Puppy Training

If you have just welcomed a new puppy into your house, then NOW is the critical time to get your puppy training underway. Getting started correctly from the beginning can make the difference between a future that is:

  • easy, fun, and pleasant, or
  • messy, frustrating, time consuming, expensive and difficult!

And it’s even more important given the current restrictions that we get the socialization right.

Zoom consult – simple and worked extremely well
Highly recommend Tully's services. Just used Zoom for a consult for our new puppy which was very simple and worked extremely well. Thank you Tully
If we allow bad habits to take hold (such as toilet training issues, nipping, barking, chewing, jumping and so on), then we can be setting ourselves up for years of problems.

And if we miss the “criticial socialisation period”, then we can never get it back again.  This is why the first 3-4 months of the pup’s life are so crucial.

Don’t put it off…you won’t be disappointed
Can't thank Tully enough! We decided to try the New Puppy Consult & highly recommend anyone with a new puppy to give it a go! In 1 hour Tully had stopped her from trying to get in the house, shown us how to walk her properly as she wasn't keen on the lead (now loves her walk) stopped her from jumping. I was amazed at the difference it made to our gorgeous girl in just 1 hour. Don't put it off give it a go as you won't be disappointed.
In the “New Puppy Consult” I show you how to correctly socialise your new pup (do NOT take it to the dog park, and puppy classes are NOT the answer), and how to prevent all these bad habits from starting.  If bad habits have already started, then I will show you how to effectively work on them, and how to prevent others from beginning.

You will learn how to most effectively:

  • socialise your pup
  • toilet train
  • prevent bad habits (jumping, barking, nipping, chewing, etc.)
  • cure existing bad habits
  • set rules and boundaries
  • get started on basic training

…a wonderful experience
What a wonderful experience we had with Tully and our puppy Daisy! Tully taught us in a respectful and knowledgeable way how to train our pup. Tully clearly has a wealth of experience and his strategies for the most simple commands through to more complicated tasks were spot on. We now have a delightful puppy - we couldn't have done it without him! Thank you so much Tully
The “New Puppy Consult” is a once off, 1 hour session where I come to you and get your puppy training started off on the right foot.

Remember, the longer you leave it, the less of the “critical socialisation period” you have left to work in. And also the longer time bad habits have had to start, and to strengthen.  So the sooner you get the right advice, the better the results will be!

Bad habits

A habit is much like a path through the jungle. Once a path has been cleared, it is much more likely to be used over and over again. If we want to remove an existing path, it takes years for the path to grow back over, and it will always be somewhat visible.

Habits are the same. Once they have started, they are much more difficult to remove (sometimes impossible). However, if we prevent a bad habit from ever starting, then training is simple, and our life is easy.

It is definitely possible to cure most bad habits once they have started, but there is generally much more time and effort involved. And with some habits, in some dogs, they may never be able to be eradicated 100%. The longer a habit goes on for, the more deep seated it becomes.

So remember, prevention is always better than cure!
