Pre Puppy Set Up Consultations
Adore The Paw owner and operator Casey has extensive experience and a particular passion for puppy training. Adult dogs are often the reflection of how they have been raised as a puppy, and by their life experiences along the way. Casey's aim as a puppy trainer is to ensure that a puppy's life has started in the most positive way possible through training, environmental conditioning, good routines, socialisation and a safe home environment.
Puppies have a critical window for socialisation during 8 - 16 weeks and it is essential that puppy owners adequately socialise and train their puppy during this time. Everything a puppy experiences ( or doesnt experience ) will contribute in shaping them as an adult dog and how they respond to their environment. Puppy pre-school helps to build confidence, focus and a positive bond between puppies and their owners.

"Before The Paw" Pre Puppy Home Consultations :
Pre Puppy Consultations are available to help new puppy or dog owners BEFORE welcoming their new fur baby.
Leaving mum and litter mates is a big adjustment and can be overwhelming for both the puppy and its new family! . We can help you be prepared to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Having worked in Vet Clinics for a decade, Casey feels very strongly about puppy owners making informed choices, and supporting ethical and responsible breeders through education PRE purchase. Sadly there are many puppy farms and backyard breeders who do not raise puppies appropriately, and the resulting puppies can come with many behavioural and health issues. If a breeder will not allow you to meet the puppies parents, home environment and observe the litter interacting, please consider these red flags and seek professional advice.
It is equally important to select a dog breed that suits your lifestyle. Many dogs are purchased and then surrendered before they reach adult hood because the needs of their breed cant be met due to time restrictions, space, cost of upkeep etc. For example, a kelpie or labrador rarely copes in an apartment or townhouse due to their physical and mental stimulation needs. Breed choice is so important.
