Having a puppy is like having a baby.
They run around, they cry, bark, howl, they don’t know how to eat properly or how to use a toilet, they are curious, they are full of energy, they chew on toys and maybe your shoes too. We have to understand that it is natural because they are only a baby. So, it is our responsibility to teach our four legs babies how to behave, listen and be obedient.
With patience, understanding and training, your dog will never have behaviour problems.
Dogs grow really fast, so it is a good idea to train your puppy as soon as possible because this is the time where they learn the fastest. After getting your pup to a puppy school, don’t forget to repeat the training with your pup at home as well. This helps your pup learn faster. When your pup is an adult (6 months or older), you can also take your dog to training classes such as obedience lessons.
