At times it’s frustrating to train a puppy; however, the key to properly and successfully training one is patience. Most people who decide to get a puppy believe it will be an easy task, but you need a lot of time in order to care for it and train it well.
Here is a list of things you will need:
Crate
Puppy Food
Pee Pads
Love
A Squirt bottle
Leash and Collar
Toys
Bed
A Heart
Food and Water bowl
The first few days are extremely important. Everyone wants to hold the puppy, feed the puppy, and sleep with the puppy; however, if you’re going to crate train them, you have to stick to that. You can’t bend the rules because you feel sad that the puppy is barking. Let them bark, and sit in their cage. They will get used to it.
Take them outside every hour to the same spot to go to the bathroom. Overly praise them when they go to the bathroom outside to raise awareness in them that going outside is the right thing. There will be accidents in the house, but don’t hit them or beat them. You need to get a spray bottle and spray them, use a stern tone to show that you are upset and that is not what they should do, and then you will need to immediately take them out to the bathroom spot.
Puppies are very hyper and active, and also sleep a lot. You need to take your puppy out and play with him/her for a long, sustained period of time. They will eat a lot, so it’s important that they get lots of exercise.
It’s very important that you make them friendly. Always have them around other dogs and people. Make your puppy social. You want a social dog. Make them do things as a puppy so that when they are an adult they won’t care.
Take them in the car, to the beach, give them baths, play with their paws, so this way when they are older they will be okay with all this. Like when it’s time to go to the groomers, they won’t freak and bite the groomers. They will be calm and respectable.
These are very helpful tips for anyone that is wanting to train a puppy, there are also multiple websites you can go to that will help.
