Puppy or Dog - when should training begin?
Like a child, a puppy is new to the world and needs good guidance in order to know how to live happily within the family.
Just by observation, it learns everyday. So when should it begin its official training?
Repetition is a form of learning – the more times he sits before he gets served a meal, the more he learns that these rules apply to him all of the time as an example.
A puppy will want to play more than go to “school”. And though they are so very cute when they do this, keep in mind the future goals, your expectations you have for your dog. Have your dog learn that it can do both – learn and play.
Though there is a dog remedy for every problem, you can avoid a long runway for getting your dog educated if you get it trained around the age of 12 weeks old to 5 months. I have observed this to be a good age (depending on the breed you have) where they are able to concentrate on training. I have trained dogs up to nine years old and so in my viewpoint it is never to late to teach a dog "new tricks" as they say.
Education at this time is important so that they can see that there are rules and life isn’t a day full of tug-of-war with your hands, furniture or shoes!
Once they have grown into adults they become less active and more aware of their living conditions. They are more accustomed to the “routine” day to day business.
Sometimes dogs are not given the opportunity to get their schooling and when they get older the owners cannot handle them. This means it will take a little bit longer to get the dog to pay attention and learn these “new” rules. But don't worry, there is a dog remedy for every problem.
