Effective Methods to Train Your Puppy’s BehaviorEffective Methods to Train Your Puppy’s Behavior

Good behaviour is not something puppies are born with.

The breeder didn’t bring a puppy with good behaviour. Although he may have been trained in basic toilet training by his breeder, your dog’s behaviour is completely up to you. The good news is that puppies learn quickly, so it’s a good idea to start training them as soon as possible. You can have a long-lasting relationship with your pet if you follow a few basic rules.

Reward good behaviour with a reward

Reward your puppy for doing good things naturally. Even though dogs of all ages respond positively to praise, food, or both, rewarding your puppy will ensure that he is “good” in the future. Timing is everything. Your puppy may associate the reward with another behaviour.

Do you want to prevent bad behaviour or ignore it?

The answer is both.

For example, chewing is a favourite pastime. As part of your puppy’s exploration of the world and discovery of new things, chewing is something you can expect him to enjoy. There are many reasons your puppy might chew, and they can range from boredom, teething, attention-seeking, and stress at being left alone.

Pillows, shoes, and furniture like chair legs are some of the dogs’ favourite objects to chew. You must make sure your dog knows what they can and cannot chew. He wasn’t born with the “mustn’t eat the children’s slippers” gene.

You should give your baby his chew toys. You should praise him when he chews on one of these toys and allow him to continue his chewing.

What happens when he eats the wrong foods? It’s okay to ignore it. It’s okay to ignore the “bad” behaviour. No shouting, no smacking and no angry face. You can pretend that your puppy isn’t there, and he’ll soon understand the message.

Sometimes, you need to ignore the “ignore” rule.

Sometimes, ignoring your dog’s bad behaviour can prove dangerous. You might find your dog chewing on a live wire. You must say “No” even though he doesn’t realize it’s dangerous or wrong. He doesn’t need to be shouted at or make a long, sarcastic argument. A short, sharp “no!” should suffice to get his attention. Once he’s stopped, praise him and give him a treat.

Don’t let barking drive you mad.

Did you know that puppies learn to protect themselves naturally as they reach maturity around 6 or 7 months? They do. Dog owners who fail to recognize this and allow their dogs to bark will find a dog who barks at everything. You won’t be in control of it.

If you want your dog to be happy and contented, don’t allow him to bark. He will not ignore serious threats, but he will react naturally to them.

Please don’t reward or encourage excessive barking. If he is about to take a walk, he may bark excitedly. You can ignore him and standstill. Continue your walk preparations until he stops barking.
