Puppy Training Guide

Ensure that you take the time to watch out for very subtle signs that may indicate that your puppy needs to go. According to a good dog behaviourist guide, a pretty good sign that can help you know that your puppy wants to ease itself is when it walks around and sniffing the floor/ground. It is embarrassing for friends, co-workers, and relatives to come into your home, only to be greeted by a very pungent smell. There are times when strong and very effective cleaning agents cant do a thorough job of ridding your home of dog pooh smell. A dog behaviourist will provide you with a puppy training techniques that will help you teach your puppy that peeing and number two is done outside the house. Potty training your puppy is way better than having to clean up after it has soiled your new carpet.

Quickly carry or lead your puppy to its designated potty location. The puppy’s designated potty place can be situated outside the house/apartment. It important to understand that whichever place you select as your puppy’s potting place, you will need to stick to that place. A properly trained puppy can be taken virtually everywhere and is truly a pleasure to have around.

Purchase a crate for your puppy to sleep in when you are not at home. Ensure that you select a crate that is big enough, this way; your pup can lie down comfortably in the crate. Dogs will typically not soil where they sleep – doing this will train your puppy, it teaches the puppy that it can hold it until it goes outside or to its training pad.

If the crate you purchased for your puppy is too big, it might just move to one side of the crate in order to potty instead of waiting until it gets out. Take out your puppy from the crate and immediately lead it outside after you get home.

Another effective puppy training tip is to ensure that you pay close attention to its schedule.

Take the puppy out at least every 2 hours when it is not in the crate
20 – 30mins after it has eaten
First thing when  the sun rises
After naps
Prior to bedtime

Proper puppy training with the help of a dog behaviourist will help lower the possibility of accidents.

Puppy training will include praising your dog every time it goes where it is supposed to. Every dog behaviourist will tell you that showing a lot of affection and praising your puppy will go a long way to help the puppy understand that it has done something good to please its owner. This will also teach your puppy that its actions can also affect your actions, and it will be willing to please you over and over.
