After nearly a decade of walking dogs, we've learnt a thing or two. Eglinton Dog Walker, along with Puppy Basics has developed a puppy training program that is meant to be an easy to follow, practical approach to training young dogs. We cover the basics of puppy training and some of the common issues that arise during adolescence.
Puppy Training includes the very basics of sit, stay, come, lay down, all while working on the more complicated on-leash walking skills (heal, no pulling). Additionally we will address re-call commands (calling your dog back when they are off-leash). Assistance with potty training and crate training. Working to stop or prevent bad habits such as jumping up on people, counter surfing, in-home accidents, chewing, nipping, and barking. We offer lots of assistance with good socialization skills such as playing nice with other dogs and appropriate greetings. Lastly, we assist with informing owners on how to identify body language of other dogs to help keep their dog safe and assisting with the many other questions and concerns new dog owners often have.
