At All About Dogs, we believe positive reinforcement training is the best way to create a happy and confident dog who understands what is expected of him. Training should begin as soon as your new your new puppy arrives in your home.
Our “First Paw Forward” program is designed to take advantage of the young dog’s early learning and socialization period and is open to pups from 8 weeks – 14 weeks for medium/large breeds and for pups 8 weeks – 18 weeks for small breeds. We introduce the basic commands, such as sit, down, off, come when called, settle on a mat and preliminary leash walking. You will learn to avoid common puppy problem behaviours by developing your dog’s self control and ability to focus and respond to you around other dogs and people. The class routine also includes the opportunity for the puppies to socialize in a safe and controlled environment before being ready for interaction with other dogs out in the parks. Our classes are small to ensure plenty of individual attention.
