Tonight we started a new puppy five week course at Balwyn. Welcome to our new puppies, it was lovely meeting you all, especially your cute pups. This week we learnt:
the three stages of sit
hand in the collar
standing up straight
sit step away
Remember to practice your warning tone, praise and correction process. At the moment your puppies don't understand that this is a patters (command, reinforce, reward) - spend this week teaching the pattern.
Work on your on lead recall - using their name.
...and as much puppy socialisation as possible. Lots of puppy play - make sure your are teaching your puppy responsible play with 'stranger dogs'.
If you have any questions, or need a hand - please email me or call me throughout the week. See you next Thursday night!
