And Games With Your Puppy
Along with learning his
responsibilities and duties, your puppy is also open to learning
whatever tricks and games you want to teach. But before you decide to
teach him any game or to let some cute puppy behavior continue, ask
yourself whether what you think is cute now will be cute in a
Dogs of all breeds will “Fetch,” “Bring,” and “Give.” Especially if you
have a sporting dog that you might hunt with someday, teach the “Give”
or “Drop it” command at the same time you teach “Fetch.”. Otherwise,
you will spend your hunting days chasing down your dog to get the birds
you thought you were going to have for supper!
Once you have taught the basics, you can teach him anything that works
well to amuse you both, bond you, and make your lives together happier.
The more you are your pup's teacher, the more firmly your pup looks to
you as the leader of the pack. As your puppy knows more, he will
welcome advanced lessons, be the lessons about what games you like to
play or what jobs you want him to do.
Just like children, but on a more limited scale, the puppy thrives on
going beyond the basics. While you stick firmly to consistency in
things like feeding times and obeying certain commands, you and your
maturing puppy can also cope with varying amounts of inconsistency. It
is in these areas of innovation that you allow your pup's own unique
personality to blossom.
Many people find great fulfillment in obedience training their dogs. A
basic obedience course is necessary for anyone who is going to raise a
civilized puppy, but one can go far beyond the basics. It all depends
on what you want. Watching a well-trained obedience dog work is a
pleasure, and in dog shows, it is the obedience ring where you will see
the real honesty of dog and owner functioning as a team.
You can go beyond obedience into tracking, too. One does not have to
have a bloodhound to participate in this sport. The puppy who has been
taught the game of “Go find” can grow up to “Go find” in a very serious
way. Dog-sledding is also becoming an increasingly popular sport. If
you have ever watched well-trained herding dogs work, you know what
precision they exhibit, and you can guess at the time and love it took
to train them.
The more you learn about your puppy and his breed, the more you will
see that your horizons are limited only by how much time and expense
you want to invest in having fun with your canine companion.
