Excited German Shepherd Goes Overboard When Picking Out Her New Toy

The dogs love the toys a lot and so does Mila do. Thus we have curated a list down of things
which you can give your puppy a cool toy and train them a few cool and easy tricks.

Puppy toys generally come in 4 different types:

  • Toys Chewed: This toy helps puppies that alleviate the pain that comes when their new teeth
  • Active toys: This toy helps puppies to receive the exercises they need (like a ball to play
    fetch). This toy is also usually more sturdy and good for playing TUG-OF-WAR.
  • Toys Disorders: These toys are usually busy or learn toys filled with puppy owners with a
    treat that needs to be tried and extract.
  • Comfort toys: These are generally soft toys that can be brought by puppies and hugging.

Lets Start with the training:

In this guide, we will use the term “sign / gift” to show when you have to give a signal that
can be heard to let your dog know he is on the right track, followed by a small food gift. If you
use Clicker to train your dog, this is when you will click then a gift. If you don’t, just
disconnect the sound or unique word that you will only use for training.

For example, say “Yesssss!” In special tones, followed by gifts. For your food rewards, you can use a
combination of dry kibble rations of your puppy, but mix some special foods such as cooked
chicken or bits hot dogs to maintain their attention.

You only need good news on the size of peas. You will use food rewards to train easy tricks
of your puppy, but after they learn it, you will fade food gifts from time to time. You can do
this by choosing just the best examples of the behaviour you requested, chains of several
different tricks together before giving awards and switching to other benefits such as praise
or giving your puppy a favorite toy.

Before starting, make sure you follow some basic guidelines to keep your training sessions
fun and effective. Here are some pro tips:

  • Take time for some short sessions all day and save each session between 5-10 minutes. If
    you go too long, your puppy will get bored and frustrated and come to see the training
    session as a job rather than playing.
  • Think of training as a game and your goal is to help your dog “win” as often as possible. This
    will keep it engaged and eager to learn.
  • Begin to teach any new behaviour in a familiar environment where there is no disturbance
    such as pets or others. After knowing the behaviour that you can bring it to a new place to
    continue to strengthen behaviour and increase the focus.
  • Studying new behaviour in the training session has never been a time for punishment. It will
    only make your puppy training with you. Instead, focus on success that respects and ignores
    failure. Only after your puppy has fully studied new behaviour if you add a direct
    consequence to failure.
