Raising a dog can bring you a lot of joy and love into your life. It can be tough work when you bring home a puppy. The puppy will need plenty of training. Follow the tips presented here in a consistent manner to train your dog quickly and well.
Create a calm environment whenever you enter the room the dog is in. Play time is great, but your dog needs to learn to stay calm as his master enters the room. To help your dog learn this behavior, ignore him when you enter the room. after you have been in there a few minutes, acknowledge him.
Avoid reinforcing negative behavior. This means denying your dog treats and praise whenever it misbehaves. For instance, don’t pat your dog on the head if it’s jumping up on you.
Make sure food and outside time are scheduled to help break your dog into being an inside dog. This makes it clear to your dog that he has to go outside and poop now, instead of stinking up your carpet. This helps your puppy learn to “hold it” for a bit, until he knows it’s time to go out and will help save you money on carpet cleaning.

Exercise your dog at least an hour everyday in addition to its regular potty breaks outside. Keeping a dog healthy with exercise allows for more efficient training sessions in the future. When your dog is exercised, he is also happy.
If you are leash training a puppy, put the collar on him in advance of training. The pup must become accustomed to wearing the collar in order for you to use its leash. It is also necessary for hanging ID tags.
Teach your dog right and wrong for all instances. Everyone who lives with your dog will have to undertake the same behavior for him to learn from your training. It can erase what you have accomplished.
Training should be fun for your dog. Try not to make training sessions any longer than 15 minutes. That will keep his attention. Reward your dog generously, when warranted. Make sure you shower praise on your dog when they do well. If your dog perceives training as fun, he will listen to you more!
Stop your pup from chewing on an object that they shouldn’t be if you catch them doing that. This will teach him what is appropriate to chew, so that he’ll be less likely to chew on your belongings when you’re not around.
