Schedule your puppy evaluation below and get you and your new canine off to a successful, positive start!
Establish a Routine: Create a consistent daily schedule for feeding, potty breaks, exercise, playtime, and sleep. Dogs thrive on routine and will learn to anticipate and follow the schedule.
Socialization: Introduce your puppy to different people, animals, and environments to help them become comfortable and confident in various situations. Arrange controlled playdates with other friendly dogs and expose them to different sights, sounds, and experiences.
House Training: Teach your puppy what they should eliminate by taking them outside frequently, especially after meals, naps, and playtime. Use a consistent command like “go potty” and reward them with praise or treats when they go to the appropriate spot. Clean up accidents indoors with an enzymatic cleaner to remove the scent.
Basic Commands: Start with simple commands like “sit,” “stay,” and “come.” Use positive reinforcement techniques to reward your dog.
