Default Raising Puppies: Be Positive

Bringing home the puppy home is one of the most enjoyable things that
you can enjoy with the young puppy. After that, you are now thrusts
into the role of a mother hen or an alpha male type of owner to raise
the dog properly.

You would have to be very patient when raising a puppy. This will take
a very long time and will sometimes be depressing. It will be
depressing when you keep repeating things to the point that your dog
does not seem to be responding. You would then be left wondering if
this dog is deaf or is purposely doing this to **** me off.

Despite of all the challenges of training a puppy, you should always
remember that in the end it will be for both your benefit. If you
leave your puppy untrained, it will think that it's the alpha male in
your household and may make you do things you purposely hate.

Just think about the situation when it is the dog that's becoming the
boss. The dog will be pulling you out of the house just to walk the
dog. Or the dog can bother you just to cook it a great home cooked dog
food. Isn't that worth thinking about? It will be much more depressing
when that happens because you'll be the laughing stock of people or
even dogs.

Just like in anything else in life keeping a positive point of view
helps. Even in training your puppy. When your puppy keeps on
destroying stuff, humping guests or even mess up the garbage, scolding
it in a negative matter won't help. When you keep saying "No" to your
puppy, the puppy will become confused. The puppy will not know what
exactly it did wrong.

Instead the puppy should be trained in a positive manner. Make her do
what you would want to do. When the puppy is nearing its call of
nature, immediately bring the dog outside. After which bring the dog
to your pesky neighbor's lawn and tell the dog that it's ok to crap
there. Then give the dog a treat. This will make the dog learn that
