How to Train Your Puppy: New Owner's Essential Guide on Training a Puppy


Getting a new puppy is a fun and interesting time. You probably went to a breeder or pet store or maybe just saw an ad on the Internet or the newspaper,for puppies,and decided just to check it out. Before you knew it those little eyes and fluffy puppy fur had your heart melting and you were headed home with him or her in your arms. If you are like most new pet owners you had visions of playing fetch with your dog,of watching him frolic at the lake,and of cuddling up on cold nights.

However,you probably failed to realize that the behaviors you dream of in a dog do not come naturally. In fact,the more natural behaviors for most puppies include lovely little things like chewing up your favorite shoes,barking every second of the day,and peeing wherever they are when the mood strikes them. These behaviors might seem cute at first,or even manageable but,if left unchecked they can lead to a very bad adult dog.

The problem with puppies that are not trained is that they grow into untrained dogs. An untrained dog can be a nuisance. All of that cute little yipping can quickly become loud barking that keeps you and your neighbors up for nights on end. The little teeth marks in your shoes can turn into destroyed furniture and a destroyed home before you know it. Likewise,those cute little puppy poops are not so cute when the dog is 75 pounds and has the excrement to match.

Untrained dogs can also be very dangerous. All dogs can bite. It is in their nature to defend with everything they have,including their teeth. You have to teach your dog not to use their teeth so that no one winds up hurt,at least not when they are playing with them. While we all expect our dog to protect us in a worst-case scenario situation,you should train your dog to be non-confrontational. Dogs that pose a danger to the community are at risk of being put down.

In addition dogs that are problematic for any of the reasons listed above often wind up homeless. People grow tired of dogs that never grow up,and then they take those dogs to the shelter. We all know how sad life can be for a shelter dog and the end that many of those dogs meet. If you really love your new puppy and intent to have a long and happy life with it,train her. By training your dog you teach her how to live in your world and increase the likelihood that your life together will be long and happy for the both of you.
