During the puppy period (up to 3,5 months) the foundations for a
stable adult dog are being laid. Unfortunately, this period can
never be ‘re-done’ or ‘earned back’: everything your puppy sees,
hears, smells, feels and experiences during this short period,
he stores to never forget. The positive or negative experiences
that your puppy gains during this period, will form him or her
into a secure, insecure or anxious dog. It goes without saying
that choosing a good breeder is very important!
this respect, the proverb "A good start is half the battle",
certainly applies. It is important to make a good start from the
beginning and work on a good relationship with your dog. Later
on, you can always fall back on the basics / fundamentals you
have been laying down in this period.
During the lessons, you will get lots of answers to the many
questions you probably will have the first days and months of
your life with the new puppy in your home.
course of 5 individual lessons and optional lessons in a small group is designed for puppies from 8 to 14 weeks. A large
part of this package is devoted to teaching your dog the basic commands and socialization. We teach the
puppy to deal with everyday things that we - in our human world
- regard as normal and which we expect our friend to be
comfortable and happy and relax with.
