Your puppy will learn focus on you, the beginning stages of walking on a leash, how to be groomed, pet, held properly, take a treat or toy away, enjoy being pet by another person, follow you, sit and down on command, come to owner when called, and to stay with another person for a brief period of time. Your puppy will also learn to love their crate, lay quietly on a Boundary or Dog Bed. Your puppy will learn the importance of play, to be optimistic, why training is so much fun and that you are the gamemaker!
