Training my new puppy with needed skills
I have bought a new puppy. How do I socialize the puppy so it will interact with the family, and public, in a responsible manner? Depending on how old the puppy is you, you can find a puppy school, if young, or go to an obedience school, if older. A puppy school is usually found at a veterinarian office. This sets up a relationship with the Vet, provided you will use this Vet for the wellbeing of your puppy. The puppy school consists of a group of owners and puppies to teach the new puppies different commands i.e. sit stay come etc. You want a class with a small number of puppies so that you can do more one on one time with the instructors. Also, look to see if the school has one instructor and a couple of instructor’s aides. If the puppy is older you can find an obedience school to enroll your puppy. If going to an obedience school remember you need to enroll yourself for the class with your puppy. You should also work with your dog, at home, to reinforce what the puppies have learned in class.
Once the pet has graduated from school, you still need to reinforce the training all the time. Make sure you tell all of your family members that they need not to overwhelm your pet. Let them eat in private and do not crowd them. Family members should spend quality time with the pets. Make sure to walk them to get exercise. That is a good method to socialize them with other dogs in the neighbor as well as other humans.
