* A Note on Puppy Socialization

Puppy socialization is one of the most vital importances during puppyhood.  From the time your pup is 8 weeks old through the time they are about 4 months old, they are very sensitive to new experiences.  It is important that during this time puppies have positive experiences with all sorts of people, places, and things (as well as other animals) to avoid fear and aggression issues in the future and to keep your puppy well-adjusted.  Part of socialization is also making sure your puppy is learning in a way that creates a positive association with the world around them.  Friend to the Furry keeps this in mind with all puppy services

Puppy Training has many benefits:

  • A dog who is happy, friendly, well adjusted, and comfortable in the world they live in

Effectively working on your puppy problems before they become well-practiced big dog issues (even if your "big" adult dog is only 6 pounds).

Guidance for puppy parents on you how to start off on the right foot and properly communicate with your puppy for a better future together and a bond that lasts forever

  • An improved quality of life for you,your puppy, and the dog they will become
