Value Dog Training has consulting/puppy training programs start as early as 8 weeks old. Value Dog start out with some obedience along with puppy development; such as, leash work, bonding, socialization, leadership, confidence building, object and noise desensitization and more. The earlier you start training the better, as your puppy / dog gets older your puppy / dog will less likely to have aggression, low confidence, skittishness, etc which can take much more time to correct in the long run. So, with your puppy / dog, focus on all the fundamentals along with obedience, to have a well rounded puppy / dog.

With a puppy, everything should be fun, positive, and motivating! You should also have corrective based training.  You should always end your training sessions leaving your puppy wanting more; meaning, you should never keep pushing your puppy until they lose interest in whatever you are trying to accomplish with them, always stop when they are still wanting more. This is a simple technique we use in order to build motivation and drive with your puppy. By the age of 5 months, you are left with a well socialized, highly confident, motivated, driven, problem-free, and well-trained dog that you can enjoy for the rest of your life!
