Labrador retriever puppy training will need to be done from when you get your puppy home because if you don’t, when they turn into an adult dog they will be more likely to please themselves. Taking simple action and applying obedience training for dogs from the first minute they arrive at your house will set the expectations in how they do what you command them to do when they are an adult dog. As Labradors are very clever dogs, willfully wanting to please you and can pick up what you need them to learn very swiftly you will be surprisingly pleased when you start to influence your puppy on how they should correctly manage themselves. You will be very interested to know that you’ll also find this to be very beneficial and the time you’ll spend with your dog will be worth its weight in gold.
Labrador retrievers are very talented in that they can pick up on what commands mean quite comfortably and want to be around you as much as they can to obtain all of your undivided attention. From a puppy to an adult dog you’ll find that yours will be trained with everything they need to have an enjoyable life with your family.
It is critical that you commence as soon as you can with your Labrador retriever puppy training and you can begin to train your puppy as soon as you get them home. Your charming, delectable, harmless retriever puppy will soon grow up to be a strong dog so being able to manage their behavior now will stay with him for the rest of his life, you just need to condition them early on.
Your puppy will be most responsive to any form of clear, prize based coaching. This means you treat and praise your puppy when they behave as you want them to behave and you do not reward or praise when they behave inappropriately. Also you should never harm, scream or use any form of violent force with your puppy as this will only frighten them and will most likely cause other problems later on in your dogs life. Your puppy will work their hardest to try to please you and they will learn, quickly if you teach them properly.
Mix your puppy with other dogs and people as early as possible as this is a vital part of their training and helps them get used to the things around them. And also ensure that they have plenty of mental and physical stimulation. For example instead of just giving treats to your dog (during non training activities) put the treat in a dog toy puzzle and let them try to work out how to get the treat out.
Above all else make sure that when you start Labrador retriever puppy training that both you and your puppy enjoy yourselves; this doesn’t have to be a chore and you can mix it with both yours and their daily routine.
