Puppy training is Man-K9’s area of expertise, and our company boasts a team of highly qualified trainers. Our trainers are committed to giving the best training possible and have a deep appreciation for the special requirements and difficulties of developing a polite puppy.

When Can You Start Training a Puppy?

Here at Man K-9, we know that puppyhood is a crucial time for shaping your dog into a well-mannered adult. Training your pet young lays the groundwork for a lifetime of good manners and coexistence between you and your furry buddy, much like a solid foundation is essential for a sturdy building.

Private Lessons for Puppy Training

Puppies require consistent, authoritative guidance from day one. Our personalised puppy training sessions will help you navigate the first critical weeks of puppyhood. These private sessions allow you and your dog to work together with our knowledgeable trainers in a conducive learning environment. These weekly 60-minute classes will teach you how to teach your puppy respect-based commands, encourage an obedient attitude, and build a trusting relationship with your new pet. If you want your dog to be a well-behaved, happy adult, you need to put in the time and effort during the week.

Building Control and Obedience

Gaining dominance over your dog isn’t just about teaching him to obey; it’s about laying the groundwork for a long, trusting relationship. Our methods go beyond simple instructions in order to instill fear and awe in your leadership. Because of this reverence, your dog will gladly obey your directions regardless of the environment. Gaining command will allow you to firmly address problems like jumping, running away, and other undesirable behaviours.

Tailored In-Home Lessons

In-home classes are ideal if your dog’s behavioural difficulties are more severe in your own environment. These meetings are like a clinic for behavioural problems including bolting out the front door, excessive biting, and hovering. Improve your behaviour in the long-term with the help of our knowledgeable trainers. If it is difficult for you to bring your dog to our training facility or if the problems you are experiencing with your dog are limited to your property, then in-home sessions may be the best option for you.

In-Lodge Training Packages

Our in-lodge training packages are ideal for busy pet owners with high-maintenance pets who don’t have time for private classes. Our institution offers rigorous training programmes that range from one week to three weeks in length. Each dog receives individualised attention throughout training to better meet his or her specific demands. In these specialised programmes, our trainers deal with dogs between the ages of 3.5 months and 2 years.

Benefits of Training Your Puppies Early

Training a dog from puppyhood onwards calls for a serious time and energy investment. If you get a dog from Man-K9, he or she will already know how to sit, stay, come when called, and potentially even some more advanced tricks. This will allow you to devote more time and effort to developing a deep connection with your new friend. A well-trained puppy can immediately fit in with your family and routine. They are accustomed to city life, walking on a leash, and interacting with humans and other pets. When you buy a trained puppy from Man-K9, you also get special lessons to assist you and your new pet adjust to each other. This eases the adjustment period and gives you the very best start to bonding you’re your dog faster. At our local San Diego facility our trained puppies have previously been exposed to socialization, which helps them adjust to new environments and act appropriately. Positive reinforcement puppy training, off leash training, housebreaking training and even training for proper social behavior are just some of the tasks our trainers undertake with your new puppy. The dog you bring home will have been trained and evaluated for appropriate conduct, giving you confidence and peace of mind.

Your highly trained puppy can be relied upon to adhere to set routines and respond reliably to orders. You can easily control them and make sure they’re safe because you can anticipate their activities and conduct. With our help, you’ll be able to better communicate with your puppy, leading to a closer bond and more pleasant interactions.


A Lifelong Foundation

The foundation we lay with you and your dog throughout puppy training, in-home consultations, and in-lodge instruction will last a lifetime. With the proper training and care, we think any dog can realise his or her full potential. Because of this guiding principle, we have earned CGC Evaluator certification from the American Kennel Club and are now able to provide training programmes that lay a solid groundwork for obedience and other AKC-sanctioned activities.

This is the first step in your adventure with your dog. We’re here to help you develop a bond with your dog that lasts from puppyhood into adulthood and beyond via mutual trust, appreciation, and insight. Get in touch with us right away to get more information about our training programmes and start living a better, more peaceful life with your dog.
