There exists as many ways to rear a Field Spaniel puppy as there are to raising a child. In truth, one method per household at minimum! But the majority of us agree that when it comes to kids, certain things are universal and undisputed. Here are 3 things that a great deal of individuals just do not consider when it pertains to raising their Field Spaniels, however. I can’t count how many times have I heard, “My Field Spaniel simply won’t listen to me”, or “He just won’t act!”
Field Spaniels don’t understand English till we train them.
The thing we all like about Field Spaniel puppies the most is the way they live for us, the method they focus all they have on us, the way our lives end up being 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, “Want to go 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. Pick a command for EACH habit and stay with it. Teach those in your family to use the exact same words and commands, and your Field Spaniel puppy will amaze you at how much quicker he catches on.
A young Field Spaniel puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we think.
The more youthful your Field Spaniel is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs 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 Field Spaniel in weeks and his size establish how often he must head out. Once each hour is not too often for a big 6-week old puppy, particularly if it is summer. Field Spaniels love 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 alert you. If he is happily chewing a toy and gets up suddenly with his nose to the flooring, act rapidly! And whenever he goes potty outside, applaud him to high heaven! “What an excellent BOY!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and the like. Field Spaniels like our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Field Spaniels live for our facial expressions and body movement.
Because of this, the worst penalty you ever can provide your Field Spaniel is a scowl 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 ensure it. But his attention span is only 3-5 minutes, so do not deride him any more. Love him up and give him your happy face again. Physical penalty is never needed. Use consistent commands and loving praise and he will understand what you desire of him prior to you know. He will end up being a master of your body language and expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are numerous aspects of training your Field Spaniel puppy well. Loving compassion works just as well for Field Spaniel puppies as it does with children, creating a delighted, well-adjusted and obedient dog for life. These 3 important suggestions, used regularly with self-confidence, will start him well on his way.
