Puppy training is all about life phases.
During the first two weeks of life, puppies are completely dependent on their mother and only have the sense of taste and touch.
During this period sensory development continues and puppies learn about smells and sounds. Puppy teeth come in and their eyes open. They will begin to walk and make sounds and explore their surroundings.
The socialization period is the most important phase of puppy development. Most puppies are separated from their mothers and go to their new parents between 7 and 12 weeks.
Between 3-5 weeks puppies become aware of their surroundings and bond with the people around them. They will begin to learn about sounds and smells in their environment.

Force-free dog training is a fun, reward based training method which helps to build trust and reinforce the bond between owner and dog. Positive training is incredibly effective and does not have the potential to cause stress, fear and physical injury to our dogs through the application of force, pain or intimidation. Unlike humans, dogs do not understand consequences of their actions so punishment based training approaches only create fear and reactivity, lessening the bond between the pet parent and dog.
