Five quick tips on training your puppy

cute-beagleIf you’ve never had a dog, training can be a very frustrating experience. We will try to make this situation a little easier for you. Here are some tips which may help.

  • Begin training your pup as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be.
  • Pay close attention as to when your puppy has to go. They will always have to go immediately after they eat, play or wake up. Take them out at these times and reward them with a dog treat when they do their business outside.
  • If you are crate training, never leave your puppy in the crate for more than four hours at a time. A puppy cannot hold it that long and you don’t want to get them used to going in their dog crate.
  • Socialize your puppy as soon as possible. Get him used to being around other people and pets. This will prevent him from becoming aggressive later on.
  • Never train your dog when you’re upset. If you’re angry, your pup will sense this and associate fear with going outside to do his business.

Be patient, this process will improve over time.
