At what age should I start training my puppy?

What age would be too young for house training, crate training, etc etc..? I wouldn’t want to train my puppy too young but I want to train him at an age which is not too late.

You can start training as soon as you get the puppy home (which should be 6 weeks or after). I began crate training immediately, especially since this takes time. Additionally you should start saying your dogs name often as soon as it gets home. Once you “get to know” your dog and it’s personality, you can start with teaching him/her other skills. I started with sit at about 10 weeks. I did lay down and shake next. “Stay” takes a little more time, but you can also teach “come” at the same time. I didn’t teach “speak” until about a year later. Eventually I decided to teach “high five.” She just learned that one a few months ago and she’s 3 years old. There’s no age that is too late to teach a dog a new trick, contrary to the old saying. Crate training however, I would start with immediately. Good luck!


House training is the first hurdle most pet owners must overcome before having a long – term relationship with their new pet. House training is not an impossible task, but it does require diligent observation of the dog or puppy at all times. Every accident in the house can put completion of house training back a week or more. Although puppies about eight weeks of age are capable of being trained, house training can begin as soon as the puppy enters your home and should be completed by 4 to 6 months of age. The key to successful house training is ample praise when your puppy performs at the appropriate location and constant supervision to prevent possible mistakes in the house.

Hi, I understand that you are looking for some advice or resources to help fully train your dog or fix behavior problems. If a professional dog trainer is not an option at this time, or if you want to trt training your dog on your own (a great way to bond), I’d suggest you

A friend recommened it to me a few years ago, and I was amazed how quickly it worked, which is why I recommend it to others. The dog training academy also has as an excellent home training course.

Dog Training is all about getting your canine to behave well, but some people do it for sports and other entertainment purposes. Some of the other reasons people train their dogs are:

It rewarding since you get a sense of accomplishment once a dog can do something new.
It is a good opportunity to bond with the dog – this is important for the dog and for the owner.
You can make money when you train dogs as a business or for sport.
Training the dog is fun and it challenges the owner and the dog.
Different trainers have different techniques for training their canine. However, some techniques are more effective than others. To learn about the best techniques, visit a registered dog trainer, talk to a veterinarian, or do online or offline research.
There are several types of training that you, or a professional, can explore to train dogs and these are:

1) Behavior and obedience training: One training that is universal is behavior and obedience training. This is done on dogs of all ages, but it is better to start when the canine is a puppy because as they say, it is hard to teach old dogs new tricks. Behavior and obedience dog trainingbrings out the best in the dog and it makes understanding each other easier.

2) House training: House training is very important and it should also start when the dog is still a puppy. House training is all about training the dog to have house manners and to respect your space. There are several techniques used for this and they include crate training and pad training for training the dog to ‘go’ outside.

3) Positive reinforcement: Positive reinforcement is a new type of training approach and it is all about rewarding the dog for good behavior or for learning a new trick. All animals tend to perform better when there is a promise of a reward. Possible rewards are snacks, interaction with other dogs, giving the dog your attention, or giving the dog tug toys – the reward should take into consideration what the dog likes because dogs are different.

4) Negative reinforcement: Negative reinforcement training approach has been used for many years where the dog is punished for failure to learn or to behave properly, but this does not work because it only makes the canine scared and causes it to lose confidence. Negative reinforcement techniques included beatings and electric shocks.

5) Trick training: Trick training is done for fun, by those who want a sports dog, and those involved in other entertainment activities such as the circus. You should choose the dog carefully to avoid frustration because some dogs are easier to train than others.

6) Teething: It is important to train dogs when they are teething because they are under a lot of pain and they usually chew on furniture such as table legs, shoes, and even wallpaper. Possible training techniques for discouraging the chewing are bad-smelling sprays on items that are at risk and giving the dog chew toys.

7) Command training: It is possible to train dogs to follow commands. These commands include ‘sit’, ‘attack’, and ‘fetch’, among others. This requires patience and there are various techniques of dog training that can be used to achieve this such as giving rewards.

You can start training your puppy as soon as you get it weened from its mother. In fact, you can even start training before that. As soon as a dog is able to walk around it can be taught and trained. Its mother trains it from birth, so it is never too young or too old to be trained.

Training starts as soon as you get your puppy home

I’ve trained too many dogs to count. Start training them on day one. But don’t beat their asses over it before 16 weeks. If you provide the mother with a doggie door, she will actually force the puppies to do their business outside as soon as they can withstand the elements. Considering she has to clean up their excrement with her mouth, the motivation makes sence.

You need to begin all those things as soon as you get your puppy home. Think of how confused the pup would be if you let him potty in the house for a week or two, and then one day it wasn’t OK?

I would start from about 7-12 weeks, but nothing to hard just simple sit and stays. Remember to give him a lot of praise when he does something right!
