Motley Dog Puppy Training
Our training is behavioral, based on experience and thinking. Just like nature would do it.
Our program begins with building a secure attachment between you and your pup. As we discover your puppies talents and skills we use those to build confidence and self reliance in order to avoid or improve common behavioral concerns in puppies.
This includes all the big ones:
- Separation anxiety in puppies
- Aggressive puppy
- Puppy anxiety disorders
- And of course the ever elusive, how to keep my dog from pulling on the leash?
Puppy Socialization, or Lack of Social Skill?
K9’s have their own language, social customs and social norms. While helping your dog learn to play well with others seems like the place to start? Just like people, we might need to learn a few things and work on ourselves before we join the party. It all depends on the dog in question, your dog.
The idea that all dog just love other dogs and want to be with them is a bit of a myth. Many of them would prefer to spend time with you. Simply, dogs are a lot like people some are social butterflies seeking out new people and dogs, some dogs prefer just being with their person.
What About Those Dreaded Teenage Dog Years?
Ask any parent what stage of development they dread. Those moody, emotionally driven teenagers. We have come across an interesting theory that adolescent puppies may be a lot like that teenage child you have in your home.
The most challenging time of raising a puppy is the adolescent period. Dogs become “teenagers” and seem to forget everything they have ever been taught. This period is individual to each dog, but it may begin when he’s about eight months old and continue until he’s two years old.Breanne Long Aug 22, 2016 | American Kennel Club
