The Top 3 Lessons Quality Puppy Training Teaches Pet Owners

by | Jan 12, 2022 | Dog Training

The importance of early socialization and training for your new puppy’s development cannot be overstated. With so many possibilities, it may be difficult for owners to find the perfect class. A professional puppy training facility will not only assist your puppy with mastering new behaviors, but will also provide you with the skills you need to help sustain those new habits and develop a lasting relationship with your pet.

Whether your goal is to prevent your dog from barking excessively, chewing on non-food objects (like dangerous houseplants or their shoes), or avoiding digging, begging, biting, stealing food, and peeing in the house, here are three lessons quality puppy training teaches pet owners.

Behaviors to Watch Out For
It’s critical to understand the difficulties you want to avoid so you can start teaching your dog positive habits straight away. A professional dog trainer can help you assess which behaviors may need modification and which behaviors can be rewarded when visiting with you during a training orientation.

Attending training orientations has several advantages. First and foremost, whether you purchase a training package or not, you will walk away with actual dog training information that you can put into action right away. This orientation should provide you with an understanding of the motives and goals underlying your pet’s behavior and how you can instill the confidence and understanding that all dog owners seek with their pets.

The Importance of Consistency
Consistency is very important when it comes to teaching your new puppy. Not only do they need to repeat commands with you, but they also need you to be consistent in your approach. This entails constantly reinforcing their teaching, even if you’re tired or busy. If you are not consistent you are not going to get the results you want. An inconsistent approach to a new behavior or commands could very well end in your puppy never quite learning what you wanted them to do.

A quality puppy training program will help your puppy build consistent and strong habits in new behaviors and commands through daily repetition and practice before passing the responsibility back to you.

Confidence in Choosing a Dog Training Program
Choosing your puppy’s training program is an important decision, and it’s not one we take lightly. Programs are matched to each puppy and family based on factors such as breed, age, past training experience, and most importantly, your goals. Meadowlake Pet Resort & Training Center provides a large variety of options to fit all your needs.

We believe training should continue throughout the life of your puppy. Just like humans, our canine companions need reminders and practice to retain their skill. Our customized training programs come with take-home exercises, informational resources, and live support from our expert team to create meaningful results that last.

We offer a Post Graduate class to our Stay & Train program graduates, providing pet parents with the opportunity to continue learning from our award-winning training team long after their pet’s program is complete. We’ll introduce additional commands, perfect the ones they’ve already learned, and use high levels of distractions to improve focus
