You have a new puppy. He or she is as cute as a button and you and your family are filled with joy excitement. You’ve picked out a name, bought its food, kennel and everything else in between. But have you thought about training for your new bundle of joy?
In amongst all your excitement, it’s likely that you haven’t (and we don’t blame you).
The fact of the matter is though, taking care of your puppy is now a priority in your life and puppy training is a big part of that.
Why? We take you through 4 of the many benefits of puppy training to help you find out.
1. The best possible start in life
A puppy’s first six months are the most important months of their lives, as this is the age where learning takes place rapidly and their brain is a bit like a sponge, ready to soak up everything they see and hear.
Therefore, it’s important to capitalise on this important period as any experiences and learning during will make a stronger impression than ever and the right training, will set the right pattern for a well-behaved dog in the future.
We’ve all seen dogs that don’t socialise well with other dogs. Chances are they didn’t attend puppy training back in their puppy days.
Puppy training provides your puppy with a chance to socialise with a variety of other dog breeds. Exposing puppies to other dogs in different settings and situations in their early days, teaches them how to play and get along with other dogs and is crucial for future experiences.
Of course, socialisation with humans other than the owners is important too, with trainers and many other dog owners attending, puppy training helps with this aspect too.
Puppy training is the perfect opportunity for you and your new puppy to bond.
Bonding as the puppy’s leader in a setting such as puppy school, will help build a stronger relationship, establish yourself as the leader and owner, and help ensure they follow the rules you begin to set in place – Your future self will thank you for it.
Just like we want to help children grow into confident and capable adults, we want the same for our puppies too – Puppy training courses are specifically designed to do just that.
The tips and tricks you and your puppy will learn will help ensure your new puppy grows into a confident, relaxed and well-adjusted adult dog, allowing for a better life for your dog, you and your family.
Training for your new furry family member is a big part of taking care of your new puppy. So, ensure your puppy learns good habits and grows into a confident, relaxed and well-adjusted adult dog by booking into puppy school.
