How to train your dog

You decide to buy a puppy, congratulations! Your first question probably is: "How to train your dog?" You buy a car; you get an owner's manual, same with the computer you are on right now. So where is that dog manual? Well, unfortunately, there isn't one.

Don't worry, it is not as tough as it seems. The key is to be prepared in advance. You should purchase in advance his/her bed, collar, leash, food and water dishes, toys and food. Oh and don't forget lots of newspaper to spread out.

Establish exactly where your puppy will sleep and do not break this routine. I repeat, do not break this routine. No matter how cute they are, they must be moved from bed to bed. Puppies are like babies; they need lots and lots of sleep and are also adorable, just like babies.

Never, ever hit your puppy either. They will not learn from this. For puppy potty training, again a routine time, for example after they eat, as well as a routine location is ideal are vital to training. So to sum how to train your dog, the key is routine.

These rules apply whether you have a Great Dane, Chihuahua, Labrador, Cocker Spaniel, etc. Your puppy will also be teething as well, like a baby. This is a critical area as well while your baby will not chew through your doors and furniture, your puppy will.

The key is to have plenty of chew toys available for them and act immediately when you see any sign of them ready to bite into something they are not supposed to. Tell them no and give them their toy. The good news is that, it is just a phase that will pass over time.
