PUPPY EARLY DEVELOPMENT

DARLING, WE'LL HAVE A PUPPY!

Dogs are cute, cuddly, funny and delightful. And, the same time, they are little monsters that chew your shoes, destroy carpets with smelly puddles and drive you and your neighbors crazy you by whining and barking. 


Here you can book training sessions and professional consultancy of the dog behaviour specialist, which were designed to help you and your little companion overcome difficulties and sharp corners, avoid the most common mistakes that can ruin your friendship, and bring up a physically and mentally healthy dog, who will become your happy bestie. During my work, I use only modern reward-based methods that have scientifically proved their effectiveness. 

The first year of a dog's life is the most important time to build a solid base of the dog's character and dog-human relationships. This difficult, but exciting time consists of several periods when a puppy is sensitive to different things. For example, there is a very specific time when dogs have to be socialized, when they start to choose a place for the toilet, when they are more sensitive to a bad experience, etc. So, starting to teach your puppy good toilet habits at the right time means that a dog will learn it on the fly, while on the other time your efforts might be ruined, and an incorrect approach even might cause later appearing issues.

 

So the right environment and training during these periods is cruicial for the upbriding your dog. I use professional yet simple guidelines to get your puppy started on a right track of becoming a well-behaved dog. After an assessment of your puppy as well as your family lifestyle, your schedule, and your environment, I will create your step-by-step development plan with specific dates. So you will be able to know when is the best time to train your puppy and when it is useless, when and how shall you socialise him or her, when to change their feeding schedule, not to forget vaccination and anti-worming dates, veterinary and zoopsychology check-ups. This schedule will be provided in google.calendar format, or might be printed out if you prefer to have a hard-copy. 

 

One-time consultancy takes 45-60 minutes and costs €70.00 including the diagnostic of puppy current state, analysing puppy's nutrition plan and development the training plan for one month. The plan will be sent to you in 3-4 working days after the meeting. As an alternative, you can opt for one of the training packages listed below.

SMART AND ACTIVE


SMART AND ACTIVE PACKAGE

 

It is known that 15 minutes of mental activity take same amout of your dog's energy as an one hour of physical training, so even hyperactive and very misbehaving dogs become more attentive and obidient. Even though this trick training looks fun and unserious, it does a big job.

 

First, it helps a dog to listen to the human and guess what s/he wants, thereby creating more bonds between each other.

 

Second, puppy's brain has to work much more intensly, hence dog becomes smarter and will learn anything else much faster.

 

Third, it helps puppies to feel their body and to control it, making them more healthy and coordinated.

 

Fourth, it is one of the best ways to calm down a puppy and direct energy in a productive way.

 

Fifth, if later you will decide to do something like freestyle or dog dance, your pup will be well prepared.

 

And, finaly, it is so much fun
