Top 5 things to teach a new puppy (and when to start)

Top 5 things to teach a new puppy (and when to start)

Never underestimate the learning ability of a puppy.

Whether you know it or not, when you bring your puppy home, start training it!


Since cubs are rarely taken from their mothers 6 weeks ago (usually 8 weeks ago), their training actually starts before you even meet.

Training is never too early

Apart from being social, it is never too early to start training puppies for other behaviors.

These range from shaping and eliminating natural behaviors to better adapting to the human world to teaching cubs their names and basic status.

This list can help guide you during the first few weeks and months of puppy training.

Potty training

For obvious reasons, this is essential, and although I can write the entire article, just introducing the nuances of how to train puppies, it all reduces to three simple steps.

  1. When your urinal is in the right place, celebrate and reward.
  2. If your puppies go to the wrong position and see it happen, please calmly interrupt them and then immediately bring them to the correct position. If you don’t see the puppy accident, please clean it up and hope to catch the next one. No scolding can convey your dissatisfaction with their choice of the toilet.
  3. Supervise, supervise, supervise! The more accidents your puppies have, the more things you can’t see, and they learn that they can enter the house sometimes.


Puppies naturally tend to protect the things they like, including food, toys, and friends.

When they take things from the puppies while enjoying them, they will only be taught to protect them, not to abandon them.

Instead, try to redirect your dog to another object in order to delete the first object or replace them with something of high value.


Puppies use their mouths to explore the world, which means that those little teeth with sharp razors will never get too far away. If your cubs are severely pressed by their grip, please tell them.

Exhale “Oh,” and then take out the body part that he chewed for about 30 seconds.

If this does not calm them down, please completely separate yourself from the puppies for 30 seconds after the next “oops” and see if they are willing to calm down.

Basic obedience training

Puppies can learn all the basic cues that older dogs can master-from bowing to shaking to rolling. Start with the two basic behaviors of “focus” and “sit down.”

To establish focus, try naming the game:

  • Say the dog’s name in a happy tone.
  • When the puppy turns to you, say “Yes!” and reward them.
  • With a little practice, your dog will not only learn their names, but you need to get their attention when you call them.

Teach to sit:

  • First lay your hands flat, palms facing up. Gently grasp the puppy’s nose with your fingertips.
  • Slowly raise your hand to the puppy’s head. In order to make their noses subject to treatment, it is most natural to lower their bodies to a sitting position.
  • As soon as the ass hit the ground, he said “Yes!” and released the hospitality.
    Try five times and then try the same thing without any treatment (you will still gain something afterward).
