The Three Rs of Labrador Puppy Education

The Three Rs of Labrador Puppy Education:

1) Read!

– A dog’s brain is like a sponge; it absorbs everything that is put into its mouth. If you don’t read, your pup will not learn anything new.

You need to read every day so your pup learns from what you teach him. Reading books or magazines are good ways to get started with reading. But if you want to really understand something, then go out and explore the world around you!

2) Reward!

– Your pup needs to feel rewarded for doing right. So make sure you give him treats for doing things correctly.

For example, if he gets up after being told “sit” and walks over to the other side of the room, reward him with a treat. Or if he sits down on command but doesn’t immediately turn over and lie down, reward him with a treat.

3) Repeat!

– Never let your pup sit still for too long. Always keep him moving.

If he is sitting quietly, praise him and continue to move him around until he starts to get restless again. Then take him outside where you can have fun together!
