This week...

We continue from our previous webinar here in discussing more specifics for clients to effectively train their puppies. Key commands we will focus on in this session include the effective training of Touch, Down and Leave It as well as mastering loose leash walking and how to manage puppy when out and about in public. We also look at the value of toys and introducing enrichment opportunities into the lives of puppies.
