Working with your puppy during their imprinting stage is important.  But the longer you leave training the more opportunity your puppy has to develop a pattern of undesirable behaviors and training can become more challenging, therefore, our training programs are available to all puppies of all ages.
