Welcoming a brand new puppy into the family is often a really exciting experience. Dog lovers everywhere will attest to the fact that there is absolutely nothing that can compare to the love and devotion that a dog can offer to its humans. Even so, a puppy will need to learn certain rules that it needs to follow to preserve a harmonious relationship with its people. This article offers a few basic puppy training guidelines to help out brand new puppy owners.
The first thing that needs to be done for a brand new puppy will be to have him checked out by a vet to be sure that its shots are complete and that it is healthy enough to undertake a training program. One of the basic things that dog owners have to know is the fact that dogs thrive on routine. So when it comes to potty training there should only be one designated spot for each particular activity including an eating place, a toilet place, and a sleeping area.
There must be a particular routine of walking, feeding, and training your puppy. Food and water need to be monitored closely since overfeeding it will lead to the untimely requirement to relieve themselves. The very first item to invest in when an individual is giving basic puppy training is an adjustable collar and a three-in-one training leash. Toys and chewable treats should additionally be available consistently.
Puppies learn really quickly, in particular if the training involves proper encouragement and correction techniques. The moment the puppy performs a behavior the right way the person must reward it by giving the puppy a few treats or simply by saying “good boy” or “good girl” while gently stroking its fur. Probably the most important issue here is timing. The reward will need to be provided right after the behavior is carried out in order that the puppy understands that he should repeat that behavior so as to get a reward. People will need to also be firm when it comes to basic puppy training. Make sure you just offer treats whenever a behavior is done correctly and not too much, for example when it offers you that adorable puppy look.
When it comes to house training one of the most preferred methods is paper training. That is accomplished by spreading old newspaper in the locations in which the puppy usually relieves itself. For the first few times the puppy will surely miss the spot but if the human keeps a soiled newspaper in the chosen potty location the puppy will have the inclination to sniff out the smell and follow it. It will then realize that this specific spot is where it needs to do its business.
People will need to understand that it will take awhile for puppies to fully grasp the rules in the house. So plenty of patience and commitment is required to properly train it. Humans simply need to stretch their patience out a little more and sooner or later the efforts will pay off.

If you are thinking of owning a pet dog then this article would be the best guide which you would ever find over the internet. This article will point on some major points which need to be considered in the training of the dog.
If you purchase a puppy than you would need to pay special attention to it, the first 3 to 4 weeks of the puppy are the ones in which it learns a lot. It is during this period that you need to make sure that dog learns each and every rule of your house; but before you start the training or even take the puppy home it would be best that you visit a vet and have the puppy inspected. There are many other things you would need to do once you have a puppy in your home, like purchasing dog shampoo, collars of different types and many other things. As far as collars are concerned they are either for wear or are for training; you must keep in mind that a training collar is only to be worn during training or the dog might get seriously hurt.
As the puppy is rather new at your place it would be best that you pay attention to it, so that it feels like a part of the family, this case is same even if you own a proper dog. The first few weeks of a new dog in your place would be very important in forming the bond between the family and the dog; neglecting at this stage might result in an ill behaved dog who would bark and all.
There are many ways in which one can train a dog and a normal person just cannot overlook all of them, in order to have a properly trained dog it would be best that you take advice of a professional; you could even sign up to Dove Cresswell’s online Dog training programs. These programs would provide you with e-books but as many people do not like to read, videos are available as well which would be featuring Dove Cresswell who would teach and guide you through the stages of dog training step by step.
For those who do not know who Dove Cresswell is, well she is one of the best women dog trainers which any one could come across, she has quite some experience in training dogs for movies, soaps and even advertisements.

