A Puppy Training Camp Boulder CO Professional Trainers Run Can Be A Great Option

By Jeffrey Foster

When you first bring a new puppy home, everyone loves his engaging personality and winsome looks. It doesn't take long though for the constant barking, resistance to toilet training, and destruction of brand new shoes turns him into the family menace. Around this time, you will either decide to train the animal yourself, enroll both of you in classes, or call a puppy training camp Boulder CO canine lovers have recommended.

Puppies quickly grow into dogs, so training them early is imperative. If you're thinking about sending your pup to one of the camps in your area, you have to choose carefully. You need to find out about methods used to train the puppies, how long it takes, and how much it costs. You also want to know exactly what puppies learn in the time they are away from home and in the care of trainers.

All camps teach puppies the basics. They learn commands like coming when called, stopping and waiting, sitting, getting down, and walking on a leash without pulling at it. Your pup will learn all the doggy etiquette necessary to make him a valued member of your family and a pleasure to be around. If English is not your first language there are camps that can accommodate you by teaching commands in French, Spanish, German, Dutch, and perhaps other languages.

Other than manners, one of the primary benefits of enrolling pups in camps is socialization. Puppies are placed in groups and spend time playing, with human supervision. The young dogs learn how to behave around other canines and how to obey the humans in the group. Trainers enroll puppies that exhibit negative behaviors in drills that are specific to curbing the negative tendencies.

Camps instruct puppies in the manners they need to behave in public. When puppies are well behaved in private, that's great. Like young kids though, at some point you are going to take them out in public and test how they behave in unfamiliar places.

In camps puppies go on field trips with trainers. This gives them experience interacting with strangers, unfamiliar noises, smells, and crowds. These trips also increase the level of confidence puppies feel.

Puppies get lots of physical activity at the camps. Whatever facility you decide to go with should offer plenty of daily exercise opportunities for the canine students. There are camps where trainers put puppies through strength and cardio training routines.

There are camps that train puppies to use treadmills. This can be a great help if you are a person who works out in your home. You and your pet can get in good walks no matter what the weather is outside.

Most camps accept puppies once they reach the age of 3 months. They will accept dogs up to the age of six months in their puppy camps. Most camps do not teach young dogs any behaviors designed to protect or guard owners. Instead they concentrate on teaching puppies etiquette and obedience.
