Puppy Training Programs
If you are a first time puppy owner and don’t know what to do or where to turn or if you have had puppies before, but can’t remember what it is like to have a new family member with 4 paws, then the ‘Puppy Enrichment Training” program at Ruff ‘n Tumble Playcare is the program for you. When you combine this enrichment program with our puppy playcare program you get the best of both worlds! A puppy that knows how to play and socialize appropriately with other puppies and dogs, as well as one that learns how to be happy in the world around them. The Enrichment program is specifically designed for puppies 10-20 weeks old and their owners.
The ‘Puppy Enrichment Training’ Program has been specifically designed to introduce them to learning at a young age. It has been proven that while a puppy is in this critical socialization period of their life, it is important to their development to teach them about life experiences in a fun and positive way. Socialization and enrichment is more than just introducing puppies to other dogs. While dog to dog interactions are one aspect of socialization, a puppy needs to get socialized to everything else in the world too! Cars, bikes, other people, children, men with hats, people carrying bags, pushing carts, household sounds, different flooring textures, buses, among others all provide the young puppy unique challenges. This is where we come in. Whether it is enrolling in the Puppy Enrichment Training program for your puppy or puppy daycare we are here to help!
Puppy Enrichment Training Program
The Puppy Enrichment Training program, when paired with our Puppy Playcare program is the perfect way to start your puppy off on the right paw. In our puppy program your puppy is engaged in supervised play with other puppies so that they learn the appropriate skills to play with other dogs. In the enrichment program we’ll give you the tools to help you navigate the puppy stages of development and we will work with your puppy individually on the specifics. The world can be scary for a puppy so we’ll help them learn to navigate through the development process. When you add the enrichment program to puppy playcare your pup will experience play, socialization, rest and one on one enrichment sessions with our certified in house trainer. The enrichment program is designed as an 8 session program designed to be utilized over 4 weeks. (twice a week for maximum enrichment benefits) Your puppy can be signed up for 2, 3, 4 or even 5 days of puppy playcare each week too. During the first few months of your puppies’ life they are growing and changing rapidly. Our enrichment program will help you and your pup navigate the minefields of growing up. During the program you will receive our puppy training materials, weekly progress reports, photos and bi-weekly one on one knowledge transfer session with our trainer. Your puppy participates in multiple training sessions each day on top of playing with friends. Plus, after your puppy has completed the program you have the option to go on to further training.
Puppy Training: The Purpose
The purpose of Puppy Enrichment Training is to provide you with the best process for helping puppies during their most critical period of development. If a puppy is under 5 months of age, attending daycare is not always enough to help that puppy become better adjusted. This program provides the additional ways that will help your puppy learn. Your puppy will benefit from supervised play with other puppies, plus multiple sessions during the day with our trainer. They will learn about surface training, distractions sounds and an introduction to basic manners.
