Puppies between 7 and 16 weeks of age can learn simple
directions through association (classical conditioning) without leashes
or harsh training collars.
This is a critical time in your dog's life. Your
pup will believe that you are more important than the training equipment!
Establishing proper rank structure, socialization
techniques, and preventing unwanted behaviors are accomplished. This
phase is included, if applicable, in all obedience programs.
