The benefits to starting formal obedience at 16-20 weeks old, versus starting at 24 week or older, are HUGE. Why? Because all the foundation obedience exercises have been ‘roughed –in’ and imprinted, for life, into the dog’s memory banks. These puppy exercises, played as games, become the foundation for formal obedience making it 100% easier on owner and their dog to succeed once solid obedience training begins.
It is FAR easier to start a well-balanced and well-educated young dog, at 4-6 months old through The FOUNDATION COURSE—Loose Leash Walking, than to wait until the young dog enters its teenage years at 6 months or older.

Depending on the young dog itself, its progress, development, maturity and the owners’ diligence in following these Puppylife Courses, determines when formal obedience training begins. The FOUNDATION COURSE—Loose Leash Walking can begin as early as 16 weeks.
