Your Puppy is learning all the time, even when you think you’re not teaching.
When your new puppy arrives at home. Many things can develop quickly, and puppy training starts the moment you collect your new family addition. Our dogs are always learning whether it is something we want them to learn or not. Puppy training begins when they arrive home with you; the breeder should have started this training for you. With adequate preparation and knowledge, we can make our puppies transition towards adulthood as smooth as possible for everyone. Consistency on our part is the key to an enjoyable start to a new life together.
With a Puppy Training Home Start, you will be heading towards success.
Home starts are there to help you get off on the right foot. We will give advice will on the basics of house training or puppy toilet training, how puppies learn, exercise and diet. Another essential factor is getting your puppy used to everyday situations. Such as what to chew and when, being around children, getting used to periods of being alone without getting distressed and getting used to travelling in vehicles.
Starting to train your puppy
When they arrive home is also the time to begin their basic training of sits, downs, settle, hand touches, leaves. Other exercises, like Loose lead walking and recall, also starts at this early stage. All training will be designed to suit both your dogs and your lifestyle and abilities.
Puppies are always learning
Your puppy is learning from you every moment they are with you, whether you think you are teaching or not. We will help you learn how not to reinforce unwanted habits or behaviours and to be the consistent teacher your puppy needs you to be.
Puppies grow up fast!

Puppy Socialisation is an essential part of growing up.
Socialisation is an essential part of a puppy's early education. Puppies like all young are not born with social skills or impulse control (self-control/manners). Both of these and more need to be taught to the puppy at their own pace and in a positive way. What a puppy experiences during the first 16 weeks of like creates a blueprint of what’s normal.
What to do to help our puppies
By introducing puppies to new and novel items and situations in a way that your puppy is relaxed. Including but not limited to:
- Humans- Women, Men and Children in all shapes and sizes.
- Groups of Children
- Other Puppies

- house noises - washing machine, vacuum cleaner, doorbell, letterbox etc.
- Vehicles - travelling in and watching them move.
This short list is just a quick guide to some of the basics.
