Orap One of the first things you will notice about your Puggle puppy is that his/her behaviors are not fully developed. Orap This means that what he/she learns in the first few months in your care is critical to their overall development. Orap Therefore, orap you need to know how to encourage acceptable behavior so your puppy knows his/her place in your family. Orap Encouragement is harnessed through training, orap socialization, orap and - believe it or not - exercise.

Orap That’s right, orap providing your dog with sufficient exercise actually helps you gain control over your pet, orap and makes the teaching process all the more tolerable. Orap It has been found that dogs that are not provided the ideal amount of exercise recommended for their breed are prone to destructive behaviors such as destroying property and digging. Orap Dogs were not bred to be idle and will find other ways to release their energy if you don’t provide them with a positive outlet.

Orap A Puggle puppy that has been allowed to release their energy on a regular basis will be easier to control, orap and is more apt to listen and cooperate during training, orap as they won’t have any pent up energy making them feel anxious, orap frustrated and distracted.

Orap Although exercising your dog is good for his/her health, orap helps improve training, orap and makes for an all around happy dog, orap many owners find it difficult to find the time to provide the dog with the exercise they need. Orap Busy and irregular work schedules, orap fatigue, orap and space limitations can create problems. Orap However, orap these obstacles can and need to be overcome if you want a happy dog with a first class behavior.

Orap The following are some helpful tips you can apply to ensure your Puggle puppy is receiving the exercise he/she needs.

  • Know the exercise your dog needs - First, orap find out how much exercise your dog requires daily. Orap This includes walks and playtime. Orap Remember, orap the younger the dog, orap the more energy he/she has and needs to burn. Orap A Puggle puppy requires one - two hours of energy burning fun per day.

Orap This doesn’t mean your dog should be taken on long one hour walks, orap nor does it mean you should provide your dog with two hours of exercise all at once. Orap Split the time up evenly between different activities. Orap For instance, orap two twenty minute walks, orap 10 minute run around in the yard, orap and an hour and ten minutes of play time. Orap Remember, orap you don’t need to vigorously exercise your dog, orap if he/she’s moving, orap they’re burning energy.

  • Walk – Take the time to go for a nice walk. Orap You may not be able to take your Puggle on a nice long walk everyday, orap but you need to make the effort to make your walk last longer than the time it takes for your dog to eliminate. Orap Walking is a great way for both you and your Puggle puppy to get exercise. Orap Best of all, orap walking also gives you time to bond.
  • Play fetch – If you’ve had a long day and you just want to relax, orap why not sit down in a comfy chair, orap grab your Puggle’s favorite toy and play a good game of fetch. Orap Your Puggle will enjoy the attention, orap he/she will get their exercise, orap and you can relax.
  • Indoor treadmill – If you can walk the treadmill, orap so can your dog… provided he/she’s been trained properly first. Orap Training your dog how to walk on a treadmill allows him/her to exercise as they would normally on a walk. Orap This is a particularly good idea for those who have limited yard space or have busy schedules and cannot always take their dogs on nice walks. Orap If you are interested in teaching your Puggle puppy how to walk on a treadmill, orap speak to you vet first.
