DD 012: What they don’t tell you in puppy training classes
If you have a new puppy or you’re struggling with an older puppy, run puppy training classes or you just love dogs, then you’ll love this podcast. It’s all about a refreshing new approach to puppy training.
Taking a stand
Now a little word of warning… I’ve decided to make a splash and be just a tad controversial, so please be open-minded as you listen.
Hey, they say that in life you either fit into the current mold and go with the flow, or do something different and make a change. And I decided a long time ago that I could certainly improve the world of dog and puppy training.
So this recording should shake up the ‘puppy-school’ industry a little (who knows… maybe a lot!).
However, before we get stuck in, when it comes to raising a puppy you can’t get enough good advice… so if you want my 10 top tips to puppy training then just click the button below:DOWNLOAD: my 10 top tips to puppy training
Why Puppy School needs to change
As soon as I finished the podcast, two things happened that really made me smile. Firstly, I received a phone call from a lady enquiring about my puppy training consultations. She needed some way of controlling her new puppy and explained how she’d already attended 4 puppy classes for $120, however it hadn’t been very helpful.
Well as you can imagine, I was intrigued. “What did you learn?” I asked her very innocently.
There was a long pause, I could almost hear her thinking, then she replied (rather unsure)… “Well, they taught us about the importance of vaccinations, worming and flea treatments… Oh and we learnt how to do a sit.”
I secretly smiled to myself. I’d heard this so many times before. Then within a couple of minutes I received an email from another lady. Here are her exact words.
We have two small dogs that we adopted from the pound 4 years ago (we think they are Powder Puffs crossed with Maltese). We’ve had problems from the start that puppy training school didn’t help with.”
I stopped and thought “So this lady has endured 4 years of problems that should have been addressed when they were puppies. What are they teaching at these so-called puppy schools? More to the point, what aren’t they teaching?”
So this issue is something I feel strongly about, and why I’ve taken a certain stance on it.
As you can imagine, I was really pleased that I’d just completed this podcast; finally here’s something useful you can actually learn in your puppy training.
So what’s covered off?
Well without going into it too much, I’ve broken the podcast down into 4 topics:
Topic 1 – The problem with most puppy classes
Topic 2 – The “Secret to having an amazing puppy” training that should be taught but never is
Topic 3 – The importance of socializing and options
Topic 4 – A complete puppy training program that’s available to everyone
