Puppy Training Tips


Puppies are the most wonderful pets to bring into your family and they can be the best new addition to
your home this year. A puppy is a loyal and loving animal and they will always be more than happy to be
with you and spend time with you when our really down. 


Training a puppy can be a bit of a challenge and this is why a lot of the time we give up and end up with
dogs who are a little less than perfectly behaved. However there are certain things every dog needs to
be taught and here are some handy tips to help you teach these behaviours in the right way.

Choose a good name 


The first thing you need to be sure of when you want to pick a dog for your family is to choose a good
name. Any name can be great however dogs will find it easier to respond to names with the sound ‘ie’
or ‘y’ at the end. The reason for this is that this sound is a high pitched noise which registers in their
ears much easier. So names such as Harry, Millie, Archie and Alfie can be great options for your little
puppy. 


Have treats handy 


The best thing you can do when Puppy Training is have a bag of small treats handy at all times.
Treats can be a great way to grab your puppy’s attention and help positively reinforce them when they
do something right. A treat will also ensure that they learn a behaviour quicker because they will learn
that if they perform a certain action, they will be rewarded with a treat. Treats could be something like
gravy bones or biscuits, or if you want to be a little healthier you can use cubes of carrots or squash
which have been boiled. 

Be patient


It is important that when training your dog that you don’t become irritated and lash out when they do
things wrong. Your puppy won’t understand that they are doing something wrong and this kind of raised
voice or behaviour can be incredibly confusing for them. Make sure that you stay patient at all times and
be aware that it will take some time for your dog to learn new actions. 


Use a training pad 

If you want to toilet train your puppy, one of the best things you can do is buy a training pad for them to
use in the house before gradually training them to pee outside. The best way to do this is find one spot
in the house and leave the pad here. When your dog is used to using the pad, move it to near the back
door of the house, then outside, then remove it all together. Eventually your dog will be used to peeing
outside with no help. 


Praise him 

Always finish a training session with positive attitudes and praise your puppy for doing good! They need
to know that they are loved and that they have done well because this will encourage them in the future.
