NLFP strongly recommends every puppy attend obedience training. There is no downside to obedience training. It is a huge responsibility to train a dog and it must begin when they are puppies. Habits that appear cute as a puppy can quickly become challenges as your puppy matures into a dog. It is important to work with a certified trainer to learn commands that will follow your puppy into adulthood. For example, when your puppy is teething and chewing on whatever item is available, including a person’s hand, this can possibly become a problem for an adult dog. A certified trainer will teach you techniques that with time and consistency will ensure acceptable behavior as your dog matures. Please read Jake’s blog for great tips for raising a Cunucu.
