A Blank Canvas

Puppies arrive as a blank canvas for learning. They may have learnt a few things with the breeder but this is your chance to teach your puppy all your rules and boundaries in your home. Remember they learn so much quicker at this age. We choose for dogs to live in a human society so it is our responsibility to teach them how to do that. All your rules must be consistent. If you want you dog on your furniture that is fine just make sure they only get on when asked and get off when asked, you MUST always be in control. There must be firm CONSISTENT rules so your dog does not try to push the boundaries because they know they can get away with it.
