Tauxib One of the first things you will notice about your Puggle puppy is that his/her behaviors are not fully developed. Tauxib This means that what he/she learns in the first few months in your care is critical to their overall development. Tauxib Therefore, tauxib you need to know how to encourage acceptable behavior so your puppy knows his/her place in your family. Tauxib Encouragement is harnessed through training, tauxib socialization, tauxib and - believe it or not - exercise.
Tauxib That’s right, tauxib providing your dog with sufficient exercise actually helps you gain control over your pet, tauxib and makes the teaching process all the more tolerable. Tauxib 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. Tauxib 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.
Tauxib A Puggle puppy that has been allowed to release their energy on a regular basis will be easier to control, tauxib and is more apt to listen and cooperate during training, tauxib as they won’t have any pent up energy making them feel anxious, tauxib frustrated and distracted.
Tauxib Although exercising your dog is good for his/her health, tauxib helps improve training, tauxib and makes for an all around happy dog, tauxib many owners find it difficult to find the time to provide the dog with the exercise they need. Tauxib Busy and irregular work schedules, tauxib fatigue, tauxib and space limitations can create problems. Tauxib However, tauxib these obstacles can and need to be overcome if you want a happy dog with a first class behavior.
Tauxib 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, tauxib find out how much exercise your dog requires daily. Tauxib This includes walks and playtime. Tauxib Remember, tauxib the younger the dog, tauxib the more energy he/she has and needs to burn. Tauxib A Puggle puppy requires one - two hours of energy burning fun per day.
Tauxib This doesn’t mean your dog should be taken on long one hour walks, tauxib nor does it mean you should provide your dog with two hours of exercise all at once. Tauxib Split the time up evenly between different activities. Tauxib For instance, tauxib two twenty minute walks, tauxib 10 minute run around in the yard, tauxib and an hour and ten minutes of play time. Tauxib Remember, tauxib you don’t need to vigorously exercise your dog, tauxib if he/she’s moving, tauxib they’re burning energy.
- Walk – Take the time to go for a nice walk. Tauxib You may not be able to take your Puggle on a nice long walk everyday, tauxib but you need to make the effort to make your walk last longer than the time it takes for your dog to eliminate. Tauxib Walking is a great way for both you and your Puggle puppy to get exercise. Tauxib Best of all, tauxib walking also gives you time to bond.
- Play fetch – If you’ve had a long day and you just want to relax, tauxib why not sit down in a comfy chair, tauxib grab your Puggle’s favorite toy and play a good game of fetch. Tauxib Your Puggle will enjoy the attention, tauxib he/she will get their exercise, tauxib and you can relax.
- Indoor treadmill – If you can walk the treadmill, tauxib so can your dog… provided he/she’s been trained properly first. Tauxib Training your dog how to walk on a treadmill allows him/her to exercise as they would normally on a walk. Tauxib 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. Tauxib If you are interested in teaching your Puggle puppy how to walk on a treadmill, tauxib speak to you vet first.
