Having a dog can be quite a pain if you don’t teach the dog to behave properly. Dogs are our greatest friends but when they exhibit there bad habits at times, it feels like you just brought a truck load of problems into your house. Therefore, it is ideal to give your dog a good training to ensure that you both could have fun and live in peace. I bet you, there habits can wear you down.
Before getting started, it is very essential to use a dog training collars in a responsible way. If you do not utilize it correctly, you could likely do harm to your household pet and this would be the real opposite of your goal.
So you’re thrilled to bits about your new little fur ball’s arrival, but there are two words you’ll need to keep in mind during his first two weeks in your home – Puppy Training. He’s a puppy and will in all probability, behave like one – chew your shoes, take a leak on your carpet, poop under the bed and leave food bits lying on the floor. Turning a blind eye to it and hoping he will behave eventually, is denial and will only result in a badly behaved adult dog that will end up in the shelter. So, buy a leash, a collar and put your best stern face on.
The first thing to remember with puppy training is that you’re dealing with well, a puppy; an emotionally overwhelming and irresistibly adorable animal that will put your stern face to the ultimate test. Also, you don’t want to dole out punishments as your puppy tends to feel insecure and disoriented in his new surrounding and needs all the love, warmth and security he can get. So a firm and simple ‘no’ to express displeasure will do.
Part of puppy training would be house and potty training. Your new puppy needs to get familiar with the house, which rooms are accessible and which ones are strictly forbidden. He also needs to know that it’s not okay to relieve himself inside the house. Puppies need a lot of naps and need to be taken out every two hours; especially after meals to relieve themselves. Within a couple of days, most puppies learn where they’re supposed to go if they want to take a leak and where to settle in when it’s bed time. And, those are two major parts of puppy training that can be easily achieved with an established routine.
Puppies need to fall into a routine – morning walks, feed time, play time, nap time; all need to happen at specific times of the day at least for the first couple of weeks if puppy training is to be successful. Once he learns to behave though, you’ll see that your efforts were not wasted.
Make sure you reward your little fur ball every time he learns what he’s taught and does the right thing. Puppies are suckers for love and affection and a little pat of approval and some cuddling is all they need to become the perfect companions we could ask for.
