puppy wellness: dog and puppy behavior and training

Puppy learning gets a boost from trained owners!

Puppies are animals, with instincts that often collide with our polite, cultured human sensibilities. That means they don’t automatically understand why they shouldn’t tear up our nice pillows, get into dog park scuffles, or bark all day. Training your pup properly helps you raise a well-behaved doggyBFF. We’re here to help with the information you need.
