Puppy Training 3 – 5 Months

The puppy stage, birth to five months old, is an extremely important stage of learning. A large part of this time is referred to as the imprinting stage. Basically meaning, since the puppy doesn’t know any behaviors, it’s much easier to teach them. It is up to us, as owners, to teach puppies the right, or wanted behaviors. If we don’t, the puppy will do “normal” puppy behaviors, and grow up to be a rowdy, out of control, adult dog.

What Will Your Puppy Receive From The Puppy Training?

  • No Jumping or Biting: Learning how to be calm around people and dogs.
  • Kennel Training: No whining or barking in the kennel, entering on command
  • Leash Skills: Learning communication through the leash.
  • Intro to commands: Sit, Down, Coming when Called, Place
  • Threshold Manners: No rushing out of doors or kennel
  • Increased Focus: Using mealtime for training and owner connection
  • Socialization: Proper exposure to other dogs and people
  • Confidence Building: The most important of all skills!

What Others Say

You guys did an awesome job helping us to better understand Oliver and learning how to get his behavior under control. Because of you guys we now get to enjoy our time with him. He goes everywhere with us now, we were able to enjoy our vacation and include him too. He does amazing at restaurants, stores and we get to enjoy our walks with him now. He loved going to training and he loves the staff, especially Davie!!! Thanks again for all you guys do.

So I have had my fair share of pups in my life and I’ve trained most of them on my own from learning techniques I was taught with my first German Shepherd. That being said I have a “pandemic GSD” who got mouthy with company, never bit just mouthed and barked. I also had a brand new puppy who I wanted as my service dog. The pandemic baby went through a 5 day drop off service and we have had zero issues with friends coming in the house.The service pup, I honestly just didn’t have the consistency to devote to just him (we have 6) so after some personal one on one training he went for a ten day drop off. He is the smartest most well behaved pup and has been a great service to me. I can not recommend West Tennessee K9 enough!!! I have told friends and complete strangers about them and the work that they do. My two and I miss going to training with them!

We can’t say enough good things about West TN! We started our jack at 8 weeks with in home sessions with them.. and when Jack was diagnosed with epilepsy at 15 weeks and formed a bit of fear aggression due to endless drs apts, West TN helped us navigate the training and get Jack back to feeling confident!
Jack loves Terry, Taylor & the whole crew! We would be so lost without them ❤️😊 thank you for truly caring about the pups!

Go home session was fantastic. Trainer (I'm bad w names) was patient with me and my children (mostly me) and gave us plenty of space to ask questions and voice concerns. I'm not confident in my abilities but I felt like they laid a firm foundation for me and my pup. Sitting at home now looking at my "crazy" terrier lying calmly in "place"  couldn't be happier.

I signed up for the Shadow Program so I got to see the entire staff working at the facility in addition to going on daily outings with the trainers.This place is organize, clean, structured (for the dogs), and well ran. More importantly they generally care about the animals and the owners. Talking to the owner through out the week (Terry) his entire goal is to make the lives of his client better with their pets.In the full week I was there I got to see 30 dogs. The dogs rotated between the trainers, and are trained with the same methods by all. The dogs are trained, fed, watered, receive playtime, and potty breaks on a regular basis.West TN k9 sets the bar high. It’s a place I would fully trust to send my own pets.

My lab puppy Dutton did the 4 day drop off/pick up class this week. He did great. The staff really know what they are doing. Dutton learned so much and on the last day “my” go home training session was wonderful. I learned so much from Davi! Thanks to Taylor for send me a video one afternoon when they were working with Dutton on his counter surfing issue! I will definitely be bringing him back for more training as he gets a little older. Thanks so much. Cindy Addison~

We had a wonderful experience with West Tennessee K-9! Our family dog, Kerrigan, went for the 3 week board and train program in preparation for her to become a service dog. They kept us updated on her progress daily through report cards, photographs, and videos. The "Go Home" session was excellent. We learned how to transfer the training to our home environment, and Kerrigan is thriving! Kerrigan gets so excited when we put the e-collar on her in the morning. We will definitely be returning as we continue her training as a service dog!

Loved our experience working with Chelsey to help with our dog reactivity - we did the 3 private session package, and in that short time, my pup has gotten so much better and we feel better equipped to handle him on our walks! Definitely recommend

Our pup went through the 3-week board & train at West Tennessee K9. It was easy to get him scheduled and in. They provided us with all the information we needed to feel confident in the expertise of the trainers and the safety of the facility. We absolutely loved receiving the report cards that told us about Rigby's progress and what he was working on. We were nervous we would feel so disconnected from him but we never did because of the updates. Our dog went in with pretty bad protective aggression and anxiety, and he came out a much more confident and well-behaved dog. The trainers made sure we understood all the tools so we could continue his training at home, and answered our many questions. They provided so much information and resources that I believe we'll always be able to find what we're looking for. I highly recommend this facility, and we will continue to use them for board & train when we go out of town. They are professional, thorough, communicative and friendly.
