Dog Profile

TRAINING

Training is at the core of any great canine. It  not only gives the dog 'a job', but it creates a great bond between owner and animal. When done correctly with love and respect, training will give both owner and dog achievable goals, purpose and a great life together.

At Crannog Working K9 we expose all our new whelps to being handled by humans from day one literally! This socialization, exploring new sounds, surfaces, children and other animals enables the puppies to grow with confidence and without fear.

Our puppies each have a training program set up for them at around 16 weeks when formal training will begin. All our prospects are put through the AKC Canine Good Citizen program and Adv Canine Good Citizen titles. During this time they are assessed to determine what their future job will be!
