About

This is a handler training course, not a dog training course. It will explain how we raise and socialize our puppies. If you are looking for training on how to train a working puppy - this is not the course for you.

 

There is a difference between how we raise a working puppy vs. how pet owners raise their dogs. Working puppies are expected to look at their world through different eyes than a family pet. This course on puppy training shows owners how to raise a working puppy.

 

If you are raising a Schutzhund puppy, a police service dog puppy, a S&R puppy, a personal protection dog puppy, a puppy for competition obedience or agility - they will all benefit by making some simple changes in how they are brought up and handled.

 

This is a course that shows people how we raise working dogs here at Leerburg kennels. I have bred more working puppies than anyone I know, since 1978 over 350 litters.

 

Cindy and I have put our heads together to come up with a program that will benefit anyone interested in raising working puppies. This course allows you to benefit from our experience.

 

The key to raising a successful working puppy is to have a plan and make the best use of the time you spend with your dog.

 

TOPICS

  • Should the working pup be a house dog or a kennel dog?
  • How to manage and neutralize a working pup to training collars.
  • There is a detailed section on how we teach a working puppy that a vehicle is going to be a big part of its working career.
  • A working puppy has to learn to be neutral to other dogs. We explain the protocol in how we approach this process.
  • How we socialize, or as we say, "neutralize" our pups to strange environments.
  • One of the differences between a pet and a working puppy is that we are not as concerned with the manners of a working puppy.
  • It is very common for new trainers to over exercise their puppy. We cannot tell anyone exactly how much to exercise their pup, but we do talk about some of the guidelines that we take into consideration.
  • Medical issues and a working puppy. It's a given that a working puppy is going to be exposed to more examinations by a stranger (a vet) than the average dog. We believe that a little forethought at an early age goes a long way towards eliminating a dog getting stressed over this as an adult.
  • Recommended games and toys.
  • If you are raising a working puppy you are probably going to have a dog with a degree of drive. While this course does not show how to bring out that drive (my video Building Drive and Focus does that) - we do caution people that "JUST BECAUSE YOUR PUP CAN DO SOMETHING DOES NOT MEAN IT SHOULD DO SOMETHING".
