Puppy Training at Puptown Dallas TX

Puptown Dallas TX offers puppy training to provide you and your puppy the best possible start. If you have a puppy less than 6 months old, we have the most comprehensive foundation training program in Dallas. Your skillfully trained dog will be the envy of all your friends and family!

How old must my puppy be before I begin teaching him or her? The most frequent question we get is this one; our response: “it’s never too early.” Your puppy’s training will begin on the day he or she is born. A reputable breeder will have begun crate training, housebreaking, and socialization with other animals from birth.

But you can’t teach a puppy the basics, like sit and heel, can you? Wrong! Our trainers begin obedience training with their own pups at the age of 8 weeks, and all of the sessions are conducted without the use of a leash.

After your puppy has had their second round of vaccines, often between 9 and 12 weeks of age, they will be ready to begin training with us.

What is Our

Puppy Training Stay & Learn Program

Program Cost: $2299 for 2 weeks

The program consists of two weeks of boarding and training, two follow up lessons, and one professionally trained puppy. The foundation for a well-behaved adult dog is laid in this program.

We’ve broken down the process of training your puppy into 4 distinct phases so that he or she grows up to be a model canine citizen. These categories cover socialization & confidence building, grooming manners, house manners, and obedience.

Is it beneficial to begin puppy training at such an early age? Yes! Yes! and YES! The term “imprinting age” describes a developmental stage that occurs in all dogs. During this stage, your puppy will form habits and acquire knowledge that will remain with it forever. We will work with your puppy to teach him or her basic commands like “sit,” “down,” “heel,” “come,” “climb,” as well as socialization, house manners, and other important life skills. If you provide us more details, we can create a plan that will work for you and your new puppy.

1) House Manners

House manners is our first objective with your pup. We want our pups to be well-behaved and friendly at home, without any signs of mischief and naughtiness. The pups need to learn to remain quiet within the home as part of their house training. A part of this is teaching your pups not to run around inside your home or play rough. Teaching our dogs proper house manners means making sure they don’t chew up the furniture, run out the door, jump on visitors, take food from the table or garbage, nibble, gnaw, or bite us on the fingers or toes. We must also train our dogs to potty outside and not on our lovely carpet.

2) Obedience

The second part of our puppy training program focuses on obedience. We begin crucial basic training exercises to shape your puppy into the dog you’ve always dreamed of. In addition to the mentioned behaviors above, we also cover the following commands:


    • Leash Walking – We’ll begin by training your puppy to walk and not pull on a leash and to pay attention to YOU even when there are plenty of distracting things happening around you.
    • Name Recognition – We’ll start training your puppy to come when called and to look at you when they hear their name.
    • Sit/Stay and Down/Stay – When we ask our puppy to sit/stay or down/stay, we expect obedience the first time we say it. We do not teach a standard stay command but rather a “release marker” that signals when the dog may let go. So if we ask our dogs to lie down, they should do so until we provide the release marker, regardless of whether or not there are other dogs or people present.
    • Climb Command – Our climb command is a fantastic means of providing our dog with a secure place when we are in the kitchen preparing food or entertaining visitors, and it also serves as a simple method to engage our dog in constructive activity throughout the day.
    • Quiet – Our quiet command directs our dogs when it’s time for them to stop barking or whining.
    • Leave it/Drop it – A useful command for when our pups want to eat something they shouldn’t, like a stick or a pebble.
    • Wait – We teach our dogs the “wait” command so they won’t run out the door, the vehicle window, or the kennel as soon as we open it. It warns them to hold off until we give the signal that it’s time for your pup to join us.

Puppies, as well as adult dogs, are taught the “yes” and “no” commands and the “release” marker.

3) Socialization & Confidence Building

Socialization & confidence building is the third component of our program. Our pups learn how to interact positively and appropriately with other dogs as part of their socialization training. Training our pups to recognize when an older dog is not interested in playing with them or is asking them to leave them alone is an important part of socialization. Puppies are exposed to a wide range of surfaces and stimuli during their early socialization with us, including pools, slippery tiles, inflatables, bicycles, and more. We also interact with a wide range of animals, from horses and deer to goats and cats to squirrels.

Another important aspect of puppy training that we cover is instilling self-confidence. Our young pups are given special attention to help them feel secure around loud sounds. Sparklers, gunshots, and the clanging of a pot on the kitchen floor all fall into this category. We can help our dogs overcome their fears and anxieties by training them to solve problems independently. A young puppy’s lack of experience and confidence may make even a seemingly harmless situation, like a pool full of empty water bottles, seem terrifying. However, by helping the puppy overcome this anxiety, you’ll be giving it a leg up on life in the long run.

4) Handling Manners

Proper handling is the focus of our fifth phase of puppy training. Grooming time with our owners should be a positive experience for our pups, not a struggled task. Puppies learn to calm down and enjoy being held by groomers or you instead of trying to escape. When our pups are getting their claws cut and ears cleaned one, we train them to remain calm. We teach our pups how to be calm throughout eye and teeth examinations. As a last step, we train our pups to remain motionless during bath time. That means you can’t get out of the tub by clawing at the side or by disturbing the water and soaking us. We just tell the dog to “shake it off,” at the end of the bath time and which will let your pup know that it’s okay.
