It's the vision that we as puppy owners all dreamt about. A puppy that's leisurely strolling beside you, or sitting calmly at the feet at an outside cafe. But there are several steps to do to ensure that your pup is on the proper track using their training to be able to make it happen!

At first, that perfect pup will come with some growing pains: nipping, chewing, potty accidents, barking, and more. Your puppy is growing and developing quickly. Once they've been home for a few weeks, your puppy should know the basics of an everyday routine and be working on some obedience training and learning basic commands.

So how can you know what you should begin training your pup first on? No matter what age you bring home your pup, you need to use our puppy training schedule as a guideline to simply help your puppy grow, develop, and learn the nice manners they want at home and in the world to greatly help shape them into becoming that perfect pup you envisioned!

1.Use your pup's food for training!

Your puppy's food is an incredible resource and one of the greatest tools you can use to coach your puppy! In those early puppyhood months, having your puppy work for their food is just a super-easy way to get and hold their attention for you, rewards them for doing so, and creates a confident association with looking for your requirements for direction!

At The Puppy Academy, we've our students bring their lunch to school together, and we use that meal for their training sessions. It is also the main foundation for our Online Training School. In both programs, you'll often hear us recommending our pup parents keep a goody pouch on or near them at all times initially weeks using their new pup at home. (Don't worry, you can and will wean off as they get older!) Having use of your pup's food comes in so handy for redirecting them away from something they're doing that you don't want them to complete, getting them to come calmly to you, having them focus for you to construct that guidance-based relationship, and reward them for their good behaviors to encourage them to achieve that again!

2. Be Patient and Consistent!

It's an easy task to become frustrated with the puppy training process. Puppies are young and still finding out the entire world, so they will make mistakes. It will take time and energy to establish communication between yourself and your puppy, so don't expect them to get it on the very first try!

To get them on the right track faster, maintain a constant schedule for the puppy. Consider making a daily puppy schedule which includes potty breaks, feeding and playtimes, puppy training sessions, and nap times! This will help your puppy learn to understand the daily household routine, feel confident and secure, provide structure, and promote good behavior.
