Puppy Training: Beginning The Right Way

Jul 5, 2008
Dogs are mans very best friend and even though they are loyal and obedient they sometimes can have the weirdest problems you have ever experienced. There are many things that can upset a dog enough to cause these sorts of weird problems. It can range anywhere from some previous owner abusing that animal to it being a newly born puppy and you the owner unknowingly caused the problem. There have been many cases where an owner would act very nice to the dog and let him get away with doing things that he shouldn't be doing or that should be punished in some way. The main point in this article is to discuss ways to be the leader that your new puppy needs. You need to be able to show him that you are his leader and that he can't walk over you and do whatever it is that he wants to do because there are consequences for his actions. He may be young but this is a great time to show him and train him in what you want from him in your home. This applies to many different situations and to better address these issues, this article will be split into that many other articles so that all of them get an equal amount of time.

The first and major issue that is very important is potty training. Personally it's never too early to potty train a pet. It is something that sets boundaries and goals for you as well as him. It is also a bit of training for you because it not only gives you a goal to strive for but it will also teach you consistency and discipline. There are countless times when someone has said that they don't understand why there dog doesn't seem to get into the act of urinating outside. When asked what they are doing to try and remedy this they usually say that they take him out and tell him no when he does it in the house. This is all well and fine but when they are asked how often they do it and how consistently they don't have an answer. That is the point here. To train a dog to go to the bathroom outside or more specifically to not pee in your house you need to train him consistently to go outside. That requires that you put in the effort to see results. When you walk him make sure you walk him at the same time everyday so that he gets into a schedule.

Next time in a future article I want to go a bit more in-depth about what it means to walk your dog on a schedule. It may sound so simple when you hear it now but it has complicated steps that need your attention and your consistency. It's not something to take lightly because these are the months where you can mold him into the dog you want him to be and how you want him to behave.
