Q. How long will I need to train my dog?

Just like with humans, Dogs learn throughout their life. They start to intensively learn from 3-12 weeks old, unfortunately this means the majority of this really early development time the puppy is with the breeder. Hopefully your breeder conducts an early enrichment program to give plenty of experience.

In general it is accepted that Pups can start socialising at about 8 weeks old in puppy classes however in the early stages we are NOT talking about obedience training, we are talking about building a bond and communication with our pup. You also need to work with the dog in different ways at different stages of his life. It is not about spending 15 minutes per day training but it is about learning to live with your dog on an every day basis.
