Bringing a new puppy into your home can be time consuming and overwhelming, especially if it’s the first timeyou’ve ever owned a pet. Adding a new puppy into your family or life involves a lot of understanding, research, commitment, preventive maintenance and should be regarded with much respect and care as you would provide to any other family member.
Following are some puppy training tips for first time puppy owners
#Puppy socializing-Many first time puppy owners fail to realize how important it is when your puppy socializes with other animals and people as quick as possible. The best time socialize is from the age of 4 weeks to sixteen weeks. You should take your puppy to your groomer, beach, parades, hikes in the hood, visit to the veterinary’s office and any place that can expose your puppy to different sounds, experiences and sights. Make a schedule on how to socialize your puppy. Develop a list of the people and places that you would want to expose your own puppy.
#Start training now-It is never too early or late to begin training your puppy. It might sound a bit odd, but you can teach an eight weeks old puppy simple command (such as stay or sit). The perfect way to teach and train your puppy is by having praising and treats. Puppy training tips or techniques can be an uphill task to some pet-owners; this is truer for new pet-owners. Fortunately, puppies learn quickly if correct and effective training techniques are applied. Catching a puppy before he does anything wrong is the correct time to begin your house training. Correcting your puppy before he makes a slipup is imperative because he will learn when he does something-wrong rather than discipline your puppy hours after an incident or accident.
#Start crate training-It’s a great way to train your own puppy as it gives a personal space for your puppy. The crate training technique makes your puppy more comfortable when provided with toys and blankets since a puppy doesn’t understand that they shouldn’t chew chicken bones, old sponge and electrical cords. A puppy that isn’t kept to a crate has a better chance for injury. It’s good to make use of a crate when you bring your own puppy into the house.
#Puppy bladder rule-This help you determine how long your puppy can remain until it will go potty.
#Watch attention seeking puppy-Puppies learn how to manipulate their owners. If your puppy happens to whine it may end up learning that whining will give attention, hence may be used a tool to manipulate.
#Puppies will chew- The eruption of its permanent teeth will make the puppy chew anything it comes across, hence providing your puppy with a chew toy is a good approach for the need to chew.
#Train against resource guarding-One of the most imperative lessons you can impart on your puppy is to accept your coming near his chew items, resting places, toys and food.
Last but not least you should be careful on what tricks you teach your puppy since the first tricks a puppy learns is more often the behavior he will get back to whenever he is frustrated or confused.
