Boxer puppy training tips that you need to know
Since you have your heart set on a boxer, let's take a few minutes to learn about boxer puppy training. One of the main things that you will want to teach your puppy is to listen to you. This is where a lot of trouble starts. When a dog does what he pleases no matter what you say, he needs help and so do you.
In order to make the relationship between you and your puppy the best it can be, you are going to have to start early. A puppy will listen if he is rewarded and as time gradually passes, he will keep listening even if it is because he thinks he will be receiving a treat.
This is fine to start out but cut down on them as he learns more and do not give him a treat every time. Taking your puppy out and around the neighborhood will give him a chance to explore his new home. Let him meet the neighbors, children included, so he will get used to being around people.
One way to go about boxer puppy training, is to establish the rules he will have to follow and stick to them. Straying from his normal routine is quite exciting for him but just as children tend to forget things that are expected of them, puppies will forget too.
One idea is to establish an area in your home that only belongs to your puppy. It will be the spot he's sent to for time outs when he misbehaves. It will need to be some place that is quiet and private where you keep his toys and bed. It will also be a haven where he can retreat if need be. Keep his toys in a container that you can put away when he is in time out.
Chewing on inappropriate things is one of the main problems that puppies experience when being trained. Everyone knows that puppies love to chew on things, and given half a chance, they will chew on the wrong things. This is another reason for establishing a place that is the puppy's area. It should be free of anything that isn't the puppy's things. Everything located in this area is his to chew on to his heart's content.
If the puppy inadvertently starts chewing on your favorite shoes or sweater, stop him immediately and scold him for the behavior. Replace the inappropriate object with something that he is allowed to chew on like his toys or a bone. Follow this up with praise to let your puppy know that you were displeased when he was chewing on your shoes or sweater, but that his chewing on his own stuff is perfectly fine. Establishing boundaries for your puppy will build a special bond and give you a relationship that will last a lifetime.
