Puppy Training 101 --- It Is All About Boundaries

Little Puppy Wolfie loves to wander all over the place and he gets into all sorts of trouble.  What is the deal here?

All dogs roam their territory to check things out, sniff, explore, etc.  The problem with puppies is that they have a heightened level of exploration, inquisitiveness, and play.  This can lead to things happening in other rooms that you just don't want to take place.  Things that you may find are:
  • Potty accidents
  • Damaged furniture
  • Papers all over the floor
  • Plants pulled out of their containers
  • "Stuff missing"
  • ... and a whole lot more
Just like we managed our children when they were young, we have to do the same with our new puppies.  The one and only rule that you must remember is to always keep little Wolfie in your sight.  If he begins to do anything wrong, you have the opportunity to correct him immediately while he is in the act of his misbehavior.  In this way, little Wolfie will learn what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior in your house.

Life happens and sometimes we can not always focus on little Wolfie 100% of the time.  If that is the case, use baby/doggie gates to make sure you can manage where little Wolfie can roam.  If this is not possible, you will need to crate him or place him in a small room, such as a laundry room.  For more information, please contact The Best Dog Trainers in South Florida.

Remember, just like our children when they were small, we must know where little
Wolfie is all the times in order to keep him safe and allow us to teach and socialize him.  If you have further questions, please contact your local Bark Buster Trainer.
