Crate Training

There are many benefits to crate training a puppy, at the same time, limited arguments against it, other than those resulting from the improper introduction of a crate, using the crate for punishment and leaving a puppy in a crate for extreme lengths of time. If the crate is presented under positive circumstances, and associated with positive reinforcements, it is a wonderful tool for shaping a puppy into a well-adjusted dog; ensuring a safe puppy/dog; not to mention an aid in training and serving practical purposes. read more

My puppy, heartbeat at my feet...

Do you have a new puppy, or are you thinking of getting one? If so, puppy behaviour shaping should be the most important item on your training agenda.

This web site contains information for every stage of the process - most importantly how puppies develop, when the most rapid learning takes place and exactly what you can be doing during this time to shape the behaviour of your adult dog!

Puppy Learning & Development

A puppy’s behaviour is being shaped from the moment they are born. While a puppy’s genetics play a major role in their innate character, how they learn to adjust to their environment is, to a large extent, very much under the owner's control.

Our philosophy is that there is no single “right” way there are certainly methods that may be detrimental to the well-being of the future adult dog, but there are just as many that will produce desirable results.

We cannot stress enough that the most rapid learning for a puppy occurs during its 4th and 16th week of life (depending on breed). Therefore it is so vitally important that new puppy owners are prepared and committed to making the most of this valuable and very short window of time by incorporating behaviour shaping and training into your daily activities and routine..
