These behaviors require your committed follow-through when your puppy is returned to live with you.  You will receive extensive instructions on how to carry this out & you will have our assistance should your puppy need help making the transition into your home.  Keep in mind that, while a puppy's impulsiveness cannot be completely trained out of him, he will be given a solid foundation for you to help him build upon as he matures.
