How to Train a Difficult Puppy !

Have a puppy? Yes, we train puppies that are a challenge. If your dog has a hard time with other dogs or people this is the place for you. Maybe your pup is fearful, shy or aggressive? Maybe they are so energetic that they can’t go anywhere without pulling on the lead? Leash pulling is often associated with dog reactivity, aggression and anxiety. Here are Just a few examples of what we cover:

  • How to prepare for a new puppy
  • What about the other dogs in your home?
  • Where do we start with training?
  • Should you punish a Puppy?
  • Puppy behavior training
  • K9 obedience training

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 great relationship between you and your pup. The majority of this is accomplished by improving understanding and communication. As we discover your puppies talents and skills we use those to build confidence and self reliance. A few of the things you can avoid or improve with proper canine behavior training.

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 confidence training
  • Puppy socialization

And a lot more. As an example,

Puppy Socialization, or Lack of Social Skill?

Dog social Skills

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 dogs should be highly social 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.

Is Your Puppy a Behavior Challenge?

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.

All dogs are individules

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.
