Tips For Caring For Your Precious Pup

A puppy is a wonderful companion. However, there is much to know about how to care for your new loved one. Many people feel that potty training is a very difficult lesson to teach a young pup, but with the right tools and mind set it can be a breeze. Here are a few important pieces of information from Blackhawk Kennels to remember while trying to train your beagle pup in the lesson of potty training.

  • Timing is the essential element of potty training. When a puppy is young he usually will need to go potty approximately 15 minutes after eating or playing. To put the pup on a schedule would be the best idea, only let them eat a certain amount and a certain time of the day. Also, to be more on the safe side, take your pup to a specific spot every 2 hours to relieve him.
  • Praise your pup when needed. A puppy will learn to respond to you and your tone of voice. If you reward your dog with praise and/or a treat, he will learn to do what is right in order to receive his reward. Remember, when praising or being stern with your pup, the tone of voice you use is very important. 
  • Keep a very close watch of your puppy. When a puppy roams around your home, he is most likely going to find a spot to relieve himself, before he learns to let you know he needs to go outside. Keep a close watch over your pup, and if you catch him in the act or about to, in a stern voice tell him "no", then take him outside to relieve himself. When he does right, be sure to praise him. He will learn to let you know when he needs to go outside.
  • Very Important—Don't discipline your puppy unless you catch him in the act of doing something wrong. If you do not catch your puppy in the act, do not punish him. He will not understand what he did wrong. We don't recommend spanking your puppy either. A firm voice goes a long way in correcting them. And when they do well it's okay to clap and act kooky... they love it. Treats are very usefull in training.
  • Allow your dog his own space, a place he could go to get away from noise and people, where he will feel safe. This is also a good tip for housetraining. Very rarely will a dog relieve himself in his area, such as when he is in his own crate, where he sleeps—he will hold it until he is released.

Chewing & Digging
When a young dog is left unattended inside or outside, he will find a way to entertain himself. Leave chew toys and such lying around so your pup may entertain himself when you're not available to play him. If your dog still insists on digging, try giving him his own area, and put toys and treats in the ground, so that he will become accustomed to digging in that main area.
 
Something to Remember
Your puppy's training is all in your hands. Training a dog to become how you want him to be is not an easy task, but could become even harder if one is not committed. It takes time, effort, and attention! There will be days when things seem like they could not go any worse, but trust me. Things will begin to improve. A puppy is just like a child, with the right tools, attitude, and commitment it can be done.
