There are as many ways to raise a Longhaired Whippet puppy as there are to caring for a kid. In fact, one way per family at least! But most of us agree that when it pertains to kids, some things are universal and undeniable. Here are three things that a great deal of individuals just do not think of when it pertains to raising their Longhaired Whippets, nevertheless. I can’t count how many times have we heard, “My Longhaired Whippet just won’t listen to me”, or “He just will not act!”
Longhaired Whippets do not comprehend English till we train them.
The thing we all enjoy about Longhaired Whippet puppies the most is the way they live for us, the fact that they focus all they have on us, the fact that our lives end up being theirs. In the start, they study us to discover our body language, our facial expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Want to head out?” one day, “Have to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO find out what we desire, it is because we have gotten the leash and moved toward the door with a pleased face! If you want to speed up his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Pick a command for EACH behavior and persevere. Teach those in your household to use the same words and commands, and your Longhaired Whippet puppy will surprise you at just how much faster he learns.
A young Longhaired Whippet puppy’s metabolic process is racing along faster than we believe.
The more youthful your Longhaired Whippet is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs to fuel his metabolic process, and the more frequently he needs to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Longhaired Whippet in weeks and his size identify how frequently he must head out. One time an hour is not too much for a big 6-week old puppy, particularly if it is summertime. Longhaired Whippets enjoy the amazing smells outdoors, so there is no excuse to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks old. Right after a nap, after he consumes and after grooming are the key times, and he will alert you. If he is happily chewing a toy and gets up unexpectedly with his nose to the floor, move quickly! And each time he goes potty outside, praise him to high paradise! “What a great PUP!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so forth. Longhaired Whippets like our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Longhaired Whippets live for our facial expressions and body language.
Considering this, the worst penalty you ever need to provide your Longhaired Whippet is a scowl and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so unhappy. He will learn from the lesson, I ensure it. But his attention span is only 3-5 minutes, so do not chastise him any longer. Love him up and give him your delighted face once again. Physical penalty is never required. Make use of constant commands and loving appreciation and he will understand what you want of him prior to you understand. He will become a master of your body movement and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are numerous elements of training your Longhaired Whippet puppy well. Loving kindness works just as well for Longhaired Whippet pups as it does with children, creating a happy, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life.
