When and how to reward the dog
Anyone wants that his own dog learns by listening and following the basic commands like “sit”, “stay”, “come”… But you are never sure which is the best way. First of all consider that puppies begin to learn while they are with their mother and by playing with their siblings, by struggling and exerting self-control. Therefore it is essential that puppies stay up to 60 days of life with their own mother, to explore the outside world.
To encourage good manners it is important to correct puppy’s improper actions with a few words and immediately after ask him to act differently. As soon as the correct action is performed, the puppy should be rewarded. In this way you can stop the wrong behavior and then propose an alternative action with calm and gentle voice. This should not be as a command, but as part of an interactive game which will be rewarded.
During training it is important to manage his excesses of excitement, like when you take him to the park, where the puppy – due to noise, lights and smells – may have his emotional state altered. In these cases it is appropriate to distract the puppy or to actas if you were indifferent until he calms down. Once the puppy stops, he must be rewarded to make him understrand that he must remain quiet and seated.
Therefore for the training it is necessary to always keep on hand tasty food to use as a reward, preferably healthy and nutritious snacks such as those prepared by a mother for her child. With this food you can play with your puppy: hold it in your hand and let your puppy see and smell it. This will trigger his desire to jump on you, licking you or barking. Make your dog clearly understand that this is not the behavior that you like, so he will calm down and sit to receive the award. In this way you will strengthen his self-control and teach him to wait for the food. Always consider that puppies can forget what we are teaching them because they are still growing. For this reason we must always have a lot of patience and promote their learning through positive messages and not throught positive messages and not through punishments.
