Resources for Puppies!
Here are my favorite games to play with a new puppy, as well as some online resources and classes linked below!
Want to hurry up your dog's potty training? Reward your dog with food each time they have a successful trip to their potty spot!
On that note, make a schedule for the whole family to use. Note your successes - from pottying to training games that you play! If your dog is having a challenge, you'll be able to see it if your schedule is accurate. Is anyone leaving your puppy unsupervised? Is your puppy ready for that?
Practice from your handouts every day. Not sure what games to play? Print out your handouts, and put them in a binder. With your eyes closed, randomly flip open the binder and do that exercise!
I * L O V E * the great advice given over at Pup Start, and they seem to post new videos and pictures just about every day. Go there for great advice and training videos and a whole lotta pupy cuteness.
Trainer Lisa Mullinax and 4Paws University also have great articles and graphics that illustrate questions that new dog owners may have. This, plus Lisa's razor-sharp wit, make me a frequent visitor to her page.
