Puppy training tips are mostly common sense but a few tips are great to have. A big thing to remember here is the age of your puppy. All the training in the world will not sink in for your puppy if it is very complicated. Starting with the basics like the puppy learning their name and responding to you. This can be done with your puppy at play time with you. Puppy's are just baby's and so small fun filled play sessions work well.
As early as possible you will want your puppy potty trained, whatever methods you use keep consistent. Puppy needs to go to the potty area, at first ten times a day. While you are praising him for using the right area you can use his name, in this way you are doing both at the same time. Puppy's love praise, so the more praise they get for the right behavior, they quickly learn that this is a great, and easy, way to get praise from you. Giving your new puppy lots of new situations help's your puppy grow up into a well adjusted dog that can cope with situations as they arise. By this I do not mean take your puppy on to a main road straight away, with lots of loud traffic but to build up the experience over time.
Helping your puppy to cope with the different situation they may encounter. If they are likely to meet up with children, well let's face it in a park they are over time going to meet children. Introduce your puppy to children early on. Maybe you have relatives that use a wheelchair, again introduce this early for the dog, in this way you build up the puppy's ability to cope. This reduces any problems you may have later. Basic lead work is a good area to work on as well. Allowing your puppy to get used to a lead and collar.
You are not expecting heel work at this point, but you are expecting the introduction of the collar and lead. A tip here is for you to get the dog using the lead while you are out and not carrying the puppy around. Carry you puppy can become a bad habit, and if you have a large dog it is soon something you would rather not be doing. If you have a car then the introduction of puppy to the car should be started. Think about car safety and if you wish to use a dog seat belt or maybe a crate in the car.
Some puppy's like children can get car sick, if this happens, do not shout or hit the puppy, it really cannot help what has happened. This is why a set aside area in the car can work really well, you then only have the mess in that place. If your puppy is car sick then you need to think about shorter journeys and building up trips as the dog gets used to traveling in the car.
Think about your puppy and what you want from their training and then sort out the program you wish to follow, soon you will have a puppy training the way that you want.
