Can you really train a puppy?! YES!!!
Conventional wisdom says puppies run around like crazy, have far more energy than we can ever hope to match, are bound to chew up your home, and will struggle with the concept of housebreaking. GOOD NEWS: there is a better way!
It is possible to have a well-behaved puppy
Puppy training with a professional dog trainer gives both you and your dog a great start to your relationship. Let’s face it: if you’ve accepted the idea that puppies are hopeless eating, peeing, pooping, chewing machines, the stage has been set for frustration and irritation – but it doesn’t have to be this way!
If you’re frustrated with the “puppy stage,” or if you’re about to get a puppy and you want to avoid frustration, we can help! Our puppy training program will teach you how to avoid this frustrating way of life. You’ll learn how to prevent behavior problems (big or small) before they occur, and you’ll learn how to communicate and bond with your puppy in a way they will naturally reciprocate.
What will puppy training teach us?
Puppy training programs with the professional dog trainers of Gotham Dog Training are designed to cover the following puppy issues:
- Housebreaking (it’s easier than you may know!)
- Leash manners (walking properly on a leash prevents so many issues later on)
- Basic obedience commands like sit, down, stay, place, etc.
Our puppy training programs are also designed to teach you how to PREVENT the following issues:
- Inappropriate chewing and digging
- Excessive barking
- Separation anxiety
- Aggression toward both humans and dogs
- Inappropriate greeting behaviors like jumping, humping and urination
Puppy training helps manages the challenges of puppy raising, and helps prevent behavior problems that are often inadvertently created by inappropriate, but well-meaning, puppy raising. Our puppy training programs are appropriate for puppies under 16 weeks of age. If you are interested in starting your puppy off on the right paw, give us a call at 800.649.7297, or fill out our contact form.
