Training a New Puppy

Being a proud puppy owner is a blast. Pups are fun, adorable, and offer constant companionship. But in order to ensure your puppy has the proper behavior, it's often necessary to train him or her; sometimes, this task is best left to the pros! Check out some helpful definitions that may assist you in your search for a professional dog trainer. You may also run into these phrases when reading up on training yourself.

  • Obedience Training – Good behavior starts with you. To train your new family member, you may want to look into a class for the dog. Obedience school is oftentimes offered at local pet stores. A professional will know how to teach your dog to obey a rule, not bite, and keep from being aggressive toward people and animals.
  • Housebreak – A lesson you should be teaching your pup from the start is how to eliminate outside, and not in his crate or on your carpet!
  • Agility Training – This can come later in your puppy's life if you wish. In order for your puppy to exhibit the proper behavior, he'll need to know how to listen, follow commands, and respect you as an owner. Agility training helps in all of these areas, as it requires your dog to pay special attention to you in order to complete a trick.
  • Whisper Training – Because a dog is a wild animal at his core, it's important that you know how to "speak" his language. Whisper training helps you understand your pooch so he can be as well behaved as possible.

    Enrolling in obedience classes and using whispering techniques are key to training your dog to be well behaved. Canines use these skills for work duties in the military, police force, or on the farm herding animals. Pets who understand rules and commands are less likely to show aggression, bite children, or ignore their master. For training to work, the owner must work with their pet and never reward bad behavior. Most classes at puppy schools are completed in two months and meet weekly. Owners work with puppies daily to teach new rules. Basic commands include sit, stay, and lay. Once this basic skill level is mastered, tricks like roll over are taught. Agility programs help prevent boredom and keep pets exercised. They're a good step to take after a canine masters primary commands. Canines who understand these rules behave in any environment, including the groomer, or veterinary office. Housebreaking a puppy requires lessons at home. A kennel, crate, or cage is useful in housebreaking. Many pets consider these units to be their own personal space, so they don't object to being placed in one. Barking is a behavior that many pet owners want corrected. Repetitive “no-bark” commands help overcome this negative conduct. Some veterinarians recommend the use of citronella collars that spray citronella if a dog barks. The collars are more humane than shock collars and have shown to be very effective. Look for schools that are taught by professionals with certification in obedience and agility expertise. These instructors may work privately, or for a boarding kennel. Whisperers are better to use for aggressive canines, including those who have already bitten someone. They work to get the problem canine to obey simple commands after determining what triggers the animal's negative response. Ask your veterinarian about dog trainers in your area.
