Crate Training Puppies
Looks like there were a lot of new puppies who found homes over the Christmas season and the new owners are probably busy trying to train them. Of course, the usual case is that this process is much more involved than most first time dog owners expect. But don’t worry as there is a lot of help if this is your case.
First of all, if you didn’t get one already, go back to the pet supply store and get a crate. Crate training puppies is one of the most effective methods to speed up the process whether for outdoors or indoors using a dog litter box. My book, “Potty Train Your Puppy With A Litter Box – Convenient Indoor House Training For Dogs” includes a section on crate training puppies as part of the progression I use for all of my own dogs.
Overall Dog Obedience Plus Crate Training Puppies
Then I also highly recommend that you find a puppy kindergarten class in our local area. These classes are great as they also help socialize your new puppy with other puppies properly. Also to help you get started, I have a free basic dog obedience training video you can access. This video shows how I train my dogs on the most essential commands and skills they should know.
This basic dog training video will show you the minimum standard that all dogs should be trained on in order to have happy families at home with your new pet. Dogs enjoy training as it is mental stimulation for them and of course, they love getting rewarded too. This helps build stronger bonds between a dog and its owner.
For 2011, I’ll be shooting some new videos on various aspects of life with dogs including more on crate training puppies as well as other topics too. So stay tuned to this blog as I announced them but meanwhile, do visit me dog website to get that free video.
