Learning from my first puppy as a kid

My first dog, Robbie, stole my heart when I met him. I still remember when my childhood light up shoes were damaged but I still loved him. The reason was that I was young and incredibly motivated. In addition, I had obtained the dog without the permission of my parents and was therefore very concerned that the dog not make any trouble. I dare say that almost all dogs are potty trained fairly quickly. However, it should be remembered that it may sometimes take up to eight, ten months for some dogs before the room cleanliness is fully consolidated. Room cleanliness is something you have to train. The happier and more energetic you are in this exercise the faster and better it goes. I still remember when my dog pee on my light up shoes destroying their lights.

Things to keep in mind when training your dog

Do not bark on the dog when it gets into it. It does not understand, which in turn will create stress. This stress can give the opposite effect in your exercise to make your dog rumble.

Do not push the dog’s nose into what it’s done. This ancient technique has proven to be completely useless and is just a form of animal wreckage.

Do not be bothered by panic or worry, even though this workout will take a bit of time.

After food and play

Normally, one usually says that the puppy needs to pee immediately after a game or immediately after waking up after a sleep. The puppy needs bait about fifteen, twenty minutes after it has eaten. These times are not hundred percent but it’s usually good times to keep your head.

In this workout, it’s great if you try to raise the puppy in one and the same place to the extent that it works. That way, the puppy will more easily understand what you want. This place should be close to your home and need not be great at all. The place should also be as calm as possible because things around can distract the puppy so that it simply forgets to do away with it.Well on this surface, you should preferably have the puppy loose and just give the puppy time. The best thing is if you just sit down or stand still or neutral. After a while, the puppy will pee or bait. Only then will you give the puppy praise and attention.

Carry out your puppy

Practically practical, it may well be so that you immediately do it after the puppy wakes up. As you raise your puppy, you increase the chance and the possibility that the puppy actually gets out on his own. When you lift the puppy it will not pee. At night I think you should set the clock every few hours to take out the puppy on a short break. If you are good at night time, it is often a relatively short time before the puppy is actually dry. In addition, the puppy is soon sleeping all night. You may also get him a comfy bed at petco or other store.

In this workout to make the puppy room rhyme, I can almost promise that the puppy will, after all, do away with it. It is completely normal and nothing to worry about. Room cleanliness is a process and exercise that takes a little time.

Do not forget that your little puppy is very young!

Tips For Handling Barking Problems

a-fine-dog

Bark! Bark! Bark! It goes on for hours. How do dogs do that? It doesn’t sound like they ever take a breath, but they keep on going. Barking is natural for dogs. They don’t have to learn to bark, they come into this world knowing how to bark all night long.You and your barking dogs are at odds. He wants to bark, and you want him to stop. So, how do you go about convincing a dog that doing what comes naturally for him isn’t acceptable behavior for you?

Reasons Why Your Dog May Bark:

    • Warning You of Danger or Strangers – Most dogs will naturally bark if a stranger comes to the door or walks past your house. Anything that they sense to be a threat to them or you they will bark at because they are trying to warn you. Usually if your dog barks for this reason the tome of his bark will be alot stronger and serious.
    • Attention Seeking – Sometimes your dog will bark to get your attention, they are really trying to say ‘Hey! Look at me!’. They may also whine and make similar, nagging sounds.
    • Boredom – If your dog hasn’t received attention of any kind during the day he may bark as a way to entertain himself. This bark can be quite annoying but also sound kind of sad.
    • Playful – When you are playing with your dog, or if he is playing with other dogs he may bark because he gets carried away. When dogs are having fun some can be quite vocal as a way of expressing their excitement.
    • Fear or Anxiety – If your dog is suffering from separation anxiety if you where to leave him alone for long periods of time, or fear in a thunderstorm, he is likely to bark. This bark is usually high-pitched and whiny. He is once again expressing how he is feeling.
    • Answering To Other Dogs – If your dog hears another dog bark he is likely to respond to him by barking back. This may also start other dogs barking in the street. It’s kind of like a group of dogs having a conversation.

    If you listen carefully to the tone of your dogs bark you can learn to identify the reasons he barks. Then you can start working to solve this problem.

