Some Healthy Toys From The Puppy Boutique

There is no better addition to a pet lover’s life than a brand new puppy. They do require more maintenance than an older dog, this is true, but the antics they get into can be priceless at times. Unfortunately, some of their antics can also be aggravating, annoying and frustrating to their pet parent. They can also be potentially dangerous at times, so to safeguard the health of your new puppy, you might want to check out some of the new toy offerings from an Internet puppy boutique. The new lines available from established designers now include toys that are designed to be healthier for your pet to use, especially when they reach that horrible period that starts around three months old, when everything becomes irresistible, and must be chewed!

According to experts at any puppy boutique, the main reason that pups begin chewing everything in sight is because their teeth have reached the next development stage. Just like when toddlers begin teething, to relieve the discomfort of the new teeth growing in, they must chew on whatever is handy to make themselves feel better. The typical teething toys found in most pet stores will work, but many of them contain harmful chemicals or are made out of hard plastic that could potentially hurt their gums. Instead, try some of the healthier toys that are made out of organic materials that are available at most boutiques. Even if your little destructive machine manages to tear them apart, the organic materials and natural dyes used to create them guarantee that they will not be harmed if they swallow the bits. And, the design of the toys themselves actually helps to soothe their gums and clean their developing teeth while they chew. A definite win for everyone involved.

Reasons puppies chew on everything

Before your home is in tatters, begin your anti-chewing puppy program. First, you need to understand the psychology of the chewing puppy. There are several reasons puppies chew on anything and everything. Puppies are teething and they chew on articles to relieve the pain. Sometimes they chew on things just because they have nothing better to do. Chewing is a highly esteemed activity with all puppies. Often, they chew on something because they enjoy the scent of a family member which resides on the item – very good sniffers, they are. They also may be trying to establish their spot as top dog in the household – including you and everyone in the family! There’s no question that they need to chew, but a chewing puppy, unchecked, will not outgrow this tendency. Instead, once he’s out of the puppy stage, he’ll continue the practice to show his position of authority. It is best to purchase a few Doggy Chew Toys for your friend.

House Training Puppies – Crate Training Is The Most Effective Method

When House Training Puppies, crate training is the quickest way to get the job done.  It works so well because when crate training puppies, it’s very simple to get a handle on your dog’s eating and toilet schedule, while making it very clear to your puppy where the toilet area is.

Some people have a difficult time with crate training because they feel it is cruel, and your puppy may fuss a bit about being kept in the crate, and that’s normal. However, dogs like having a den area, and this creates a safe area for your dog that he knows is his “home”. Crate training works because a puppy is very resistant to messing up his own space, and will hold off on relieving himself until he can get to another location.

The crate should be large enough so your dog can get up, walk around in a small circle and lie down. As he gets bigger, you can upgrade to a if needed. Dogs don’t like to lie in their urine (who would??) so they hold off as long as they possibly can.

Keep track of the times each day your puppy drinks, eats and goes to the bathroom throughout the day. Then put together a toilet break schedule based on the times of day your puppy might need to go potty. Potty times usually happen first thing in the morning, after vigorous play, about 30 minutes after eating, and just before bedtime. For very young puppies a few nighttime time trips might be needed if they cannot hold it all night long.

About the author: Alicia Ainsley Summers has been training dogs for over 10 years and is a recognized expert with small dog breeds.

In Dog Training, Don't Forget the Don'ts

Most dog training articles or advice would usually contain the best tips on how to achieve good behaviour and a well-trained dog.  All of them are really informational and useful but most of them concentrate on the Do’s of dog training.  While that is a positive note, providing the Don’ts as well can better help dog owners and trainers.  Here are some of the Don’ts in dog training.

Don’t conduct the training in a place with lots of distraction.  Pets easily get distracted with sights and sounds.  Find a place where the pet can hear and focus on your commands. Your backyard will be a great place to start with.  Public places like parks are ideal for outdoor training but they are usually crowded and noisy.  If you choose a park for training, be sure to find a quiet and less crowded spot.

Don’t exhaust your dog in training.  Pets have a short attention span too.  Unless you can sustain their attention and interest, then maybe you can plan a quite extensive training module.  If you can’t, try to keep the lessons short.  Around 20 to 30 minutes perhaps.  Do not push your dog to his limits.  Try to give him a time to rest in between the training time.

Have a well-trained dog through easy, effective and pet safe ways of training.
