I will be getting my dog in two weeks and was wanting to know if i should put him in obedience school or some type of training classes? Also what age do they usually start? I wasnt sure if a petsmart would be good or a private trainer. Thanks for the help.
petsmart is fine a private trainer will be more expensive though.I would start it right away so it always socialization with people and dogs.What breed is it? if its a big dog its better to teach it things before it gets big.If ou start now ou wont have to fix problems later on....which is a lot harder
they will give you tips on how to do potty training.You should go watch a couple classes and see if you like it.The cockapoo is a great dog.Very intelligent.I have one that is 5 months old.i will be taking him to petsmart.he learning clicker training right now.I think you can start when they are 8 weeks.im not sure

When i did some reading up on the cockapoo they said they were very intelligent and a good family dog. I am excited about getting him, he is chocolate brown with white on his chin and chest, he is so cute. I will call petsmart and see what they say. What is clicker training? Let me ask you this, how often will he get up in the middle of the night? Thank you for your help.