Do you want your German Shepherd to heel predictably, sit motionlessly or stay on your direction? Obedience training for your German Shepherd puppy lets you to control your pet verbally instead of by force. When you obedience train, you will also be able to end your dogs unwanted but typical habits such as biting, chewing, jumping or barking. You can attend an obedience training class or do your training at home with a training DVD.
Note that these outcomes depend on you. How you act will drive the changes in your puppy’s behavior. Your puppy’s natural disposition has a role too, but you are the most important participant in successful obedience training.
There are specific training phrases you need to learn to train your puppy. When you’re training your puppy, your instruction must to be consistent. Your dog will learn to respond to simple instructions. Treats are a good motivator.
Besides using the same directions each time, you must learn to respond to inappropriate behavior. With young dogs, correction is done by restating the instruction. Not giving the puppy a treat can be correction enough. Do not be aggressive when teaching a young dog in obedience.
This is what your German Shepherd puppy ought to learn in obedience training. You can start obedience training as soon as your pet is weaned. These commands are appropriate for puppies between two and four months old.
“Focus” – Make eye contact and keep watching you
“Sit” – The puppy’s bottom is on the ground and its eyes are on you
“Stand” – Standing on the ground and not up on its hind legs
“Stay” – Being still in the current pose until released verbally
“Down” – Laying down with head up and paying attention
“Come” – Move immediately to the trainer
“OK” – Relax
“No” – Cease doing what it is doing
This is a lot to be taught so do not try to teach your dog too many commands at once. Teach your pet a couple of commands at a time. It is best to master each instruction before trying to add more.
When your puppy has learned the basic instructions, it is time to go on to the next level. These commands are not as simple to teach. It will be far easier if you get instruction on how to teach these skills to your pet.
* “Go” – Walk in the direction where you point
* “Stop” – Stop and wait
* “Off” – Get down from jumping
* “Back” – Move back
* “Heel” – Stand at and walk at the trainers heel
You can teach your pup the commands below during house training a puppy or crate training, and when you are correcting puppy biting.
* “Potty” – Go potty here
* “Kennel up” – Get in the crate
* “Gentle” – Pick up something in its mouth without nipping the person holding it
* “No bite” – Do not bite
* “Drop” – Let go of an object and step away
* “Leave it” – Move the dogs attention back to you from another dog, person or object.
Your dog should continue to learn new skills. Puppies are naturally active and curious, and they enjoy the attention you give them when training. You can continue beyond obedience training your dog. Your pup can learn tricks like how to play dead, how to speak, and more. If you focus on obedience training a puppy, your puppy will have fun, and you can be proud of your well trained dog.

Small Dog Training.
The reason why dog lovers hold the preconceived view that small breed dogs are more challenging to train than their medium sized or larger breed counterparts, I will never be able to figure out. Small dog training should not pose a problem.
Small dog training, is in no way different from training a puppy of any other sized breed. Whilst training any puppy will have its peculiarities, according to its breed, most all other aspects remain exactly the same, and the method to training the puppy should stay the same, not withstanding its size.
However, I will allow myself to be corrected here, and admit, that small dog training may pose complications in two arenas, (1) Aggression and (2) Puppy Crate Training. Even so, this is not because the fact that it is a small breed dog, but ten times out of ten, because of the owner.
If a small breed puppy is aggressive and is hard to train, or if a smaller breed dog cannot be toilet trained or poses complications in being toilet trained, it is the owner who has unwittingly contributed to this state of affairs. Let us analyze how and why.
Small dogs are enjoyed because they are adorable, they are like dolls. Owners enjoy having their dog sit on their laps. This particular indulgence is where the complication gets going. The basic aggressive trait of the dog, is to take ownership over its domain, its food, even its leader; all puppies strive to be the alpha dog.
It is the ruthless streak in the canine animal that induces it to jump on to the lap of its owner, especially when there are plenty of persons sitting in the room.
This is a outright act of ruthlessness. Instead of chastising and checking the dog, every owner with the exception of none, would hug the pooch, although it jumped on to their lap without being called, promoting the aggressive streak in the pup. By doing this, the owner has given into the puppy’s basic instinct to be the alpha dog.
Growling and getting upset at a much bigger dog is another blatant act of aggression. To the owner, and even the onlookers, this is regarded as cute, because one dog is little while the other is big. Most owners pet and pat the dog, instead of checking it, when it exhibits this aggression towards a larger dog.
The above mentioned are but illustrations as to why smaller breed dogs are aggressive, and definitely not because small dog training is problematic.
Owners tend to haul their small dogs around where ever they go, even at home and that renders it impossible to toilet train them.
It is as a reflex action, that the owners of miniature breed dogs carries the animal, to the area where the puppy should go to the bathroom, and then carries it back into the house.
It is this practice of carrying the puppy to its appointed toilet area that is the cause of all roadblocks. In addition, since the puppy, is as a rule, carried around all the time, it has no way of it suggesting to, or warning the owner that it has to poop.
Small dog training, commences, with treating the dog as any other medium sized or larger sized dog. They have to be moved to their potty area on a leash. If owners avoid carrying their tiny breed dogs they would have no troubles in training them.
Puppy crate training, is the most interesting part of canine training, and so it must be, even in Small Dog Training.

If your dog is fond of garden-digging, there are a variety of explanations for that.There are plenty of interesting sights and smells in a garden.Plantings, with the standard manure used with them, pose very curious smells to dogs.A selection of herbs and flowers carry various scents through the air and can get your dog to dig.There are also quite a number of different things in the garden.Plants for one can certainly arouse a dog’s curiousity.If this is your case, make use of a sprinkler to help.
When your dog is prepping to dig in the garden, turn the tap on to sprinkle him.The dog must associatee the water with the spray and not you.Seeing you having anything to do with the water spray could only make him stop digging when you’re there to notice.If he associates the spraying with the garden wanting him off, he won’t dig when the sprinkler is around.
If he still digs despite this, allow him a spot to dig in the garden.Give your dog a digging area like you give a child a sandbox.Get some bones or treats and bury these on the assigned digging spot to encourage your dog to dig there only.Begin by burying bones only halfway through; let your dog see the other half and have him dig the treat up.Encourage this behavior by acting excited and telling your dog to dig the buried treasure up.If he starts digging outside of the area, entice him back there.

