It can be quite overwhelming to train a dog. Of course obedience training is a necessity if you want a well-adapted and well-behaved dog. It is always in your best interest — and that of your pet — to rely only on positive approaches to training.
Dog training requires patience and consistency. Make sure some time is set aside every day for training your dog. The best amount of time for training your dog is approximately fifteen minutes. Any longer could cause them to become bored.
When crate training your new puppy, take it in small manageable steps so the animal can become accustomed to the changes easily. If your dog seems comfortable inside the crate when the door is open, shut it and feed them a treat.
Only keep the gate closed for short periods of time at first and increase time slowly. If the dog doesn’t like it, slow the process.
Make sure to give your puppy plenty of toys that are okay to chew, so that he isn’t tempted to chew other things that aren’t okay to chew.
Replace the tasty item you do not want chewed with a designated chew toy. If painful teething is the problem, let the puppy chew on a wet washcloth that has been frozen.
