Puppy Training Basics


 
  • Socialization Pointers for Training Your New Puppy
    Socialization and puppy training are of utmost importance as puppyhood is the most important and critical time in your puppy's development. What you do and do not do right now will affect your puppy's behavior forever. A properly socialized puppy is well adjusted and makes a good companion.
  • Training Your Puppy to Love, Trust and Respect You
    Just as a child needs a caring parent; an athletic team needs a coach; your puppy needs a leader and a clear social hierarchy. If you do not take up the role of leader, your dog will; and you will end up with an unruly, disobedient dog. Many people try to win their new puppy's love by letting the puppy always have its way. Buckets of affection is a wonderful thing for most puppies, but it must be tempered with respect.
  • More Puppy House Training Tips
    Establishing good habits early on in housetraining your puppy is critical. If you allow your puppy to eliminate every where and any where he wants in your home, you will end up with an adult dog who will always have a tendency to want to eliminate in your home. A truly housetrained dog will NEVER eliminate in your house unless forced to do so or because of illness or excessively long confinement. Don't expect your puppy to be reliably housetrained until she is at least 6 months old.
  • Training Your Puppy to Stop Whining, Howling and Barking
    Your puppy is howling, whining or barking for a reason. If the problem is not resolved immediately, whining can become an ingrained habit that is intensely irritating and annoying. Many a puppy will use whining, howling, and barking as a means of vocal blackmail in order to control their owners. Accustom your puppy to being left by herself, even if you are home. This will prevent separation anxiety and all the problems that accompany it.
  • Training Puppy About Chewing
    Any area that the pup has access to must be kept clear and clean. Put out of puppy's reach anything you don't want him to chew or destroy. Do not allow your puppy to have unsupervised access to 'unchewables.' Do not chase the puppy in an attempt to take something away. Instead provide puppy with her own toys and teach her how to play with them exclusively.
  • Training Puppy About Jumping
    Jumping up can be dangerous as well as annoying. Young children and elderly people can easily be toppled over and seriously injured by exuberant, friendly dogs. Start now to teach your puppy not to jump up. Even little dogs can cause problems and injury to themselves and others when they leap and jump around.
  • Training Puppy About Leash Pulling
    Do not drag your puppy. Do not yank or pull on your puppy's delicate throat and neck. Never use a choke collar on a puppy. Instead, teach your puppy to walk nicely on leash before he develops a habit of lunging and pulling on leash.
  • Training Puppy about Biting, Mouthing and Teething
    Biting and mouthing is common in a young puppy especially in play and while teething. It's up to you to teach your puppy what is acceptable and what is not. There are many other reasons your puppy will bite and you will have to take an active role in teaching him. However, before you can teach your puppy anything, there are two prerequisites that are essential. They are trust and respect.
