puppy training

Post by Laura 123 on Sat Dec 12 2015, 10:29

Whats the best age to start bringing pup to training classes. Wee Bellas due her vaccination on Christmas eve and the vet told us to start introducing her to other people and animals as soon as we can. She'll ve 12 weeks by then. Is this too early for classes or should I just train her at home??

The earlier you start socializing the better

You can introduce her to people straight away and the more the better. As soon as the vaccinations have been given get Bella booked in for puppy classes. You really can't start this too soon and the more the better.

I would compliment the puppy training classes with those at home too and perhaps you might want to add in some other tricks of your own too, however, keep your home training sessions short as Bella won't really have the attention span to learn for more than 5 mins at a time at this age.

Training is a great way to mentally tire them out too Wink

They are incredibly smart Laura. In fact sometimes a little too much so you'll need to have your wits about you Laughing

I've 2 other dogs that are so stubborn!! Can't wait to get training wee Bella. Have started trying to stop her biting so every time she bites I set her down and give her a wee toy. She's picking this up so well!

Sounds like you're right on top of things. Those puppy teeth can be quiet sharp and painful Crying or Very sad

Oh that's good. Really want to do my best for the wee pet after such a bad start to her life. The wee teeth sure are sharp, like wee needles!
