Dog Training in a Flat

How to Train Your Dog When You Live in a Flat?

Dogs are like children, so don't think it's easy to adopt a dog. It's up to you only to train your dog. You have to face with certain difficulties when your dog is growing up. And if you want the dog to become your faithful friend and defender, you have to bring up it good.

The first you should know, there is no need to take a puppy at the age of one or two months. Experienced breeders say that if to wean a puppy away from its mother at such an early age, this may lead to problems: the puppy will be weak and won't run commands. Take the puppy at the age of three months, not before.

When you've alredy brought the puppy to your flat, begin on its training. The dog will play and sleep in the first months, especially it will chew your things, because of teeth cutting during this time period. Don't punish your doggie for nibbled slippers and a sofa, the dog wouldn't understand why it had got beans. Get special dog chew toys and dog treats for chewing beforehand.
