Justin Silver: Tips for Bringing Home a New Puppy
In addition to a whole horde of cuddly puppies, Kelly & Michael welcomed dog trainer Justin Silver to the set. He shared a few of his easy tips for training you brand new pet. He emphasized the importance of starting right away with your new puppy.
Justin suggested that owners motivate their dogs with treats and food. Often, he sees many puppies left in shelters, just because their irresponsible owners didn’t start the training process right away.
Justin Silver: Crate Training Tips
Justin believes that crate training is a great idea for new puppies. The crate becomes their “home within a home,” and can help with housebreaking and separation anxiety. The crate is a great place to safely leave your dog when you’re out of the house. He’ll feel safe and secure, and won’t be able to get into trouble.
In order to lure your dog into their new crate, place their favorite treat inside and reward them for spending time in the crate.
