When and how should I start training my puppy?

Quand et comment dois-je commencer à entraîner mon chiot ?

The training of the puppy begins from birth. His mother dog will teach him lots of things, his breeder will also have the opportunity to start training. On your side, training your puppy must begin as soon as he arrives in his new home. This is a crucial stage in his development since it is at this moment that he forms the foundations of his personality. The animal always begins its education with its mother and it is its humans who come to take over. Be careful, a young puppy must have the concentration capacity of a human baby! That is to say, a very limited attention span. We therefore favor short training periods of 5 to 10 minutes, but several times a day. Be careful not to overtrain, as overtraining can be seen negatively in the dog's eyes.

You can start training with basic commands like “sit”, “down”, “come” as well as potty training and socialization. We promote positive reinforcement training. Reward good behavior with treats, praise, attention, cuddles, or even play.
