Be Consistent With the New Puppy's Rules

The time to start training your new puppy is on the day it joins your family. Don't expect perfection. Puppies have accidents. They forget the rules at times and sometimes, their curiosity causes trouble for them in areas where rules haven't been established. The best way to help your puppy learn the rules is to make the rules reasonable and to be consistent with your expectations.


If, in the beginning, you allow them to jump on you, chew on your shoes, or engage in any other unacceptable behavior, it will be much harder to break them of a bad habit than to prevent them from developing the habit. Don't make training a confusing event for your new puppy. Always be sure to reward good behavior.
