What you will learn in your Foundations course?
Understanding your new family member
Your puppy starts learning from you from the moment you pick them up. Early stages of development are very important for our puppies as they grow into adolescent and adult dogs.
It is essential to set them up for success through understanding how they learn and how to manage the environment to enable them to show wanted behaviour choices.
Early stage training
Begin training your puppy basic behaviours and understand how your puppy see’s and understands their world. Engaging in positive reward training methods to promote the desired behaviour choices in all situations.
Manners and impulse control
Learn how to read your puppy’s body language and what motivates those unwanted behaviour. Learn managment and training skills to train your puppy to control themselves.
Avoid common puppy mistakes
As well as discussing their development. We will also discuss and practice ways to avoid common mistakes made during puppyhood and adolescents.
Raise your questions
Each week we will set aside time for you to discuss any issues you have had over the week between classes. You’ll also be able to contact us between classes if you need support or fast answers.
