Everything you need to consider before choosing a in home dog training in Aurora IL

There are many different ways to train your Dog and puppy, but today we’re going to focus on in-home training. This type of training has many benefits; it’s convenient, less expensive than our Board and Training and it builds the bond between you and your pup. But there are also some things you need to take into consideration before you start training. Let’s discuss a few of those now.

The Right Time to Start Training

One factor you need to consider when deciding if in-home training is right for your puppy is their age. We generally recommended that puppies start training around 8-10 weeks old. However, this will vary depending on your pup’s individual personality and energy level.

Another thing to keep in mind is that puppies go through different stages of development during their first year, and each stage presents its own challenges (and opportunities) for training. For example, teething puppies may be more likely to mouth or chew on things they shouldn’t, so you’ll need to redirect their chewing behaviors during this stage. Starting your training early with a professional in home trainer will give you the heads up on what to expect at certain ages and how to address problematic behaviors before they occur.

Your Puppy’s Personality

Another factor to consider for starting in-home puppy training versus classes is your pup’s personality. Some pups are naturally shyer or reserved while others are outgoing and curious. Consider how your pup behaves around other people and animals; do they tend to hide behind you or bark aggressively? If your pup is more on the shy side, in-home training will be the best option because it will allow them to learn in their own environment without being overwhelmed by too many stimuli at once. The same can be said for a very outgoing and playful pup, who will have a difficult time attending group classes which can become stressful for the pet parents. Some people may think group classes are good for socialization, but group training is not the same as socialization. Socialization is when dogs interact and play, group training is distraction training and many puppies are challenged by paying attention in a group setting.

Conclusion: In-home puppy and dog training is a great option for many pup owners, it benefits both shy and energetic puppies, but it also teaches the family how to effective in communication. By taking these things into account, you can set both you and your pup up for success in the long run. Happy training!
