Puppy Training for Dog Owners in Brooklyn, NY
There are many things to think about when bringing home a puppy for the first time. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) says that early socialization is essential to a happy and well-adjusted puppy. We have been puppy training near you for decades and are here to guide you through every step of the training process.
The age of 3 weeks – 13 weeks is a sensitive/ critical learning period. Research shows that behaviors learned during this time frame have a tendency to stick throughout the puppy’s life more than at any other age. It is therefore critical to put your pup on the path to success and to train, educate, and socialize a puppy within this highly influential time frame.
For all of your pet behavior needs, Brooklyn Tails & Trails will be there to teach your family and your puppy all there is to know about puppy training and behavior. You can rely on us to offer the most up-to-date scientifically proven, positive reinforcement, gentle approach to start your relationship off on the right paw for the rest of your puppy’s life.
Here are just some of the many areas Brooklyn Tails & Trails will discuss and teach:
