Patience with your Puppy

Being patient with your puppy can be a challenging task. They like to bit, jump, tug, bark, yip and do everything possible to annoy you. But in reality, they are asking for your time and attention. A long walk will calm them down. Play with a rope or ball will release some of their energy. Next time your new best friend ruins some of your belongings, think about the attention they were receiving in the moments leading up to that event. More often than not they were probably not being paid attention to at the moment leading up to that event.

Walks are great for dogs because it allows them to expend their energy. Being aware of what traits your breed has and then finding ways for them to work for you will save you tons of stress in the future. Remember to take a step back and breathe when you get frustrated and that it is ok to stop and return to training later. It is not healthy for you or the dog to train when you are stressed or angry.

While difficult, the training should be reserved for when you are in a state of mind to be patient. Practice does make perfect. The more time you spend with your dog now, the fewer worries you will have with them later. Often times dog owners will choose to hire a professional to train their dog. This will save you time and stress.

Now a professional won’t be able to magically transform your dog into a perfect pet, but with enough help from you on the back end, you and your dog will be able to use the skills learned from a professional and practice them for years to come. If you want to to give your dog the best life possible, train them immediately, be patient, and use professionals who do this for a living help you by giving you and your dog the skills needed to be the best of friends.
