Private Puppy Training in Houston
Puppies are one of the cutest and most adaptable lifeforms on the planet! Filled with exuberance, curiosity, and joy, they can fill your home with love and light.
However—without the proper preparation and knowledge of how to raise and train a puppy—they can also be pure terrors, making living with one feel like unleashing a tidal wave of stress on your daily routine.
FIRST 5 MONTHS OF RAISING A PUPPY
The good news is the first five months of your puppy’s life are usually the most challenging.
During this time, puppy biting is at its height, meaning your puppy will want to bite and chew on everything including you, and they also have no bladder or bowel control and will need to be monitored closely to avoid potty mistakes in the house.
This is why it’s important to keep to a schedule that includes a streamlined potty training strategy, basic training, wind down periods, and routine confinement to keep a puppy out of trouble.
PUPPIES NEED STRUCTURE & A ROUTINE
Luckily, training a puppy to become a well-behaved family dog is easy once you know the right steps to take.
Instituting a manageable routine that is designed to create a lot of positive associations for your puppy with basic behaviors like sit, stay, come, settling down, and spot training is the best way to set your puppy up for success for choosing polite behaviors early on.
A good behavioral management plan also teaches a puppy to spend time by themselves once they are returned to their designated confinement areas while simultaneously preventing problem behaviors from developing.

“A great dog trainer has to be able to use her knowledge and experience to quickly assess what will work in the most efficient way for each individual owner and each individual dog in each individual situation. A great dog trainer is not only exceptionally good at reading behavior, communicating with and educating all types of dogs (ages, breeds, temperaments, drives, etc.) but she must be exceptionally good at …
”Our history with Jen Delatte goes back almost eight years when as new owners of a high energy Golden Retriever puppy, we signed up for a Puppy class with Jen. Neither of us had any experience with training a dog. All we knew is that we wanted our soon-to-be “big” dog to be well-behaved and obedient. Jen was patient with us (when we clearly didn’t know what we were doing) and wonderful with Chief. She has a real gift …
“I brought my two dogs to Jen…. Max a SUPER energized and very hyperactive Miniature Schnauzer puppy and Simba, a mellow yet often defiant Yorkshire Terrier. After a few sessions, I realized that Jen has a “sixth sense” about dog behavior and how to solve problems when they occur. What I appreciate about Jen is she works well with dogs and she does not utilize a cookie-cutter approach to training dogs…
