Educational training From what age to train a puppy? A puppy can learn since birth, but until he was blind and deaf, very difficult to find him suitable reinforcements. At the age of about 2 weeks the puppy opens his eyes and he begins to leave his “lair” – the place in which he lives a happy mother with offspring. Coming out of the house, he meets with the outside world. At this time, training is easier, but the classes can cause great anxiety to his mother, and it is unsafe for dogs-mother and puppy, and sometimes for people. At four weeks of age the puppy is lively, cheerful and trustful. He begins the socialization period, when he learns to communicate with other dogs, people and the world. 3 to 16 to 20 weeks (this is dependent on breed) puppy must meet as many types of people, dogs and situations. At this time he needs to learn the language of their own species, otherwise he would not be able to communicate with relatives, be interested in the opposite sex, will not be able to take care of their own offspring. If a puppy of this age will only communicate with older people, he wouldn’t understand that little children are people too, and may even start to hunt them. It is essential that the puppy was properly socialized, so from 3 to 16 weeks is a critical age that determines the life of your pet. Naturally, it is also luckyworth for the beginning of training, because: 1) the Training is not only a skill. Training the dog, you give her the key to the understanding of man . She begins to distinguish the praise from censure, vyuzivat your gestures, better tied to the owner, learns to understand where to focus your attention. 2) Training is the path to the soft, friendly communication with the dog . Almost every team ban, like “fu!” or “no!”, you can replace the command “come” or “sit”. If the puppy sneakers grabbed or leaned on you with their front paws, the only punishment will direct his attention to what he does. And although he may start to fear punishment (or the owner), he will not forget about the sneakers or his paws on the master’s coat. The command tells the dog not that she can’t do that, and the fact that she was in this situation should do. Puppy attention is focused on the execution of commands, they are fixed, and the unwanted behavior will disappear from his memory. 3) Training is a way to diversify the life of the puppy . and thus it is better to socialize. Catching up with the dog, not letting the development take its course, you will feel exactly what your puppy is afraid, what else needs to meet. And during class he will be constantly cope with new tasks and develop their intelligence. 4) aged approximately 3 to 12 weeks of a puppy’s developing behavior . If you skip a period, to play the dog will be much harder, and it will prefer to execute commands for a treat, the toy will interest her less. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about a pet, but athletes and handlers know how valuable a love of games dogs in preparation for performances in courses in obedience, agility, freestyle, and protective service – good job on the sleeve depends on how much is the dog played as a child. However, there are two very serious reasons why dogs start training later than 16 weeks: 1) Vaccinations. Unfortunately, in large cities the probability of catching a life-threatening infection for the puppy is very large, so vaccination has to be treated carefully and abide by the quarantine. However, while there is a quarantine, the puppy misses out a period of socialization. The owner needs to remember that 15 years with “crazy crazy” in the apartment would not give him any pleasure, even if that tailed freak will be physically healthy. So as soon as quarantine is over, you need not lose a minute to socializing dogs. Usually the hosts have only 2-4 weeks to fill in the gaps in the development of your pet. 2) training Methods. It is experimentally proved that training, based on the so-called “mechanics” (when the dog pressed his hands, trying to generate it pose) leads to the fact that the dog becomes stupid . It ceases to be proactive and not trying to solve the problem independently. This training helps the puppy not to grow, but rather spoils it. The age of about 16 weeks – it’s still age with a very strong memory. Besides, m
many dogs (it depends on the breed of your pet) 3-4 months is the beginning of the “age of fear”, when the puppy learns to distinguish dangerous from safe. All the events happening with the puppy and the people around him and the dogs, literally “prints” in memory of the baby. If you punish your puppy physically, or if someone severely punish your dog in the presence of your pet, it will have irreversible consequences . later they will manifest themselves in the fear of all people or people with some sort of special appearance, perhaps in fear of dogs or special circumstances. For example, if when your puppy someone at the training grounds severely punished my dog so that her tail or even screamed, your puppy will remember that on the grounds dogs may experience pain. This will have an impact on the group classes, and sports performance. The only punishment applicable in this age is a “time – out”, ignoring the dog for several minutes. Even to raise your voice at your dog carefully – one dog will react to this calmly, the other nervously. Remember: the EFFECTIVENESS of the DOG training is NOT ASSOCIATED WITH PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT. The important thing is, at what point and how you operate on the dog. If you’re doing it at the right moment, we reach the result, pulling and slapping the dog. If you have to physically punish the dog, it means you are not targeting in the situation that are late or in a hurry, or just give vent to irritation. All this leads to a negative result in training. Training a puppy at the age of about 16 weeks that it has been of benefit to the dog, and the owner should include only two methods. 1) Kosovaairlines. The dog is taught to follow the food treat or toy. Then get a treat so that the puppy has to sit down, lie down, stand up or do anything else to get the promotion. 2) Operant. The owner calmly watching the dog and as soon as she accidentally did something right move, gives her a treat. First, the desired movement of the dog is very rare, but gradually she begins to realize that between her behavior and the reward is some connection. Having mastered several commands, the dog starts to come up and offer to host one or another movement – to the person just has to choose what to promote pet.
There is already a training platform, where instructors use two methods when training all dogs and puppies, and adults. Such training is safe for the psyche of a dog of any age . moreover, it allows to achieve much higher results in training and helps to build rapport between dog and owner. Therefore, to begin to engage in group educational training on such platforms immediately after quarantine or after 2 weeks after the appearance of a puppy in your home. The best age to start puppy classes is 3.5-4 months.
