It's important to start training your dog as soon (and young) as possible!
We know that dog training for first time owners (even experienced dog owners with stubborn breeds have problems!) can be quite a daunting task, so we've put together some basic steps for you to take.
Basics of Dog Training
- Start obedience training your dog first.
Obedience training comes first because that covers the very basics of dog training once you've brought your puppy home - from naming them, to setting home rules and basic dog commands to begin with, as well as housebreaking your dog.
- Dog food training is next.
This works hand in hand with obedience training your dog - some dogs live for food, and as such, dog food training will work exceptionally well for a dog like that.
However, if you observe that your dog is not food motivated, you can also try some dog agility training - which can work very well on super active dogs!
- Lastly, Crate training your dog.
Crate training is last on the list because typically, most owners (like me) tend to just have a few dog beds lying around for them to sleep, or to just sleep on our beds.
However, a crate can be a great place for dogs to call their own - a little 'den' replica of their former lives that gives them a secure space to do whatever they want.
Drape a towel over the crate, and let the dog training begin!