    Tips For Solving Barking Problems

    • Warning Bark – If you hear this kind of bark, it pays to go and see what your dog is barking at. Although if he barks at everybody who walks down the street, not only at strangers you can stop this behaviour by saying a strong ‘No,’ or ‘No Barking!’ when he barks at anyone you don’t want him to. You may need to distract him from barking by calling him, or giving him a command.
    • Attention Seeking Bark – Whenever your dog makes this kind of bark you must ignore him until he stops. If you pat or play with him he will soon learn that all he has to do is make some noise and you will give him what he wants. Instead, when he is not making any noise, give him your attention, pat him, take him for a walk, tell him what a ‘Good Boy,’ he is. If he is happy, then he will have no reason to call for your attention.
    • Boredom – This kind of bark can be stopped by saying a firm ‘No,’ or ‘No Barking!’ and them play or pat him when he is being quiet. He doesn’t understand how busy you may be; he just thinks that you don’t want to spend time with him. So it is very important to find time at least once everyday to give your dog your attention, even for just a moment.
    • Playful Bark – Sometimes your dog can’t help letting out a bark or two when playing. It is natural for him to make noise, so as long as he isn’t constantly barking, this bark is acceptable (you can’t expect him to be silent all day!) But if he is barking too much whilst playing, just use the simple ‘No,’ or ‘No Barking!’ and if he continues to bark, stand really still with your arms folded and don’t look at him until he is quiet, then continue playing with him.
    • Anxiety Bark – If he is scared in a thunderstorm or similar the worst thing you can do is pat him and tell it it’s ‘OK’. This is telling him that it is ok to behave like this, so he will always whine or bark when there is a storm because he thinks that is what you want him to do. Instead, make him feel secure either on his bed or in his kennel and then walk away. It may sound harsh, but it is actual better to do this than sit and comfort him. If you are going to be away from home for a whole day or longer you should give him plenty of toys to play with, a bone or Kong toy with food inside to entertain himself.
    • Answering Other Dogs – If you find he is answering other dogs calls, you can use the firm ‘No Barking!’ and distracting him everytime he does this.

    I hope these tips help you with any barking problems you may have, but just keep in mind the fact that it is okay for your dog to bark once in a while. It is only really a problem if he is barking uncontrollably, or in the middle of the night.

    The biggest tip I can give you to handle barking problems is to stimulate his brain by teaching him tricks. Dog training is benefitial in many of ways; not just as a way of controlling him.

Proper Training Can Keep Your Dog Healthy And Happy

Adopting a dog is a lot of fun, but it can also add a lot of responsibilities to your life. When you become a dog owner, you take on the responsibility to make sure your pet has everything he needs, a safe environment to live in, proper care, and everything he needs for a happy and healthy life! It’s a big step to care for a dog, but you’ll be rewarded with a loving companion.

The first step in providing a good life for your pet and making sure your dog remains safe is to get him trained properly. Believe it or not, many people do not see to this important task and then wonder why their dog jumps up on visitors or won’t listen to their commands. Many a dog has been considered a “bad” pet when all he really needed was the owner to take the time out to train him properly.

If you train your dog properly, not only will he have some cool tricks to show off, but it will also add to his safety. Should your dog be heading off into a dangerous situation, your obedience training will come in handy and you can call him back to your side and safety. A well trained dog Will be well behaved around strangers and the family – an obedient companion. Plus the training process can help define you as the master and act as a bonding experience for you and your pet. You can train a dog on your own, or you can join an obedience training class and get instruction from professionals.

You want to make sure your pet is as healthy as can be and part of dog ownership is to provide your dog with excellent veterinary care. A yearly physical exam should be performed and any vaccinations updated. Also make sure you put him on the right heartworm and flea and tick medications. If you notice a difference in your dogs behavior schedule a vet appointment right away. Even a small change in habits, mood, eating or elimination pattern should be checked by your vet – it could be nothing, but it’s better to be safe than sorry! Have your dog neutered or spayed – they WILL be much happier.

Providing a safe environment for your dog is up to you as the pet owner. Make sure there are places your dog can get stuck in or fall from and there is no sharp objects like nails or pins laying around. Everyone in the family should know not to leave the door open so that your dog can run out in the street. Refrain from feeding your dog “people” food as some of it can be harmful to them. Chocolate, for example, can even be deadly!

Grooming your dog can be a good time to bond with your pet and can also help him stay healthy. Brushing his coat, trimming his nails, cleaning his ears and around the eyes are all part of good dog health. Proper dental care is the most important grooming task you can do for your dog. Bacteria that builds up on the teeth can break away and cause health issues in other organs of the body. Brushing every other day is recommended to keep your dog’s mouth clean and will have the added bonus of giving him fresh breath!

Hopefully you’ll never need to enact it, but you should have a plan for the dog in case of emergency. What if there is a fire or some other disaster? Make sure someone is responsible to get your pet out of the house in case of emergency. It’s not a bad idea to have a designated person that can mind your dog on short notice if you get called out of town on an emergency.

Bringing a dog into your family, you are committing to provide that dog with all the things he needs for a happy and healthy life. Some dogs Can live into their teens if taken care of properly. That’s a long commitment on your part, but the rewards are so great that the commitment pales by comparison.

All Dogs Just Want to Have Fun

The main thing our canine companions think about is fun. They wait for us to come and play, or give them dinner or just a quick pat before we head off in the car. Fun is the one word that revolves around in dogs brains all day, in many different forms. Even when they are ready to go to bed, they are looking forward to a new day of excitement.
