Quick Puppy Tips

Learn about your Puppy
It stands to reason that the more you know about your puppy and dog training, the better you will be at understanding and training your beloved friend. Learn as much as you can about canine behaviors. Learn when to reinforce your puppy’s good behaviors and how to stop unwanted behaviors.
Be responsible
Be the leader for your dog, just like parents are for their children. You are the role model and "Top Dog" they watch, love, wag their tail at, and look to each day for direction, rules and encouragement. That's 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
Set rules
Inside your house, outside your house, and when you are away from your house. You will need to enforce your rules in a patient, consistent, yet assertive way for your canine friends. Puppies are social little characters, and once your puppy learns that you are in the lead position, your puppy will become much more obedient.
You should walk at least 30 to 45 minutes everyday with your puppy. All puppies need physical and mental exercise. Many canine behavior problems originate because a puppy has way too much pent up energy. Training will not overcome lack of exercise. On walks, make sure that your puppy is not in front of you. Keep your puppy to your side or behind you. This responsibly demonstrates to your puppy that you are the alpha figure and the one in charge.
Positive Reinforcement coupled with consistency for doing what is right are the two primary cornerstones of obedience training. Consistency is always rewarding your puppy's desired behaviors and never rewarding unwanted behaviors. Everyone in the house needs to treat and train your puppy the Same Way you do. Raising a puppy requires excellent management skills. The better you are at this, the faster your puppy will learn.
No Free Lunch Dog Training
Require your puppy to earn everything they want in life by giving you a "Doggie Please". It is simply a matter of giving your puppy something to do before you share food, water, toys, or affection. This way your puppy politely earns food, treats and affection. read more...
Positive reinforcement
Being positive with your dog can take many forms, but at root, it is providing incentives for good behaviors and a steadfast promise to never physically or mentally abuse or be mean to your precious canine friend for any reason. Whenever you and your Puppy are faced with a difficulty, focus on the solutions rather than on the problem. Think about the ideal solution to the obstacle or setback, rather than wasting time rehashing and reflecting on the problem. Solutions are inherently positive, whereas problems are inherently negative. The instant that you begin thinking in terms of solutions, you and your Puppy become a positive and constructive team together. Your Puppy will sense your positive disposition and both of you will be all the happier for it.
Take a beginner's obedience class.
Puppies who have a solid obedience education are a joy to live with. They respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide the proper training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality of life for them.
Love your Puppydog
Showing Love to your boy or girl builds their confidence in themselves. Always use a happy tone of voice when you call your puppydog. Always associate the word you train your puppy to come to, with something good, this way they will know that when you call them: Something Good is going to happen right next to you!
