If you have a new puppy, read this important article before anything else.
Dog training begins with puppy class -- and it can prevent unwanted
dogs and pet homelessness.
Reward That Puppy! Inc. Dog Training is dedicated to educating new puppy owners in the Rochester, NY area, providing dog training classes along with in-home privates. The most important period of time for a puppy is from birth to 16 weeks. When a puppy is 8 weeks old,
it is the ideal time to bring the puppy home and start introducing positive reinforcement training and socialization.
"The window of opportunity for your puppy to be exposed to life experiences that will shape their
adult life ends at approximately 16 weeks. What they experience during this time can positively or negatively affect their temperament as an adult." - Ray Coppinger Ph.D. thesis in biology (at the University of Massachusetts) founding faculty at Hampshire
College, where he is a professor of biology. He teaches and does research on animal behavior, especially the behavior of canids.
