Tips For Training Your Puppy

Although there are many training tips for puppy's, they  love to chew, and will chew anything they can get.  Although chew toys are preferred, there is a way that you can help your puppy to fulfill his natural instinct to chew, and help him to ease the pain of teething as well. 

To start, simply fill an old sock you have with several ice cubes.  Next, put a knot in the sock and place the sock with the cubes in the freezer.  When your puppy starts to chew on things, simply give him the sock.  You can keep several socks with ice in it in your freezer if you want, so your puppy will always have a chew toy.  Although this is great to use, you should never leave your dog alone with the sock.  He could end up chewing the sock and swallowing pieces of it, which could lead to very serious health problems.

During leash training, a lot of people prefer to attach the leash to the puppy then drag him in the direction they want him to go.  This isn’t the best way to train, as it often sends the wrong signal to the puppy.  Instead, you should first get your  puppy used to the collar and the leash.  You can do this by putting his collar and leash on inside the house or outside in a fenced in area, so that he can walk around and move about freely with the leash on, dragging it alongside him.

Once you have given him some time, pick the leash up, then start calling him to you.  Once he comes over to you, start praising him for it, so he knows that he is on the right track.  Always be patient when leash training, as it will take some time for him to get used to it.  If you continue to praise him when he is doing it right and continue giving him time to get used to the leash, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Digging around

Digging is something that puppys love, as it is essential to their nature.  Digging can be somewhat frustrating if you don’t give your puppy an area to himself, as he will dig holes in your yard.  If you keep your puppy indoors, he may try to dig in the floor, on the couch, or on the bed. Digging is part of their nature, and you should never punish a puppy for digging.

To help him fill this need, you should give him an area to dig in.  You can get him a kiddie pool or sandbox, filling it with either soil or sand.  Then, try burying a treat or toy in inside, so your puppy will dig to get it out.  Once he learns this is where he should dig, he will more than likely head to that area when he has the need to dig.  Later on, when he becomes a bit older, you should invest in obedience training classes that will help him to get his digging habits under control.

The above tips can help a great deal when training your  puppy.  The right training makes  great dogs, although you’ll need to have a bit of patience with them.  Even though they are very smart , it may take them time to learn.  Once they start learning however - they will become an integral part of your family that you couldn’t begin to live without.

I found a e-book that allowed me to take my dog's problems and solve them.She is now very obedient.

I was able to slash my dogs obedient training time in half by using these techniques from  reading this e-book

I read previous training courses that took months to get through,with little results

When I was teaching my dog to stop biting and chewing everything in the house, car,yard etc.The e-book showed me how to stop her chewing within two weeks.This e-book solved about 90% of my dogs problems.I realize that my dog is not perfect, some small issues are still there.

I am very happy with this e-book.My family and I don't have any sleepless nights anymore, and my neighbors are not complaining  about the barking and the aggressiveness that she had.Also my dog does not seem to have that nervous tension any more .

I would recomend that if you have any problems like I did that you check out this resource.:

How to slow down arthritus in dogs

There are a few things that you can do at home for your pet to slow the disease and help your dog to stay healthy and help to stay pain free as possible.
The first solution is to up the doses of powdered Vitamin C into the dog's daily meal.  Vitamin C will help keep tissue healthy and protect against further joint deterioration. Try and use  a sodium ascorbate or another form of buffered vitamin C, plain ascorbic acid may cause an upset stomach.
 Daily dosage guide for adult dogs:
        Small dogs                         500mg - 1,000mg
        Medium - Large dogs       1,000mg - 2,000mg
        Giant dogs                        2,000mg - 4,000mg
You can start with the smallest recommended dosage and  increase it once or twice per year.  If you see that the dog is producing loose stools the dosage may be a to  high, so cut back slightly and increase it gradually over time.
 Try using Rhus Toxicodendron, which is a very effective homeopathic remedy and will help to manage pain and aching.
Also you might try  Home-Cooked Meals for your pet, as this will provide them with high-quality and chemical free food. Avoid using any vegetables that are part of the "nightshade" family, such as tomatoes, potatoes, peppers and eggplant.  These vegetables tend to aggravate an arthritic condition.
