3 tips to train your Scottish Terrier puppy

There are as many ways to raise a Scottish Terrier puppy as there are to rearing a child. In reality, one way per family in general! However the majority of us agree that when it concerns kids, a few things are universal and indisputable. Here are three things that a great deal of people just do not consider when it concerns raising their Scottish Terriers, however. How many times have I heard, “My Scottish Terrier just won’t listen to me”, or “He just won’t act!”

Scottish Terriers do not understand English until we train them.

The thing we all like about Scottish Terrier puppies the 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 learn our body language, our facial expressions and our language. Till we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Need to head out?” one day, “Need to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the third day, if they DO figure out what we desire, it is because we have gotten the leash and moved toward the door with a happy face! If you wish to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Select a command for EACH behavior and stay with it. Tell all in your household to utilize the very same words and commands, and your Scottish Terrier puppy will amaze you at just how much quicker he learns.

A young Scottish Terrier puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we believe.

The more youthful your Scottish Terrier is, the more quickly he is growing, the more food and water he needs to fuel his metabolic process, and the more frequently he has to go potty. Do not penalize your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Scottish Terrier in weeks and his size determine how frequently he should head out. Once an hour is not too much for a large 6-week old puppy, specifically if it is summer. Scottish Terriers like the amazing 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 crucial times, and he will alert you. If he is happily chewing a toy and gets up unexpectedly with his nose to the floor, let him out quickly! And whenever he goes potty outside, applaud him to high paradise! “What an excellent BOY!”, “GREAT go potty!” and so forth. Scottish Terriers love our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.

Scottish Terriers live for our facial expressions and body language.

Given this, the worst penalty you ever need to provide your Scottish Terrier is a scowl and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so unhappy. He will figure out the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention period is only 3-5 minutes, so do not deride him any more than that. Love him up and show him your pleased face again. Physical punishment is never required. Utilize constant commands and caring appreciation and he will know what you desire of him prior to you know. He will become a master of your body language and facial expressions in no time at all.

Naturally there are many elements of training your Scottish Terrier puppy well. Caring compassion works just as well for Scottish Terrier puppies as it does with children, developing a happy, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These three essential pointers, utilized consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
