There are definitely as many methods to raise a West Siberian Laika puppy as there are to raising a child. In fact, one method per family in general! However the majority of us concur that when it pertains to children, a few things are universal and undisputed. Here are three things that a great deal of people simply do not remember when it pertains to raising their West Siberian Laikas, nevertheless. I can’t count how many times have we heard, “My West Siberian Laika simply will not listen to me”, or “He simply won’t behave!”
West Siberian Laikas don’t understand English till we train them.
The main thing we all enjoy about West Siberian Laika puppies most is the way in which they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the way our lives become theirs. In the start, they study us to learn our body movement, our expressions and our language. Till we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we state, “Want to head out?” one day, “Need to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the third day, if they DO find out what we want, it is due to the fact that we have actually gotten the leash and moved toward the door with a happy face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH habit and persevere. Tell all in your family to utilize the same words and commands, and your West Siberian Laika puppy will amaze you at just how much faster he learns.
A young West Siberian Laika puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we believe.
The younger your West Siberian Laika is, the more quickly he is growing, the more food and water he requires to fuel his metabolism, and the more regularly he needs to go potty. Do not penalize your puppy when he makes a house-breaking error. These are YOUR fault. The age of your West Siberian Laika in weeks and his size determine how typically he needs to head out. Once per hour is not too often for a big 6-week old puppy, specifically if it is summertime. West Siberian Laikas enjoy the interesting smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks of age. Right after a nap, after he consumes and after grooming are the key times, and he will alert you. If he is gladly chewing a toy and gets up unexpectedly with his nose to the floor, let him out rapidly! And whenever he goes potty outside, praise him to high heaven! “What a good PUPPY!”, “GOOD go potty!” and the like. West Siberian Laikas like our delighted faces, and they will do anything to get it.
West Siberian Laikas live for our expressions and body language.
Because of this, the worst penalty you ever need to offer your West Siberian Laika is a grimace and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so sad. He will learn from the lesson, I guarantee it. However his attention period is only 3-5 minutes, so do not chastise him any longer. Love him up and offer him your happy face again. Physical punishment is never ever necessary. Use consistent commands and loving appreciation and he will know what you desire of him before you understand. He will become a master of your body movement and expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are numerous aspects of training your West Siberian Laika puppy well. Caring compassion works just as well for West Siberian Laika pups as it does with children, producing a happy, well-adjusted and obedient dog for life. These three important pointers, utilized consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
