What is the BEST Training for My Puppy?

One-on-one training is a great option for those looking for a more personal and tailored approach. With this method, the trainer is able to fully focus on the specific needs of your puppy and your family, ensuring that the training techniques used are effective and efficient. Your puppy will be able to learn and retain the lessons being taught by limiting distractions. Your trainer will get to know you and your puppy allowing them to do any fine tuning to techniques along the way if you encounter any speed humps and ensure socialisation is done at your puppy's pace.

On the other hand, puppy pre-school sessions are solely a group training environment that involve several puppies and their owners. These can be a fun and social experience for owners, but is this really what will nurture our puppies at such a young impressionable age. These classes can overwhelm our puppies with stressors such as collar and leash, new environment, enclosed cramped spaces with no escape, multiple other dogs and not mention the sensory overload of smells, visual, audible and tactile. With so many puppies and owners in one place, it is not only difficult for the person running the class to offer accurate advice to each individual but you and your furry friend will not be able to fully absorb and retain the training

If you're not sure which training course is right for your puppy, don't worry! That's where a Professional Trainer (Kylie Smith link to bio) comes in. They will be able to assess your puppy’s needs, your environment and lifestyle and recommend the best course of action. They can help you understand the benefits and drawbacks of each training method and guide you towards the one that will be most effective, rewarding and enjoyable for you and your puppy.

So don't stress about trying to choose the right training method or spend hours online reading conflicting advice and opinions for your new furbaby. Consult with a Professional Trainer from Elite Canine Training and Behaviour who will work with you (Link to enquiry page or puppy program page?) to find the solution that works best for you and your puppy every step of the way. Remember you only get one opportunity at the impressionable age!
