Owning a puppy is a big commitment and it is important to start your puppy off on the right paw so it can become a well-adjusted and well behaved member of your family. Normal puppy behaviour includes all those behaviours that we consider a problem, such as biting, jumping up, chewing, digging, barking and inappropriate toileting. We need to teach our puppies that these behaviours are not appropriate.
When your puppy is young between 8-16 weeks is the important time to socialise and train them. Puppies learn very quickly with proper instruction, these first few weeks are extremely important for your puppy and the training it learns now will last a lifetime. A well trained dog will become a great family pet. Like children, dogs need to be taught manners and the rules of the house.
