Successful dog training requires a solid foundation! This course is one of the most important classes you will take with your pup to ensure everything is done properly at home in the right ways.
Originally named Puppy Foundations, it was found that many families with older dogs with social or behavioural issues lacked the fundamental knowledge for communicating and controlling their pets. Therefore, this course is also appropriate for families with dogs under the age of 3 who have not had any formal training before.
This course focuses on properly socializing younger dogs to teach them how to interact with other dogs and people appropriately. You will learn about the foundations of caring for a puppy as well as how to desensitize them to sounds, actions, people, and objects. Topics covered may include housebreaking, crate training, bite inhibition, establishing respectful relationships within your family, controlling nipping, chewing, digging, barking, resource guarding, household manners, how to handle your dog calmly, how to be respectful around food and other items in the home, understanding pet wellness and nutrition, as well as to understand your puppy's mindset (how they think).
The contents of this course are unique in the dog training industry as our trainer combines knowledge across many disciplines (canine behaviour, body language, nutrition, and wellness) to enrich the learning for the students.
