St Louis Puppy Training

Get Started on the Right Paw with Show Me Dog Training!

Did you recently adopt a sweet, lovable puppy only to discover they aren’t always so sweet and lovable? Like young children, young dogs need to be given boundaries and taught the household rules, and this task is much easier with an experienced training company like Show Me Dog Training by your side.

Who is this program designed for?

Our program is specially designed to handle problems commonly found in puppies aged sixteen weeks and younger. These may include separation anxiety, excessive barking/whining, housebreaking, crate training, mouthing/biting during play, and chewing on the leash. Many owners view these problems as small and insignificant, but the fact is that as the puppy grows, so do these problems. It’s best to train your dog as early as possible, to make sure their life with your family is full of love and happiness and free of stress.

The puppy program takes place in your home, as do all our programs, to ensure your puppy’s comfort level. We start with an in-home consultation, so we can observe the behavior for ourselves, and then we’ll get started on your customized puppy training program. We place you at the head of the training, teaching you everything we know along the way so the puppy bonds properly with you, the owner, rather than with the trainer. We want you to feel comfortable tackling the problems you’re currently experiencing as well as any that may crop up as your dog enters adolescence.

Training includes:

  • Crate training
  • Basic obedience training
  • Housebreaking on a structured schedule
  • Proper leash handling techniques
  • “Place training”
  • Nipping
  • Chewing
  • Recall

It all depends on your dog’s specific needs and the training goals you and your trainer set together during the consultation.

Participants of our puppy training program also receive an extra perk—if at any time during your dog’s maturation he/she develops a new behavior problem you feel you can’t handle on your own, we’ll get you back on track for NO charge. But, as with any of our training programs, our hope is that that training is so successful you’ll never need to call us again.
