Online puppy training encompasses introducing your puppy to as many different situations as possible in a safe environment and always in a positive and non-threatening way. This includes various situations in the home environment (until you can get out & about)- different sights, sounds and circumstances. All of this, together with basic obedience, will prepare your puppy for things that life may throw at him once he gets out into the environment beyond his home.
When & How:
Puppy training at PawFect Pups at the moment is a 5 week live online course which we are offering via Zoom held twice a week at either 10h30 or 17h30.
10 lessons altogether.
Basic obedience is taught using positive reinforcement methods (lure and reward) - no punishment or forced training is tolerated
Basic obedience includes training recalls, loose lead walking, sit, down, stay, "leave it"
Your puppy will need to be exposed to different sounds, equipment and situations at home in the meantime
We will assist you to set up a confidence building courses to teach your puppy how to work out difficult situations and surfaces.
Matters such as house training, chewing, biting, jumping up, foods to avoid, importance of time alone, etc. will be discussed in classes. Any problems you are having with your puppy can be discussed after the lesson
You'll learn about behavioural topics such as frustration tolerance, resource guarding, separation related problems and lots more.
We encourage all family members to sit in on the Zoom lessons as your puppy lives with all of you and you all need to be on the same page
You and your pup will receive a certificate when you graduate
This course is designed for puppies aged between 2 & 5 months. This is their critical period and the best time to expose a puppy to novel stimuli. Anything a puppy is faced with that he has not been exposed to during his critical period, could be a problem for him going forward.
