Your First Puppy – What Do You Do?

Posted by Bruce Edwards on September 27, 2015  /   Posted in Really Good Pet Food

Everyone always wants a new puppy.  They are so cute and playful in the puppy store and give us instant, unconditional love.  We watch TV shows and puppies always seem to do great and always appear so well behaved.  They don’t tear up things, never potty in the house, and are always OK if we want to go away for a long weekend.

From those of you who have dogs and especially you guys who have had puppies before, the above paragraph are the musings of someone who has never owned a new puppy.

Puppies are great, but they are also take a large commitment on your part as well as a good amount of work and patience.  Understanding the types of toys, food, activities, and rules you need to implement and enforce are critical in getting off on the right path to assure a well behaved dog and happy family.  Proper puppy training and socialization will quickly assure that you have a wonderful dog for life.  We have some great and simple training tips to get you on your way.


Teaching a Fearful Dog to Walk on a Leash

Walking your dog is an important social event that helps build the bond and trust that you, as your dog’s owner, need to cultivate with your dog.  It helps to show your dog that when you both are out and about, you will always make the correct decision to keep him safe and secure.

Leash walking is something that is not necessarily natural to all dogs.  It takes away the natural “flight” aspect of their “fight or flight” mode when outside of their natural area.  If your dog is scared of the leash and does not like to go on walks, forcing him does no good.  All you end up accomplishing is pulling your dog around the block.

In order to properly teach your dog to walk on the leash and that everything will be fine takes a little time and a lot of patience.  The good news is that it isn’t that hard, if you keep with the plan we have developed.
