Greeting from our small Sunny Singapore! It’s been a while since I last blogged, but I hope I am picking up the lost art of blogging. Besides Blogging, I do have a Train Your Dog Podcast, and some training videos on our Youtube Channel – PUPS Jamming Studio and PUPSSG on Instagram.
Awesome, let’s take a look at the Topic of this Blog. HOW TO WORK, TRAIN AND MANAGE AN OVERLY EXCITABLE PUPPY. A Successful Training Program in my humble opinion is to be able to break the training into small bits, so we can address it totally, not only to stop the bad behaviours but also to nip the bud.
Positive reinforcement: Use positive reinforcement techniques when training your puppy. This means rewarding good behaviour with treats, praise, and affection. Avoid using physical punishment or verbal scolding as this can cause fear and mistrust in your puppy.
Consistency: Consistency is important when it comes to managing an excitable puppy. Establish a routine for feeding, exercise, and training and stick to it. This will help your puppy know what to expect and make them feel more secure.
By having a good look into the common puppy issues, I can break them down into small segments where we can address them individually.
- Socialization: Socializing your puppy is important for their overall development and well-being. This includes exposing your puppy to different people, animals, and environments.
- Consistency: Consistency is important when it comes to managing an excitable puppy. Establish a routine for feeding, exercise, and training and stick to it. This will help your puppy know what to expect and make them feel more secure.
- Structure and boundaries: Give your puppy a sense of structure and boundaries by setting clear rules and enforcing them consistently. This will help your puppy understand what is expected of them and reduce confusion.
- Exercise: Make sure your puppy gets plenty of physical exercises to burn off excess energy. This can include walks, runs, and playtime in the backyard or at a dog park.
- Training: Start training your puppy as soon as possible. Basic commands such as "sit," "stay," and "come" should be taught early on. Consistency is key when it comes to training, so make sure everyone in the household is using the same commands and rewards.
Patience: Remember to be patient with your puppy. They are just learning and will make mistakes. Be consistent and patient in your training and management techniques.
Seek help: If you are struggling to manage your excitable puppy, consider seeking professional help from a dog trainer or behaviourist. They can provide you with additional tips and strategies for working with your puppy.
