PUPPY TRAINING CLASSES

Enjoy puppyhood and grow your puppy into the well-behaved adult canine companion that you look forward to coming home to.

For Puppies Between the Ages of 8-Weeks & 16 Weeks.

If you have a puppy in your home, there may be a few behaviors that you just can’t get into, no matter how much you love your little pet baby.

When they turn 8 weeks old, your puppy will be excitable, hard to manage. However, that is all normal puppy behavior. At this stage, you need to start their "Enrichment" training.

COACHING CANINE COMPANIONS’ PUPPY ENRICHMENT TRAINING

It is important that your little furry friend starts their puppy training as soon as they turn two months old.

 

Remember that punishment doesn't work on puppies. It may give you short-term results, but it will make your puppy fear you or become aggressive in the long term.

At Coaching Canine Companies, we have certified puppy trainers who are:

  • Master Dog Training Certified
     

  • Canine First Aid Certified 
     

  • International Association of Canine Professionals Member
     

We can identify the budding problems in your puppy and help eliminate them before they become a permanent part of your puppy’s personality. We can prevent phobias in puppies, which can limit the quality of their life.

Puppy Enrichment Training

For Puppies Between the Ages of 8-Weeks & 16 Weeks.

Help your puppy overcome their initial fears of everyday human things like vacuum cleaners, staircases, and more. We’ll help you set the environment and place ground rules consistently so that your puppy have the healthy, happy life start they deserve.

Creating Puppy Companions

Our process

  • The Power of Reward
    Using positive re-enforcement methods lays at the core foundation of all puppy training. Physical punishment is just a bad idea – as has been shown by science.

 

Options:

 

  1. Verbal praise and body language

  2. Toys and play

  3. Whole food treats

  4. Body language and cuddles

 

 

  • Distract - Remove and Replace
    When your puppy is engaging in unwanted behaviors – like chewing your sox

 

  1. Distract him from the item

  2. Remove the item

  3. Replace it with one of his favorite toys

 

 

  • Behavior Shaping
    When Fido is doing anything that you like – relaxing in your lap; quietly chewing his toy; expressing curiosity… softly praise him to let him know that he is doing so wonderfully. In this way, you both grow to know and experience a true bond.

 

 

  • Understanding Cause & Effect
    All pups either want to get what they want - fun, or eliminate what they don’t want – unfun. It is a simple black and white world in the eyes of pups – there are no grey areas. Therefor, you need not over think things.

 

* Also, of particular importance is to know when you are human projections are helping or harming your pup.
