What’s Best for Your Puppy

The key to a well-behaved and well-adjusted dog is a proactive human. The first 4 months of life is the MOST important time to start teaching your dog and instilling good habits. Don’t wait until you are having problems! Most people don’t realize how easy (and fun!) it is to teach their puppies the basics when they are just 2-3 months old, as well as how healthy early, non-aversive training is for a solid temperament an even brain development. Thoughtful, safe socialization is also critical.

If you have a new puppy, take advantage of this precious window of time to give him/her a strong start in life! NOTE: if you have a puppy that is already exhibiting worrying behaviors (shyness, fear, aggression, etc.) please do not wait another day to contact me. The odds that these behaviors will get better with maturity are very low. There will never be an easier time to address these issues than right now!
