“I don’t even know where to begin. First of all, the vet that we were seeing in Mesquite was not as attentive, nor friendly enough to ask questions about our pet. We care and love our Westie as most owners do. We only want the best care for her.

Rockwall Veterinary Clinic says when you get home with a puppy for the first time, this is one of the most exciting times in your life. It is much like adding a new member to your family.

Nevertheless, the puppy obedience training practice could be somewhat arduous for you.

Despite the fact that it is generally known that teaching a puppy to live in a home is done more easily than doing the same with an adult dog, remember a couple of things as you start teaching your doggy how to behave.

In the past, the way to go included using a lease or collar and employing a fair deal of manipulation in order to teach the little dog basic orders.

These measures can, however, become somewhat mean sometimes and even hurt a delicate kind of puppy.

With a puppy such as a German Shepherd or a Bulldog, who aren’t as delicate, you might consider trying this approach.

With a Poodle or a Chihuahua on the other hand, more lenient approaches like handing out rewards or treats to the little dog, if follows your orders, and revoking them, if he does not.

You might enclose him within a certain fenced perimeter in cases when attempting to make him understand turns out to be futile and he rejects your orders

If training the puppy with rewards is doomed for failure, it could be that you have to resort to being somewhat strict and go for the lease or collar method.

One very common way to go about implementing the collar approach is having the puppy wear an electronic collar around his neck while having a remote in your hand.

If the dog refuses to follow your commands, you are in a position to push a button and then the collar will emit small shocks.

As these shocks do not have a high intensity, they do not cause any pain, but they will be dislike by the dog and in the end also evoke obedience.

Despite that, the best communication method for you and your canine pal is finding a common language.

Words like yes, no, bravo,…etc. will make him understand what you think.

This could take a while and you might need to be patient at the start, however, it will allow you to form a relationship between you and your dog that will last a lifetime.

After you have been able to teach a hard-to-train puppy, you have the right to call yourself an expert in canine obedience training.
