To me team
Starting from two to three months of age, a puppy should always have a treat in his pocket when walking with him. Give the puppy the command “Come to me!”, Crouching and spreading his arms out to the sides, draw his attention.

You only need to do this if you find him at the “crime scene.” Do not tempt the puppy – when leaving home, remove all shoes and objects that you would not want to be torn Continue reading

Puppy initial training

Keeping your puppy clean
In order to teach your puppy not to get dirty in the house, firstly, you need to walk him as often as possible. It is absolutely necessary to quickly bring the puppy out onto the street immediately after eating, sleeping, or playing for a long time, otherwise the puppy will certainly get dirty, and then blame only on your laziness. As soon as he does his “business” on the street, he must be joyfully praised.
Old newspapers can help in teaching cleanliness. While the puppy is too small for walking, the owner takes a few old newspapers, gets wet the puddle made by the baby and puts these newspapers in an accessible and convenient place for subsequent cleaning. Further, the puppy is taught to go only to newspapers. As soon as Continue reading
