Free Training Tips to Help With Your Puppy Command Training Efforts
Using these tips during your basic puppy command training should help move your training progress along quite smoothly:
The two most important words your puppy will learn is "puppy's name" and the word "no". "No" means - "stop what you are doing".
Never scold or punish your dog using its name. Your puppy's name should always be associated with positive associations.
Carry small puppy treats in a waist pouch for easy access for praising and rewarding during any puppy training sessions.
Allow puppy to burn off some excess energy before any "controlled" walks. Play with puppy in your backyard first.
When teaching basic commands, concentrate on one command during each session. A puppy's attention span is very short. So keep it fun and short!.
Begin all puppy training on leash in the home first - a family room or basement will suffice.
Practice training outdoors on leash to experience distractions only when finally comfortable with puppy's attention during indoor training.
Practice and develop one command at time using the same appropriate word preceded by your puppy's name: "Dogname , Sit".
Do NOT let your dog eliminate anywhere they choose. This type of behavior is also known as a "leader" behavior, and could lead to territorial behavior.
Before every training session, take puppy outdoors to eliminate first to ensure puppy will not be distracted from having "to go".
Be consistent. Always use the same word with each command. Avoid any confusion.
Be patient, persistent and praise after each successful training session.
Lastly, after each training session, play with your dog even if for a few minutes!
