Welcome to Day Fourteen!
You call and you call and you call your puppy to come to you, and you feel completely ignored. You're frustrated, and baffled on how to get her to understand to come to you when you call her. Today's Training For Success column has your answer with, "Come When Called – Step 1." Teaching your puppy how to come to you when you call her is fun!
You've decided that you want to work with a professional positive reinforcement dog trainer to help you teach your puppy an array of good manners. Good for you! If you haven't learned the principles of the positive reinforcement methodology, work with a trainer versed in dog behavior and positive reinforcement. If you haven't trained a dog in eight years or longer, a professional positive reinforcement dog trainer can bring your puppy knowledge into the 21st century! Today's Perfect Puppy column, "How to Find a Qualified Dog Trainer" talks about your positive reinforcement dog training choices.
There are common pitfalls that every owner of a new puppy is challenged with. Read today's Understanding Your Puppy, "Pitfalls of Puppy's First Weeks" to learn how to recognize and avoid these frequent snags.
In the continuing series for Kids & Puppies on puppy body language, today we talk about how your puppy might use her tail to communicate her feelings. Read, "What Your Puppy is Trying to Tell You – Tail" to learn more.
Did you know that a candle can terrorize your puppy! The dancing flame in a dimly lit room is completely unfamiliar to her, and the popping and crackling noise of the wick doesn't make sense to her. Next thing you know, your puppy is either trying to bark the candle out of the room or is hiding under your sofa table! In today's Socialization For Today, "Candles Aren't Aliens!" we talk about how to help socialize your puppy to the aliens on the dining table!
