    Default Best Age for Obedience School?

    Just out of curiousity when is a good age for a dog to start obedience school? Oskar is 4 months old (lol today actually) and he has his last puppy school class this saturday. He recieves his last vaccination on the weekend. Just wondering, is it better when he is a bit older or pretty much can he start obedience school as a youngster...I would appreciate your opinions, thankyou everyone

    Go straight into it. Ongoing training at this stage is important (not that you can't do it at home but it is good to have that input from trainers) as is continued socialization and exposure.

    Make sure you research the obedience club you are going to, go without Oskar and sit and watch a few of their classes, make sure their methods match up with yours.

    I agree with K&P, keep him going with the next level! in hindsight I should have done that too! lol

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Totally agree.
    I know from Murphy we had to have all his shots done before we could take him.
    So as soon as you have done that you can go.
    Just take the slip to prove your dog/pup has be done.
    It is a safe guard they have got in place and one I agree with.
    But be ready for a few I don't want to do this anymore.
    But most times they really getting a thrill out of going as they know they are going to meet other dogs.
    You will be suprised how quick they actually pick things up.

    Sweet as!! Thankyou so much, I really appreciate it. Oskar graduates from puppy school on Saturday, so once he has all of his shots it will be onto some serious learning lol. I have two semi well behaved rugrats (lol they are quite good actually, and i don't want a naughty pooch)
