Should puppies start training early? Research says:

In a study published earlier this year, findings provide evidence that there are significant differences in behavior for dogs who attend training before 6 months and dogs who do not.

Dogs who attended puppy training before 6 months of age were less likely to display:


🦴Compulsive Behavior

🦴Destructive Behavior

🦴Excessive Barking

If your puppy is older than 6 months but hasn’t started training, no need to worry! It’s never too late to start, and reward-based training at any age is better than no training.
