Dogs & Puppies Trainers -
Find the Best Dog Trainers Near You by Zip

  • You can start training your puppy as early as 8 weeks of age. The earlier you start, the more quickly your puppy will adapt to the approach and soon will begin to respond to your command. When you take on the task of puppy training, keep in mind that puppies are full of energy and they are just learning how to act. This means that training may take some time and a little extra patience on your part, but your puppy will thank you for it.


    When they are little, pups love to chew on anything and this includes your shoe or pants leg. If you want to deter this action, gently push down on your puppy’s backside and say “no”. Your puppy will soon learn that this is not acceptable and will mature into a dog that knows not to roughhouse with you.


    All puppies love to play and it’s important that you spend time with them and enjoy their cute little habits and hilarious actions. While playing, it’s important to realize that the way you interact with your puppy now will have an impact on how he/she behaves with you in later years. Never play in a way that would make your puppy want to compete with humans for an object, such as tugging on a rope, which teaches your puppy aggression. Instead, playing fetch or letting your puppy chase you will be a fun way of puppy training that will show your pet how to play with people and not against them.
