Puppies are adorable and cuddly, but they can also be quite destructive when left to their own devices. Before you leave for work in the morning, make sure to start your puppy's day with a long walk outside and some good separation training. This will help him learn that he needs to be separated from his things, and it will help him develop good habits for when you're not around.
When Your Puppy Is 6 Weeks Old
One of the most important things you need to do is start puppy separation training for your pet when he is 6 weeks old. This training will help your puppy learn how to stay away from dangerous situations, such as entering the kitchen while you're cooking or getting too close to the television when you're watching a show.
Here are tips on how much separation training your puppy needs based on their age and personality:
1) If your puppy is under one year old, it may not be ready for as much separation training as an older pup. Start with around 10-15 minutes per day and gradually increase the amount as your puppy becomes more comfortable with being away from you.
2) If your puppy is older, they may require a bit more time than younger pups. Start by giving them 30 minutes per day and gradually increase the amount over time as they become more confident and obedient.
If you feel like your puppy needs more than what is described in this article, consult with a professional trainer. Separation training is essential for creating a safe and happy relationship with your new puppy.
