How to Train a Puppy
Pro Puppy Training Tip: Prevent puppy behavior problems, and avoid headaches and heartaches other new puppy parents suffer! Learn how to train a puppy to do the things you like, thereby preventing your puppy from doing things that drive you batty.
You're asking, â€œHow do I stop my puppy from..."
- Having potty accidents in the house?
- biting my hands and feet?
- chewing my shoes?
You should be asking, â€œHow do I teach a puppy to...?"
My best advice is to prevent your puppy from learning bad habits in the first place. That's why I love proactively teaching first time dog owners:
- How to train a puppy to potty in the right places.
- How to train a puppy to keep their teeth on their toys and off people during greetings and play.
- How to train a puppy to chew the right things.
- How to train a puppy to stay calm and quiet when appropriate.
- How to train a puppy keep four paws on the ground (to prevent jumping up.)
Using a few easy household management strategies and lifestyle training techniques, even a first-time puppy parent can learn how to train a puppy to do the right thing. It takes much more work to train a puppy out of â€œbad" behavior they have already found enjoyable or useful.
You see, the real secret on how to train a puppy successfully is this:
You can drastically improve your puppy's ability to quickly learn how to be the dog you love living with by simply preventing your puppy from having opportunities to practice certain predictable behaviors which dogs naturally enjoy and humans can't stand while you train your puppy to develop habits you approve of.
If your puppy has already learned bad habits, you'll still want to use my pro puppy management tips to prevent your puppy from â€œpracticing" the unwanted habits. Each time your puppy practices a habit and has fun and gets (even negative) attention for doing it, the habit grows stronger.
