With puppies, there is a great window of opportunity when they have an exceptional ability to absorb new information and experiences. When dogs encounter new experiences at an older age, they have a tendency to be more fearful.
Socializing puppies through puppy play groups, puppy training classes and exposure to new environments is a crucial step in their development. Exposure to a wide range of sounds (car horns, crowds, thunder, etc.), encounters with people and dogs, and places will instill confidence in a puppy and help to avoid fearful and aggressive behavior down the road.
Long walks provide physical and mental stimulus, as your dog is able to explore and sniff out new smells while getting some exercise in there too. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to say who’s walking whom! Dogs pull on the leash for many reasons, as they do not understand not to pull on the leash. Take the lead with a couple of tips to keep everyone walking happily.
The first thing you should know about how to house-train a puppy is the importance of consistency. Teach your puppy to relieve himself in the same location. The more often you take him outside when he has to go, the sooner he’ll learn that he’s always supposed to go outside. Once you become familiar with your puppy’s routine, you’ll start recognizing the signs (circling, sniffing at one spot) that he has to go.
