The Puppy-Raising Challenge
Managing and training a young puppy can be exhausting, even for highly experienced dog trainers. Here are tips for taking some of the pressure off.
Iíve been a professional dog trainer for 10 years. Iíve tackled all kinds of behavior issues ranging from mild annoyances, like jumping up, to serious aggression or anxiety problems. Iíve doled out training and management advice to dog-owning families expecting babies (of the human kind), guided adopters in their selection of a puppy or adult dog, and counseled clients on what to do after their shiny new puppy finally arrives. Iíve taught group classes of various themes, including puppy kindergarten Ė so many puppy classes, Iíd heard and seen it all.
