Is puppy training seeming more and more overwhelming? You need advice! Here are a few tips you can use to get started.
Teething can be painful which is why your puppy chews on things, so always give him a choice of chew toys to keep him from getting into trouble. Immediately replace it with one of his designated chew toys. A wet frozen washcloth is great for a puppy, who has teething pain, to chew on.
Stay very consistent and persistent when starting your crate training regimen. Give the puppy consistent opportunities to relieve himself every time you let him out. Eventually, they will wait until it’s the right time to go to the bathroom.
Modify and update your dog’s training as necessary, so he remains in compliance with the rules. Some dog owners make the mistake of thinking that once training has ended, no further action is required. Like their human owners, pets truly are creatures of habit. Make sure your dog has a regular routine.
Teaching dogs to roll over can be easy, provided some treats are on hand. First, have the dog lay down. Next, hold the treat close to the floor near its head, and bring it up over the dog’s head as you place it on the other side. As the dog uses his nose to track the morsel, he will simultaneously roll his entire body over. Say the command, “roll over” when he rolls over. Put your frustration aside and he’ll be performing this trick all over the place in no time.
Daily Training Sessions
The daily training sessions with your dog should be fun. Try and develop a bond with your dog by playing with him, it will only encourage the dog to want to please you more during training. In addition to your daily training sessions, take time out for simple play. Make this uncomplicated and fun for your dog.
Acclimate your dog to the source that triggers his barking fits. It may be as simple as a sound or being in close proximity to other animals. The dog will soon learn there isn’t any need to growl or bark during such situations.
You will be doing more harm that good if you over train your puppy. You need to keep your training sessions short so that your puppy pays attention. If you push too hard, your puppy will remember it as a negative experience, and the next time you work to train him, it will be far more difficult.
