Eden’s American Hazel

Finding a healthy, happy dog is the beginning. First you select the right breed for you, then you find a fantastic breeder, then you select your perfect best friend. After that it is all up to you. Even the adult shelter dog with a myriad of problems can be trained to be the best he can be!

Here you will find a growing collection of training articles written by me.

Training Logs

Soon I will be posting little updates about the puppies that I am training here. I am usually training someone, whether it is a new potential candidate for our breeding program or one of the puppies we just delivered and raised. I love puppy training with all its ups and downs and even with the frustrations that can come along with it. It is so much fun to get to know each individual baby and watch them discover the world and learn to communicate effectively with humans. I love watching their successes! It makes each night of interrupted sleep worth the effort!
