Start Your Puppy Early! It's important to prevent inappropriate behavior by installing good habits early. Providing structure and a do-able day-to-day schedule will help you and your puppy navigate through those tough first few months. Happy Tails believes that you can begin implementing some basic training as soon as your puppy comes home! Start the learning process early; teach your pup how to learn, and foster that solid bond!
