Our Approach: Puppy/dog is a commitment for the life of this animal. This animal is a companion for you and your family. Although there may be changes in your daily life with this puppy, with consistency it soon becomes habit. This animal must become a welcome and enjoyable part of your life. You need to make a bond/connection with your puppy/ dog, constantly work on that bond so that there is rapport with your puppy/dog. Always remember that they are a pack animal and as such you are the leader of the pack. There are many everyday things that we can do that subtlety show the puppy we are the leader. We will work on these as part of our training. Remember that even as the pup gets bigger and bigger, he is still a baby… with baby brains, baby attention, and baby knowledge. He doesn’t “know it” or “know better”. It is our job to teach him the rules of the game. And I’d rather praise and reward, rather than correct the pup. I am a very avid promoter of “Doing things with your dog”… Get active, train, you both can always learn something new..
