The right age to start teaching your puppy is at about 8 weeks. And where do you start? At the very beginning start by teaching him simple things such as the following.
1 The place where his water bowl is placed.
2 Teach him the location of his food plate.
3 Let him learn the timings of his various meals.
4 Teach him where his bed is placed.
5 He must also learn the timings when he is expected to go to bed and when he should get up.
6 It is most important to teach him where to go to the bathroom.
7 He should know the timings for his walks or runs.
Your puppy must be aware about all of the above routines simply because a puppy simply loves routine. A routine gives him a feeling of security and safety. He feels reassured when he knows what is coming next. As a baby he is not comfortable with surprises - pleasant or unpleasant. Above all a routine gives him the reassurance that he can depend upon you.
At this age he can also learn to respond to some simple instructions such as the following.
1 Obedience - Obey simple commands such as "No" or "Stop That."
2 House breaking - Your 8-week-old infant pup can be introduced to his toilet area. This will be the beginning of his house training. You can make a commitment to take him out to his toilet every 2 hours for him to get used to relieving himself there.
3 Crate training - He should follow your instruction to go to his crate and stay there quietly.
4 Handling - He should learn to stand still while you brush him, clip his nails, or open his mouth to clean his teeth.
5 Mildness - Mildness is a much required quality in a dog. He should know how to take things gently from your hands. Grabbing, biting, or clinging should be firmly discouraged.
