  2. I'm afraid I don't have much advice other then to get a cat instead, but I fear too late for that one. ;) we have a dog, and we love him now that we have him and he is part of the family, but never again...

    I guess my only suggestion is that they will only behave as well as the systems you put in place to enforce the behavior you want. You can't do anything half way or they just get confused. You have to be consistent and disciplined yourself if you want them to be.

  4. Give him lots of exercise everyday to help use up some of that energy!

  10. I have never had puppy. My kids have been begging for years, but I've been told they are just like having another baby...and I'm not ready for that! :) Based on what I've heard from friends, my best advice is to be patient and focus on their sweetness when they are pooping on your carpet. Good luck and have fun!

  18. I would recommend crate training the puppy as a way to house train it. Also, you don't want to leave it inside for more hours than it is months old. For example, if it's two months old, take it out every two hours for a bathroom break, night time excluded!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Training sessions and tons if patience,but once everyone gets it ,they are a wonderful addition to the family

  23. My advice on your new pup would be to keep taking it outside to the same spot so that way he knows that is where he is suppose to do his business lol, this works my dog goes to the same place every time lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. My advice is to crate train the pup. It helps with potty training, and keeps them safe and comfortable at night and while you are gone.

  25. Be consistent with the wording asking if she/he needs to go out...helps a lot later :)

  31. congrats on the puppy -- my advice is consistency. being consistent in going out, training and comand words helps build a good relationship with the dog and decreases the confusion of being given different prompts for the same expectation.

  33. I don't own a pet but a friend is training a puppy to be a service dog for epilepsy. It is miraculous and that puppy is so well trained and it is a PUPPY. Crazy but it really listens and does not jump all over you or bark when near or anything. So advice would be find a way to train early. Nothing more frustrating for me as a walker out in the neighborhood to have dogs run up to the fence at full speed and bark and bark until they don't see you only to run to the other fence and do the same. :)
    How is that?

  35. My daughter (but really our whole family) adopted a dog rescued by U.S. Army personnel in Qatar. He was about a year old when he crossed the pond from his desert home to Winter-time Virginia. Still a puppy. The best thing that happened to us was a dog trainer who volunteered her time with him (well, us...). Besides helping him understand desirable behavior, she taught us what we needed to do to be good parents to this dog baby. He's been with our family for 7 years now, and we can't imagine life without him. So a course of one-on-one dog training would be a blessing for you both.

    All the best in this adventure!

  38. As for the puppy, I would suggest that every time the puppy wakes from a nap, take it outside and let it pee. It then becomes normal for the puppy to go outside.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh I have no advice. I'm totally terrified of dealing with any pets, but good luck!

  40. I haven't had a dog as an adult, so I'm not sure I have much advice about caring for a puppy! If you need chicken advice, I can help your with that!

  41. I have no puppy advice, sorry! I've had cats all of my life and I hear they are a little different... : )

  42. Bring the sweet puppy outside a LOT so they learn to do their business outside. Praise him when he does. And love him a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Make your puppy a mini quilt of course!
    Take 'em out for frequent bathroom breaks , show them to the exit door and the potty area so the association is there.

  50. I have a VERY active Boxer puppy named Gideon. My biggest advice is to be patient and have faith that if you keep working with your dog, she or he WILL learn and improve. I had many days where I was frustrated, but it really is just about giving enough time.

  51. Be prepared to give plenty of attention! A puppy is just like a baby, they can't wait for later!

  52. I just lost my 14 year old fur babe so it's been a LONG while since I've had a puppy in the house. I seem to remember really loud and sharp "NO's" got her attention when she was nipping (as well as all the neighbors attention) but finally worked.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Lots of praise & a small treat (keep a bag in your pocket) when he potties where he is supposed to.

  54. A new puppy? Stock up on carpet cleaner! They will inevitably pee ... or puke when you are just about to have guests.

  61. My advice for a puppy, is even when you start to gain some trust.......DON'T. I fostered dogs for awhile and I would get a comfort level and then I would find something chewed up or a potty accident. Don't trust them too soon : )

    ReplyDelete
  62. I use a jingle bell on the end of a ribbon and hang it on the door. Everytime i take the dog out, I hit the bell. Eventually they learn to hit the bell themselves when they want to go out!

