Can I Take The Puppy To Dog School?

Young dog owners who have not had any previous experience with a dog face a lot of challenges. Anyone who takes in a puppy as a beginner takes full advantage of the four-paw program and has no less of a responsibility than other dog owners. One of the most common questions when dealing with a puppy is: “Can I take the puppy to dog school?”

Can the Puppy Go to Dog School?

Of course, the puppy can go to dog school. But there are integrated puppy lessons at the dog schools. From the age of eight to nine weeks, puppies are suitable for the first lessons.

Lessons might sound like a lot, but it’s not. Puppies can only concentrate for about five to fifteen minutes. You can tell how long a puppy has been concentrating if, after initially participating, it starts to rage or simply bursts with ignorance, lies down on the floor, and often has to yawn or scratch itself. Then it’s really the end of the day and the puppy needs affection.

Then lie down with your puppy on the floor and pet your charge, thereby instilling trust in the little one. Lessons in a dog school can be taken up, but are actually only really interesting with a young dog.

What Does a Puppy Learn in Dog School?

Puppies are well taught the basic commands (here, sit, down, stay, off, and heel) in familiar surroundings at home. On we have numerous upbringing tips and training instructions for puppies.

At least as important is the contact your puppy has with other puppies at dog school. Playing, frolicking, and fidgeting in a pack under the supervision of a trainer is a fun and educational experience for humans too.

Those who train at home should never forget the times. Five to fifteen minutes at a time, with five minutes, usually being enough. The exercises are performed several times a day. Young dog owners notice how quickly puppies really learn. After a few days, the commands are already quite good. After a few weeks, the puppy will already be obedient to most commands.

Tip: Each command should have its own hand signal. The dog later understands this hand signal from a distance. Dogs learn best with rewards. Physical punishment and yelling, on the other hand, are counterproductive and are not part of the educational repertoire. Be sure to avoid both!

Another option for training is e-learning. Here you do not visit a dog school but get a video course. I tested the online dog training.
