Puppies are cute, cuddly and full of energy. They’re also a lot of work. Without proper training, your puppy can turn into a furry little monster that barks incessantly, jumps on everyone, pulls on the leash and generally makes your life a living hell.

Don’t despair – with a little patience and consistency, you can train your puppy and turn your puppy into a well-behaved furry friend that you’ll be proud to take out in public.

Here are 5 tips to help you train your puppy properly:

1. Choosing the right puppy:

There are a few things to consider when choosing a puppy. First, think about what size of dog you want and what size will fit best into your home and lifestyle. Second, consider what breed or breeds you are interested in.

Different breeds have different temperaments and energy levels, so it is important to do your research to find the right fit for you. Once you have an idea of what you are looking for, visit a few different breeders or animal shelters to meet some puppies and see which one is the best fit for you.

2. Preparing your home for a puppy:

Before you bring your new puppy home, it is important to puppy proof your home. This means taking some time to remove anything that could be harmful or dangerous to a puppy, such as cleaning up any poisonous plants, putting away any small or sharp objects, and making sure all electrical cords are out of reach.

You should also create a safe space for your puppy, such as a crate or a playpen, with all of their necessary supplies, such as food, water, bedding, toys, and so on.

3. The first few days with your puppy:

The first few days with your new puppy are crucial in helping them adjust to their new home and family. It is important to be patient and understanding during this time, as your puppy will be feeling scared and confused.

Give them time to explore their new home and get comfortable with their surroundings. Let them approach you on their own terms and offer them lots of love and attention.

4. Puppy proofing your home:

As your puppy starts to explore their new home, it is important to puppy proof your home to help them stay safe. This means taking some time to remove anything that could be harmful or dangerous to a puppy, such as cleaning up any poisonous plants, putting away any small or sharp objects, and making sure all electrical cords are out of reach.

You should also create a safe space for your puppy, such as a crate or a playpen, with all of their necessary supplies, such as food, water, bedding, toys, and so on.

5. Potty training your puppy:

Potty training your puppy is an important part of helping them adjust to their new home. There are a few different methods you can use, but the most important thing is to be consistent and patient.

Start by taking your puppy outside frequently, especially after they eat or drink, and praise them when they go to the bathroom outside. If they have an accident inside, clean it up immediately and do not punish your puppy, as this will only make them more scared and confused.

6. Crate training your puppy:

Crate training your puppy is a great way to help them adjust to their new home and to teach them good house manners. Start by introducing your puppy to their crate gradually, letting them explore it on their own terms.
