Teaching a puppy can be trying. However, dog obedience training is crucial for the safety of your pet, your home, your property and other people. For your sake and the dog’s, you need to use positive techniques when you train him. On top of that, you have to stay patient and consistent. Set aside time each day to spend training your pet, usually 20 to 30 minutes in length is best, because that is the amount of time that they are most receptive. Longer than that causes boredom.
Crates need to be treated as the dog’s second home. Feed them in their crate and keep it open for them to come in and out. This way that start to like their crate even more.
Try to view things from your dog’s perspective. It’s easy to get irritated with them when they aren’t learning the basics quickly or even at all. Rather than giving up completely, you should try seeing things from your dogs perspective. Contemplating the world from their perspective may help you adjust your tactics.
Give your puppy with lots of chewable toys, otherwise he might alleviate his teething pain on your nice furniture. Replace the item immediately with one of the dog’s own chew toys. If your puppy seems to be suffering a lot from teething, a frozen washcloth to chew on can give him some relief.
Always remain consistent when crate training any young pups. When letting a puppy out of a crate, you need to let them relieve themselves immediately. Doing so helps him learn when it is okay to go to the bathroom.
Keep these tips in mind to have a happier dog. As a result, your pet, home property and others, are safer. When you implement training methods like those mentioned here, it will be easier for you to train your dog, in particular when you stay consistent and practice patience.
