How to house train puppies

Awwwwww……’s so cute, cuddly, sweet, little, fuzzy, precious!! Although such may be true, the fact is that your puppy also poses some very REAL challenges. To put matters into perspective, a puppy is a living, breathing bundle of variety. As with any living thing, a puppy has a mind of its own and with that mind it is prone to independent thinking. For the owner, some of the behavior that results from the independent thinker-the puppy- can be favorably amusing. However, some of the behavior, on the opposite end of the spectrum, can be frustrating, annoying, and exhausting.

When purchasing your puppy, you no doubt envisioned a life filled with years of joy, countless hours of fun, loving companionship, and numerous moments of bonding-pleasantries, pleasantries, pleasantries! No doubt, in time, you received an undeniable knock at the front door, better known as a REALITY CHECK.

While your puppy has no doubt been the well-packaged bundle of excitement and pleasure that you desired, your puppy has also been a source of irritation at times. The goal of every responsible pet owner should be to enable their pet to live its best life possible; thereby, creating an environment in which a pet can thrive and evolve into a civil and temperamentally sound member of both a family and a society. Responsible puppy ownership is primarily about addressing and supplying the constant needs of a puppy in a manner that promotes the internal and external well-being of the canine as it grows. A balanced life for the owner and the pet is what leads to a satisfying life-long bond with your canine companion.

While a puppy is young and tender, it is an ideal time to introduce a word, a concept, a practice hat makes an environment more civil and more peaceable-TRAINING. Through training, you feed an innate desire within your puppy to please its caring owner. A puppy, like children, solicits affectionate attention, commendation, and constant validation of love. A puppy wants to know that it creates happiness in your life. It is a commonly accepted opinion that one of the greatest joys in life is derived from having children that are well disciplined and respects authority. The same principle applies to owning a puppy. Having a well-trained canine companion will add an enjoyment to virtually any environment. Remember, “mans best friend” is loyal and loyalty is a quality that is driven by obedience which can only be achieved through proper canine training.

Canine puppy training is a form of communication because it establishes understanding between a puppy and its owner. When expectations are set, then all parties involved, although of a different species, operate within their roles in such a way that leads to satisfying coexistence.

Aim for healthy emotional and physical prosperity for your puppy and your family. A well-trained dog is a reflection of the type of owner it has so provide your puppy with what it needs to represent you well!
