Congratulations! You are now an owner of an Empowered Puppy!
You and your puppy have accomplished much over the last weeks. You’ve built a solid foundation, but don’t stop moving forward.
LifeStyle training is a lifelong commitment. We all know how easy it is to slip into old habit patterns and forget how to do things when they aren’t at the forefront of our minds, and the same is true for our dogs. To continue to reap the rewards of a strong relationship with your puppy, be consistent and always aware that every time you interact with them, you’re teaching them.
Even when the ‘teenager’ months begin and it seems like your puppy has turned into the biggest brat ever, challenging you every step of the way, keep a cool head-pick your battles-and keep on working what you know. You will realize how much all of your persistence has paid off when the hormone driven nonsense subsides and your clear headed friend is once again a willing companion at your side.
Continue to keep your training sessions short and fun, following the routine of your life. Keep rewarding the behaviors you DO want. Work the default sit often. Use it often. Socialize at the rate your puppy can handle and remember it’s OK if they don’t particularly care for everyone they meet. You’re going to be tempted to slack off, but if you don’t, I promise the results will be so worth it. Enjoy these days of puppy hood, they go by so quickly. Make them days to remember fondly.
