There are definitely as many methods to care for a American Akita puppy as there are to rearing a kid. In fact, one method per household at minimum! However most of us agree that when it comes to kids, some things are universal and indisputable. Here are three things that a great deal of people just do not consider when it comes to raising their American Akitas, however. I can’t count how many times have we heard, “My American Akita simply will not listen to me”, or “He just won’t act!”
American Akitas don’t understand English till we teach them.
The thing all of us enjoy about American Akita puppies the most is the way they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the way our lives become theirs. In the beginning, they study us to learn our body movement, our expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we state, “Need to go out?” one day, “Have to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO find out what we want, it is because we have gotten the leash and moved toward the door with a pleased face! If you wish to speed up his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH action and stay with it. Teach all in your household to use the same words and commands, and your American Akita puppy will amaze you at just how much quicker he figures it out.
A young American Akita puppy’s metabolic process is racing along faster than we think.
The more youthful your American Akita is, the more quickly he is growing, the more food and water he requires to sustain his metabolism, and the more frequently he needs to go potty. Do not penalize your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your American Akita in weeks and his size establish how often he needs to head out. One time an hour is not too often for a large 6-week old puppy, especially if it is summertime. American Akitas love the interesting smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks old. Right after a nap, after he eats and after grooming are the essential times, and he will alert you. If he is gladly chewing a toy and gets up all of a sudden with his nose to the flooring, let him out quickly! And every time he goes potty outside, applaud him to high heaven! “What a good BOY!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so on. American Akitas like our delighted faces, and they will do anything to get it.
American Akitas live for our facial expressions and body movement.
Given this, the worst penalty you ever can provide your American Akita is a grimace and to turn away from him. You can see his tail fall down and his face get so unhappy. He will learn the lesson, I ensure it. However his attention span is just 3-5 minutes, so do not chastise him any further. Love him up and give him your pleased face once again. Physical penalty is never ever essential. Work with consistent commands and loving appreciation and he will know what you want of him prior to you understand. He will end up being a master of your body movement and expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are numerous aspects of training your American Akita puppy well. Loving generosity works just as well for American Akita pups as it does with kids, producing a happy, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These three crucial tips, utilized regularly with confidence, will start him well on his way.
