    • To be not easily spooked by weather situations or other sudden loud noises
    • People-friendliness: training a dog to be people-friendly and especially to enjoy the company of his/her immediate human family is the most important item in your puppy’s education.
  • 6 Months of obedience training
    • Basic Obedience training focuses on teaching fundamental commands in a structured format through positive reinforcement. The philosophy is not to correct a bad habit but instead to reinforce good behavior. The training methods develop strong and healthy social bonds between dog owner and dog by having your canine master the following basic commands step by step:
      • Sit
      • Down
      • Heel
      • Go to place
      After mastering these basics, more advanced commands are introduced:
      • Walking control
      • Heelwork
      • Distance control Watch here!
