Training Your New Cocker Spaniel Puppy
Cocker Spaniels have been one of the most popular breeds in America for over one hundred years. The dog may be somewhat small in stature, but don’t let its size full you; this dog has incredible endurance and a drive that rivals any dog twice its size. Though the breed can be a great family companion, training must begin early on if you expect the dog to understand its place in the household .Here are 7 important tips for training your Cocker Spaniel:
Training should begin as soon as you bring your new puppy home. Though your puppy won’t be permitted entry into a formal obedience class until it receives at least two sets of vaccinations, training can most certainly begin at home. The easiest way to start training your new puppy is to praise him every time you catch him performing a desired behavior. For instance, when your puppy sits on his own, tell him, “Good sit!” Follow your praise with a treat and you’ll not only be positively rewarding his actions, but you’ll help him associate words with his actions.
If you don’t get your puppy used to being handled, trips to the vet will be stressful for both of you. Be sure to play with your puppy’s ears every day, grab his feet and gently squeeze, manipulate his toes and move his legs. Put your fingers in your puppy’s mouth, lifting his lip and rubbing his gums. If you do these things with your puppy several times a day, your visits to the veterinarian will be smooth and easy.
If you want your Cocker to look his best, he’ll need to be groomed several times a year. Spend time grooming your puppy at least once a week. Chances are you won’t want to take scissors to your baby’s coat, but you can brush him, clean his ears and clip his toenails. These are all things that a groomer will be doing and the sooner you get him used to it, the better.
4.Socialize with People
You should being socializing your puppy as soon as possible. Make sure that his experiences with humans are positive ones. Let new people give your puppy treats, hold him and gently pet him. Your puppy should always view humans in a positive light and exposing him to good experiences will help him do so. Try to meet at least ten new people each week.
5.Socialize with Animals
Once your veterinarian gives you the go-ahead, you should begin socializing your puppy with other animals. This is typically safe to do after your puppy has received his second or third set of vaccines. Enroll your new dog in a puppy obedience class, take him to the dog park and take him to the pet store. Each positive interaction that he has with other animals at a young age will make him a more social adult.
6.Formal Obedience Classes
When your dog is between three and six months old, he will be welcome in a formal obedience class. These classes normally meet once a week for approximately eight weeks and are taught by a professional. You will learn how to teach your dog the basic obedience commands: sit, down, stay, heel and come. It is imperative that you practice what you’ve learned several times a day for at least ten minutes per session.
House training is one of the most difficult things to accomplish for new puppy owners. To house train your puppy, take him outside on a leash, and walk him to the same spot in the yard every time. Stand still and quietly repeat, “Go potty!” as you wait for your dog to eliminate. As soon as he urinates or defecates, praise and treat him and walk back in the house. Your puppy will need to go outside within ten minutes of eating or drinking and immediately upon waking, playing or being greeted. Additionally, you should plan on taking your puppy outside to eliminate at least once every two hours.
Cocker Spaniels can make fantastic family pets. If you follow these 7 important tips, you’ll have a social, well-trained adult dog for many years to come.
