Wakefield, WY (PRWEB) January 18, 2006 -–
Each year, thousands of households across the globe take in a new animal, a dog; traditionally titled “man’s best friend.” Being the perfect acquaintance, dogs typically fill the void for individuals living in a single household or bring joy and companionship to children.
While dogs may eventually become the perfect acquaintance, they certainly aren’t born that way. New born puppies are usually an inconsiderate burden, keeping their owners awake at night, claiming the carpet as their restroom, and more. For these reasons (and many others), strong emphasis needs to be put on training puppies as early as possible so that they may turn into well-behaved, well-trained adult dogs.
Training a puppy takes a considerable amount of time and hard work, which may or may not lead to quick results. It’s important to always be firm when your dog does something negative, but it’s as equally important to not make your dog fear you. A scared puppy has the potential to turn into an aggressive dog later in its lifetime. And, while you may be upset over your dog keeping you awake the entire previous night, grudges are not effective.
While disciplining your pet it’s important when it does something negative, it’s also important to reward them with a treat when they do something right. Dogs are very eager to please and they need your positive reinforcement – such as a treat or high praise.
