Living With Your Puppy
New Puppy Training
What do you do with a new puppy that is full of life, activity, love, and a lot of running around? Along with all the love, training needs to start early. Crate training your new puppy is very important. This gives the puppy a sense of security with the added benefit of housebreaking. A puppy will not soil the place in which they sleep.
Pet crates are available in many sizes and styles wire, plastic, wood, and soft crates. Some pet crates are adjustable so you can restrict the space the puppy uses until she starts growing. These pet crates have a divider that can be changed to accommodate the puppy’s size. Select a crate size based on the predicted size of the grown dog.
Pet gates are also helpful in training the puppy to be where she is allowed until she can be trusted on your carpet and furniture. Pet gates are available to fit most spaces and situations whether free standing, wall mounted, and also pressure mounted. Some pet gates also have a small door opening for smaller pets like a cat to walk through while restraining the dog.
Put your dog out at certain times or when she tries to tell you she needs to go outside. Learning the needs of your pet will greatly facilitate the training of your dog. Our dog likes, and needs, to go out after the dinner feeding. About an hour later, she wants to go out again. We fought this for a while but then adapted our schedule to what she wants and needed.
After this second trip outside, following eating, she is good for the night and seldom needs to go out again. No late night walks. Learning the needs and habits of your pet makes training easier, faster and more enjoyable for both of you. The time spent on this training or learning will benefit you and your family as your pet matures.
Using pet crates to help train your puppy, will make life more comforting and pleasing because you will be in control and won’t be concerned about where or what your puppy is doing.
Another practical use of a gate is to keep the pet away from a child or control the area where a child is playing. Pet gates can prevent a young child from falling down stairs, getting too close to a fireplace, etc.
Pet gates have many uses from the time you bring a new puppy home, to keeping your pet safe from visiting children.
