The Important Lessons Your Puppy Needs To Learn At School

There are few cuter and more affectionate animals in the world than a puppy, no matter the breed. Puppies are a little bundle of joy, curiosity and playfulness that, while incredible to be around, also needs to be reined in a little bit. Without establishing certain boundaries, this inquisitiveness and energy can be directed in the wrong way, and it is easy for owners to become pushovers. That is why every puppy needs a few lessons at puppy school so that they know how to properly behave around their owners and whenever they are taken out on a leash. 

Simple Commands

You don't need to take your dog to puppy school to turn them into a military-trained service animal, far from it. Puppy school is more about instilling basic commands that help both you and your dog. Sometimes dogs can be a little bit too interested in certain wildlife, especially in Australia, and it is necessary that they respond to your call to return to you so they don't get hurt. Or, alternatively, it is also important they can listen to you when it comes to feeding so that they do not become too aggressive or jump around and potentially damage your house.

Socialising

Dogs might not seem like they emulate a lot of human characteristics but one that they absolutely do need to learn is how to socialise with other dogs. This is especially important for bigger dogs who might be able to do some real damage if they are not taught how to be gentle and playful from a young age. Puppy school helps them become familiar with dogs of all shapes and sizes, as well as other people so that they do not feel nervous or get anxious when they encounter them in the real world.

Potty Training

If your dog is more of an inside dog then you will need to teach them from a young age how to tell you that they need to go to the bathroom. In addition, they should be trained to know where they can go to the toilet within your home (so you should have a designated place they can pee should they have to, especially when young). This is perhaps the most important part of puppy school for you, the owner, because it will save you a lot of cleaning up, especially as the puppy grows up into a dog.

About Me

My Vet Experience When I notice that my dog didn't look well, I was really worried. Little Danny hadn't been eating his food and had been sleeping a lot. I called my sister and asked for advice. She recommended that I take my dog Danny to the vet. I booked an emergency appointment at the veterinary surgery and later that day my dog was seen by the vet. Assess Danny's help and prescribed some antibiotics. I was really impressed with the level of care provided by the veterinary surgery. Since this time, I have become extremely interested in animal well-being, so I decided to start this blog. Enjoy!
