Success Story – From Knowing Nothing to Listening Well – West Farmington – Puppy Obedience

Labardoodle - West Farmington - Puppy Obedience

Four Legged Scholars LLC – West Farmington – Puppy Obedience Anne Rubin came to us with a new puppy that she recently brought to her home. She knew nothing on how to train a cute puppy. The puppy is a Labradoodle named Teddy and was just 8 weeks old. This a great time to dive into training so Anne decided that she would get started on the right foot with her puppy. She purchased twelve sessions with us in West Farmington. Puppy obedience was our main focus. I remember the first day I came, Teddy was having potty accidents almost daily. He didn’t know any commands so he was chewing on people’s socks and shoes. He also would grab Anne’s grandson’s toys and wouldn’t give them up on command. He […]

Four Legged Scholars LLC – Aurora Dog Trainer Corrina called me and expressed that she had been in tears because walking her dog was very stressful.
