The Muckyhound Puppy Life Skills programme is specifically designed to address the key areas of good puppy manners. In addition to general puppy life skills like sit and stay, we’ll show you how to teach your puppy focus and impulse control which are the corners stones of all good dog training.  You and your puppy will be guided step by step and learn together and the whole family can join in too. 

The course runs over 5 weeks, with daily video tutorials for 5 of the 7 days, leaving you 2 days for extra practise and training. 

The puppy life skills that you will cover are:

- Sit & Stay This behaviour will be nurtured to ensure good greeting, door and food manners  

- Eye Contact Eye contact give you a base for strong focus from your puppy 

- Lead Walking Now is the time to ensure your pup does not grow up taking you for a walk by pulling while on lead. 

- Leave it Being able to direct your pup away from things you don’t want them to eat or play with. 

- Drop Establish the ability to ask your pup to let go of something they have in their mouth without you having to run around chasing them. 

- Settle Teaching your pup to chill out on cue will ensure that you have some down time yourself, and a super behaviour to have when you have visitors and you want to sit down for a cuppa without puppy “zoomies” all over the place. 

- Recall Your puppy might stick to you like glue to begin with but when that teenage phase kicks in at around 6 months that generally changes. Your puppy will then start to explore and get so distracted that coming back to you becomes very difficult, unless you work and train on a solid, reliable recall from day one. 

- Touch This is a less known but extremely useful behaviour. When asked your pup will push its nose to the palm of your hand, giving you the opportunity to let it stand on the vets table, maintaining contact while the vet conducts the examination. It is also a brilliant way to move your pup around and to top it off it can, if trained to a high level, become your most reliable recall cue. 

- Some fun We include two great games/tricks just to ensure you remember that training is all about having fun: Middle (Peek-a-Boo) and Spin
