How to Teach a Puppy
Dog obedience is crucial for a happy family pet/owner relationship. Learning a few basic pup training tips will have you well on the way to successfully training your pup.
Puppy Training Foundations
Motivate your puppy
As soon as you bring your pup home, step into his brain frame. Dogs are pack pets
and prefer to follow a leader. If you become one, your puppy�s biggest inspiration will become making you happy.

If you fail to be consistent, your puppy will be too.
You can find no free rides as it pertains to treats. Make your pup earn each one of them.
It�s better to avoid offering puppy dog food as praise every time. Start steadily replacing the treat with compliment. Once your pup has learned a command, give the treat every other time, then every third time, always praising enthusiastically. Soon, your puppy will work for praise and the occasional treat.
Dogs aren't spiteful. If your puppy is doing something amiss, it probably got the idea it was alright. You must teach your pup otherwise.
First, catch him in the act. Dogs can�t connect a punishment to an action hours or even minutes ago. Never strike your puppy. Instead, when you see your pup doing something wrong, say, �No� in a razor-sharp tone. Whenever your pup stops, praise him and give him something else to do like �Sit down� or �Come�. Praise him abundantly for responding.
Remember, pup training
doesn't have to be harsh. With a wide variety of training methods available, choose one which best suits you and your pup. If it doesn�t work, just try another o
