Puppy Home Start

Prevention is always better than cure!

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 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. 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 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.

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.

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.

They grow up fast!

Very quickly a puppy moves into adolescence and starting the basic foundation puppy training early, is essential for all breeds. Your puppy is never too young to start their foundation training. We will help you grow into the best they can be and have fun while you're doing it.

Puppy socialisation

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 life 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, Children in all shapes and sizes
  • Groups of Children
  • Other Puppies and Dogs

  • House noises - washing machine, Vacuum cleaner, doorbell, letterbox etc.
  • Vehicles - bikes, motorbikes, cars, vans, busses
  • and a lot more!

When to start?

A good breeder will have ensured this has already begun. Once in their new home, it is down to you their new family to continue this vital phase.

There are critical life stages that puppies pass through as they head towards adolescence and adulthood. Putting in the work now and getting these stages correctly, will significantly help your puppy develop into a well rounded and confident adult dog.
