How to Train a Puppy

What to Cover When Training Your Puppy

Confidence in Environment.

Your puppy must learn to be confident with the things within her surroundings. Socialize her in a positive way to everyday noises, etc. A great method to socialize her so she doesn’t embarrass you in public or in your home while entertaining guests is to take her to at least three different locations weekly.

Confidence in Self.

The more confident you are in your direction, the more easily she can follow your lead, and the easier it is to praise her wholeheartedly. And dogs thrive on praise. The further you praise her for accomplished tasks, the more assurance she will gain. Give no less than ten easy tasks per day to have her earn praise and confidence.

Confidence in Direction.

At this early period, your puppy is gathering impressions of the way that you act , creating a viewpoint of humans from the examples you set while raising her. The way you act and socialize with your dog sets the stage and tone for the rest of the relationship. Keep your conduct positive and trustworthy to get her confidence.

New Item Acceptance.

Help her to investigate things and also to accept new items with good direction and praise. Praise her for following your lead. Expose her to many different objects with a favorable result every time. Touch the thing you wish for her to inquire and praise heartily when she shows interest.

Accepting New Challenges.

Encourage little tasks so she can earn praise for each. Doing jobs and earning praise will help her gain confidence in doing new things according to your direction. She will also learn to accept new challenges without anxiety, and you’ll spare yourself coming home to a photo-worthy of submission to Shamed Dog Photos.

Puppy Raising, Puppy Praising

Approval of the Crate and Boundaries.

Using strategies including the crate method to restrict your puppy’s independence can help her develop an acceptance of borders. If that isn’t realized during her first several months, she’ll have a hard time respecting boundaries and restrictions on her freedom later.

Learning to Fly Solo.

Your puppy must also learn to be comfortable being solo. Small intervals of crating in a quiet room far from the family will help her develop this confidence. Frequent breaks in between crate sessions may help her see that it’s only temporary and she’s not abandoned.

Learning how to Chew in the Proper Toys.

(Keeping the appropriate chew toys available, obtaining the right toys, and using proper redirection techniques.)
