The duration of puppy obedience training can vary depending on the puppy’s age, breed, temperament, and the level of training that the owner wants to achieve. While it’s difficult to give an exact timeline for how long it will take to complete puppy obedience training, it typically takes around 6-12 months for a puppy to learn and master the basic obedience commands.

It’s important to note that puppy obedience training should be an ongoing process. Even after a puppy has learned basic commands, they still require consistent training and reinforcement to maintain good behavior. Continuing training will help ensure that the puppy retains what they have learned and continue to develop new skills.

The first step in puppy obedience training is typically socialization training. Socialization training helps puppies learn how to interact appropriately with people and other animals. This training usually starts around 8-12 weeks of age and lasts for several weeks to several months, depending on the puppy’s progress.

Once a puppy has completed socialization training, the next step is basic obedience training. Basic obedience training typically covers commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “come,” “heel,” and “down.” It usually takes around 6-12 weeks for a puppy to learn and master these basic commands. However, it’s important to note that training should be done consistently, and the puppy should be given ample time to practice the commands in different settings and situations.

After a puppy has mastered the basic obedience commands, the owner may choose to move on to more advanced obedience training. This can include commands such as “roll over,” “fetch,” or “speak.” Advanced obedience training can take several months to a year to complete, depending on the puppy’s progress and the level of training that the owner wants to achieve.

It’s important to remember that training should always be done at the puppy’s pace and with positive reinforcement methods. Every puppy is unique and will progress at their own rate. Consistency and patience are key to successful puppy obedience training.
