Meet me, Nicole Ellis.
I’m a certified professional dog trainer, pet lifestyle expert and mom to two amazing doodles, Maggie a poochon and Rossi a cavapoochon as well as a fat horse named Cali. Come meet us in the video below and if you want to learn more – head to our bio.
How long should you train your dog for?
Keep your sessions short – especially with a puppy. Your sessions should be about 5-15 mins then take a break, throw a ball or go for a walk. You can do multiple training sessions with your dog but it’s important these remain fun and end on a high note with something your pet understands – we want it to be fun after all.
What you need to start puppy training your dog today!

The best dog treats for training
Here are my top picks for dog treats as well as the dog training pouch I wear this always me to easily have…and not spill treats during our doodle training together.
But, there are a few other things I use every time I start training – these aren’t required but can help you get a jumpstart. I use the Klimb, pictured below, with all dogs – from doodle puppies to grown Great Danes. Putting them on an elevated surface makes training easier for both of us and helps them focus a little bit more. You can find an object around your house too, I use the Klimb due to it not slipping when the jump on it, easy to store and clean, and doesn’t get hot outside.
