The imprinting period for a puppy is 7-16 weeks and what they learn in this time is taken with them for their life!  Tamara knows it’s important to get this right from the start, it’s in these weeks you build trust and guidance with your newest best friend  setting them up for future success!   Our Private Puppy Training sessions include but are not limited to, how to toilet train, crate train, assistance in the teething stage (those gums get sore), introduction to manners in the home and on leash, basic obedience including boundaries,  and most importantly Puppy Socialising which is best done in these 7-16 weeks ( some pups only have up to 12 weeks).  Don’t wait until your pup is too much to handle, we can teach them how to be good right from the start!

It is never too early to start training your puppy, but when it comes to puppy socialization remember you only have a very short time frame and be sure to find out the true meaning of puppy socialization!  Putting on your ‘dog hat’ with Best Friend Dog Care we assist you in dog communications, human and dog body language, learning the difference in how a dog thinks to a human.  The understanding of the true meaning of Puppy Socialization and how to socialize your best friend.  The importance of being a dog’s guiding light having them understand your cues (words and body language), knowing what is appropriate and what is not in our human dominate world.

The juvenile period is 4-6 months, you will notice things like the adult coat, more energy, becoming more mouthy as teething is uncomfortable.  Let us assist both you and your bestie in what some may call a challenging time.

The adolescence period 6-12 months, look out!  Your puppy will have even more energy, things you had taught may be forgotten with your puppy getting easily distracted exploring the environment.  This is a time to be supportive, consistent and make sure boundaries are still in place for your ever growing best friend.

The maturity period is 1-4 years of age, you will notice if you have a small- medium breed puppy their development physically will happen more quickly than a larger breed puppy.  Some dogs may be considered a puppy for up to 4 years old mentally and socially as they are all individuals.
