Training a new puppy can be a wonderful experience, but it can also be quite challenging.
Puppy classes and parties can be detrimental to your dog's development. Overstimulation from other puppies and inconsistent training methods can lead to confusion and poor behaviour. Furthermore, unsupervised or minimally supervised puppy parties can result in negative socialisation experiences, bad habits and inappropriate play behaviours that are difficult to correct later on.
This is why at The Dog Training Company, we believe in providing personalised one-to-one training for puppies. Here are some of the reasons why we think this is the best approach:
Dedicated time with a trainer: When you choose one-to-one training for your puppy, you get the undivided attention of a professional trainer. This means that the training can be tailored to your puppy's specific needs, and you have the opportunity to ask questions about your puppy's behaviour and training requirements.
Personalised training: Every puppy is unique and has its own personality, behaviour, and training needs. One-to-one training with a professional ensures that the training is personalised to your puppy's needs, resulting in a more effective training experience and a better-behaved dog.
Consistency: One-to-one training ensures consistency in training methods, which reduces confusion and conflicting commands for your puppy. This makes it easier for them to understand what is expected of them.
Flexibility: One-to-one training is more flexible than group classes, as it allows you to schedule training sessions at a time that works best for you and your puppy. Additionally, you don't have to worry about other dogs causing disruptions or distracting your puppy.
Efficiency: One-to-one training can be more efficient than group classes. Your puppy can learn at their own pace, and the trainer can focus on specific training goals. This can lead to faster and more effective training.
In conclusion, at The Dog Training Company, we prefer to train puppies on a one-to-one basis because it provides personalised, effective, and efficient training. With dedicated time with a trainer, personalised training, consistency, flexibility, and efficiency, you can provide the best training for your puppy, resulting in a happy and well-behaved dog.
