There are truly as many ways to care for a English Water Spaniel puppy as there are to rearing a kid. In fact, one way per household at minimum! However the majority of us concur that when it pertains to kids, certain things are universal and indisputable. Here are 3 things that a lot of people simply do not think of when it comes to raising their English Water Spaniels, nevertheless. How many times have I heard, “My English Water Spaniel just will not listen to me”, or “He simply will not act!”
English Water Spaniels do not comprehend English till we train them.
The thing all of us love about English Water Spaniel puppies most is the fact that they live for us, the fact that they focus all they have on us, the fact that our lives end up being theirs. In the beginning, 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, “Want to go 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 approached the door with a delighted face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH action and stick with it. Teach all in your family to utilize the exact same words and commands, and your English Water Spaniel puppy will amaze you at just how much quicker he learns.
A young English Water Spaniel puppy’s metabolic process is racing along faster than we believe.
The younger your English Water Spaniel is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs to sustain his metabolic process, and the more often he needs to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking error. These are YOUR fault. The age of your English Water Spaniel in weeks and his size establish how frequently he needs to go out. One time an hour is not too often for a large 6-week old puppy, especially if it is summer. English Water Spaniels enjoy the exciting smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks old. 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 all of a sudden with his nose to the floor, let him out rapidly! And each time he goes potty outside, applaud him to high heaven! “What a great PUPPY!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so on. English Water Spaniels enjoy our pleased faces, and they will do anything to get it.
English Water Spaniels live for our facial expressions and body language.
Considering this, the worst punishment you ever need to provide your English Water Spaniel is a frown and to turn away from him. You can see his tail drop and his face get so miserable. He will figure out the lesson, I ensure it. But his attention span is just 3-5 minutes, so do not deride him any more. Love him up and give him your delighted face once again. Physical punishment is never ever required. Work with consistent commands and caring praise and he will know what you want of him before you know. He will end up being a master of your body language and expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are lots of aspects of training your English Water Spaniel puppy well. Loving compassion works just as well for English Water Spaniel puppies as it does with children, developing a pleased, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These 3 essential ideas, utilized consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
