Dog and Puppy Training in Chelmsford and across all of Essex
you know that like children, puppies have a period during their brain
development when they are most impressionable? This critical learning period
(also known as imprinting) is 5 years in children but for puppies it’s a mere
first 16 weeks of their life.
these 4 short months your puppy can learn more than they will in the rest of
their lives. Literally every day counts and training should start from the day
you bring your new family member home.
classes have a role to play, for example with socialisation skills; the
environment can make some pups anxious and overexcited. Also it’s likely that
dogs will be at different levels of obedience and of course being in a group
there is little time for the instructor to concentrate on individual dogs.
I firmly believe you will find it far, far easier and to train your pup, with one-2-one bespoke coaching tailored to the needs of you and your pup in his home environment.
Furthermore consistency when training is essential, so all members of your family should behave in the same way towards your pup and employ the same training methods both in and outside the house.
This can't happen in a group environment and space limitations mean that due to the size of halls many classes have to restrict the number of humans accompanying your pup.
I will show you how to teach your puppy
basic commands - sit, down, stay, leave and so on
recall - to come to you when you call, both at home and during off the lead exercise
loose lead walking - no pulling on the lead and dragging you along the street!
stop unwanted behavior - such as jumping up at people, mouthing, chewing, biting
your pup to develop into a well behaved, well balanced dog, strongly
bonded to you and your family
