Puppy HeadStart

 

If you don’t have time to come to our Puppy Play School or K9 Kindy courses, we can make it easier by coming to your home to help with those annoying puppy behaviours and puppy proof you home with you

Setting the Foundation

From 6-18 weeks of age are critical for setting the foundation for a happy, well-adjusted adult dog.  This is the time your puppy develops relationships and a way to communicate with both dogs and humans.  

Since puppies do not know what is right or wrong, we need to teach them everything.  They need to be taught what they can chew, where to toilet, how to behave when guests come over and where to sleep.

 

Our Aim

Is to set a foundation for a happy well-adjusted adult dog with consistency, understanding, patience and persistence in a controlled and safe environment.

The earlier you start the better the pup will learn.  It is better to teach them now what is right than have to retrain a bad behaviour. In this critical stage puppies need to be exposed to as many new experiences as possible so that they grow up with confidence.
