There are undoubtedly as many ways to raise a Labrador Retriever puppy as there are to raising a child. In fact, one way per family at minimum! However the majority of us agree that when it comes to kids, some things are universal and undeniable. Here are 3 things that a great deal of people simply do not consider when it concerns raising their Labrador Retrievers, however. I can’t count how many times have I heard, “My Labrador Retriever simply will not listen to me”, or “He simply won’t act!”
Labrador Retrievers do not comprehend English until we train them.
The main thing we all enjoy about Labrador Retriever puppies the most is the way they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the method our lives end up being theirs. In the beginning, they study us to learn our body movement, our facial expressions and our language. Till we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Wanna head out?” one day, “Need to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO figure out what we want, it is because we have actually picked up the leash and moved toward the door with a happy face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Select a command for EACH habit and persevere. Teach those in your household to utilize the exact same words and commands, and your Labrador Retriever puppy will impress you at how much quicker he catches on.
A young Labrador Retriever puppy’s metabolic process is racing along faster than we believe.
The more youthful your Labrador Retriever is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he needs to sustain his metabolic process, and the more frequently he needs to go potty. Do not penalize your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Labrador Retriever in weeks and his size identify how typically he needs to head out. Once per hour is not too often for a big 6-week old puppy, specifically if it is summer. Labrador Retrievers like the interesting smells outdoors, so there is no excuse 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 happily chewing a toy and gets up suddenly with his nose to the floor, let him out quickly! And each time he goes potty outside, applaud him to high paradise! “What an excellent PUP!”, “EXCELLENT go potty!” and so on. Labrador Retrievers enjoy our delighted faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Labrador Retrievers live for our expressions and body language.
As a result of this, the worst penalty you ever can offer your Labrador Retriever is a scowl and to turn away from him. You can see his tail fall down and his face get so sad. He will learn from the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention period is only 3-5 minutes, so do not scorn him any more than that. Love him up and give him your pleased face again. Physical penalty is never necessary. Work with constant commands and caring praise and he will understand what you want of him before you know. He will become a master of your body movement and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are lots of elements of training your Labrador Retriever puppy well. Loving compassion works just as well for Labrador Retriever pups as it does with kids, developing a happy, well-adjusted and obedient dog for life. These three important tips, utilized consistently with confidence, will start him well on his way.
