We begin handling our puppies at birth. By teaching our puppies to accept handling early, then when it is required for special care such as by the vet or groomer, then the bond of trust has already been built. The "Handling Massage Exercise" is done daily. As our puppy becomes more relaxed and trusting we then incorporate the grooming techniques into the message.
Socializing begins in our home with plenty of opportunities to interact. It is important to continue introducing them to new sights and sounds as they grow.
COMING WHEN CALLED:
Using the command “COME”, we make a game of it, calling and clapping our hands, until it is mastered.
YOU MUST CONTINUE THE TRAINING:
Please keep in mind that your puppy has just been through "Pre-School", not College! There is still is a lot of training to do. Training a Poodle puppy can be a lot of work, but the rewards are worth the effort. Continuing the training we have begun reinforces what has been taught, and helps you as the Master not to loose ground. It is much easier to establish expectations when a puppy is young instead of redirecting bad habits that are formed from a lack of training.
You can do it!!! We can help!!!
