Sit. stay. roll over. speak.. When should you start teaching these tricks to your sheltie? You cant take a sheltie home from my closest breeder until it is at least 6 weeks old.. I want my sheltie to learn quickly.. Is 6 weeks too late to start? How late could you start?
You shouldn’t even have a puppy at 6 weeks. You should never take a puppy away from it’s mother and littermates until it is 8-12 weeks old. The breeder that you are going to isn’t reputable. I wouldn’t suggest buying a puppy from this person. Backyard breeders breed low quality, unhealthy, unwanted dogs. Don’t support them.
As for training, you can start as early as 8 weeks, but only for about 10-20 minutes a day, don’t do it too much. As your pup gets older, you can train for longer sessions. Shelties are a herding breed. Make sure he/she gets enough exercise. They are quick learners and they need a lot of mental stimulation.Tags: Sheltie
