At what age do I start training my dog?

GREATER BOSTON DOG’S philosophy is “as soon as he walks into your home.” We feel that the sooner you train your dog, the easier teaching will be — while preventing a lot of problems from developing. Of course, training will be modified depending on your dog’s age.

I just got a dog, what do I do first?

How do I Housebreak or potty train my dog

I am sure that you understand the difference between housebreaking and paper training. It is almost impossible to do both. To housebreak your dog, keep it in a small area, take it out often, and let it run around your house for short periods of time after having gone ‘potty’ outside. We are opposed to hitting a dog with a newspaper or sticking its nose in its’ mess. If you are gone all day and have a puppy, see if a neighbor will help you out by taking it out for walks. If your puppy is at least four months old and not yet housebroken, contact us immediately!
