puppy and young dog training

What can your puppy learn?

There’s so much to teach your new puppy, it can feel overwhelming!
The key difference with 1;1 training is that we can train your puppy in ‘real life‘ situations –  for example at your home, a local park or even on a country walk.  So, if you’d like to teach your puppy to settle while you eat dinner – we can.  If you’d like to practise recall or lead walking amid distractions at your local park – we can.  Each session is tailored to your puppy’s needs.  Think of it like having a Private Tutor – you and your puppy will enjoy 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, ‘leaving that thing’ alone 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.
