There are some great community resources when you are ready to learn some puppy dog training basics.
You and your puppy dog can enroll in classes at a local vet.
There are even some vets who have classes to teach dog behavior training.
They might also sell the products you need to practice the dog training at home.
Puppy dogs will need to learn appropriate behavior and rely on you to teach them what you both learned in class.
Puppy dog training will include important cues about acceptable behavior and what is not acceptable.
As your puppy dog is rewarded, it will learn what to do, and what not to do.
Puppy dog training is also for fun! You and your puppy dog can work on training to catch, fetch, sit, and stay.
If you and your dog are really ambitious, try an agility course.
Many communities offer agility classes.
Agility courses are made up of obstacles the dog and handler approach together. The obstacles include tunnels weave poles, dog walk, A-frame, seesaw pause table, and several types of jumps.
This training can help your dog when facing new situations that look different and require walking on unusual surfaces.
If classes aren’t available in your area and you have nice size yard, head to the pet store. You can set up your own mini course and let the fun begin!
Not only will you have a happy and active dog, your dog will also have burnt off excess energy that sometimes leads to undesirable behavior.
When your dog is tired, he doesn’t chew, bark, or lick. Instead your dog will rest.
