puppy and young dog training

What can your puppy learn?

There’s so much to teach your new puppy, it can feel overwhelming!
The main benefit of 1;1 training sessions is that we can train your puppy in ‘real life‘ situations –  for example at your home or even a local park.  So, if you’d like to teach your puppy to Settle while you eat dinner – we can.  If you want to train your pup to Wait rather than dashing to (or barking at) the front door – we can.  Or if you’d like to practise recall or lead walking at your local park, we can.  Each session is tailored to your puppy’s needs.  I’ll give you lots of training games so you enjoy learning with your pup and build a loving, respectful relationship.  Think of it like having a Personal Trainer – you’ll get better results, faster.

Common puppy training topics include but are not limited to:

Your well trained puppy is a joy to be around!

Your puppy will understand what’s expected of him or her and make the ‘right’ choice; whether that’s coming when you call, or walking nicely on lead.  And, you’ll learn how to ‘talk dog’!  Which means you can give your puppy clear, consistent messages and enjoy the best possible relationship together.  Please note that Joyful Dogs only use positive reinforcement training techniques.
