Our training methods are rooted in the science of operant conditioning (positive reinforcement), classical conditioning, and Premack Principle.
We use games, toys, and treats to teach puppies good behaviors in place of less-desired behaviors. We never use physical corrections or harsh punishments of any sort. Everything is fun and encouraging for puppies.
This type of training;
This training program utilizes a training method that can train puppies as young as 6 weeks to as old as 16 years of age. The training progresses at the puppy’s pace.
The best time to start puppy training is IMMEDIATELY! Puppies as young as 6 weeks can begin the most basic of training and are at a critical stage to start bite inhibition training and housetraining. Therefore optimal time to start is as soon as you get your puppy. Young puppies are like blank slates, with no pre-developed bad habits. It’s much easier to train a fresh, new good habit, than to train out an old, established bad habit.
Although it may take a little more time and patience on the person’s part, this training can also work for adult and even senior dogs to correct already-established had habits!
We recommend that you walk your new puppy owners through the registration application, ensuring both you and your new owner sign the application, and then send the registration application in to CKC for them IMMEDIATELY.
When your puppy owner’s application is received by CKC, we will automatically send them their invitation to start the program. The sooner your new puppy owners start their puppies training, the better their training outcome will be.
