There are without a doubt as many ways to raise a Norwegian Buhund puppy as there are to rearing a kid. In reality, one method per family at least! But most of us concur that when it comes to children, many things are universal and undeniable. Here are three things that a lot of people just do not think of when it comes to raising their Norwegian Buhunds, however. How many times have I heard, “My Norwegian Buhund simply won’t listen to me”, or “He just won’t act!”
Norwegian Buhunds don’t comprehend English till we teach them.
The main thing all of us love about Norwegian Buhund puppies most is the fact that they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the fact that our lives become theirs. In the beginning, they study us to discover our body movement, our expressions and our language. Till we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we state, “Need to head out?” one day, “Have to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO determine what we desire, it is because we have gotten the leash and approached the door with a happy face! If you wish to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH habit and stay with it. Tell all in your family to use the same words and commands, and your Norwegian Buhund puppy will astonish you at just how much quicker he figures it out.
A young Norwegian Buhund puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we think.
The more youthful your Norwegian Buhund is, the more quickly he is growing, the more food and water he requires to sustain his metabolic process, and the more frequently he has to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking error. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Norwegian Buhund in weeks and his size identify how often he must head out. One time per hour is not too often for a big 6-week old puppy, especially if it is summer. Norwegian Buhunds 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 eats and after grooming are the key times, and he will signal you. If he is gladly chewing a toy and gets up unexpectedly with his nose to the floor, act rapidly! And every time he goes potty outside, applaud him to high paradise! “What a good BOY!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so on. Norwegian Buhunds like our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Norwegian Buhunds live for our facial expressions and body language.
Because of this, the worst punishment you ever need to provide your Norwegian Buhund is a frown and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so sad. He will figure out the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention span is just 3-5 minutes, so do not scorn him any longer. Love him up and give him your delighted face again. Physical punishment is never ever needed. Employ consistent commands and caring praise and he will understand what you desire of him prior to you understand. He will end up being a master of your body movement and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are many aspects of training your Norwegian Buhund puppy well. Caring generosity works just as well for Norwegian Buhund puppies as it does with children, creating a delighted, well-adjusted and obedient dog for life. These three crucial tips, used consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
