Introducing Your Puppy To Training Early

If you introduce your puppy to training early on in life, they will accept what they are told much easier than trying to train them when they are an adult dog. When you bring home a puppy, the first week is crucial to lay some groundwork for puppy training. There a few simple things you can do to ensure a great introduction to your home.

Puppy Training Tips

House Training
House training a new puppy is a lot easier than you think. To do this, simply line your puppy's pen with plenty of newspaper. When they have to go to the bathroom, they have no choice but to do it on newspaper. When you take the puppy out of the pen, put a ton of newspaper in an area of the room. It helps if you remove the pen and just put newspaper where it was. Your new puppy will quickly learn that the best place to do their business is on the newspaper.

Jumping Up
The easiest way to teach a puppy that jumping up is a bad thing is to say "Off!" Make sure you do not yell at the puppy violently when you say this. After you firmly state this command, simply grab a toy, and show it to the puppy.

General Behavior
Early on, it is important that you do not let your puppy do things that you don't want it to do in the future. If your puppy begins to chew on furniture, simply say the "Off!" command. Again, reward the puppy with a toy as soon as possible

Positive Reinforcement
When your puppy is behaving appropriately, make sure to reward it with a lot of love. You can pet your puppy and speak in a higher than normal tone to signify that you approve of their action.
