Private Training or Group Dog Classes
PRIVATE TRAINING Vs. GROUP TRAINING
As a top dog trainer, I travel all over Michigan to help dog owners with their puppies and dogs. Some have recently been adopted from shelters, others have been purchased from breeders, some have been rescued off the street, and others have been in the home for awhile but they all have one thing in common--they need training.
So which is best, group puppy and dog classes or private training? Both group and private training has their advantages. I've listed them below
Benefits of Group Puppy and Dog Classes
- Socialization (key to having a healthy and happy puppy or dog)
- Learn Obedience under greater distraction
- Have fun with others while learning important skills and bonding with your dog
- Develop relationships with other owners and puppies/dogs
Benefits of Private Puppy and Dog Classes
- One on one training with you and your pup/dog
- Puppies and Dogs Learn quicker
- Break bad behaviors (barking, biting, jumping, potty training issues, separation anxiety, fear, aggression)
- Master obedience skills while building a closer bond and respect for each other
When Should Training Begin?
- The sooner the better
- Puppies can begin training at as early as 8 or 10 weeks old
- You can teach an old dog new tricks--so no dog is too old for training either
- The puppy or dog will need vaccinations before training
- As soon as you can find a good dog trainer that has worked with your type of dog and the behaviors the pup or dog is displaying
