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

Pmdd That’s right, pmdd providing your dog with sufficient exercise actually helps you gain control over your pet, pmdd and makes the teaching process all the more tolerable. Pmdd 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. Pmdd 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.

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

Pmdd Although exercising your dog is good for his/her health, pmdd helps improve training, pmdd and makes for an all around happy dog, pmdd many owners find it difficult to find the time to provide the dog with the exercise they need.

Pmdd However, pmdd these obstacles can and need to be overcome if you want a happy dog with a first class behavior.

Pmdd 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, pmdd find out how much exercise your dog requires daily. Pmdd This includes walks and playtime.

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

  • Walk – Take the time to go for a nice walk. Pmdd You may not be able to take your Puggle on a nice long walk everyday, pmdd but you need to make the effort to make your walk last longer than the time it takes for your dog to eliminate. Pmdd Walking is a great way for both you and your Puggle puppy to get exercise. Pmdd Best of all, pmdd walking also gives you time to bond.
  • Play fetch – If you’ve had a long day and you just want to relax, pmdd why not sit down in a comfy chair, pmdd grab your Puggle’s favorite toy and play a good game of fetch. Pmdd Your Puggle will enjoy the attention, pmdd he/she will get their exercise, pmdd and you can relax.
  • Indoor treadmill – If you can walk the treadmill, pmdd so can your dog… provided he/she’s been trained properly first.
