Trying to train your new puppy? We’ve all been there. It can be a tough road sometimes. With these simple tips, you will find success as you begin to teach your puppy their do’s and dont’s!
Praise Good Behavior
Whenever you’re trying to teach your dog anything, you should always praise their good behavior. Be very clear that they’ve done a good job with verbal enthusiasm, petting, and treats. Dogs will quickly learn that they’ve done something good and look for this praise from you!
Always be clear when they’ve done something wrong. You don’t want to confuse them with your praise and punishments!
Repetition Is Key
Your puppy isn’t going to get everything straight away. It’s going to take some time. Repetition is a sure way to get your dog to understand what they’re supposed to be doing.
If you’re trying to teach your pup new tricks, try and hold little training sessions daily as they work to understand. The more you do something over time, the more your pet will get it. But remember that your puppies, like toddlers, have a short attention span! They won’t be able to sit still for too long in one session.
Always End on a Positive Note
Training your puppy can be fun… and it can be frustrating. But that doesn’t mean you should give up! Make sure to always end your training sessions on a positive note, as your puppy will pick up on your negativity and become confused as to why they’ve upset you.
Praising your dog at the end of the session can also help make your pup more receptive to training the next time around. Remember: repetition is key!
