Puppy Training

Virtual Training

The early weeks of a puppy’s development are critical to long-term good manners and polite social behavior. Start housebreaking, limit puppy -biting and other nuisance behavior. Teach your puppy to calmly accept being in a crate and sleep through the night. Plus so much more...

No one to play with? No problem! He will always make up his own game. 😂
Loki is helping create homework assignments for my virtual ecollar training class. 

We are off to a good start reviewing the basics of collar fit, finding a level and starting ecollar conditioning.  The foundation is set so that dogs learn a positive and confident response to stimulation. 

Next week, understanding the three actions necessary if you want to apply ecollar training to a variety of behaviors beyond just the recall. Plus, how it translates into behavioral applications.
