FREE Puppy Seminar

Tips, Tricks, Training to Raise the Perfect PupMonthly Every 3rd Sunday from 2:00 pm-3:00 pm Puppies Should Be Easy.  (Not) Puppies like children don’t come with a handbook.  So in an effort to unravel some of the myths behind raising a good social puppy, The Dog Knowledge invites you to our upcoming free PUPPY SEMINAR to dispel myths and share our personal experience, opinions and popular research to training a puppy that will become the perfect family companion. THE CRITICAL FIRST 16 WEEKS The first weeks in a puppy’s life are critical in determining the temperament of the dog.  Just like a child, some of the puppy behaviors are inherited; determined by breed, determined by genetics.  However, many of the behaviors are learned.  If the mother is taken away too soon the puppy will not learn proper social behavior.  A good mother and a proper whelping box can teach a puppy the importance of eliminating away from where he eats and sleeps.  This will go a long way to making potty training a breeze.  If the puppy is taken away from his littermates too soon he doesn’t learn to play well with others and such lessons as bite inhibition, etc. Remember, the first 16 weeks of a puppy’s life is similar to the first 5 years of a toddler’s life.  Events that seem insignificant to you may shape your puppy’s personality for years to come.  Dogs think in pictures and a puppy has a clean slate, a blank album.  A few tips and tricks will help you fill your puppy’s mental photo album with positive images. DID YOU KNOW… that if you ring the doorbell and knock on the door every time you arrive home that your puppy will never become a “door rusher” barking his head off every time the doorbell rings? DO YOU UNDERSTAND…why your dog is potentially a threat to the postman?  The answer is simple.  Each time the postman comes to the door to deliver the mail your puppy learns quickly that if he barks he is rewarded by the postman going away.  (Little does he know that the postman goes away regardless.) As the puppy matures, he becomes bolder until maturity catches up with attitude.  And soothing your growling dog is only encouraging him to continue this behavior.  Same with a dog that is afraid of loud noises or thunder.  Soothing him encourages his...
