When to start training a puppy
Many owners, especially beginners, having acquired a pet, are asked many questions. One of them: “When to start training a puppy?”
To answer this question, it is important to understand how the puppy develops.
From 3 to 16 - 20 weeks, the puppy has the most sensitive memory. This means that during this period the baby needs to study as many people, animal and situations as possible. In fact, this is the time that will determine the entire future life of the dog.
So, it’s logical that this age is the answer to the question “When to start training a puppy?”
Remember that training is not just about teaching teams. You help the little girl understand people better. The kid begins to understand when he is praised (and for what), learns to distinguish words and gestures, becomes attached to a person.
Do not forget that puppy training takes place exclusively in the game. Practically any prohibition can be replaced by a team that teaches the baby what to DO in this or that case. For example, instead of jumping the owner who has come back home, you can sit down and get a sea of attention and tasty delicacies.
Do not be afraid to start training your puppy from the first day. If you do everything correctly in the game, you will not deprive him of his childhood. But diversify the puppy’s life and learn better what he loves and what is not very, what he is afraid of and what he is reaching for. Use his ability to think.
Keep in mind that playing behavior develops in a puppy in 3 to 12 weeks. If you miss this period, in the future it will be quite difficult for you to play the dog. And the game is very important in training a dog of any age.
