Puppies go through their critical development period for learning and socializing between 8 and 16 weeks of age. It is ideal that a puppy stays with its mother prior to 8 weeks and some experts even recommend 14 to16 weeks.

A major focus of puppy owners is potty-training and creating a bond with the puppy.

Puppies that will grow up to have a serious job, like a service dog, will begin obedience training at 8 weeks of age.

Balanced Obedience dog and puppy training of Hawaii can work with young puppies to get them started off right with obedience training, housebreaking, and good manners without the use of food bribes or a shock collar.

How we train your puppy

Balanced Obedience will train your puppy with the same dog obedience services that are offered for dogs 6 months and older with either the on-leash obedience mastery, off-leash obedience mastery, or the puppy boot camp.

In addition, we offer a special puppy package that includes obedience training, house manners, housebreaking, socialization, and how to raise a happy and balanced dog.

Our puppy training will explain to you what to expect with your puppy’s mental and social development through puppyhood, adolescence, and early adulthood.

When to train your puppy?

If your puppy is great and is not exhibiting any unwanted behaviors, such as biting, barking excessively, or chewing your personal items; then you can wait until the puppy is 12 to 14 weeks of age to begin training.

If, however, your puppy is dominant and pushy and beginning to have bad habits for an adult dog; do not hesitate to begin training as early as 7 or 8 weeks of age. Dogs begin imprinting and learning social behaviors at 7 weeks of age.
