When you get a new puppy, they are adorable balls of fur. However, puppies know very little about behaving, which means they can develop bad behaviors if left untreated. Beyond the Dog wants to offer you some essential puppy training tips. These tips will help you develop your puppy into a happy and healthy adult.
Consistency is Crucial
If there is one thing Beyond the Dog’s programs teach owners, its consistency is the most important aspect of dog training. Ensure everyone in your household is interacting with the puppy the same way. When teaching your puppy commands, make sure your loved ones know the proper methods of training.
Socialize Your Puppy
Socialization is also another important part of puppy training. Aim for your puppy to see 20 new people and dogs each week, visit new locations and bring lots of treats! This will help your pup grow into a confident and social adult!
Stop Play-Biting and Chewing Early
Behaviors such as play biting and chewing are common among puppies. Fix these behaviors using Beyond the Dog’s training resources to learn how to stop these behaviors early. You may also approach us about enrolling in a dog training program. All of our programs are developed from the ground up by a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist (CAAB) and a Certified Dog Behaviors Consultant (CDBC).
Regular Puppy Training Sessions
A regular training schedule will feed into consistency and help solidify obedience commands you are teaching. Keep these sessions short, yet frequent in order to keep your puppies’ mind sharp. Try to fit several of these training sessions into a day. Before you know it, your puppy will start to show results.
