The age of 8-16 weeks is one of the most influential when your puppy resembles a computer, and his/her brain is like a hard drive, ready to be imprinted. After the 16-week period, the brain processes new knowledge primarily around what’s already imprinted. For example, many dogs are thunderstorm-phobic when they never encounter a storm during this impressionable period. So the goals of Puppy PreSchool are dual: to educate owners about the importance of this imprint period and to demonstrate to owners the best ways to introduce puppies to the strange or unfamiliar, so their puppies are as well socialized as possible and ready for obedience work by the time they are around five months old.
The first rule of Puppy PreSchool is to have fun with your new furry buddy. I try to answer any puzzlers you might be struggling with — the best way to get poop out of the oriental rug, how to convince Lady to quit chewing on your arm. If you follow my advice, house-training and/or play-biting issues will soon be in the past.
And how do I know? Because I used the same techniques on Emerson as a pup— they work!
The second class covers everything from K-9 first aid to grooming — useful information for either first-time or repeat dog owners. I also show you handling, socialization and physical exercises to aid in helping you develop a lifelong bond with your new pup.
