How the on-demand Course Works?
We can raise our puppies better. Our training mission is to help you and as many puppy parents out there to raise well-balanced dogs– because not only is your life better— your dog’s life is better.
Through this on-demand puppy manners course, join our trainer Sarah, who has trained thousands of dogs, as she gives you the information and details you need to know to support your puppy and your long-term happiness.
This course includes 2 hours of training videos to help you understand the behavior and what you can do to help them learn appropriate behaviors.
We want you to know how to address these behaviors before they become habits for your puppy. It is easier to correct or redirect a behavior than correct a habit.
Don’t forget that this program has an option that includes a 30 Minute Zoom Consultation to address questions after you have completed the training. You also have to complete a registration form in advance for this consultation.
FOR YOUR PUPPY TO GROW INTO A SUCCESSFUL DOG ITS YOUR JOB AS AN OWNER TO:
Teach them they shouldn't jump on people and things.
Teach them to settle down in their bodies and just be.
Teach them where to potty when they’re being housebroken. The time now means less time and frustration later.
Teach them appropriate behaviors and how to stop certain behaviors on cue
To teach them what you want/expect, they can’t read your mind either.
To teach your dog that mouthing and biting are never acceptable ways to interact with ANY human.
Provide your dog with a strong, but a kind leader to set them up for success within your home and family structure.
Teach your dog that being handled correctly and gently is okay. If you start enforcing this on day one, your life will be easier for years and years(especially if you have a giant breed). Your groomer and vet will thank you!
Research, your dog's breed and be ready to accept that some of the qualities of their breed are things you may never “get rid of”.
Always have realistic expectations for your dog, as well as yourself.
Understand that each and every dog is different.
Communication, fulfillment, and a meaningful life are important to your dog and essential in their training being successful and lasting.
To make sure their life is fulfilling so they can be happy. (This keeps behaviors we don’t want from developing.)
The biggest job you have is to socialize your dog correctly, and within the time frame in which they learn best. (Avoiding heartache and headaches later.)
Being a responsible pet owner means teaching and guiding your new puppy as they learn your expectations for their behavior. Training a puppy is a BIG JOB, but after the dust settles, you will thank yourself for getting through it, and your dog will too!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR
Surviving & Thriving in Puppyhood On- Demand Course
FAQ: Why would I buy a puppy class when there are so many free resources out there?
We know how frustrating and exhausting it is to have a puppy that is more than you expected, and the struggle is real! This puppy manners course makes it easier for you to follow through and stay consistent with your puppy, even when things get hard, and in return, gives you and your puppy an enjoyable and fulfilling life together!
Ultimately, we know that happy puppies become happy dogs and happy dogs create happy homes.
If there is one thing I need to do in the puppy stage, what would it be?
Socialization before four months! Your life will be so much easier if it is done correctly. Socialization is more than people and dogs–you need to take into account sights, smells, sounds, and specific people and different types of dogs-not just a free for all! Socialization should be well controlled and well thought out! We have a guide for it, so you know exactly what you need to do and how many times they need to be exposed.
My puppy came home perfect and obedient–now they are not! Why?
At 12 weeks, puppies hit their first teenage stage. Before that, they typically are well-mannered (not always) and want to do what you ask. Structure and consistency are so important throughout the dog’s life, but ESPECIALLY during the teenage stages. It’s important that you make sure they know what you expect of them and remain consistent with what you expect, you will get it and they will grow out of this stage if you work with them through it.
