Intelligent dogs rarely want to please people whom they do not respect.
We work on foundations with puppies. Any kind of corrections too young can make a puppy scared of people. We also socialize the puppy with dogs we trust and other puppies that are in the kennel, as well as socialize them around other people and kids. (It pays to work with a family owned kennel!)
WHAT IS TAUGHT...
Puppy foundation is focused on getting good foundation work with the puppy. It's great for puppies about 4 to 5 months old. A total of 4 weeks is spent with the puppy doing crate training and impulse control. We teach the puppy how to learn, how to take food from the hand, no command, reduce jumping, sit foundation, heal foundation, and down foundation (if the dog wants to work). We also introduce the puppy to the collar and leash.
