Before you can even get your pet’s attention for training, you have to make sure that he feels secured and safe whenever he is with you.
Thus, if you have just gotten a puppy, you should consider the fact that you have just separated him from his mother. With that, you have to comfort him and situate him in a place where he won’t get hurt, so that he would feel secure.
Positive social interaction
Having positive social interaction is one of the basic needs of dogs, which you need to fulfill, prior to training him.
With that, you have to make sure that you would greet him whenever you meet inside or outside the house. Aside from that, you should also let other members of the family socialize with him, so that he would feel that he belongs.
