New Dog for Christmas

There it is, that adorable face wrapped up with a big red bow. This is the gift that probably made someone the best parent in the world, or maybe this was the promise of commitment from the most loving caring significant other. Or perhaps it was the gift of joy and companionship to an elderly or lonely relative. That’s wonderful, who wouldn’t be thrilled? The question, now that the tree is down and everyone is back to their regularly scheduled lives, is what do we do with this puppy?

Whether you have a full time job, live in a small space, or have health issues while a puppy in so many ways can be a blessing it can also be a burden. Since a puppy is a gift that is difficult to return, in order to make the most of your relationship with your new companion you will need to teach the pup some important skills that will help you all live harmoniously together under the same roof.

As a professional dog trainer, I am fortunate to be able to engage in my passion on a full time basis. Being able to help bridge the communication gaps between man’s best friend and man himself is humbling to say the least. A large portion of my students are puppies. Which means, an even larger portion of my human clientele are puppy mommies and daddies. Many of my clients that have acquired or received a puppy, often say, “ What do I do now?” Showing your dog what is acceptable (potty training, sit, stay, etc.) and what isn’t ( jumping, pulling on a leash, etc.) will improve your life and enhance the bond between you and your dog.

It never fails to amaze me how dogs convey utter love, devotion, and loyalty to their humans, no questions asked. They don’t care about your race or religion, whether you are rich or poor, married or not! Your dog invariably will wrap himself around your heart and into your life. No agenda, no ulterior motives; just an endless supply of adoration and faithfulness. (And wet sloppy kisses, lots and lots of wet sloppy kisses!)

I truly believe the world would be a much better place if everyone experienced the love of a dog. They make us kinder, more compassionate humans. However, like most things in life this harmonious give and take love affair between dogs and us doesn’t come without challenges; and this challenge is often called puppyhood. Prepare your home and prepare your family. Spend whatever time you have with your puppy. Find a responsible and reputable trainer, you won’t regret it when they become dogs.
