Puppy training begins the moment you bring your new puppy home. The first 16 weeks are the most critical in the development of the puppy’s life. Most K9 puppies develop up to 90% of their attitudes toward people, other animals, and their environment during this stage.
What is proper socialization?
Proper socialization is allowing a dog to experience their surroundings and occasionally allowing the dog to approach and say hi. Sights, sounds, people and places are great ways to socialize your puppy.
Why is socialization important as a puppy?
Socializing your puppy in the first 3 months of their lives help them develop confidence and shapes how they react to any type of situation.
Group Puppy Classes
At Buckeye K9, we offer a 3-week puppy training class for puppies that are 8-16 weeks old. This class is designed to teach owners how to properly socialize their puppy and also learn techniques that can help them in their puppy’s training journey. We highly recommend taking this class before you start our board-n-train program or take private lessons with us.
Please email us or sign up online with your PetExec account to register.
Current Class Schedule:
Saturday August 13th, 20th, and 27th
- Puppies age 8-16 weeks
- Must be up to date on all shots for your puppy’s age requirement. Minimum for 8 weeks old is the first round of shots and Bordetella (if vet allows).
We want to teach owners how they can influence and shape the behavior of their growing puppy. By not teaching or setting limits your puppy understands, you are possibly contributing to future behavior problems. Puppy Talk is designed to teach owners to better understand their puppy’s needs, establish effective communication, curb behavior problems, and show owners how to properly socialize their new puppy.
Puppy Talk is done in a private lesson at our facility or at your home to discuss your issues with your new puppy and offer “hands on” training with any specific problem areas you are having.
