Re: Specialist Trainer Recommendation for Adopted Puppy?

Thanks Meloncollie! I had considered name checking you since I've read some of the advice you've given before.

The puppy is List 1 Cat, and we have found a place to do the training, but we had heard about this magical trainer that does house calls that is supposed to be certified too. Worth a shot if we can find him before we start!

We are also doing the theory course, and have lovely neighbours with experience of adopted puppies who are helping us too. I will also reach out to CherryTree to cover all bases.

(and BTW, the snip will definitely come when age appropriate!)

In the meantime...

As you are evaluating training options (and keeping in mind the need to know if the puppy falls into List 1 category, or not), perhaps one of the best things you could do now inorder to do right by her is to take the NHB theory course.

The NHB Theory course is a voluntary course developed to replace the SKN. Part one is a Theory course for the owner alone, designed to acquaint you with the myriad of things you need to know to 'do right' by your dog, from health, nutrition, socialization, legal issues, etc. These are things all owners should know before your four footed friend arrives, some of which you might not easily come across elsewhere.

The theory course would be good background for you, including helping you to assess a good trainer/owner/dog relationship.

EF member CherryTree is a trainer who offers the NHB. You might contact her for more information.
