Ways To Get Your Puppy Trained

Bringing a puppy in to your house is a fun time. There is all of the wet puppy kisses to enjoy, you get to have fun playing with all the new toys and it is just so cute to look at. Until it chews up shoes, the trash, they couch and wets on the floor when you aren’t looking. Sounds like a bit of puppy training is on order! You don’t want to spend a fortune in training your new dog, but you have to do something. What options is there when it comes to training your dog? Luckily, there are lots of ways to teach your dogs how to behave and act properly as they get bigger.

Professional Trainers

Professional trainers don’t have to cost a fortune. Pet stores will usually have several trainers available to teach a variety of classes to dogs at every level of development. These classes can start when the puppy is just six months old and needs to learn how to socialize with other dogs. The classes can also be for older dogs who need to learn how to sit, heel, stay and even obey your commands. There are lots of things you can teach a dog to do. When you don’t have the time to learn how to do it yourself, these classes are the best option. Classes will run on average between 4 to 6 weeks and cost between $50 and $200.

Read a BookWays To Train A Puppy

When you have the time to read and do research on your own, training your dog by yourself is easy to do, if you have a willing dog. Certain dogs are more inclined to be taught, however, so as you begin your research, see if your dog falls in to the easy or the hard category. Once you know you can train your own dog, stock up on books from the library or the book store and begin reading. Train your dog on every command or make up a few of your own. Dogs can be taught to sit, stay, roll over, speak and hundreds of other things.

Another way to teach your dog is by bell training. This doesn’t require a professional and can be done in a matter of hours. Take one large bell or several small bells and place them on a string. Tie the string around the doorknob of the door where the dogs go in and out to the yard. To begin, take their nose and ring the bells and let them outside immediately. Whether they go or not is not the issue. Get them to recognize that if they ring the bell, the door is opened and they go outside. When they act like they need to go outside, put their nose on the bell, ring it and let them out. They will comprehend what ringing the bell means quickly. There are labs who have picked this process up in a matter of twelve hours!
