Puppy Boot Camp

Puppy Boot Camp

"Start Line"

This is a two week training course designed for puppies between 10-18 weeks old. The curriculum in this camp will be to address all of the normal puppy problems people run into. This will give our new puppy owners a quick jump start on puppy training.

These are seven bullet points we will address with this puppy training program:

  1. Crate Training: Your puppy will learn to go into the crate, be calm and quiet while in it. Also, they will learn not to rush out just because the door opens. They will learn to be invited out.
  2. House Breaking: We teach the puppy to eliminate outside, not in your home.
  3. Puppy Biting: Here we will teach your puppy what things are acceptable to bite and which things are not.
  4. Jumping on People: Your puppy will learn it's more rewarding to keep their paws on the ground, not on you.
  5. Self/Impulse Control: The 'wait' command will be taught for eating and doorways.
  6. Recall: Your puppy will learn to come to you everytime!
  7. Socializing: Meeting new people and dogs. Also being exposed to different and new environments.

First off, thanks for visiting Mannerly Canine! My goal with my weekly blogs is to give away free information to help people start off right with their dog.

We reached out to Shawn because we had a myriad of problems with acclimating a rescue dog into our home. Everything from simply getting her to defecate, letting us know (and where we wanted her to), to extremely uncontrolled hyper activity. Shawn solved all of these problems and more. It's fascinating to watch someone with such a skillset apply their knowledge and experience to your dog.
