We strongly recommend puppy school for all puppies whether or not you have owned a dog before. Each puppy is unique and deserves the best chance to become a cherished member of your family. There are several excellent training facilities in the area. Puppytails is run by Sue Woodworth (www.puppytails.ca) in Orangeville and Tamsu is run by John Mairs out near Tottenham (905-936-4661). Both are trainers with years of experience and can help you with any behaviour issues. For those inclined to travel south, check out www.wolfmank9obedience.com.
