"We feel the touchpad is one of the most useful, if not the most useful behavior we can teach our dogs. For many of us, formal training begins with the touchpad. It has many practical aspects that are easy to transition into real life, as well as a multitude of uses with helping to create and maintain some of our other obedience behaviors."

-Ed Frawley-  Leerburg


Payson Dog Training recommends that puppies be kept from areas where they can be inadvertently exposed to disease. This includes public parks and other such areas with unknown potential for disease transmission until the vaccination protocol has been completed. This is especially important for avoidance of parvo virus. 


When should my puppy begin  training?


Puppies may be started in training at 4 months (16 weeks,) or after the last shots have been given.
