Training a puppy takes many forms and can be undertaken on a 121 basis and/or as part of a group class.
Having trouble deciding on whether you should train your puppy at home or at classes. The answer is both.
121's are ideal whilst a puppy is too young to go out or if you have specific training needs. They are also a great way to refresh your memory on how to train a puppy.
Classes are ideal as soon as they have had their 2nd vaccinations as you have the opportunity to socialise your puppy properly and help them learn with real life distractions.
