Puppy Foundations 1

Foundations 1

This set of foundations forms the basis of communication with our puppies.  

One of the first behaviors we teach is a hand touch. Why? Touch:

  • creates fun interaction and is easy for your dog to learn

  • reinforces a closed mouth near hands

  • creates a positive association with hands

  • helps move your dog through space

  • works with loose leash walking to create an unstructured heel

  • functions as an alternative "come!"

  • anyone can do it

These are our first foundations:
