Primary education puppy

First of all, give your baby a name. Often the puppies born in the nursery are called breeders, and it is customary for the nicknames of littermates to begin with the same letter. This is the official name with the prefix in the form of the name of the nursery or breeding plant recorded in puppy card. For example, my rottweiler is called Miro from Floyd House. Some breeders come up with the most fantastic nicknames in the form of long foreign phrases for their pets.

Naturally, in the domestic environment such a dog is not called by its full name, but is shortened or transformed into a pet nickname. Sometimes the “home” name is completely different from the official entry in the pedigree. However, for a dog it does not matter at all what it will be called: Baby or Monster – the main thing is that the nickname should be short and sonorous. A nickname is the main repetitive sound combination that a puppy hears from the owner’s mouth. Use a nickname only as a positive incentive – for example, when you want to pet a puppy, feed it or please it with a new toy. After a while, having heard the familiar word associated with pleasure, the puppy will throw all its activities and rush to your call.

At two months of age, the puppy sleeps most of the day, and the rest of the time plays. He eats about five times a day, frees the intestines three times, and much less often fulfills the “little need”. Once in your house, the dog quickly gets used to the daily routine and the hours of feeding. If he is forced to remain alone when all family members go to work or study, then he soon begins to “feel” the time of his arrival. Try to feed the baby at the same time, at the same place. Appetite can say a lot about the health of the baby. Healthy puppy absorbs food with obvious pleasure, begging for additive and tidbits. He quickly learns to run up to the bowl, and with this you can start learning. Each time feeding gives you the opportunity to enter the techniques of initial training without stress.

Do not think that your pupil is not able to master some of the teams due to early childhood. At a young age, the dog is unusually playful, affectionate, friendly, curious. He is driven by research activity and contact. That is why the initial period of training can be called educational training, which is based on playful and imitative methods. Playing for a puppy is a vital necessity. In the game, the kid learns, knows the world, develops physically. The energy of the baby, which requires an exit, must be directed in the direction you need, used to acquire skills and create persistent stereotypes of behavior.

Primary education of a puppySo, tapping of a bowl of corsets is an incentive for a puppy that signals food. You can successfully use this signal in combination with the nickname. The intonation of the human voice is very important for the dog: high tones are associated with benevolent squealing (the mother-bitch makes such sounds, calling for puppies). A low tone of voice is like a threatening growl and carries a threat. That is why when calling a puppy, utter his nickname, if possible, in a high tender voice. It is known that puppies react positively to children’s and women’s voices and behave cautiously when they hear a male bass. If everything goes well, then the puppy gets used to the nickname for a few days and gladly runs to your call.

When the puppy gets used to the nickname, train him to approach you with the command “To me!”. This team is extremely important in the development of the relationship between the owner and the dog. Remember: from the very beginning she should be associated with a puppy only with pleasant sensations. Do not forget to sincerely praise the baby and treat him to a tasty morsel as soon as he comes up. Never call a dog with the team “To me!” To accomplish a punishment or unpleasant physical impact. For example, if you need to be vaccinated, then just walk up and take the puppy in your arms, at the same time talk with him tenderly, calmly stroke him, and after completing the painful procedure, praise him for patience and treat him deliciously. Sometimes trainers at home use non-standard commands that dogs perfectly recognize and perform. For example, the categorical “Ko me!” Command, which is usually called a dog, forcing to immediately obey and sit down at the owner’s left foot, is replaced by the more liberal “Come here!”.

The dog learns the world through the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch (tactile sense) and taste. Influencing them, you can wean the puppy from bad habits or, conversely, instill good manners. You can influence the feelings of a puppy with four goals:

– encourage desirable actions;

– make an impression and surprise;

– divert and switch attention;

– keep from unwanted exposure.

Depending on the specific situation, apply one or another impact. Most often, the team and the correction affects the organ of hearing. For example, you can loudly utter a puppy’s nickname that will make him pay attention to you and distract from undesirable actions.
