Maybe you are paranoid that the social distancing will mean you can't give your puppy the best start in life?
To ensure your puppy grows into a happy and balanced member of your family he needs to meet new people, experience new places and get used to your everyday family 'routine' , and all the usual your comings and going that happen on a day to day basis.
This might feel impossible to do during lockdown, and failure to properly train your puppy could mean he turns into a teenage tearaway that is a nightmare to walk, who is frightened of strangers and barks fearfully at people and dogs, or doesn't want to leave your house for a walk.
Are you not sure if you are 'getting it right'?
Perhaps you feel overwhelmed with advice from anyone and everyone. Are you looking how to stop your puppy biting, mouthing and nipping?
Channeling the Behaviour
We can channel their chewing towards appropriate chews or you may want to take up the opportunity to play with them with a toy and show them they can have that in their mouth instead!
Be one step ahead!
If you can preempt this behaviour it is good to have suitable chews or Kongs on hand to give to your dog to create a calming activities for your pup.
Take up the Opportunity
Playing with your dog will help build a great relationship between you and you can use play to show them what is suitable to put their mouths on. Toy switch is a fab game that not only teaches your dog to give an item up, but also that playing with you is super fun!
Calming strokes is another tool for your toolbox which can help to calm excited puppies. Have a crate or puppy pen or quiet space that is always available for your puppy as they will need some settle time away from the action.
