Training and Conditioning Guide for Puppies

Training should be done on the basis of a good partnership between the human and the dog, not to dominate the dog and yell and scold the dog as if he were a lackey. Affirm it more in training, tell it what you want it to do, and don't always stop it from doing something. Give it some affection and praise often and you will have a happy and joyful companion. In fact, the dog is always thinking about pleasing its master, as long as the master is happy, it is willing to do. So you just have to be loving and patient, and training is a lot of fun.

Puppy Training

Training a puppy should take into account its physical and intellectual development, do not limit the time to train a certain project, you can play with it while letting it remember the signals and some actions. Don't call a puppy stupid because it is slow to learn, even a simple command should be repeated over and over again. Changing training methods often is helpful to strengthen the puppy's memory. Anyway, as soon as you start training your puppy, you can gradually figure out your own set of training methods from it.

Puppy Training

1. Calling name training starts with the puppy

First of all, give it a name, it should be simple and loud. Whenever feeding, the owner approaches the puppy while calling its name in a gentle tone, and then places the food in front of it. Usually, carry the puppy's favorite dry food with you, call its name while playing with it, and reward it with some good food when it comes over with a shake of its head. With this method of food stimulation, you can gradually condition your puppy to its name, and then finally give it some petting and praise to consolidate the training effect.

Do not call its name in the time of no response, angry reprimand it, do this more times, it will never ignore you; do not shout to chase, that will only scare it away. This situation can be taken to clap your hands, back up and other actions to cause excitement in the puppy, so that it runs towards you, while the mouth constantly calls the name of the puppy.

Once you start using the puppy's name, it is best not to change it casually. If he still does not respond to his name after a period of time, think about where you went wrong: for example, did you call his name in a high voice, making him think you were reprimanding him; or did you mix his name with other commands, making him confused?

When you call your puppy's name anywhere, he can come running to you without hesitation, the training is complete.

2. How to train a puppy to have a good personality?

Puppies remember best when they are two months old, which is the key period to developing good character and building up self-confidence, so let them have close contact with people, hug them often, and let them get familiar with human scent. When it pleases you, give it a caress to let it know that you like it, and later it will be able to treat people as friends. Puppies that are still not exposed to people for 3 months or so will be difficult to tame in their wildness and will not be friendly with people.

Puppies, like children, grow up in an important environment. Dogs raised indoors are familiar with the owner's routine since they grow up around him, and are easier to communicate with than dogs raised outdoors.

Educating a puppy should follow the example of its mother and take a positive and kind approach. If he behaves well, he will get a good meal or caress; when he inadvertently does something wrong, do not treat him with rough or sudden movements, a stern reprimand is enough to make the puppy understand: you do not like his actions. The puppy is often scolded, it will make its psychological shadow so that its life away from people.

Of course, its unreasonable demands can not be tolerated, especially 3 to 4 months after puppies begin to become assertive, this time if not develop obedience, then they will have to control the master.

In addition, dogs also need to socialize, from an early age, often take them out and encourage them to play with other dogs or small animals. It's natural for puppies to be rougher when they play together. Don't discourage your puppy from barking at its partner, and only go sternly to stop it when it has really aggressive behavior. In this way, the puppy will develop self-confidence and an easy-going personality, and it will not attack people or other animals when it grows up.

How to make the puppy adapt to the new environment?

Bringing your puppy home is the first crucial moment for it to start its new life. On the way home, you'd better be beside it to gently soothe it and make it feel warm in your embrace.

How to make the puppy adapt to the new environment?

When you arrive home, let your puppy rest first! Don't tease the tired puppy out of curiosity, and don't give it a lot of treats right away, but give it some water first to move its muscles.

The puppy will feel lonely and worried when it leaves its parents and siblings for the first time in its life and comes to a strange place.

How will the puppy spend the first night in the new owner's home, it is not asleep until dawn, the first half of the night when he wakes up and often play with his companions in the den for a while, if you do not see them, he will be lonely and lonely and wail.
So you have to be prepared to be woken up at night, do not hear the sound of barking to check on it, so it will form a "barking someone to come around" memory, so it will bark more happily. You have to put up with it for two nights to get it used to sleep alone in its own place. You can also put their used "doggy" things in the nest so that they can sleep with some peace of mind.

If you prefer to live with your dog in close proximity, simply place his litter next to your bed so that when he wakes up in the middle of the night, you can pet him and put him to sleep like his mother.

In short, let the puppy eat well and sleep well in your home so that it will soon consider this place as its home.
