The Puppy Clinic
A Very Special In-Home Program
Who Should Participate?
Our Puppy Clinic is for puppies between 2 and 5 months of age. This is an extremely important time in your puppy's life when good habits are easy to establish and bad habits are easily corrected.
What You Will Learn:
You will learn how to:
*Establish a relationship of mutual respect
*Head off bad habits such as jumping - hand biting - chewing - housebreaking before they become adult problems!
*Deal with problems between your children and your puppy
*Socialize your puppy so he develops into a confident adult
*Cure bad habits and teach good manners
*Walk on a leash without pulling
*Come when he or she is called
The Clinic consists of:
A private, hands-on, in-home puppy class with our professional trainer to demonstrate proper training methods. Our Trainer works with you and your puppy, in the quiet atmosphere of your own home, to perfect your training skills and give you personal advise about YOUR DOG.
Why An In-Home Puppy Clinic Rather Than "Puppy Classes"?
Puppy "training" classes may make lots of money for trainers but usually accomplish very little in the way of "training" your puppy.
Young puppies have a limited attention span and are easily distracted. They are better served by learning in the quiet atmosphere of their own home. Puppy classes usually amount to little more than "play time". We teach you all of the techniques to get you off to a good start with your puppy and we concentrate our attention on your individual dog. We believe this provides you with expert personal advise without wasting your time or money.
When Should I Start Formal Adult Training?
When your puppy is 5 months or older he or she will be ready for regular Obedience Training. Before that age your puppy can easily become frightened or confused by adult training. This will slow down his progress and damage the relationship of trust that you wish to achieve. The skills you learn in the Puppy Clinic will head off behavior problems and teach simple skills that will make your puppy controllable and well-mannered without cutting short his "puppyhood".
What Can My Dog Learn in The Future?
Establishment Dog Training, Ltd. offers 4 levels of training beyond Basic Obedience. We can teach your dog to carry your groceries, find your lost keys, run through tunnels, climb over obstacles, jump through hoops, retrieve, roll over, play dead, take a bow, obey silent signals, crawl, walk a catwalk and other fun skills. Once you have graduated from Basic Training, you may continue training to transform your dog into a "Super Dog".
