First 6 months

Basic obedience training

  • Your dog needs to learn the basic commands: sit, stay, drop, stand, heel …
  • on and off leash obedience – we encourage handlers to visit a dog obedience club or puppy preschool if possible

Environmental stability training

  • navigating various challenges: malls, parks, classrooms, community centres

Upon completion of this initial period, the ‘family phase’ proceeds where the trainer schools the prospective family in how to interact and communicate with the new family member. This usually takes about a week.
