Puppy Obedience is Essential
Not long after a puppy is born, the puppy obedience training can begin. The amount of respect and puppy obedience in training is determined by the actual owner you purchased from.
Research has shown that until they are at least three weeks old, puppies are not ready to learn at all. When puppies are born they know only of their mom, that they are hungry and that they need frequent naps. By the 21st to 28th day of a puppies life they begin to leave the blanket and search for somewhere to do their business. Now, dogs begin to gain an awareness of the environment surrounding them, and to respond more directly to external stimuli. Any experiences they have will have a more profound effect on the puppy, so this is the most probable time for shaping up the puppy s manners and behavior in short, the perfect time for them to learn puppy obedience.
Staying Positive Helps Puppies
When you want your pet to do the right thing, the best thing to do is to not use punishment as a form of readiness. Verbal praise along with special treats are more effective. When you are needing to use negative stimuli for your puppy it should be limited to no and block any bad actions from your puppy with using your hands. You should not hit or otherwise hurt a puppy as it is counterproductive.
Puppies should be rewarded with praises and positive affection each time they respond correctly to a command. Puppies must be praised to avoid developing a sense of apathy with regard to obedience. Alternatively, when given praise and caressed soon after a command is correctly executed, your pet will learn that following these things are fun and rewarding. Good feedback and rewards are the surest path to puppy obedience. Positive reinforcement such as praises and treats strengthen the understanding and willingness of the pup to follow and respond to commands.
Persistence Mixed with Great Timing
While puppy training, you should keep in mind that timing is everything. Your movements, actions, and corrections are related to the puppy s ability to understand the lessons and trainings taught to him. It is imperative that pups learn to recognize that the corrections are given as a result of his untoward action and behavior and that it will not happen if only he did what was expected of him.
For instance, a puppy who s chewing on a bone or toy in another room is unlikely to act in response to the command come, and if no one brings him to the trainer, he will learn that the command is the same as ignore.He will find out that come means that he should head for the trainer and that it will also bring in the goodies if the puppy is told to come under controlled situations, like when he s on a leash and is gently pulled toward the trainer then praised.
While instilling puppy obedience training on your pet, keep it simple and do easy exercises one at a time. This will be a much simpler concept for the puppy rather than trying to teach them the whole exercise in a single session. Bring your patience with you when you are training and use positive reinforcement. Slowly your puppy will learn to obey.