Some types of dog beds might more properly be called dog bedding, because they straddle the categories of bed and bedding. On the one side, you have obvious bedding like throws or blankets, and on the other there are those items that have pretty clearly defined parameters as beds. But in between, you’ll find the sorts of dog supplies that pull in some qualities from both categories, either adding interesting accessories or making the bed itself into something whose shape can change depending on the need.
Basic puppy training strategies involves providing proper sleeping quarters, facilites and beds for the family dog. Goof sleep is a very important part of a dogs healthy make up.
Some bedding for dogs is as simple as a bunch of blankets. If that’s the sort of bed your dog likes, then you can get these at places like the Salvation Army or other second hand stores. You don’t necessarily have to get elaborate with them, especially if you use them mainly to line the dog’s crate or to cover furniture. Yet many websites or stores where there are dog beds for sale will also have blankets, throws, and variations on them, designed especially for your dog. Some specially created blankets may have inserts for heating pads, or might be designed to wrap and towel off the dog after a bath.
But you can also buy custom dog beds that sit halfway between the definition of beds and dog bedding. These can come in fairly flat mat form, but then you have a product like the Faux Fur Trundle Bed, found at places like the Glamour Dog (www.glamourdog.com) website. This is a pet bed that is close to sphere-shaped, with a large hole in the top that allows your dog to burrow inside to snuggle and sleep if it wants, making itself a little nest. Or the bed can be flattened out so the dog can sleep on top of a plush double layer.
Dog bedding may be as simple as a couple of blankets laid down as a liner in a dog crate bed, or as elaborate as the material in covers designed by www.tuffies.com, which wick moisture away to help keep the dog dry. The bedding can be a pillow that serves as a mattress in a doggie Murphy bed or a canopy bed. The line between bed, bedding and accessories isn’t always clear. But the important thing is that whatever you buy as the basic bed, and whatever you add to it afterward, will make your dog comfortable.

Stop Dog From Biting.
Do you have a dog that bites? Then it is time you put took measures to stop dog from biting.
There is great danger in allowing it to continue, just because you feel it is only nipping. Playful nipping will eventually, and will always, turn into serious and dangerous biting.
No dog owner should have a dog that may bite children, the guests or anyone that might come to their home. If your pet has a biting problem then there are ways to stop dog from biting.
Not addressing the problem of your dog biting will definitely end up with both, your dog and you in serious trouble.
If your dog is prone to biting and manages to get out alone, it can bite a child or even an adult passing on the street, and if the bite causes serious damage your dog could be put down as a dangerous animal, and you end up being sued for damages.
In order to prevent such things happening to other people, you and your dog, the only thing to do is to learn how to stop dog from biting.
Biting is a negative behavior pattern in dogs and is best dealt with when the dog is just a pup. All puppies love to chew, so the first thing to have is an ample supply of chew toys around. This works a long way into preventing a puppy trying to mouth anything and everything it can place its jaws around, because mouthing is the start of all biting problems.
If your dog was long enough with its litter it would have been taught by its mother, and litter mates, how to inhibit its biting urges and tendencies.
As a puppy, if a dog bites its mother, the mother will yelp. The puppy is surprised and alarmed at the reaction, and when he bites her the second time his mother would yelp louder and even growl at the puppy as she turns away from him, ignoring the biting puppy.
This is how puppies get the message that they cannot use that pressure with their jaws and teeth, and if the puppy bites the mother the third time his mother will turn on him aggressively. So the puppy begins to learn from its mother and elders in the social pack that biting is not an acceptable behavior.
Since we have removed the puppy from this natural training environment, we can do the same thing its mother does to stop dog from biting.
The way us humans could implement this training would be to yelp in a high-pitched voice every time the puppy tries to nip or bite any part of our body or even clothing.
A little bit of exaggeration would help to get the point across. If the biting continues, start ignoring the puppy after the ‘yelp’ and refuse to play with it.
The dog will soon realize that biting leads to all the fun and affection being stopped and will realize that biting is not an acceptable behavior pattern.
Another way to stop dog from biting is to use a muzzle. It may sound a bit harsh or extreme, but it is not. A muzzle will not hurt the dog in any way. It just prevents it from opening its mouth wide enough to bite anything. The dog will soon realize why the muzzle is on and will learn.
Every dog owner must remember that a dog that bites is one of the most serious dog problems that a any dog owner could be plagued with. Play biting can lead to real serious biting and steps to stop dog from biting must be taken before the unthinkable happens.
