Puppies have different emotional, social and physical needs than adolescent or adult dogs, and that’s why we think is important to adapt each training to each age.

There is a widespread myth that dogs can only start training after 6 months. That myth is based on a “classic” training, where the focus was only to orders, not in the education.

Then, When can we start to train my puppy?

In our Dog School for Canine Education, we have adapted classes for dogs from 3-4 months, when the puppy has the 3rd vaccine and can begin to interact with other dogs without zoonosis risks.

What we will do in the puppy classes?

Puppy classes are very dynamic, where the dog learns through positive reinforcement and play.

Our goal for the puppy is to have fun and learn at the same time. For us is very important his develop in a stable manner, for not acquire behavioral problems in the future. We also work basic orders, socialization, self-control exercises, the call, walking on a leash, habituation to firecrackers, scooters, bikes …

Classes are always with short breaks and short exercises, so the puppy finish the class wanting a bit more.

My puppy doesn’t need socialization, it already goes a lot to canine parks

Our park:

The definition of a dog park is very beautiful: bounded and safe places where dogs go to play. But the reality that we usually find in quite different: no bags, no source, feces everywhere, processionary …

We tend to think that the dog has to socialize yes or yes, the more dogs better, but always is better the quality than the quantity

In canine parks you cannot filter, and you don’t know if the next dog that enters will be sociable or not, will be educated or not, or if the owners will be responsible or not. So if your puppy is a little insecure or fearful, it’s not recommendable to take him to a park, he can have a negative experience that marks him for life.

If you have a puppy and want to educate him from the beginning, don’t hesitate, just contact us!

Adolescent dogs

We usually think that the “most difficult” phase on our dog’s behavior is the puppy one: they bite furniture, shoes, don’t control the pee… However, the phase where dogs usually show more behavioral problems is in his adolescence.

Adolescence in dogs doesn’t have an exact time, depends on the breed, size and character of the animal will be more or less pronounced. In smaller breeds, the change can be noticed from 5-6 months, while in larger races it can start at 9-10 months.

How do I know that my dog is in its adolescent phase?

Usually looks like our dog “unlearns” things, is more stubborn and seems to “challenge” us. Mosts of dog consultations about 1 year old, are due to problems in the call or obedience, especially in people who have been doing a bit the education with their dog. When the dog was puppy they didn’t have problems, and suddenly they don’t obey at all.

In addition, at this time, our dog can begin to arise conflicts with other dogs, especially with members of the same sex. They seems to have less “patience” and may be more irritable and begin to overprotect resources. If the dog is insecure or fearful, it is also possible that you notice his behavior accentuated, due in part to the hormonal imbalances they have at this time.

S.O.S I have a teen dog!

The most important is to understand our dog, know how is this phase and help him to overcome the challenges that will come

If you are already educating your dog, it is time to intensify forces, arm ourselves with patience and don’t leave it, and if you didn’t start yet, is the time to contact a professional who can help you to improve your living with your teenage dog.
