Puppies are cute and adorable balls of fur – until they aren’t anymore. Young dogs live off of instinct and their behavior forms as a result of their environment. Teaching your puppy to go to the toilet outside or to go to their bed when they’ve been naughty is a challenge that many owners find frustrating when their dog refuses to listen.
Molding your dog’s behavior shouldn’t have to be so hard. Smacking or shouting at your dog isn’t a productive way of disciplining their behavior. In most cases, this type of action will make your dog feel insecure and threatened – that’s not ideal.
Crate training your dog is a practical way to reinforce the rules for your dog without taking physical action, and it’s also useful for them to have a place to make their own.
