Congratulations on welcoming your puppy into your family!
This is a very exciting time for you and your puppy, but also an important learning period in your puppy’s life. Early gentle training helps to prevent bad habits. Many puppy training classes won’t allow puppies to begin until they are 4 months old, but training at home needs to begin the first day your puppy arrives home!

If training is left until later bad behaviors may be reinforced and become a habit for your puppy.
