Puppy And Dog Training Advice For All Dog Owners
Having a new puppy home is an thrilling time for you, and the puppy as well. It will have all of the attention, and they will surely know it. All associates of the rightty, and anybody that visits will gravitate to it instantly. But just as a kid needs to be educated, you have to prepare a puppy so that he or she will know what is expected of them. In this article we have some puppy training tips, hopefully you will find them useful.
Puppy training does not have to be a chore, but it does require endurance and repeated application. As the puppy runs around and explores, it is no doubt going to stop and drop whenever the need arises. So going to the restroom in the proper place is probably the first thing that you’ll want to prepare a puppy to do.
Be sure to make use of voice in all elements of practiceing; use a sure tone in praising the puppy, and another tone when you are not happy with your Small friend. Consistency is the key here, and positive reinforcement works best when training a puppy. They will quickly learn the difference involving the ‘happy’ voice and the ‘bad’ voice. Just like children, a puppy learns by repetition, so utilize that in practiceing a puppy as well.
Use the same door to go in and out of the property, and keep treats handy, so you can use your praise voice and give the puppy a treat when they void in the appropriate location. Play with your puppy inside the suitablety for a bit, take them outside until they void, praise and treat the puppy and bring them back in.
When they do have accidents in the property (and they will), use the unhappy voice, and take the puppy outside until eventually they void yet again. don’t forget to praise and treat them before delivering them back in. It won’t be long before they realize that outdoors is the appropriate place to do their ‘business’.
Using the methods of usings treats and positive reinforcement can be used in other training also. If you want to prepare a puppy to sit for instance, kneel in front of the ranking puppy and say ‘sit’. Of program they are not going to do it at first, so gently press their hindquarters down as you repeat the sit command. Once they are in the seated position, praise and reward the puppy as before. And don’t forget touch, petting and hugging the puppy must be a part of praising them. Make a big fuss when the Tiny guy (or girl) does as they should.
Keep in mind time to a puppy and time to you are quite different. So keep your training sessions short, and stick with one thing till they learn it before you move on. Also practiceing a puppy when they are otherwise preoccupied with taking part in is not going to be too successful. Keep an eye out for the puppy doing a behavior that you have not started to teach them yet, and reward them for doing it.
For illustration, if you want to practice your puppy to bark when they hear noise at the door, be prepared to treat and praise them when they do it on their own. The praise and reward combination are important, because you will want them to respond to audible praise rather than food treats all the time. You don’t want to end up with a well-trained, but overweight puppy!
