The Great Importance of Basic Puppy Training

Welcoming a new puppy into one’s family is a very exciting experience. Dog lovers all over the world can attest to the fact that there is nothing that can compare to the love and affection that a dog can offer to its humans. However, a puppy should be taught certain rules that it must follow to maintain a harmonious relationship with its humans. This article presents some basic puppy training tips to help out new puppy owners.

The first thing to be done for a new puppy is to have him checked by a veterinarian to make sure that its shots are complete and that it is healthy enough to undergo a training program. One of the basic things that dog owners have to know is that dogs thrive on routine. So when it comes to house training there should only be one designated place for each particular task such as an eating place, a toilet place, and a sleeping area.

There must be a clear schedule of walking, feeding, and training the puppy.

Food and water should be supervised closely because overfeeding it will result in the untimely need to relieve themselves. The first thing to invest in when one is giving basic puppy training is an adjustable collar and a three-in-one training leash. Toys and chewable treats should also be available at all times.

Puppies learn very quickly, especially if the training involves proper encouragement and correction techniques. Once the puppy does a behavior correctly the human should reward it by giving the puppy some treats or by simply saying “good boy” or “good girl” while gently stroking its fur. The most crucial thing here is timing. The reward should be given right after the behavior is done so that the puppy understands that he should repeat that behavior in order to get a reward. Humans should also be firm when it comes to basic puppy training. You should only give treats when a behavior is done correctly and not too much, such as when it gives you that cute puppy look.

When it comes to house training one of the most desired methods is paper training. This is done by scattering old newspaper in the places where the puppy usually relieves itself. For the first few times the puppy will surely miss the spot but if the human keeps a soiled newspaper in the designated toilet area the puppy has the tendency to sniff out the smell and follow it. It will then understand that this particular place is where it should do its business.

Humans should understand that it takes awhile for puppies to fully grasp the rules in the house. So a lot of patience and commitment is needed to successfully train it. Humans just have to stretch their patience out a bit more and eventually the efforts will pay off.
