Learn About Housebreaking and Crate Training
Two of the most important steps for ensuring your puppy is well-behaved in your home are housebreaking and crate training. It's important to make sure that young puppies have ample opportunities outside to eliminate, and it's also important that, as a pet owner, you learn to anticipate when your pup needs a potty break.
One of the most important things to know about crating your pet is that your crate should never be used as punishment. To keep your pet from feeling anxious, it should always feel like a safe, happy place for them. To learn more about puppy behavior, see the training document we've provided here.

"Vicki turned my Saint Bernard puppy, who may I say slept through his first puppy class, into a puppy who learned how to obey my commands and not drag me as I walked him. He had major separation anxiety when even I was inches away from him and she worked hard to correct that problem. "
