At Doglando, technically, we refer to all dogs under the age of three as puppies. This is because dogs don’t become mature until 18 – 36 months of age, when they reach social maturity. Until then, they are rapidly moving through various phases of their development.
The function of the environment during these phases is critical to the process by which they accumulate experiences, learn, and become.
To be able to design classes that are more relevant to the natural development of dogs, we categorize dogs by age, and refer to dogs who are 8 months and older as “adults.”
You will have 3 packages to choose from. Our first 2 packages include 1 or 2 days of weekly Skill Building, plus Doglando’s online training program, which includes weekly online support from our trainers. Our third packages includes 3 days of Skill Building but no online trainings. To establish the strongest relationship with your dog, we highly recommend investing the time and energy into practicing training exercises with your dog (package 1 or 2).
What's The Doglando Game Plan For a Dog 8 months and older?
This is the learning journey your dog will take at Doglando:
