Laying the Foundation:
Pup Start Training at Habibi Bears- Puppy Montessori : Level 1
This 2-4 week unit is THE most important program, as it lays the foundation for all training to build on. Without a solid foundation, training isn’t as successful. Many lifelong behavior problems in older dogs originated during this very formative phase of a puppy's life. Rest assure, your puppy is being handled professionally through the challenging phases and stages with loving guidance!
This program was designed for new puppy owners who want to ensure their puppy doesn’t miss any of the important aspects of proper handling of puppy developmental phases. Your puppy will be going through two fear phases during this time as well as other developmental phases, and they will be professionally managed to set puppy up for success. Your puppy will have a solid working foundation on crate/pen and potty training, leash work, alone time, and household manners.
Consistency and repetition at this level is key to success. During these early weeks we establish the bond needed so puppy trusts and wants to 'work' for you! Introducing obedience without the foundation of trust can burn out the puppy. We help puppy choose calm through our three powerful rituals!
