Training is a big deal, and it’s something everyone must learn. But how should you not train your dog or pup? For one, you don’t want to start as soon as the pup gets home. Wait until they are at least twelve weeks and used to the home. An eight-week-old puppy is completely capable of learning obedience training the moment they walk into their new home. Strangely, most owners fail to recognize this and wait, think it’s not a good idea. Secondly, failing to create a den. Dogs, and their ancestors’ wolves are very denning animals and like the idea of caves and secure places. Having a closet or an OPEN crate can create a puppy less afraid and more comfortable. It is can take advantage of the dogs desire to its sleeping area. Now with positive re-enforcement and consistency, off you both go!
