Puppy Class - is that it? Dog Training in Milton

Puppy class, or private puppy training is a fantastic option to start your new addition off on the right foot, introduce them to simple obedience, start building a great bond and respect from your canine companion. However, puppy training is just that ... a start. In no way, shape or form should puppy training be the end of teaching your dog, just as in no way shape or form should grade one be the end of your childs education.

Puppies are constantly growing, changing, learning and exploring. Every day for a puppy is a learning experience and every day for puppies should be a new training opportunity. It would be disappointing to say the least, to end your puppy's "world education" at 16 -18 weeks old. Puppies need consistent, fair and clear training for an extended period of time before formal instruction should end to get the most out of your dogs training (though I believe, just like us humans, training and learning should never end) This time period going upwards of a year, and beyond with certain breeds/temperaments.

I always recommend my clients take a minimum of Basic Training after working through a Puppy Training session. It's great if everyone could add a Bootcamp or Real World type training session after Basic as well, to ensure that your puppy/dog can and will respond in real life situations.

So make sure that if you enroll in puppy training, that you continue your dogs education with basic training or beyond to get the most out of your dog's mind, to ensure that you have a good way of communicating with your dog and to keep your dog happy - a trained dog is a happy dog.

CARO Rally Obedience October 26th, at The Poodle Farm

To say I am proud would be an understatment! On October 26th two of my students competed in their very first Rally Obedience out at The Poodle Farm, in Vanessa, ON. Both did amazing and I am extremely happy with how they handled themselves. Trixie obtained two qualifying runs at the Novice Level and Theo obtained one qualifiying round at the Novice Level. Congratulations to both of you, your hard work paid off!!

Brandy also competed that weekend, and obtained her Advanced Rally Obedience title with CARO. On to Execellent!

We will be opening some Rally Obedience Classes at the Novice and Advanced level in 2015. Rally is an awesome sport, allows you to communicate with your dog throughout, and offers the opportunity to increase your dogs obedience skill levels. These classes will prepare you to compete, and give you and your dog a great goal to strive for. For more information on the upcoming classes, please contact or see the website for details.
