New Puppy for Christmas!
It’s the day after Christmas. All the family relatives have gone, everything has been tidied up and you have had the remainder of the turkey for lunch. It was a last minute decision to buy that cute little puppy at the pet shop – you couldn’t just leave it behind! You now have at least a 15 year commitment in raising a puppy and caring for a dog. This is not something you should take lightly.
The most important thing that you will do is to build a relationship with your puppy through positive reinforcement. One way to do this is to use the Clicker Training method and start by training your puppy to respond to his name. This is the beginning of a great relationship with your puppy. …….but what can go pear shaped very quickly ….
