5 Dog Training Tips for 2016 Puppy Owners

Bringing your new puppy home has to be one of life’s more exciting moments. But with that cute puppy comes responsibility, one that involves training your puppy so that he can be the beloved family member you want him to be. Read on to learn the top 5 tips for training your new puppy.

Set up a daily routine 

The first few days with your new puppy are exciting, introducing him to his new home and family members. It’s important to start with a daily routine right away so that your puppy is better able to adapt to his new home.

Reward good behavior

Reward your puppy’s good behavior with positive reinforcement.  Use treats, toys, love or heaps of praise. By rewarding him, you are letting him know that what he is doing is right, which will then lead to a continuation of the behavior.  The reward should be immediate so that he knows he has done something good.

Discourage him from chewing on your things

OmegaPet’s grain free dog treats are the perfect reward for your new puppy. They are all-natural and grain free treats made in the USA with a mouthwatering flavor that your puppy will love.

Puppies chew for all kinds of reasons - it’s soothing, it lets out some energy and it can be entertaining for them. However, there are steps you can take to discourage him from biting and chewing on your things.

Housebreaking your puppy

Start your puppy on a housebreaking schedule as soon as he is home. In the early days of housebreaking you want to make sure your puppy has a safe place to relieve himself.

It typically takes 4-6 months for a puppy to be fully house-trained, so patience is key.

Don’t worry if your puppy has an accident, it will happen. Just make sure that you have a good pet odor eliminator on hand.


OmegaPet’s pet stain and odor remover is formulated to eat away at odor-causing bacteria caused by urine.  Using a pet urine smell remover will ensure that your puppy does not try to eliminate in the same spot in your home.

Take good care of your puppy

Taking care of your puppy is not just about training; it is about proper grooming and hygiene too.

Just remember - consistency is key. Make sure you are consistent in everything you do so that your puppy doesn’t get confused. While training might seem tough and like a lot of work, keep in mind that you are ultimately working towards building a strong, everlasting bond with your new best friend.
