Your Puppy is in its Prime Developmental Stage!
The experiences you give your puppy right now lay the building blocks for their entire life.
Puppy training is actually creating the foundation for your future dog.
Your puppy is only this age once.
Don’t waste this opportunity! Puppies are like sponges – every day they are absorbing more information about the world around them, and how to behave in it. It is your job to make sure they are absorbing the correct info!
Now is the time to build a trustworthy relationship.
What does this mean? If you want your dog to be driven to listen to you, come when you call, and be excited to work for you – you need trust! Your puppy needs to learn to trust you in order to reliably respond to your cues. And you need to trust that your puppy will do what you ask! This is all part of building a connection with your puppy.
Now is the ideal time for socialization.
At Free Spirit, we take a unique approach to socialization. The ultimate goal of socialization is to build confidence in your puppy so that they will be secure and calm in any situation or environment – with or without dogs. We want your puppy to experience the world with you so that you are building confidence in the puppy and trust in the relationship at the same time.
