There are truly as many ways to care for a German Longhaired Pointer puppy as there are to caring for a child. In fact, one method per family at least! But most of us concur that when it concerns children, a few things are universal and undeniable. Here are 3 things that a lot of people just do not think of when it comes to raising their German Longhaired Pointers, however. I can’t count how many times have I heard, “My German Longhaired Pointer just won’t listen to me”, or “He simply won’t behave!”

German Longhaired Pointers don’t comprehend English up until we train them.

The main thing all of us love about German Longhaired Pointer puppies most is the way in which they live for us, the fact that they focus all they have on us, the method our lives become theirs. In the start, they study us to learn our body movement, our facial expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Need 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 approached the door with a pleased face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Select a command for EACH behavior and stay with it. Teach all in your household to use the very same words and commands, and your German Longhaired Pointer puppy will impress you at just how much faster he catches on.

A young German Longhaired Pointer puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we believe.

The younger your German Longhaired Pointer is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs to fuel his metabolic process, and the more often 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 German Longhaired Pointer in weeks and his size establish how typically he must go out. One time per hour is not too much for a big 6-week old puppy, particularly if it is summertime. German Longhaired Pointers like 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 essential times, and he will notify you. If he is gladly chewing a toy and gets up suddenly with his nose to the flooring, move rapidly! And whenever he goes potty outside, praise him to high heaven! “What an excellent PUP!”, “GREAT go potty!” and the like. German Longhaired Pointers like our pleased faces, and they will do anything to get it.

German Longhaired Pointers live for our facial expressions and body movement.

Considering this, the worst penalty you ever need to give your German Longhaired Pointer is a grimace and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so sad. He will learn the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention span is just 3-5 minutes, so do not chastise him any longer. Love him up and show him your delighted face once again. Physical punishment is never required. Use constant commands and loving praise and he will know what you want of him before you know. He will become a master of your body language and expressions in no time at all.

Naturally there are many elements of training your German Longhaired Pointer puppy well. Caring generosity works just as well for German Longhaired Pointer puppies as it does with kids, creating a delighted, well-adjusted and obedient dog for life. These 3 essential tips, utilized consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
