Playtime just before bed is a good way to get a puppy tired enough to sleep soundly. Also, make sure to put away food and water in the early evening. This will reduce middle of the night bathroom trips. It's also a good idea to encourage an elimination before bed. If a puppy sleeps for a few hours and then starts crying, it probably needs the bathroom. You'll have to get up and take it to the toilet area. At the start, you may still have to get up at 4:30 AM in the morning, for a couple of weeks. It's like having a new baby! But, if it cries incessantly, the puppy is likely scared to be alone. A little tough love is the best remedy. A soothing hand to comfort the puppy is fine, but, don't cuddle it. Let the puppy cry as hard as it is. Hopefully, within a night or two, it will adjust to sleeping alone. Whereas a human baby will cry, with a puppy, a puppy will mow, when they have any confusion. Luckily, most experts agree, at 8 to 10 weeks of age, puppies gain Cognitive Learning Activity. Responsible play leads to proper socialization, and sets the foundation for training. Proper leash training is critical for keeping dogs safe and secure. It got to be comfortable on that leash, so that we can control their environment. It is very normal for him to bite at it, and, feel at it to see what it is that's around them. They are very curious about it. What we don't want to do is to pull on that leash... This sound means, "Good dog. I like what you did. You win a prize." Always call them in a happy voice. The crazier you act, the happier you act, the more likely they are going to... they are going to come to you. Very important to incorporate visual and verbal signals with 'Stay'. Stay! One, two, three! Yes! Very nice! It always has to be eye to eye. This is where training happens. Teaching a dog is not about dominating him, it's about communicating with him. When a puppy is very young, they have no sphincter control. Anything that's in the belly, or, in the intestines could push straight out. Accidents are inevitable with puppies, because, the bladder is still developing. Pick a toilet area that's easy to find. Put them in a neat little corner off to the periphery of their play area. It's a good idea to start house-breaking by 6 to 8 weeks. Each time you take the puppy out, you want to have an identifiable word. Outside! And, take the puppy to the door! The key to house-breaking is routine and reward. Deliberate us of affection and attention is a must. No puppy will be house-broken overnight. Accidents happen. When they do, harsh discipline will get you nowhere. You never correct the potty-accident in the house. Rubbing your dog's nose, and spanking them, to try and relay the point that "Look, you've just done a bad thing!", is absolutely ineffective. At 12 weeks old, your puppy is starting to look and act more like a dog. But, family members still need to handle with care. A puppy is much more like a young child, than a stuffed animal. Between 8 and 12 weeks, it's important to begin socialization and obedience training. The first time you're able to see you teach your puppy how to sit down, the first time you're able to successfully get that puppy to go potty outside, you feel like you've run a marathon. It's now time to expose your puppy to as many experiences as possible. But, it's important to keep the environment controlled and safe. Avoid extreme temperatures for sure. Between 8 and 12 weeks, puppies are also specifically vulnerable, as they go through a vaccination program. Make sure that any dogs you introduce were healthy and vaccinated. Every puppy is unique. And, some breeds develop quicker than others. But, in general, at 8 to 12 weeks, puppies are specifically vulnerable to diseases. Puppies are ready to explore. But, keep them in a safe temperature-controlled environment. Training and socialization should definitely be well underway. And remember, it's still more like an infant, than a robust adult dog.
