Training your canine is about creating a consistent and caring environment for them. This will require a lot of your time and a great deal of patience. It takes somewhere between 6 months to a year before the little dog makes great habits. Ensure you’re ready to commit the time. Here are some tips on how to train a puppy effectively.
Buy the necessary supplies
Before you start, you’ll need the necessary supplies like a cage that is escape proof,
leash, collar, and of course a couple of toys. The crate should be
sufficiently large for the puppy to move around, and not be cramped. Keep in mind that it will get bigger the future. Depending on the breed, your puppy may develop quite a bit into a huge dog.

that is naughty. This will just make it scared of you. Rather, clap loudly. The sound will
bring about the puppy to realize that whatever it’s doing isn’t acceptable. If
it’s already late, take the puppy out so it can relieve itself. A short time
later give it a good pet and maybe a treat.
Keep in mind that it’s only a pup, and won’t understand why you are
are getting mad. If the incident happens once more, allow your puppy to have
additional time outside or more frequent trips out.
