Online Puppy Training Course

Puppyhood (especially the first 16 weeks of your dog’s life) is the best time to lay the foundation for the canine companion of your dreams. If you’re looking forward to a calm, relaxed, easy-going, friendly, confident, well-adjusted adult dog – puppy training that includes systematic socialization, confidence building, installing life skills and training is the key.

Early and adequate socialization and programs of positive training can go a long way to preventing behavior problems and improving bonding between humans and dogs.

Train Your Puppy with Expert-Led Online Training from D for Dogz

The primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of life. During this time puppies should be exposed to as many new people, animals, stimuli and environments as can be achieved safely and without causing overstimulation manifested as excessive fear, withdrawal or avoidance behavior. For this reason, the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior believes that it should be the standard of care for puppies to receive such socialization before they are fully vaccinated.

Start Homeschooling your puppy and make the most of their critical learning period while you wait to enroll in the Puppy Class.

The Benefits of Early Puppy Training

Crucial Development Phase

The first few months of a puppy’s life are a rapid period of growth and learning. Their brains are like sponges, absorbing information about the environment, people, and other animals. This early phase is when many habits and behaviors start to form. By starting training early, you can shape these behaviors positively and constructively.

Foundation for Well-Adjusted Adult Dogs

Because the first three months are the period when sociability outweighs fear, this is the primary window of opportunity for puppies to adapt to new people, animals, and experiences. Incomplete or improper socialization during this important time can increase the risk of behavioral problems later in life including fear, avoidance, and/or aggression.

Socialization and Confidence Building

Veterinarians specializing in behavior recommend that owners take advantage of every safe opportunity to expose young puppies to the great variety of stimuli that they will experience in their lives. Every effort should be made to expose them to as many different people, well-socialized animals, situations, places, etc. as possible. Puppies should be encouraged to explore, investigate, and manipulate their environments. Interactive toys and games, a variety of surfaces, tunnels, steps, chutes, and other stimuli can enrich the puppy’s environment. Puppies should accompany their breeders/owners on as many car trips as possible. These exposures should continue into adulthood to maintain an outgoing and sociable dog.

Early and adequate socialization and programs of positive training can go a long way to preventing behavior problems and improving bonding between humans and dogs. While the first three months is the most important socialization period in a puppy’s life, owners of puppies that have passed this milestone are strongly encouraged to continue to socialize their puppies to as many people, pets, and locations as is practical.

A socially confident dog is not only a joy to be around but is also less likely to display problematic behaviors as they mature.
