Your new Puppy – Eliminating Bad Habits
develope many unwanted bad behaviours if left to their own devices. It
is very important to start basics dog training as soon as you get him.
Your dog will be a willing pupil as he his basic instincts will tell
him to please his leader - you. Eliminating bad habits is not too
difficult it just requires a little bit of patience and heaps and heaps
of praise to get him to behave in the manner which you require. Your
dog however needs to understand what is acceptable and unacceptable. In
this article I deal with some of the most common bad behaviours.
Each type of unacceptable behavior requires its own specific cures, and
in most cases the cures will need to be tailored to fit the specific
personality of the dog. Every breed of dog has its own unique
personality characteristics, and every individual within that breed has
his or her own unique personality.
Whining, howling and excessive barking
Let’s start with one of the most frequently encountered problem
behaviors in both dogs and puppies. While some barking and other
vocalizing is perfectly normal, in many cases barking, howling and
whining can become problematic. This is particularly important for
those living in apartment buildings, or in closely spaced homes.
Fielding complaints about barking is not the best way for you and your
dog to meet the neighbors.
Some tips of dealing with excessive whining, barking and howling
Ø If your puppy or dog is howling or whining while confined to its
crate, immediately take it to its toilet area. Most puppies and dogs
will whine when they need to do their business.
Ø It is important to teach a dog or a puppy to accept being alone. Many
dogs suffer from separation anxiety, and these stressed dogs can
exhibit all sorts of destructive and annoying behaviors. It is
important to accustom the puppy to being left on its own, even when the
owner is at home.
Ø Always strive to make the puppy or dog as comfortable as possible.
Always attend to the physical and psychological needs of the dog by
providing food, water and toys.
Ø If the dog is whining, check for obvious reasons first. Is the water
dish empty? Is the dog showing signs of illness? Has his or her
favorite toy rolled under the furniture? Is the temperature of the room
too hot or too cold?
Ø Do not reward the puppy or dog for whining. If the dog whines when
left alone, for instance, it would be a mistake to go to the dog every
time it whines.
Ø After you have ensured that the dog’s physical needs are being met,
and that discomfort is not responsible for the whining, do not hesitate
to reprimand the dog for inappropriate behavior.
Puppies naturally chew, and they tend to explore their world using
their mouths and teeth. While chewing may be normal, however, it is not
acceptable, and it is important to nip any chewing problems in the bud
to prevent the chewing puppy from growing into a chewing dog.
Providing a variety of chew toys is important when teaching a puppy
what is appropriate to chew and what is not. Providing a variety of
attractive chew toys is a good way to keep the puppy entertained and to
keep his teeth and gums exercised. Scented or flavored toys are great
choices for most puppies.
The puppy should be encouraged to play with these chosen toys, and the
puppy should be effusively praised every time he or she plays with or
chews these toys.
Another great strategy is to encourage the puppy to get a toy every
time he or she greets you. Every time the puppy greets you or a member
of your family, teach him to get one of his toys.
It is also important to exercise good housekeeping techniques when
training a puppy not to chew on inappropriate items. Keeping the area
to which the puppy has access free and clean is important. Keeping
items out of reach of the puppy will go a long way toward discouraging
inappropriate chewing. Try to keep the puppy’s area free of shoes,
trash, and other items, and always make sure that the area has been
properly puppy proofed.
If the puppy does pick up an inappropriate item like a shoe, distract
the puppy and quickly replace the item with one of its toys. After the
puppy has taken the toy, praise it for playing with and chewing that
Try booby trapping items the dog should avoid by spraying them with
bitter apple, Tabasco sauce or other nasty but non-toxic items.