  63. My only advice for the puppy is have patience.

  69. The best advice I can give you is to be patient. They do grow up and most of them grow out of their naughty puppy manners. Second bit is to take a course on training your puppy -- AS SOON AS YOU CAN. It will make a world of difference. Third bit: have fun, and remember that the worst incidents will be those you laugh about later.

  72. Your puppy is adorable! Just remember having a puppy is like adding a small child to the household (but they do grow up a lot faster).

    Don't let her in your bed or on your furniture now if you're not going to want her there when she's much, much bigger.

    Have fun.

  75. Just like with children, puppies need routine...and constant vigilance. When you take your puppy for training, take your children along so that everyone is on the same page. The more time you invest in the puppy, the happier you will all be. I could not live without a dog!

    ReplyDelete
  76. It is worth paying for an obedience trainer to come help! They work with you so that you can continue training on your own.

  100. Don't feed your puppy scraps from the table. It seems fun at first but isn't good for the puppy and becomes annoying very fast. Good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Advice on a puppy...

    1. Every time you feed him, take him straight out side to go potty. Don't bring him in until he goes. When you bring him in, give him a treat.
    2. Use the same words every time you take him out. Something like, "Go potty" or "Do your business". This will become his trigger and you will be able to tell him to go no matter where you are.
    3. Try to take him to the same area in the yard every time.
    4. Lots of chew toys. If you give him lots of stuff to chew, he is much less likely to chew things you don't want chewed.
    5. Close the toilet lid.
    6. Keep him exercised. A tired puppy isn't getting into stuff.
    7. Start training early and often. Spend time every day working on something specific.
    8. Teach a hand signal with each command. If your dog gets old and deaf, you can still communicate.
    9. Read up on what to expect from your type of puppy. Reading 'How to Raise and Train your Brittany Spaniel' taught me a lot about why my dog did some of the stuff he did and what he was telling me.
    10. As soon as he's had all the right shots (ask the vet), socialize him with kids, other dogs, cats, anyone you want him to be comfortable around.
    11. Focus more on rewarding good behavior than punishing the bad.
    12. When asking for an action, such as sit, don't let him move on until he gives a good sit. Once does, lavish him with praise and make a big deal out of it.

    I've trained a few dogs, so I could go on for a while. Anyway, something to think about when the puppy is older - Dog Agility! I did this with my collie and she loved it.

  102. Consistency is the key for you and everyone that comes into contact w/the new puppy on a daily basis for a few months. Like no on the couch/bed or what ever rules you've established. Also, you may want to limit the food/water intake in the evening hours so the puppy will not need to go outside in the middle of the night/too early in the AM. Overall, have fun once they learn the routine it's awesome! And thanks for the giveaway!

  104. Crate train, consistency, and lots of chew toys. We've had two puppies now, and read everything we could get our hands on about potty training with the first one.... this is what we learned. Consistency is KEY. Any accident our first puppy had in the house was really our own fault for not being consistent. We left him with my mother in law during the day because he was too little to stay by himself without potty breaks while we were at work. She followed the crate training rules to the letter and he never had an accident in her house. We weren't quite as good at consistency, but he only ever had a couple accidents while we were awake... there were more when we were asleep and didn't wake up to take him out.

    So... read up on crate training. The gist is that the puppy stays in the crate for 30 minutes... you take him out and say "go potty" over and over and immediately give him a treat when he does. If he doesn't potty it is back to the crate, if he does you then play for 30 minutes and then take them out and start over with the "go potty" ... if they don't potty, it is back to the crate. The crate should never be a punishment, and always give a treat when they go in the crate to make it a positive place. One of my dogs wasn't overly fond of the crate, but was happy in it. The other would whine if he couldn't get in the crate to sleep at night. Crates aren't bad like some people seem to think.

    This really works... our second puppy was a rescue that wasn't potty trained at 4.5 months... he was potty trained within a couple weeks. The only trouble with that puppy was that he wouldn't (still won't 7 years later) vocalize when he needed to go out, so we gave him a bell to ring so we would notice him by the door.

    And give them lots of things to chew on so they don't chew on stuff they shouldn't. Stay away from rawhide because you don't know what is in it (sometimes formaldehyde!) and go for things like antlers.

