TRAINING SESSION #18 – Devil Puppies – Who Are They?
Do the risks outweigh the benefits of puppy training and socialization classes? A well-run puppy kindergarten class can definitely get puppies off to a good start. Understanding dogs’ social behavior is a crucial part of conducting a successful class. But, who is coming to class and what is being taught? Are trainers interpreting the behaviors and interactions correctly? Do they truly understand and implement proper socialization techniques? I’ve seen a massive increase in dog-dog aggression. Can puppy classes be contributing to this? If so, where have we gone wrong?
Or, is it becoming more difficult to find a good puppy? When you get a puppy, how do you know if the pup is exhibiting ‘normal’ puppy behavior or is the behavior over the top, a-social and not a good choice for your family? What could have gone wrong and what do you do?
If you've asked yourself these questions, you will be interested in tuning in!
