Columbus Puppy Training
When it comes to puppy training in Columbus, nobody does it better than our team of professional experts at Christian K-9 Academy.
Getting a new puppy is an exciting event. After all, you are introducing a new family member who will be with you for years to come. However, after the initial enthusiasm wears off, puppies can be hard work for even the most experienced of dog owners. Teaching them the fundamentals of good behavior at this stage will make your life – and theirs – far easier as you move forward together.
During their first six months, your puppy will experience some crucial developmental milestones. It is essential to make sure you take the opportunity to establish obedience behaviors and proper socialization. This will give you far greater control of your pup as they mature into an adult dog and also avoid future problem behaviors.
While we disagree with those that say, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” it’s certainly easier to do it while they’re pups. Training a dog while they are still a puppy has several benefits. Creating a solid foundation of training when they are younger instills lifelong habits in your dog, and at this age, your puppy is less likely to have developed undesirable behaviors. At Christian K-9 Academy, we can truly help to establish fundamentals in your dog that will last a lifetime.
Our popular 10 Day Board and Train puppy training program is the best way to get your dog to understand the basics and get your relationship off to a great start!
About Our Puppy Training
Our 10-Day Board & Train puppy training program in Columbus focuses on getting your dog to learn the very basics and get some social skills. Your puppy will stay with us at our facility and become a valued part of our family, as we help shape them into the dog you know they can be.
When you board your puppy with us for their training, we find that the quality of movement is better and the training is more effective when a professional works with your dog every day. Our training facility is the perfect place for our trainers to get those fundamental behaviors in place for your puppy. An added benefit of our Board and Train program is that it frees you from the time commitment demanded from private training sessions.
During our puppy training program, we will take the time to properly socialize your pup to avoid reactivity and fearfulness later in life. Your puppy will also have the opportunity to socialize with other puppies in our program.
We start our puppy training program in Columbus by using marker/clicker training to teach the behaviors, and then we proof those behaviors they learned around distractions. Additionally, throughout the training course, you and your puppy will learn the following:
- How to maintain the behaviors we taught
- How to teach new behaviors and get rid of bad ones
- Break bad habits you have as an owner
- Simple commands such as Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, Down and Place
- How to walk next to you on a leash without pulling
- How to stop jumping on people and biting/nibbling.
After your puppy has completed the training program, we will train you and teach you everything you need to know to handle your newly-trained puppy. This is an essential part of the program. And, if you experience any training problems after completing the program, we will work with you (applies to Columbus locals only) to make sure you and your puppy stay on the right track.
