Methods that you use for training your puppy are a vital skill for you and your puppy.  It is significant to teach your puppy accurate socialization and obedience this will be helpful in having an untrained dog.  Each puppy is individuals and you need to recognize this when training your puppy nonetheless finding the right methods that best fits the need of your dog will help you be successful in training.

First, thing you need to know is that training your puppy requires time and commitment. Some puppies are by nature with aggressive or anti-social behavior.  If you happen to have a puppy like this your main tool will be patience’s and you have to continue to reinforce the training even when your puppy keeps making mistakes.  It is important to take in consideration the dog’s age.  Puppies and younger dogs are easier trained then an older dog.  In spite of your older dogs behavioral problems they can be corrected with proper strategies. 

You should start training your puppy at 6 – 8 week.  The age of your puppy will decide which training method is most suitable. 

First, let your puppy get use to his new environment.  House training starts with methods such as crate training, potty training and understanding basic commands.  Your puppy should understand commands such as; sit, come, and stay.  These commands are vital.  They serve as your puppy’s basis training and will guarantee the safety of your dog in public settings.


Another important element in puppy training is socialization.  If your dog is correctly socialized they will be able to interact with other humans and animals without being scared or feel they need to use forceful behavior.  Otherwise, it might be necessary to confine your dog to the house all the time for his safety and others.  During the first 3 months of a puppies life is important for teaching socialization skills afterwards it is vital to reinforce and improve these skills. 

Leash training and obedience training is very important in training your puppy to correct behavior.  Make sure that your puppy is fitted properly with a collar and then get him familiar with a leash.  The collar should fit snug but not tightly.  Training your puppy to a leash will permit the puppy to walk in outside settings.  Obedience training will teach your puppy to react to commands and prevent the puppy from using negative behavior. 

Some basic tips can help the success of most puppy training methods.  You must use positive reinforcement when training your puppy.  When your puppy follows commands reward him with praise or treats.  Positive reinforcement can help the puppy to better understand the training.  Starting your training in a quiet environment free from distractions can make the training easier on you as well as your puppy.


House breaking your puppy will require patience and understanding to become successful.   Common mistake made by pet owners is scolding their puppies when it is too late.  Too late means when you did not catch him in the act.  If you yell or scold your puppy after the fact will only confuse him.  If your puppy makes a mess and you did not catch him in the act just simply clean up the mess without making a fuss.  If you do catch him in the act distract him with a loud “NO” and quickly take him outside while he is in the middle of eliminating.  Then, after he has done his business in the correct area praise him.


Don’t rub your puppy’s nose in his mess. Not only is this cruel it may also cause him to become afraid of eliminating in front of you.  This will cause problems he will still eliminate in the house but, will try to hide to do it.  This could also cause him to eat his mess in fear of how you will react. 

Housebreaking your puppy does not have to have headaches if you go about it in the right way.  Patience, timing and consistency are the keys to successfully house breaking your puppy.  Lots of praises and rewards and good attitude will go along ways.
