It's never too soon (or too late) to start training. We begin training puppies at 7 weeks, be it manners or foundation for competitive obedience. The earlier we teach them what we want, the less likely they are to develop behaviors we don't. Keep it simple. One step at a time, we can build a foundation that will last a lifetime. The most important lesson you can teach your puppy is that learning is fun!

This phase can start as early as 3 months and end as late as 24 months, depending on your puppy's rate of maturation. Your once sweet and attentive puppy suddenly starts  selectively listening and lacking impulse control. The adolescent may be easily distracted, test boundaries, demonstrate reactivity and/or avoidance. This is a very moldable phase, obedience is the solution. We can give your dog the tools and skill set to handle any situation. 

The adult dog can take up to 4 years to reach full maturity. A well trained adult dog is stable, confident, and equipped to remain composed under any set of curcumstances. Maturity may bring new found dominance. Aggression peaks between 2-4 years. If there are weaknesses in your foundation training, this can be  challenging for pet owners.  Rest assured, it's never too late to improve your dog's manners, behavior modification is our specialty.
