Puppy training schools

When is it a good time to start your dog in a school?
I want him to go to one but I guess it would be impossible as it would be a swedish school and all his commands he knows are english.
Do not want to confuse him.
He is a good dog in general, he never runs off or anything but mainly he is ignorant.
If he has his nose in something he will blank you when you shout him.

Not sure, really. I've debated whether or not to put Ein in puppy classes (he's 8 months old now). He knows his commands. He's just too smart for his own good and sometimes chooses to ignore them. It's like having a two year old in the house. The main problem is that we can't get him to stop pulling on the leash. He gets so excited when he sees people that he wants to run over and jump on them. Even the pinch collar doesn't make a difference. I just haven't decided whether or not it's worth $100 or so to try and fix it, considering he's so stubborn and I don't know if it'll work.

well my puppy pre-school teacher said that when your dog is pulling on the leash stop & get his attention with a toy or treat or something he likes then in a gentle tone of voice tell him we're going this way and turn in the other direction.so when your dog is pulling just turn around and start walking the other way.

Generally, I would say 6 months is a good time to start training. If you want to do just basics, those can be started at 4 months old.

He knows most commands it is just he is ignorant.
He can sit, stay and that but when you call him over he ignores you

4-6 months is ideal. After all vaccinations have been given.

Puppy classes are very important. I always encourage everyone i know to go to them.

I trained at home as soon as I got him, he knew sit and down by the time he was 8 weeks. He was more or less paper trained when I first saw him when I was visiting, he was 5 weeks.

As soon as he had had his vaccinations, and they had taken effect, I took him to puppy classes, more to socialise him than to train him really. I already knew how to train him.
