So far, we've talked about dogs as companions and how you can fit them into your life. But long before that stage, you have a bigger task. Looking after your puppy. Believe us, that is no easy task. Puppies are undeniably adorable and appealing, but they need lots of exercise, training, and supervision. They demand attention all the time. Depending on your work schedule and the ages of your children, do you really have time to handle a boisterous pup Pups are born with innate traits, which manifest themselves as the dog grows up. If you start with a slightly older dog, you will have some idea in advance of your dog's personality and preferences. If your main concern is to have a family dog that will be safe with your children, for example, you can search for a dog whose personality already shows those traits. Most animal shelters and rescue groups evaluate their dogs for key temperament issues and can readily assist you in finding a dog that will suit your lifestyle.
You can integrate positive reinforcement into many aspects of your life. When my husband wanted to increase the number of patients he saw in a day, he pushed his staff to speed up and become more efficient. It didn't work. Then I suggested trying positive reinforcement. He offered a bonus if a certain goal was met. This time, productivity increased, and everyone was happier. Making positive reinforcement part of your life is as simple as putting more energy in saying thank you and rewarding people when they do something you like, and less in complaining when they do something wrong.
For any of this training to be useful, it has to be incorporated into your everyday life with your dog. Using the sit-stay when you get out of the car and at doors in your house are examples of training exercises becoming an integral part of your life. Training exercises isolate what you are trying to teach your dog in situations where you and your dog can concentrate.
Raising a puppy is a comparatively simple project, providing you make liberal use of patience and common sense. The young puppy cannot be expected to act like a grown dog he needs direction and supervision.

You will also spend a lot of time cleaning up after them. If your life is already hectic, do you really have the time
Quickly fold your arms and hold them across your face. Twist your body to the right or left (depending from which direction the dog leaps) as the dog jumps at you. The upper arm or shoulder should strike the dog and knock him off balance. Repeat this maneuver if he attacks again. Call for help. If the dog tries to get behind you, pivot with him. Stand still when he stops attacking and move only when he has retreated to a safe distance. You may get bitten, but your defensive tactics will reduce the severity of the attack and save your life.

Although the Dachshund's unusual form makes it an ideal hunting dog, and many Dachsies are still used for this purpose (see the previous section), the Dachshund's more common role today is one of companion, friend, and resident court jester.

Anne called me because she was having problems with him. Schnauzers have big personalities, they have a lot of attitude. Teddy was running away a lot and was pushing Anne around at home. When I met Anne, I saw that she was a small person, just over five feet tall. She was also slight in personality and was a very nervous, insecure person. I sensed that Teddy was aware of this too. It was clear almost immediately that, as long as she remained like this, Teddy was never going to relinquish the role of leader within their domestic pack. As I chatted to Anne, I explained that the onus was on her to change things. For the first time in your life I want you to take charge, I told her.
