Puppy training begins at 8 weeks old. (This is a good time to start with basic manners).
Understanding natural instincts and behaviors inherent in your animal will help you meet your dog’s needs and prevent canine anxiety.
It is really quite simple. Dogs need the following to survive and function in the wild:
To be part of a pack or team.
A position on that team.
A specific job to perform within the pack or team.
Your family represents a new team for your dog. Give your puppy a consistent role position within his new family team, therefore giving him a specific task to perform.. The objective in proper, loving dog training is to help your dog develop self-control. Now you want a psychologically healthy animal. He must be given a consistent role position within his new family team, therefore giving him a specific task to perform.
When the dog receives conflicting role position messages or he has no specific task to perform, canine anxiety occurs. An anxious dog reacts with the dreaded separation anxiety, digging, barking, jumping, chewing, and others. All these destructive behaviors are your puppy's cry for help! As responsible and caring owners, you must learn how to meet the needs of man’s best friend.
In Dog Psychology 101, we learned that dog training is actually more people training than dog training. Overall, we must learn “dog language” and our canine companions must be taught “people talk”. This is critical for the following reasons:
Safety for our dogs – they must learn to respond to us
Curing canine anxiety
The objective in proper, loving dog training is to help your dog develop self-control.
A written guarantee is difficult, because no one knows when your dog will decide to challenge you.
