Puppy challenges? Collegiate Canine makes parenting a new pup easier.
That's because we specialize in early puppyhood education, and we do so for two important reasons:
Your puppy's "socialization window" is very short.
The period during which she is most open to new experiences lasts from about 4 weeks to, at most, 20 weeks of age. If your pup is taken from her mother too soon or explorations of her big wide world are limited during this time, she may grow into a dog that reacts aggressively or fearfully when encountering new situations, dogs, or people.
What you do now with your pup will affect your interactions for a lifetime.
Puppies are cute and cuddly, but they may also pose challenges: jumping on friends, nipping, whining when confined, or having frequent accidents. Practical instruction for both people and pets can mean the difference between working proactively to promote better manners and behavior early–on versus reacting out of frustration and risking a more difficult relationship between you and your dog in the years to come.
Collegiate Canine knows first–hand how crucial giving your puppy a great start in life can be. That's why we offer two training programs for dogs less than five months of age:
Whether extending your pup's comfort zone or helping you problem solve more urgent day–to– day issues, we want you to enjoy your new little dog buddy. That means having fun together in public spaces, inviting guests for worry–free dinners, and traveling to see family — all with well–behaved pet in tow. As always, feel free to call for more information or details.
