Importance of Proper Behavior Training for Puppies
Apr 18, 2018
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.
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.
