Puppy Socialization – Create a Balanced Dog
Early training and puppy socialization is key to creating a dog that is non-aggressive, happy, balanced and well-trained. A puppy that has not been socialized properly starting when it was born, or separated from its mother too early (before the age of 11 weeks), may be harder to train and may exhibit unwanted behaviors such as fear-based nipping, biting, aggression, constant whining, crying, or barking. In addition, many times the home that your puppy has come from may not have started socializing your puppy.
Leash Training Your Puppy
Leash Training Your Puppy the Easy Way
Leash training your puppy can be one of the most frustrating training experiences you can have. Especially when you are trying to train your puppy how to walk on leash without choking, pulling, or lunging. It can also become a negative experience for your puppy or dog if not done correctly. If a puppy or dog learns to associate a negative experience with leash training (such as pulling or choking), you are far less likely to get your puppy to walk correctly on a leash and more likely to give up on leash training, which is what a good deal of puppy and dog owners do.
