Tamaruke's are Easy to Train

Tamaruke's are Easy to Train

We have selectively bred all of our Tamarukes to the highest standards for more than 25 years, ensuring all our Tamaruke puppies will be gentle and friendly, playful and happy and intelligent. These character traits also mean that unlike many other breeds, Tamaruke’s are very easy to train.

Your Tamaruke puppy begins its training as soon as possible at Tamaruke, well before you take it home. We expose your puppy to as many sights, smells and sounds as possible during this crucial early socialisation period, helping them to adjust more easily to any new environment or new experiences they will encounter out in the wider world.

We also get a head start on toilet training by ensuring your puppy is already accustomed to “toileting” on grass before you take them home. This training method has been very successful, with almost all of our families having no issues with toilet training their puppies.

Your Tamaruke puppy also comes with its own guide for training, feeding and general care. And whether you’re welcoming a companion puppy, a Guardian puppy, or a therapy or assistance dog into your life, at Tamaruke we provide you with advice and support for the life of your dog.

How do I train my Tamaruke?

As the saying goes. “a well-trained dog is a happy dog” and luckily Tamaruke puppies respond particularly well to training from a very young age.

Puppy school or obedience training classes.

These classes are a great place to let your puppy safely socialise with other dogs and meet other local dog owners with similar-age puppies. Obedience classes are run by a professional trainer who will not only help you teach your puppy the basics, but they’ll also provide you with tips and tricks you can use at home.

Exercise.

Regular exercise keeps your dog mentally and physically stimulated, provides plenty of opportunity for sniffing and meeting other people and dogs, as well as preventing boredom. Whether you take your dog to an off-leash park or simply go for a walk, regular exercise is crucial for the mental and physical health of your dog and it also provides you with a great opportunity to train your dog in important commands such as fetch, come, drop the ball, leave it, and stay, as well as how to loose-lead walk.

Activity toys.

Because Tamarukes are naturally intelligent, they really benefit from mental stimulation as well as physical stimulation.

You can play hide and seek with a toy or a ball or choose from a number of dog toys that will provide a treat when your puppy figures out how to work them.

Toilet training.

We begin toilet training your puppy before they come home to live with you and we also provide information on toilet training in our information guide. If you need any further help ask your local professional trainer during puppy school or contact us.

Crate training.

If you live overseas we can ship your dog to you and we will begin crate training your Tamaruke for you at 6-7 weeks of age to minimise any stress during transportation.
