It is essential to have the correct timing for your training sessions. Start out with a small training session and up the time every day. Pay attention to the point when your dog starts to get restless.
Specific feeding habits should be established for your dog. Training your dog to expect that when fed, once or twice a day, you will be removing the food bowl in 10-15 minutes, will lay down a feeding schedule that your dog will adhere to. This will ensure he eats it all quickly instead of doddling or grazing all day.
Your dog needs to lead an active lifestyle. Boredom often befalls an inactive dog, or he may find himself in a “mutt rut” with a dull and listless routine. Bored dogs are difficult to train. Your dog is going to be a lot more attentive when it has received enough exercise. You and your dog can run or walk together daily.
Make sure your teething puppy has a bunch of chew toys readily available to him, and keep other things he likes to chew on away from him. Give it one of his toys instead. If your puppy needs to chew because he is teething, try a frozen washcloth.
Be patient when teaching your dog, it will take some time. You may need to repeat the same command lesson from 25 to 30 times before your dog learns it. Just remember to keep trying and be patient. Eventually, your dog will learn.
