A new puppy is cute and fun but that fun can quickly turn into destruction without proper training and socializing. This youngster is like a sponge and very impressionable. Your puppy must learn basic obedience, house rules and common respect. This is the time to claim your presence as the pack leader in the home if you expect complete cooperation and harmony. You can consider some special online training assistance or look for a local Rockford-area dog training class as listed below or one closest to your home.
Training a puppy requires so much of your time, consistency and a lot of patience. Training involves many aspects such as basic obedience, anti-barking, housebreaking, anti-chewing, anti-jumping and socializing your pet with other animals and people. As a puppy, you want to work on one technique at a time, usually beginning with housebreaking and moving on to some basic obedience commands. There are some useful online dog training programs that may work best for you and your schedule. You get tips on how to train your dog while working at your own pace and that of your pet.
Some of the online courses require a small fee, less than the typical dog training class, and helps you step-by-step with tips in creating a well-mannered canine companion. If your dog is not trained early on as that young pup that captured your heart from the start, it can become dominant and unruly. An online training course or program may be the answer and assistance you are looking for.
Training your dog does not stop within a few weeks but is a lifelong commitment just as it is with proper health and care. Along with step-by-step instruction, some of the online training courses offer videos, e-books and other resources that you are able to download for further reference.
Whatever training resource you use the one thing to always remember is the power of being positive. Throughout any type of training, never use negativity with your puppy, spank or scold it. The best way to get any kind of required behavior is with praise, love and a small treat. Be sure you have the right tools before starting any training sessions with your dog, such as a crate for housebreaking, a comfortable-fitting collar and leash, small tasty treats and a clicker for clicker training. You can find most everything you need at your local larger pet supply store.
Training is a way to instill rules and respect in your puppy along with creating a strong bond and happy relationship with your pet and canine companion.
