House Training A Puppy
Your quest to learning to train a puppy needs you to be organized and take copious amounts of notes. If that sounds a little too simple, don’t glaze over and ignore it, as it’s a very useful record of what has worked, and look to teach your puppy new tricks as he gets older. These notes show exactly what works and how your puppy responds to various techniques, and what areas either need more attention or a different approach. No matter what you do in life – the fundamentals are the same. And house training a puppy is no different – spending time planning increases the odds of doing things right otherwise you’ll just be spinning your wheels – and getting nowhere.
Organizing your plan of attack is one of the first things you need to consider when you start thinking about house training a puppy, as it will help a great deal in moving your puppy from his familiar surroundings to the new and strange world you are providing for him. It can be disconcerting for a young pup when his mother and littermates suddenly disappear, and then is suddenly moved to strange and confusing habitat with a whole range of new and unknown faces and scents.
These emotions don’t just apply to young puppies. Fully grown dogs are not immune to bouts of anxiety caused by all the changes that seem to be taking place in their lives. You need to be constantly reassuring your dog when you move him to a new home; all he knows is that he is in a strange and somewhat frightening place.
If it is at all do-able, take a few trips to meet your pup while he’s still at his “old place”. Doing this will help break the ice between you both and help him get used to you. So, when you get round to, training your puppy the familiarity between you will result in a quicker learning experience. I appreciate this is not always possible so, try taking home something from the current owner that the puppy is familiar with – like a blanket or toy of some kind or anything that will help the dog adjust to his new surroundings and adjust to his new home.
Without doubt, the ideal time to bring home a new dog or puppy is any time when you’ll be able to spend a few full days at home with him. A holiday period is perfect. But you do need to be at home with your dog during the holidays. The more time you can spend with in these first few days the better. Spending lots of time with him when he moves in will pay dividends in building your relationshipand help the newcomer get over his homesickness blues.
Just as parents prepare for the arrival of a new baby by creating an environment to satisfy the baby’s needs and requirements, training a puppy needs to be given the attention to detail. Having a different number of legs shouldn’t mean you get less priority.
Section off a specific area for your new pup when he moves in. This will help him settle in, because this will make house training your puppy much easier as well because any accidents are easier to clean off hard floors. Kitchens are great places because we spend a lot of our time in these rooms, as this helps your puppy get accustomed to his new home.
Don’t forget that a young puppy is accustomed to the companionship of his littermates. Without them, he will be lonely so you will need to take their place at least for a few days. But equally important – you can’t let him get away with murder for a couple of days, then try to train him out of those habits once your training routine begins. Puppy potty training realistically starts the same day that he becomes a member of your family.
Your puppy will get mixed signals if he isn’t being taught the rules right away, for the simple reason that he needs consistency to fully understand what is expected of him. The processes we use in training a puppy work well for puppies and fully grown dogs too. Being homesick and lonely is not just a puppy issue.When you bring a new dog home he or she will need to learn the rules from the start. All dogs need discipline and affection in equal amounts. However, all your work will pay dividends in the future.