    And make sure to go on lots of walks... a tired puppy is a good puppy. A puppy that lacks exercise will be difficult.

    Oh, and socialize!! Socializing early and often is important. And that means more than just with other dogs... you want to introduce them to as many different situations as possible... different floor types, different noises, different smells, children, etc.

  111. I haven't had a dog in years...but I do remember the puppy stage! Best advice I have is to put behind doors anything you truly cherish so as to avoid puppy chewing. Also, a crate for when you are not home is a really good idea. Our puppy became so comfortable in her crate that she would stay there with the door open!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Obedience training is a must....and puppy pads..lol good luck

  113. My advice is to be patient with the puppy! There will be plenty of messes to clean up and lots of mistakes, but try not to get angry. Instead, try to have as much fun as possible with the puppy--they are only at this stage once!

  116. Lots of love and patience. You're a mama though, so I know you've got skillz :)
    Our youngest dog had terrible anxiety and allergies as a (rescue) puppy. It was a long and stressful time and I questioned my abilities many times.
    Oh, also, teach her bite inhibition. When she nibbles you with her pointy puppy teeth, say "owww!" and she will come to understand that it hurts when you put your teeth on a person. A good habit for the rest of her life.
    Our puppy is grown up now, amazing in every way, and teaches us about love and happiness every day. Worth every sleepless night!!
    You guys are going to be so happy together--congratulations!

  120. No advice on puppies, however, I have observed that they are alot of work (like having a toddler in the house). Good luck. So I suspect consistency and love goes a long way.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I found that having a puppy was like having little kids:
    - keep him tired
    - keep him fed
    - keep him busy
    Offer lots of toys, play with him a lot and make sure you're consistent with your corrections :)
    Good luck. Puppy phase doesn't last very long, just remember that, lol!!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Make their name always be a good thing. If you call their name when cautioning or correcting they can get confused. Say No or stop. And lots of love and belly scratching is good.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I just got a puppy in October! My advice, stick to the rules that you'll want when she's full grown - no jumping up, etc. It's cute when they're little but not so much later. Oh, and no people food!

    ReplyDelete
  124. My "puppy" is 12 years old now but I still remember how she craved attention so if we gave her as much as we could she did much better. We did best when she learned that the kennel was her safe place when we left her alone at home, much less chewing went on.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I don't have a lot of experience with puppies (besides wanting one :) ) but I do have a rescue pup. One of the key things I've learned is to be loving and gentle but also always being firm. For example, saying "come" isn't a suggestion or a question, its a command (which sounds so rough) and treating the situation as such (and always rewarding when they respond the correct way either with treats or lots of pets) - I hope that makes sense. Your puppy is so precious and I have no doubt that you're doing a wonderful job :)

  133. Major congrats on getting a puppy! It's so wonderful with dogs!

    My best puppy advice is to use positive reinforcement! So much easier to train a dog by reinforcing the behaviours you want, as no matter how you do it, when you punish negative ones, you are in a way enforcing them by giving attention for doing wrong. It also fosters trust and a love from the puppy, which you'll always get back tenfold. =)

    Thanks a lot for the chance to win!

  136. My best advice: Crate train the little darling! At first they don't get it, being locked in there at night and when you leave the house, but then it becomes their little special place, their comfy bed, their own time to go when they're tired or need a break. Don't use it for punishment, just for bedtime and when you are gone. The puppy won't pee/poo in there, they will hold it. Make sure it is big enough that he/she can comfortably turn around. Put toys inside and some blankets. Good luck!

  137. We fed our puppy twice a day and took him outside about 5-10 mins after each feeding. We also took him out on a leash every so many hours. He learned to walk on a leash and we had no accidents in the house.

  140. I've never had a dog, so I have absolutely zero wisdom to share, other than enjoy the cuteness! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  142. I don't know much about dogs, other than, put the time & effort into training, and use positive reinforcement! (Don't yell like my downstairs neighbor, argh!)

  144. I was never in charge of training a puppy, but one of my friends used to be a dog trainer and she did great work with her students! :)

  147. I don't have animals so I can't quite help you, but... for puppies, don't see why you can't treat them the similar way you do babies! Cuddle and love them! Good luck!

  148. Take the puppy NO WHERE during their fear period. My dog can't stand to ride in the car because she had a spill during this time.
