Amazing introduction to a successful puppy.

In my excitement to bring home a new puppy, This program gave me the foundation for successfully raising a puppy that will be a great working dog and a welcomed family member.

Nice structure

The entire course it's very nice structured, with information explained and examples, makes it easy to follow and understand what it needs to say.
I got this course recommended before I can get a puppy (first time owner) and I'm more than happy to have been following it.
Thank you!

wish I knew sooner - amazing program

I was looking everywhere for a good guide for my puppy that I brought home at 10 weeks. I was on google, watching YouTube videos, instagram, etc. There was so much information everywhere, but I was recommended Puppy Culture and With Open Arms. I wish I knew about this before I even got my puppy so that I could have gone through the materials, then gone through them again once I got her. That being said, I am so grateful for every piece of information. This made my life so much easier, and my puppy seems to be thriving.

Great information

I truly appreciated this video. I ordered this video after watching puppy culture. I will be getting my new puppy in a few weeks and I wanted to make sure that I would be able to continue with the puppy culture training that my breeder has started. I will be showing the dog, therefore, I want to be ale to give the puppy good solid training early on.
I appreciated the explanations of the importance of each step. It makes the tasks ahead not quite as overwhelming. I will be reviewing the video many times as I move forward with my training. Thank you.
