Puppy Training services with Connie’s Dog Company

Puppy Training

Pre-puppy consultations

Choosing the right type of puppy for your lifestyle and making sure you do your research at the beginning is of absolute paramount importance. It is far easier to train your new puppy right from the word go to avoid any upset. This way you will be preventing problems rather than trying to cure any unwanted behaviours.

Connie offers pre-puppy consultations which are designed to give you the tools and knowledge needed to bring your new puppy home. The aim is to have everything in place already so your new puppy can arrive into a tranquil calm environment. Our pre puppy consultation is designed to help you at the very beginning, before you have even found a breeder. Connie will cover important topics such as:

  • Breeder knowledge
  • Collection of the puppy
  • Car travel
  • The first days at home
  • Sleep routine
  • Crate training
  • Toilet training
  • Safety
  • How dogs learn
  • Nutrition
  • Children and dogs
  • Anything else that is on your list of concerns for the future.

Post Puppy Sessions

This service is designed for those owners who already have a puppy at home and want some help with basic training and puppy problem solving. This service works best as a course of hourly sessions spread out over 4-6 weeks. This is because both you and puppy may get confused with a lot of information to take in. It is best to cover fewer point in each session but ensuring that they are well understood. In these sessions Connie will cover the following:

  • How dogs learn
  • The puppies view of our world
  • Prevention of problems
  • Training techniques
  • Obedience training for puppies: sit, down, heel, stay and wait
  • Reward based training
  • Car travelling and sickness
  • Socialisation
  • House training
  • Toilet training
  • Bite inhibition
  • Chewing
