Dogs use their mouths for everything! But it’s not cool when they don’t learn when it’s all right to bite and when it’s not…these training tips will help you train your dog, so he/she knows what you expect of him.
Dogs aren’t a lot different than humans are when it comes to learning and performance…we both like to be rewarded. How do you reward yours and with what?
Puppy training is a two-way process, both you and your pup are having a learning experience…although he/she is learning about what you expect of her…what behaviors you want, you’re both learning about each other. It’s a great time for bonding and building that special relationship that you can only have with your dog.
Once your puppy begins the teething process, you’ll notice that everything in his/her reach is fair game for “gumming”, chewing and gnawing…How can you help him and save your things?
If you’re getting a new puppy, one of the first items you should be purchasing is a dog crate, his/her own little safe haven where she can feel secure. When thinking about dog crates, think of them as an enclosure rather than a cage, that will help you put the right perspective to them as you are searching for the right one.
Dogs, young or old, are just like kids, they’re curious, like nosing into things, and often get into things they shouldn’t. So just like you protect your things, and your kids from accidents by baby proofing, it’s also a good idea to do some dog proofing. These are a few ideas to make our home a safer place.
