I. Focus on healthy psychological shaping of puppies

1. Meeting the need for puppy safety

Creating a safe environment where puppies are not inadvertently stimulated, and where puppy caregivers have a good relationship with both mother and puppy, creates a “safe” place for puppies to be separated from their mother as an important “environment” outside of her. The “safe” housing created by the caregiver as an important “environment” outside the mother creates favorable conditions for the puppy to be separated from the mother and gives the puppy confidence to grow. In many cases, the timidity and nervousness of the adult dog is often related to the injurious stimuli the puppy receives. For puppies, safety is everything.

2. Puppy group relations

The pack habits of dogs are fundamental to the early years of life, and the habits of adult dogs carry more traces of puppy bonding. For dogs before five weeks of age, because of the small functional differences, activities are very similar, mutual communication is not easy to produce harm to each other’s behavior, and this period of scattering bite, chase and other behaviors is the exercise of dog hunting instinct, so in this period, to provide dogs to stimulate dog communication sites, such as lawn, can promote the dog’s judgment of space, enhance the physical strength of puppies; change puppy activity sites can also provide more for the dog’s game opportunities.

3. Guiding the dog’s sense of individuality

Entering the 619-week physical growth period, as physical differences emerge and intensify, there is a strong sense of self in the dog’s activities, which is caused by and characterized by the struggle for food. The evolution and intensification of the dog’s personal consciousness leads to further understanding of the puppy and the development of behaviors based on conditioned reflex activities, such as being afraid to eat food and to take possession of title objects. At this time, the dog should be kept separate and it is very important to seize this opportunity and the puppy should be selected for a period of time when this behavior occurs, but without serious psychological stress. This is a way to help build confidence. When separated, the puppy should first maintain visual contact. Maintain their need for the pack. Spatial isolation training is the beginning of developing the personality of the inferior dog and making the temperament of the superior dog.

The puppy period is an important time in the development of the dog’s mental and physical functions. During this period, creating an environment conducive to the physical and mental development of the puppy, purposefully shaping the puppy’s psyche, and developing certain qualities is a beneficial guarantee that the puppy will grow into a competent working dog. The psychological development of puppies is closely related to the environment. When the puppy meets the basic survival needs or later, the puppy interacts with the external environment, during which time the puppy has little influence on the external world and is mainly influenced by a variety of external information, so the living environment that controls the puppy’s role can affect the dog’s understanding of the external world.

Caressing is essential to develop a sense of obedience

When grooming your dog, touch not only the head and back, but also sensitive areas such as the ears, fingertips, and palace so that he gradually adapts to being caressed and so that brushing and cleaning his ears will not be difficult. In addition, if the dog is on all fours showing its belly, it means it has surrendered or pampered. At this time, you should gently caress it and cultivate its sense of obedience to its master. Groom him regularly all over from a young age so that he gradually realizes that grooming is also a pleasure.

2. Let him interact with people and other animals to develop his social skills

If you only let him have contact with his family at home, he will be nervous once he changes to a new environment. Therefore, to develop its happy social skills, it should be exposed to people and other animals from an early age to gain lots of social experience.

When exposing him to other dogs, to prevent him from being afraid, expose him to gentle dogs first and then slowly to other dogs. Let the dog become familiar with dog language while playing.

3. Communicate verbally while playing and gradually adapt to humans

Talk to him, play with him, and make him realize that people are not scary animals. Soon, he will have a strong sense of trust in his owner.

The dog owner should constantly take good muzzles, strokes and other rewards.

It focuses on developing various desires and awareness in puppies, which is the initiation phase of the whole training.

IV. Training puppies on meal manners

1. Let your dog see the food

Food needs to be seen, especially during training, and the dog must be greatly attracted to the food, but must also have a lot of patience. If you don’t entice him with food, you can’t accelerate his learning. Please have his favorite snacks ready.

2. Get the dog to sit

Place the food in front of him and let him sniff it with his nose. Then lift the food up and place it on the dog’s head and have him sit. At the beginning of training, the dog may not sit immediately; it may stand up and try to eat. At this point, we must insist that the dog sit steadily or never eat. Usually the dog will sit submissively, with his eyes on the eyes of the food, fearing that it will suddenly disappear.

3. Slowly place the food on the floor

Place the food on the ground, one step away from the dog. The dog may immediately rush up, but when the dog does, he will immediately remove the food and not let him eat it. Let him know that if he doesn’t listen to the code, he will never eat.

4. Reinforcing the impression of the meal opening password

A dog’s patience is limited, especially when you first start training, so don’t make him wait too long and lose the motivation to wait. If other things are more appealing, your training won’t work. So, as long as the dog is willing to sit nicely, when you put the food on the floor in front of him, he won’t eat it right away. 10 You can give the meal-opening command in a few seconds and push the food toward him when you give the command. When it eats, encourage it immediately~~>

[Ark Review]

Develop a sense of security in your dog’s eating from a young age. Many dogs wolf down their food and are unhappy with anyone or any dog eating because they protect food sovereignty. The dog worries that someone will take his food away, so he growls low to express his displeasure, so he should be nurtured from an early age!
