Puppy Tips

Getting a new puppy really does mix things up a bit!  So I thought I would share a few Puppy Dog Training TIPS for all you puppy owners out there:

  • Puppies take lots of time and effort (be prepared for these little bundles of fluff to rule your life for a little while) but they are so worth all the effort!
  • Consistent training is the key to success and it is never too early to start training your puppy
  • Keep the training sessions SHORT (10 mins x 4 times per day is plenty)- Quality is better than quantity
  • Reward & focus on the positive behavior
  • Watch them ALL THE TIME, puppies are inquisitive and are into everything!
  • PATIENCE, PATIENCE and more patience
  • Establish a routine early on that works for you and your puppy- please remember all puppies are different (more on that below!)
  • Avoid fearful experiences and situations, it is all about positive happy moments
  • Socialize your puppy in a safe manner
  • Introduce your puppy to new sights, sounds and smells- make those positive associations (always have your treats to hand to give a super reward)
  • Find a local Veterinarian- we have so many fantastic ones in the Valley, we really are spoilt for choice
  • Take your Puppy to Puppy class- your pup will get to meet other puppies and learn some good manners!
  • Puppy Socialization class/puppy training
  • Puppy proof your house- remove accessible food, cables, shoes, anything that could be chewed or injure your puppy should be removed. AGAIN- puppies are into EVERYTHING
