Getting a new puppy is exciting, but training them can be a challenge. Here is Tip #1 for training puppies.
1. Consistency Builds Habit
When you get a new dog, you may consider training him at home. It’s a great way to get to know each other and helps establish good habits in your new shared living space. A dog who naturally respects you as the leader will enjoy the learning process, too, even as you teach him what’s not allowed in and out of the house. Before you begin training a puppy, familiarize yourself with the different methods available. Be sure to plan out a training program and stick with it through the trial and error. Dogs are creatures of habit, and the more consistent you are with training, the more they will be in return.
