What to expect at 3 months

Written by: Kassie Dickson, CDBC, CPDT-KA

It's important to have fun and be consistent with your training. If you or your pup gets frustrated, it may be harder to work on that behavior later.

Your puppy is still learning all about their environment. Keep training sessions short and successful.

If you haven’t already, enroll your pup in a positive puppy socialization class.


The more you reset unwanted behavior—and reward acceptable behavior—the faster your pooch will learn!



Your pup discovers the world around them with their mouths.

It is important to teach your pup what is and what is not appropriate when it comes to their mouth, and what they can and cannot chew on.

You can redirect this by offering them age-appropriate toys, ice cubes or frozen Kong's with their favorite treat.


You will have success and you will fail.

It is important to stay consistent with your house-training schedule and not give up.

Your pup will thank you for it.


Not only will this prevent destructive behavior but this will also be a great way to house train your puppy.

"Your puppy is about to finish their initial fear period and you are still in a critical socialization period. The more positive associations you create the better and happier your pup will be!"
