Few experiences can match the fun and excitement of bringing home your new puppy!

But puppies aren’t born understanding your house rules!

The trick is to stay ahead of problems and instill good habits before your puppy ever learns bad ones.

Here are some challenges new puppy parents experience:

  • Puppies explore the world by putting everything in their mouths – including your fingers and your belongings!
  • Your new puppy doesn’t yet know how to find his outside “bathroom”, so he will use whatever is nearby just like he did when he was with his siblings.
  • When your puppy is unhappy or needs something, he gets your attention by barking or whining.
  • Walking nicely on a leash doesn’t come naturally, so your puppy must learn how.
  • Choosing a name for your new puppy doesn’t mean that he will know what it means.
  • Your puppy will show he's happy to see you by jumping up– even with muddy paws!

Conflicting puppy training advice from well-meaning family and friends adds to the confusion. Good advice?  Bad advice?  How can you tell the difference?  You often feel embarrassed about not being able to get your puppy to listen to you.  To make matters worse, you're uncertain about what to do about house training “accidents” because you need to get your puppy housebroken ASAP.

Yet, you're a devoted puppy parent. You want to raise your puppy to become a well mannered grown-up dog.  However, you struggle to find the best way to get your puppy to listen to you, stop biting and jumping, and always come when you call him. Despite your best efforts, your puppy still bites your hands, chews your stuff, jumps on the kids, and pees on the floor!

Common Sense Solutions to Puppy Challenges
