Puppy training

There are a few steps for teaching your dog basic daily routines. Each step should be carefully considered and performed by the right teaching methods. The first step is to find a perfect place for locating its food and water dishes. It is very important for the dog to learn where his/her dishes are going to be placed every day. Setting a fixed time for eating and the right place for its bed are also very important routines. With the right teaching method, your new family member will know when the time for waking up and going to bed is, and where the toys are kept. It should be learned what the limits in your family are, and not to be allowed doing things he/she wants to do.

Learning the main commands

Using the right tone and words in teaching your dog the main commands is “a must”.  Basic words like “NO” and “GOOD” should be the first learned words. These commands usually can be trained when the dog is two or three months old. Everyone should start with teaching the dog these words first, before training other commands. Biscuit training is not always a good decision. Biscuits and snacks can be used in training tricks, but not in training commands. If the dog is not hungry enough, it’s possible that he/she wouldn’t listen to your commands and to continue having fun in things he/she likes. When your dog gets more than three months of age, you should teach him/her other commands like to give you, or to drop something, to come when is called, and much more.

Setting boundaries and respecting the owner

Each dog must know its boundaries. If the dog doesn’t respect the owner, there aren’t going to be any progress in training. For a new puppy, a crate is a perfect choice because in the beginning, when it’s not yet well trained, it can be used as a safe place for sleeping, for taking the puppy on trips or to the vet. When we talk about puppy’s first going out you must teach it step by step, how to walk on the leash without pulling, when to stop barking and how to lie down. With the right access into the dog’s mind, you will soon become its leader. Being a leader means that you decide what is good or bad for your dog. Your dog should be your loyal follower and once you got succeed in it, he/she will be your best friend.

Housebreaking- Do’s and don’ts

The process of housebreaking (household rules) can be difficult in the beginning, both for you and your puppy. From two to three months of age, most puppies learn the concept of housebreaking and easily train their natural programming. With a consistent eating schedule and your appropriate attention to the time, your dog will maintain a regular trip outside. In the beginning, every dog should be brought to the same place for learning its new habit. Once your puppy has done the job successfully, you should reward it for the good behavior. Housebreaking shouldn’t be stressful and complicated. The dog must accept you as a leader in your family and you must be the one who should set the limits of all bad and good habits.

When is the right time for training puppies?

Bringing a new puppy into the home is challenging for every dog owner. Each dog needs routine and rules for growing up right. They should be learned by good behavior and obedience from the beginning, and the new owner shouldn’t be worried by unnecessary details like finding the right accessories, puppy treats, or bed.  Puppies need nutritious food and a safe, warm place to live, and a strong leader at the same time. If you give them enough attention and teach them commands, you can be sure that your dog will learn all needed daily routines.

Hip Dysplasia

One of the biggest health issues of large dog breeds is a hip dysplasia.  It is a multifactorial abnormal development of the coxofemoral jointand is characterized by joint laxity and subsequent degenerative joint disease. The main factors that influence the occurrence of hip dysplasia are excessive growth, nutrition, exercise and hereditary factors. Hip dysplasia occurs in the difference between hip joint muscle mass and rapid development of bones.  This health issue may later cause osteoporosis, thickened femoral neck, joint capsule fibrosis,acetabular bone sclerosis and subluxation or luxation of the femoral head.
