a dog's point of view


Puppy Pointers paw


It could never be as hard as teaching ME to sit!


It's been a while since I've been a puppy, but I do remember being welcomed into my first home. They were so happy to get to know me and take care of me. Then came the hard part -- trying to train me. Ha! Well, I was probably a hard one to train, but they did a good job. Here are a couple of things that, I'll admit, worked pretty well on me.


  • It's never too early to start. I Know my attention span was short when I was young, but I started to catch on soon enough. Plus, I'd rather learn sooner than later. You know what they say, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
  • Be short and consistent. None of my people like long, boring meetings that don't get anywhere. And I get even more side traked than they do! Make a training session fun with some play and some training. Always be consistent or we can get confused. And remember to take it slow, mastering one command at a time. Otherwise I get all the words mixed up. It's like learning a new language. People words are so much harder than "woof!"
  • Who doesn't enjoy a compliment! Use a lot of encouragement and praise. Mmm... and rewards are always good. Sometimes we just need to know what we're doin' right.
  • Patience is key. You know, everyone's bound to make a mistake sooner or later, especially if we haven't been trained on it yet. Sometimes being punished just doesn't make sense to us if we're not doing something wrong at that moment. Wait until you catch us in the act.
  • Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. It takes a while to catch on to something new, so don't be surprised if it takes a couple of tires. And, we'll probably remember better if you work with us every day.
  • Test us out everywhere. We are more likely to learn quickly at home, but in new environments, so many more things can distract us. Test out our learning in new places and see how we do. Try training with more people or even other animals in the area. a dog park! Yea, yea...let's go to the park!

Since my people started working with me, I am more confident and happy. See, I turned out all right. Your new puppy looks up to you and would love to make you happy. Trust me...we live for praise and compliments and most of all, rewards treats!


Now, what did I hear about going to the park?
