Rowan Sanderson sits down with Caroline Spencer, Canine Behaviorist at Bella and Duke, to discuss best practices for training your puppy.
It all starts with you. Puppy owners should educate themselves in the way of the canine. Observe everything your puppy does, since their behavior is communication. By understanding their language, you can make them feel safe and understood.
Most importantly, be in touch with your own emotions, because dogs mirror us. How we feel is mirrored in our dogs: If we’re anxious, our dogs are going to be anxious. Always remember that your puppy is actually being “trained” every second they are with you.
Take things day by day and be patient as you educate your puppy to become their best. Be that anchor—that guide—that your puppy looks up to for safety and companionship.
