The whole process of training a puppy involves a lot of time, preparation, patience, and consistency. Usually, pet owners aim to be the most interesting thing in their pets’ eyes in order for them to get the attention of their puppies. We all know that puppies often pay attention to high-pitched noises, more praises, and other interactive items as well as toys and treats. Here are 10 important tips on how to make the puppy training process a fun and exciting experience.

 

1.   1.    Prior to bring home your new puppy, it is best to choose a place for your pet that will serve as his living area. In addition, decide on where you want your pet to do his business. You should choose one place for this to avoid confusing your pet.


2.       2. Keep in mind that puppies are highly impressionable during the first eight to 14 weeks of their age. During this period, you should calmly introduce your puppy to as many situations such as washing up, riding a vehicle with you, wearing his collar, walking around on a leash, meeting new people, and seeing how household appliances operate work.


3.       3. Consistency plays an integral part to ensure successful puppy training. Encourage everyone in the household to use similar commands, instructions, and rules that are related to the training process to prevent confusing your puppy.


4.       4.Teach simple commands such as sit, stop, play, or go one at a time. Doing them all at once can confuse your puppy and will not help you to train him quickly. It is best to use short, 10-minute sessions, and keep the process positive to let your pet know that the process is a good experience.


5.       5. Do not forget to give some rewards when your pet shows good behavior and responds properly to your commands. You may consider giving dog treats such as cheese or small pieces of biscuits. You should praise your pet if he did something good.
