There are definitely as many ways to raise a Norfolk Spaniel puppy as there are to caring for a child. In truth, one way per family in general! However the majority of us concur that when it comes to children, a few things are universal and indisputable. Here are 3 things that a lot of people just do not consider when it pertains to raising their Norfolk Spaniels, however. I can’t count how many times have I heard, “My Norfolk Spaniel just will not listen to me”, or “He simply will not act!”
Norfolk Spaniels do not comprehend English up until we teach them.
The main thing we all love about Norfolk Spaniel puppies most is the way in which they live for us, the way 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 language, our expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we state, “Wanna head out?” one day, “Have 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 moved toward the door with a happy face! If you wish to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Choose a command for EACH behavior and stick with it. Tell all in your household to use the exact same words and commands, and your Norfolk Spaniel puppy will surprise you at just how much faster he catches on.
A young Norfolk Spaniel puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we think.
The younger your Norfolk Spaniel is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he requires to fuel his metabolism, and the more regularly he needs to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your Norfolk Spaniel in weeks and his size determine how typically he must go out. One time per hour is not too much for a large 6-week old puppy, specifically if it is summertime. Norfolk Spaniels enjoy the amazing smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks old. Right after a nap, after he eats and after grooming are the essential times, and he will signal you. If he is happily chewing a toy and gets up all of a sudden with his nose to the flooring, act quickly! And whenever he goes potty outside, applaud him to high heaven! “What a good PUPPY!”, “GREAT go potty!” and so on. Norfolk Spaniels enjoy our happy faces, and they will do anything to get it.
Norfolk Spaniels live for our facial expressions and body movement.
Because of this, the worst punishment you ever need to give your Norfolk Spaniel is a frown and to turn away from him. You can see his tail fall down and his face get so serious. He will learn from the lesson, I ensure it. However his attention span is only 3-5 minutes, so do not spurn him any longer. Love him up and show him your delighted face again. Physical punishment is never necessary. Utilize consistent commands and loving appreciation and he will know what you desire of him before you know. He will end up being a master of your body movement and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are lots of aspects of training your Norfolk Spaniel puppy well. Caring compassion works just as well for Norfolk Spaniel pups as it does with children, producing a happy, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These three crucial tips, used regularly with confidence, will start him well on his way.
