Hello Pet lovers! As a dog lover and owner of 4 big dogs(yes…4..phew!) I must say its no walk in the park. These big fluff balls require individual attention and care on daily basis. One of the problems I had to deal with and often hear from others too is lack of obedience. Well first things first, always be patient with your dog! Never hit or scream at him because they get confused and scared or in some cases might turn hostile (in case you physically hit them) so just don’t knock at that door.
When you get a puppy, its all happiness and joy but consider the future, because all puppies turn into teens and have a phase of “acting out” and misbehaving just to see how far they can stretch it in getting away with things. So the training that you give from day one, it will come in handy during that phase because a dog that is constantly trained is a good and happy dog.
Use positive reinforcement during training, you will quickly notice that dogs respond very well when they know they will receive treats (greedy little babies!). Training hour should be a few hours before meal times or an hour after mealtime. Take tiny nibbles of dry food. Get the attention of your puppy by calling his name, now hold the nibble tightly in your hand and hold it near his nose but a certain height that he cant jump to, now guide it backwards while saying “Sit”. The puppy will (after a few tries) follow your hand and sit!! That’s when you give him the treat and pat him or rub his head. Puppies pick up commands quickly, some are tougher than others but with patience it can all be possible! Love is all they need!
