Table manners

Giving directly into your puppy's every need is wii thing. As your pup expands, so will his need to say himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But giving in to him is a blunder. You need to ensure he understands that you will not react to his every demand.
Your puppy must learn that individuals around him, particularly small kids, can be a little unpredictable. But he needs to acknowledge that their unpredictable behavior is not threatening. You are able to help him do this by imitating a child's behavior. Try stepping quickly towards his bowl - then drop in a treat. Gently bump into him, while he's eating, or roll toys close by - anything to cause a distraction, but drop a delicacy in the dish to prize him for carrying on to consume calmly. Do this once in awhile, however, not at every meal. If your puppy freezes mid-mouthful, growls or glares at you, stop and try again another time. If this continues, you need to seek advice from a veterinary behaviorist or qualified dog trainer.

Reading your puppy's body language

Dogs have always communicated with each other by using body language. This involves facial expressions, body postures, sounds and scents. Dogs use their mouth area, eye, ears and tail to express emotions. By learning how to interpret your puppy's body language, you can interpret your puppy's intentions.

Indications of aggression or submission

If your puppy is feeling brave or aggressive, he'll try to make himself much larger by standing tall, along with his ears and tail sticking upright. He'll also drive out his upper body and raise the locks on his throat and back. He could also growl and influx his tail slowly.
Alternatively, a submissive dog will try to make himself appear small and become a puppy. This is because an adult dog will "inform off" a puppy but not assault him. Submission will take the form of the sideways crouch near to the ground, his tail kept low but wagging away. He may also try to lick the face of the dominant dog or human. He might even roll on his back.

Your puppy's tail

Most of us recognize that tail wagging is a sign of friendliness and pleasure, however the tail can indicate other moods, too.
The standard way a dog holds his tail varies from breed to breed but in most cases, a tail held greater than 45 levels to the back expresses alertness and interest.
In case your puppy's tail is waved slowly and stiffly, that's an expression of anger. If it's clamped low over his hindquarters, this means your pet is afraid. An stressed or anxious dog may droop his tail but wag it stiffly.

Your puppy's eyes

In case your dog's eye are half closed, that is clearly a sign of pleasure or submission, while eye widely open can indicate aggression.
In the open, dogs stare at one another until one backs down or makes a challenge, which means you should never attempt to outstare your puppy, especially if he's nervous.

Your puppy's smile

Submissive dogs and some breeds such as Labradors often open up their mouths in some sort of lop-sided "grin", and even, it is a sign of friendliness. However when lips are drawn back again tightly to bare one's teeth, that's aggression, make no mistake.

Wanting to play

If your puppy wants to try out, he'll increase a paw or bow down and bark to attract attention. Or he might offer up a toy, or bound up to some other Dog Training Niche to get him to become listed on in a chase.

How your pet sees you

Your pup will watch you to learn your body indicators more than he will listen to you, and he'll quickly learn what you feel even without you speaking.
If you want to improve communication with your puppy, you can improve upon your own body language. For example, crouching down with hands opened up out is a welcome sign while towering over him and staring is an indicator of threat.

How your pup learns

Your pup will learn very quickly, so it's important that he learns how to behave properly immediately.
Dogs learn by association, so if your puppy does something good, prize him. Then your action is a lot more likely to be repeated. However the praise must be linked to the action, so he must be rewarded quickly, within another or two. The incentive itself can be a few kibbles of puppy food or praise, or both.
Your puppy must be taught what he can and cannot do. Some harmless behaviors can be ignored, but possibly dangerous ones need to be managed immediately by interrupting the behavior with a razor-sharp "no" to get his attention - make sure to praise him when he stops and pays attention to you. Shouting or striking won't help your pup learn.

Understanding barking and whining

Barking

Barking is a completely natural aspect of a dog's behavior, nevertheless, you, your family and your neighbours will be happier when you can take it under control.

It's hardly surprising many folks have barking issues with their dogs, since most dogs do not know whether barking is something good or bad. That's because our a reaction to his barking is confusing to your dog. In his eyes, when he barks, he's sometimes ignored, while at other times he's shouted at to stop, and on the other hand he may be motivated to bark if, for example, which suspicious stranger nearby.
To help your pet know when barking is acceptable, you just need to teach him that he might bark until he's told to avoid. "Stop barking" is highly recommended as a command for obedience rather than telling off.

Start the training by letting your dog bark several times, compliment him for sounding the alarm, then say "Stop barking" and hold on a treat in front of him. Your dog will stop immediately only if because of the fact that he can't sniff the treat while barking. After a couple of seconds of calm, give him the incentive. Gradually increase the time from when the barking prevents to the offering of the praise.
If you're worried about excessive barking that you have no control over, you should seek advice from your vet about next steps, such as specialist training or therapy.

Whining

In the event that you comfort your pup whenever he whines, it may actually make things worse. It'll make your pup think he's being praised for whining, and get him into the habit of repeating it for your love.
You are able to help your puppy learn to stop whining by not g,oing to him when he whines. By ignoring your puppy, and only giving him attention and compliment when he prevents whining, he'll learn that whining and whimperig is not the way to earn your acceptance.
