How to Teach a Puppy
Dog obedience is vital for a happy pet grooming/owner romantic relationship. Learning a few basic pup training tips will have you well on the way to effectively training your puppy.
Puppy Training Foundations
Motivate your pup

Once your pup has discovered a command, give the treat almost every other time, then every third time, always praising enthusiastically. Soon, your puppy is wonderful for compliment and the occasional treat.
Dogs are not spiteful. If your pup is doing something wrong, it probably got the theory it was okay. You have to teach your puppy otherwise.
First, catch him in the act. Canines can?t connect a punishment for an action hours or even minutes ago. Never hit your puppy.

Praise him abundantly for responding.
Remember, pup training does not have to be harsh. With so many different training methods available, choose one which best suits you and your puppy dog. If it doesn?t work, just try another o
