Love for an animal is an expression of the human tenderness and this is best depicted through the domestication of them. Now among them dogs are the most favorite of humans for centuries. In any part of the world you will come across this culture of domesticating dogs, which is indeed a difficult task. Are you the owner of any dog following this tradition or mulling over to bring it to the residence? If you are considering the subject, have this suggestion from me. You should always opt for a puppy since they can be tamed better.
It will be best if you start the training when the age of puppy is between 6-8 months. This is the time when a puppy starts to respond and therefore it can conform to the rules and regulations set by you. But keep in mind that a puppy remains always in need of special dog training. It is essential to impart the skills that it needs for maintaining a good life. Even if you are novice you have nothing to worry, it can be implemented provided you are consistent and have the zeal to succeed.
How should you embark on the mode of dog training? The first step that should be taken is to establish good habits at the very early stage. This is necessary to make your dog obedient in the later period of life. Remember that a puppy, in the first place, is a wild animal. For this reason it has a number of bad habits that can put a question on your social dignity. One of these is to wee-wee. This is simply undesirable but it can be controlled through an efficient potty training on a regular basis. You should have an effective control on these from the day one so that it will not bring any social disgrace later.
It is also necessary to make your puppy socialize. It is found that several dogs reach their adulthood without communicating with other dogs. This makes one dog arrogant and also aggressive. If you let this happen, it may be problematic for you in the future to control it. You must take your puppy to the nearby park every day where it can contact with other dogs.
It is also the time to start command training. Why is this necessary? Command training is a very important part of the dog training and brings the puppy under the sway. You should also establish yourself as the leader. Are you hearing this for the first time? Dogs do not understand the concept of friendship but only dominance. They are wild animals and like others do follow the laws of the state of nature where the authority of a leader is venerated. You shall have to be the same leader and initiate the command training.
What type of command should you give? You must take care that every command is of the simplest form. They should be clear, unambiguous and also consist of one word only. If not, they may dampen the spirit.
You must practice this daily.
