Personalized Puppy Training Tips

When it comes to training your puppy, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each puppy is unique and may have different distractions that they struggle with. Here are some personalized tips to help you address your puppy’s distractions:

  1. Identify the Distractions: Pay attention to what specifically distracts your puppy. Is it a certain noise, object, or movement? By identifying the triggers, you can work on desensitizing your puppy to them.

  2. Positive Reinforcement: Use treats, praise, and affection to reward your puppy when they focus and obey your commands. This will help them associate good behavior with positive outcomes.

  3. Short Training Sessions: Puppies have short attention spans, so keep training sessions brief to prevent them from getting bored or overwhelmed. Five to ten minutes a few times a day can be more effective than one long session.

  4. Gradual Exposure: Gradually introduce your puppy to new environments, people, and animals. Start in a controlled and quiet setting and gradually increase the level of distraction. This will help them build confidence and learn to focus despite distractions.

If your puppy is already past the early training stage, the Life Skills program could be beneficial for both you and your dog.
