Importance of Proper Behavior Training for Puppies

When you got your new puppy, he/she didn’t come with a puppy training guide on good behavior. Many breeders generally introduce puppies to some potty training, but when it comes to behavior, the dog training is up to you. The good news puppies are typically quick to learn, so the sooner you talk to a puppy training vet, the better.  Early behavior training ensures you will have a happy relationship with your dog and that he that interacts well with other animals and people.

Importance of Proper Behavior Training for Puppies

When to Start Behavior Training

The critical period for puppy training starts at about 3 weeks of age and typically ends about 12 weeks of age, so if you brought your puppy home at 8 weeks, you have about one month to begin training your puppy by exposing him to places, people, noises, and activities. If you are not sure about how to train your puppy, talk with your Madisonville vet for suggestions about obedience training. Although obedience training doesn’t necessarily solve all behavior problems, it is a good foundation for solving many problems, such as how to stay, sit or get off the furniture.

Raising Your Puppy to Become a Happy, Well-Behaved Dog

Dogs are excellent pets; however, as puppies, they need the proper behavior training in order to become social and obedient. Without the proper training early on, they will display their natural instincts, which often include barking excessively, fighting other animals and destroying your belongings. With a little patience and guidance from your veterinarian in Madisonville, your puppy can grow to be a healthy and well-behaved pet. As a new puppy owner, it’s common to have questions about training your puppy and the best place to get advice is from your veterinarian.
