course at a dog training school. That is a very good idea, but if you
have a puppy of six or
seven weeks old, you will have to wait untill he is about four months
old when he will be ready for the basic obedience course.
training for puppies should actually start the moment your puppy enters
and house! Normally you will want to start with puppy toilet training
or house training.
You have also come to the right place for free advice on puppy potty
training. Another aspect you will have to focus on is how to stop your

obedience training for puppies. This is where your puppy will meet and
socialise with other puppies and people. This is very important in the
life of your puppy. During his growing months your puppy will
through different phases. It is important for you to realise that and
learn about those phases. At first your puppy will follow you wherever
you go and you will be his everything. But, I'm sorry, that will not
last very long - so enjoy the first few weeks!

wandering off to explore the great wide world. And he will not come

hoof that he may chew on.
