The upbringing peculiarities of a pet
It is obvious that it is the best to buy a dog from the breeder. This kind of specialist can prove that the chosen dog was trained and is accustomed to people. When the dog is from seven to twelve weeks old, you can take it home. Then you will be responsible for your pet’s upbringing.
Coherence and consistency
You should upbring your pet with coherence and consistency. For example, you say to your pet “Good dog” when it completes the given task. Usually people don’t know how to behave in a coherent and logical way with their pets. If you want to train your dog to lie down, praise it only when the task is completed and it lies down. When you go out somewhere don’t give the task to lie down to your dog, as you won’t be able to check if it obeys.
If you don’t want your dog to lie in your bed, don’t allow to climb into it. If the dog is sick, it is better to lay an old mattress on the floor.
If you don’t want your dog to jump on other people when it wants to greet them, don’t allow it.
Of course, it is difficult to upbring the dog with coherence and consistency if it lives with a big family where each family member has his own opinion about the pet’s upbringing. Then the dog feels unhappy because it doesn’t understand what its masters want. Sometimes the master’s irrational behavior affects the dog so deeply that it becomes aggressive or shy. You should have and follow the same behavior rules in your family, don’t have different ones. Before taking home a dog, discuss with your family members about the rules, what will be allowed to your new pet and what will be strongly forbidden.
