  1. How To Train A Puppy
  2. A well-socialized dog will interact well with all types of peopleand situations, even those it has never been in before. With the appropriate social skills, your dog will show little or no fear of most objects, people or other animals, and even if startled, will recover quickly and wont panic. Puppy training should begin when she is anywhere from 9 to 12 weeks old. While some early training can be started
  3. as soon as your puppy comes home, its often better to wait until she is around this age. Keep in mind that training cancover a wide range of topics. Start off with the basics - things like house-training and teaching her to obey your NO.Socialization skills are next. Experts tell us the best windowfor your puppy to learn socialization skills is between 3 and
  4. 6 weeks - thats the best time to ensure that your puppy grows into a well-adjusted adult. Socialization is aboutgiving your dog the self-assurance to deal correctly with anysocial environment it finds its self in and is one of the most valuable and lasting lessons you can teach it. Bottom line, a well-adjusted dog is one that is comfortablein a variety of situations and surroundings. It may be excited
  5. in a new setting, but not fearful.The key here, is to create positive experiences as you expose your dog to more and more new situations.Even training your puppy for 5 - 10 minutes per day as soon as you bring it home will make a big difference in its socialskills and adaptability. Keep in mind that puppies have very short attention spans, so keep your lessons short and fun. How short an attention span? That depends on the age of
  6. the puppy, its breed and how mature your individual puppy is. However, a good rule of thumb is to keep the training sessions within that 5 -10 minute range. Depending on your puppys age and maturity level,sometime between 3 and 6 months of age, you should be moving the training into the area of the basic commands such as Sit, Heel, Down, etc. Its important you have
  7. realistic expectations about your dogs capabilities at this point - I dont expect a puppy to be responding to thebasic commands with any degree of regularity until theyve reached 6 months of age. Puppy training (well, all dog training for that matter) has three main components - known as "PCP" - that you needto keep in mind day in and day out when youre training your
  8. puppy: 1. Patience. 2. Consistency. 3. Practice.Patience is the key to any training program with your puppy.The level of patience you display while training your dog will have a direct impact on whether you have a happy, well- trained dog, or a miserable, misbehaving one.
  9. Youre the adult here, remember? Youre the trainer, the leader of your pack (the Alpha Dog), and the one doingthe teaching. You know that your puppy needs short and positive training sessions. You know you cant teach iteverything in one session, or even in a week of sessions.
  10. So, patience is the key. If you find yourself getting frustrated when training your puppy, end the session on a positive note, and stop the training. Dont lose your temper and takeit out on your dog. Its not the puppys fault that youre getting annoyed - ok, well, maybe it is, but its up to you to maintain control and restart the training on another day.
  11. Consistency is the second most important component oftraining. It is very important that everyone in the family givesthe dog the same commands and allow the same behaviors. I cant stress this point enough. If your family is all on the same page in terms of training, your puppy will be trained more quickly and thoroughly than you can imagine. When someone in your family says "Sit" to the puppy, it will knowthat it means "Sit." Not "Lie Down," not "Ok, go eat your food
  12. now," not "Its ok to chase the cat." Sit means Sit. Down means Down.It is equally important to keep the behaviors consistent. You cant have one family member letting your dog get on thecouch and another trying to discipline it and telling it "No!" for the same behavior. It will only confuse it, with the end result that it wont learn which behavior is right. So it will either try to do both, or neither.
  13. Practice makes perfect. I really hate to use that old adage,but its true! Repetition is the way to teach your dog a lesson - any lesson. Repeating the lesson over and over again will make it stick so deeply in your dogs memory, that its likelythat it will never forget it, and thats what you want. You want the puppys reaction to your commands to become second
  14. nature, obeyed almost instinctively and certainly followed immediately.Visit How To Train A Puppy http://ivorytowergroup.net/how- to-train-a-puppy/ for more details.
