New Puppy Make Training Easier In 2022 Must Read. Are you in the market for some great tips on raising a puppy? These skills then become the building blocks for more skills including walking nicely on a leash, impulse control, and recall or the come cue. Bottom line: pay attention to the order of the skills you teach. It makes a difference. You may not realize this until it’s too late, so just trust me on this! Ready for another don’t? DON’T: Let The Puppy Sleep With You.
Normal Puppy Curiosity
I know those little furry potatoes are so cute and when they sleep you just want to cuddle them forever. But it’s cute until it’s not cute. Potty training, teething, normal puppy curiosity, and even sterilization surgery can make bed sleeping problematic. Your soft squishy mattress acts like a sponge for any potty accidents. And the blankets and pillows might be great chew toys. Pretty soon your pup will be curious and may not want to stick by your side all night long.
Wait until these phases have passed for your best success. That’s usually around 9 months or a year. You might also continue to crate your puppy at night for life. That is a perfectly acceptable option and that’s what we do in our home. I find that I get better rest if the dogs are tucked away in their own spaces. I think they sleep better too.
They don’t get into any trouble when I’m asleep Time for another DO! DO: Teach the Puppy to Signal For Potty Breaks Sometimes I’ll get comments from my students: “Michele my puppy gives off no signals when he has to go potty. He just has an accident right there wherever he is!”. Well, I have to break it to the students that the pup does give off signals - but the human brain is probably just not quite used to seeing those signs so they end up missing the signal from their dog.

After all, canines speak body language and that’s a hard one for humans to learn. Doctor DO little is not a real thing! But if your pup is not signaling you in a way that you recognize, you can teach him to signal you differently. I am a big fan of the bell technique. This system involves teaching the pup to ring a bell when he needs to go out and go potty.

DO you love all this great info? Are you ready for your next trip? DO: Expose Your Puppy To New Things Soon and Often!
Those first few weeks when your puppy is in your home usually coincide with a window of opportunity in their brain development called an imprinting period This phase is when they are learning how to process new things in the world, and gain confidence and security. Exposing your puppy to new things positively and as often as possible in this phase is going to set your puppy up for success later on. If your vet tells you not to take him out at all until vaccinations are complete, I’d suggest you get a new vet.
The Puppy Learn New Things About The World
Current animal science tells us that the benefits of positive socialization and exposure during this phase far outweigh the risks. Ensure they are getting plenty of exposure in the critical first few weeks, this will have a lasting effect on your pup. This exposure should always be positive - not stressful - and does NOT mean interactions. Let the puppy learn new things about the world simply by smelling and exploring. This doesn’t mean dog parks or even playdates.
It could mean drive-throughs with the window down slightly so they can sniff from the safety of their crate, Or maybe you can take walks in parking lots and unused trails or occasional visits to friends’ houses. Wait until the pup has settled into your new home for a week or so and then head out and do exposure trips every day! While we are on this topic, that leads me into my next DON’T. DON’T: Go to Dog Parks I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
You do not need to go to dog parks to exercise or socialize your puppy. There are far better and safer ways to do it. This would be like taking a toddler to a room full of other toddlers with no supervision and expecting it to go well. It just doesn’t! It’s fine until it’s not fine. And this situation is always not fine. Unfortunately, too many dog owners bring inappropriate dogs to the dog park. These dogs tend to start fights, whether they mean to or not. Many people don't follow rules about leaving food, toys, or kids under 10 out of the park.
The Brush Off These Signals Which Put Their Dog
The dogs then fight over these resources and kids get scratched or knocked down. Many people don't know how to read canine body language and misinterpret the signals that dogs are giving off. They brush off these signals which put their dog, as well as others, in danger. Too many people bring sick dogs with kennel cough or contagious diseases to the dog park. People bring their high-energy revved-up dog that's been in a crate all day, which can lead to an altercation.
Instead of going to the dog park, I would suggest you find a friend with a dog that's about the same size and temperament to have a good playdate experience with. Some people arrange small groups of similar dogs to play with regularly. Help your dog pick friends that are like him and that he enjoys! You might have caught on to something I said just now: that many people don't know how to read canine body language and misinterpret the signals that dogs are giving off.
Understand Canine Body Language Humans
That leads me to my next DO: DO: Understand Canine Body Language Humans and canines don’t speak the same language! Through the process of training, you can teach him to understand you. But you also owe it to him to understand his language a little more. You’ll never be fluent in Dog, their body signals are so subtle it can be impossible for humans to pick up on every little thing unless you study this for a living. But take some time to understand some of the big cues, like when he is happy, stressed, scared, or curious.
And on a side note, a wagging tail does not always mean a happy dog, that’s what I mean about studying up on canine body language Knowing these signals allows you to better understand his reaction to situations so you know what to do. Having a dog means having a relationship with him or her and that means you need to be able to communicate and understand each other One of the most popular parts of my online course is the lessons on canine body language. I even have a video where I watch a doggy playdate and narrate with the signals that I’m seeing, to show you what to look for too. My students love that lesson and so will you. Next up.
