Training Your New Puppy - Local Vet Top 10 Tips 2017

Where your new puppy is sleeping!

Firstly I would recommend you train your pet to use its bed; this teaches your puppy that this is their space.

You should also include your puppies’ favorite toys into their space; this makes them feel that they are where they should be.

Around the bed you should place newspaper in case the puppy needs the toilet before you can train it to go outside.

Where its food and water dishes are located!

You have many different options on where your new puppy should or should not eat, this is what suites you the best. This does not have to be next to where the puppy sleeps.

What times of day he will eat!

Fresh water needs to bet left out at all times. You should try and keep to the same feeding routine every day, your puppy will soon learn when to expect when it is time to eat.

Training your new puppy obedience!

The most important words are "No" (which means "Stop whatever you're doing") and "Good" (which means "I like what you're doing").
You must teach these words properly, with the right tone of voice and the right body language, or they won't be of any help in teaching other new words.
Create a variety of stimulation whilst training your new puppy to play with different objects: large balls, small balls, soft fabric toys, fuzzy toys, squeaky toys and sticks.
Different locations for your puppy to experiences playing in: back garden, (make sure they can’t get out) kitchen, car garage, laundry room and bathroom.
You'll want your new puppy to know all of these places are safe, so make sure to offer pleasant experiences in each.
You should teach your puppy to respect you as the leader in your home; if your puppy doesn’t respect you as being the leader whilst young I’m afraid it’s going to be an uphill struggle.

What time he goes to bed?

I have always trained my dogs to go to their beds at the same time as we did mainly because we always treated them as part of the family.
What time he gets up?
Your puppy will sense when you wake up, their hearing is far better than that of humans he will be up standing at the ready with tail wagging waiting for you to walk into the room.

Where he goes to the bathroom?

My recommendation would be to train your puppy to use part of the garden that is easy for you to get to; this way you can clean it up easily.

Learn to love your puppy and it will love you back more than you can imagine.
