5 USEFUL TIPS FOR PUPPY TRAINING

5 USEFUL TIPS FOR PUPPY TRAINING

1. TRAINING METHOD

Before you even start with a training, you should think of a specific method you want to use to fulfill your training goals. As we know, there are many different approaches to training out there so choose wisely and keep your goals on your mind. As a dog lover, I highly recommend  to stay away from punishment based methods because even in the dog world, there should be a piece of humanity.

2. TRAINING SCHEDULE

If you own a puppy, it's similar to having a small child. There is definitely a lack of attention, which is short, so you should adapt to this and keep your training sessions short and build on frequency instead.  

3. TRAINING FREQUENCY 

Like I sad before, at the beginning it is better to go with multiple short sessions in a range between 5 to 10 per day and gradually increase the length as your puppy gets older. Keep in mind that they've got plenty of energy, therefore, add phsysical and mental stimulation through the training, walking and some play time. 

4. BASIC COMMANDS  

So, now you've build a plan and the training is finally here. Don't put too much pressure on your puppy and start with one simple command at the time, e.g. sit, stay, go...If the puppy is doing well, treat and praise him for a good behavior. Later, when he finally starts to understand the meaning of your commands, stop using treats and rely more on praise.

5. SET RULES

This one is important. If you want to achieve a good behavior, puppies need the rules and boundaries from the early begining. Make sure that everyone in your household is on the same side and not sabotaging your training efforts. Keep in mind that consistency and patience is the key for succes.

Following these 5 simple rules is a good basis for the happy future with your well behaved puppy, which will make your life together much easier and comfortable  looking ahead. Moreover, training your Doggo is also important for his own safety! Try to stay positive if all doesn't go according to the plan, give him time to adjust and Im going to repeat this again, stay away from applying physical punishments ;) 

We wish you a good luck!
