Training a New Puppy: Helpful Tips & Tricks

by - 2/20/2022 12:00:00 AM

It's frustrating when you have a new puppy and have no idea what they're going to do next. A puppy is a wonderful addition to any family, but it can quickly turn into a headache as they grow up. You want them to be well-behaved and not all over the house, but you have no idea how to train them. It's time for you to learn how! Train a new puppy with no past experience, and this post will get you started on the right path. The tips and tricks inside are guaranteed to get any new puppy following your lead in no time.


How to Choose the Best Age for Your Puppy

Choosing the right age for your puppy is important. This will depend on your lifestyle and the size of your home. If you are living in a small apartment, then you should get a puppy that is younger than six months old. If you live in a big house with a backyard, then it would be best to get an older one so they can explore more and be less destructive.

If you are looking for someone to play with or cuddle with, then go ahead and get an older puppy because they will need less attention than younger ones. But if you are looking for a guard dog or one to help around the house, then it would be best to get one that is younger because they require more training and energy.

Why Can't You Keep A New Puppy Alone?

Puppies are a lot of work. They need to be taken out every few hours, they need to be fed, they need to be walked, and they need to go outside. This is not an easy task when you have a full-time job and other commitments.

The reason why puppies cannot be left alone for long periods of time is that they are in the process of developing their immune system. It is important that puppies are exposed to different viruses and bacteria so that their immune system can learn how to fight them off.
