PupScouts of Hunterdon

With a new season comes new puppies. Are you bringing home a new puppy this fall? If so, check out these Puppy Tips!

Expert Puppy Tips from Hunterdon’s Puppy Experts

  • Someone is always the teacher, and someone is always the learner. Whether you are actively training your puppy or not, she is always learning.
  • Teach your puppy the behaviors you want instead of focusing on the behaviors you don’t want. Change how you think, and you will change your puppy’s behavior.
  • Puppies do what works for them. If jumping up gets them love and attention, your puppy will keep jumping up. Behavior that is rewarded, repeats.
  • Puppies have short attention spans. Train in 5-10 minute sessions throughout the day.
  • Puppies require about 18-20 hours of sleep each day. Be sure to have scheduled nap times.
  • A tired and enriched puppy is a better-behaved puppy. Mental exercise is just as important as physical exercise. Provide your puppy with food puzzle toys to help reduce boredom and tire them out.
  • Teaching the behaviors you want now is easier than fixing unwanted behavior later.

Special offer for Hunterdon Happening readers: Receive an additional 1-hour training session ($100 value) with the purchase of our Puppy Concierge package.

Use code HHBTS. Offer expires 10/31/21.
