How To Train A Naughty Dog: 3 Rules To Help You
Rule 1 – Do Not Overfeed Your Puppy!
Puppies are very sensitive to any kind of food or drink they might get from humans. They may not eat it at all, but if they have had too much water, then their stomach will start hurting them. If they have eaten something that was poisonous, then they could die within 24 hours.
It is better to feed your puppy only once in a while. When you give him too much food, he may become aggressive towards other dogs and even cats because he feels that he got nothing left after eating so much. Feeding him too often can cause him to lose weight rapidly which means that his coat will fall out and he won’t grow anymore.
If you want to prevent your puppy from becoming aggressive towards other animals, then feed him less frequently than every 4 hours. If you need to feed him more often, just make sure that he gets enough water.
Rule 2 – Never Force Feed Your Puppy!
Force feeding a puppy is against the law in most countries. When an owner hurts a pet, then the owner can get in huge trouble. If you force feed your puppy too much food, then his stomach will start hurting and he will feel sick. This can cause the puppy to vomit.
When you are done force feeding, you need to make sure that the puppy has enough water. If your dog doesn’t have enough water, then the food starts rotting inside of his stomach. This will cause the dog to be very sick and he might die.
The best thing that you can do is to make sure that the dog eats only once per day or every other day. This should prevent him from rotting and keep his stomach in good condition. If you absolutely have to force feed your pet, then make sure that he drinks at least 5 gallons of water.
Rule 3 – Be Careful With Bones!
Puppies are naturally attracted to bones. They like chewing on them and sometimes they even try to eat them. It is best to never give your puppy a bone. If you do, then there is a chance that he will break a tooth and choke on the bone itself.
If you take a look at the picture below, you can see the effects of a foreign body in the throat.
As you can see, the bone has pierced through the tongue and it has punctured a hole in the trachea. The bone itself is preventing the puppy from breathing properly. He can’t even bark anymore, let alone eat or drink.
Always keep an eye on your pet and never give him anything that he could choke on. Make sure that you take away any small toys or even a cigarette butt before he even has a chance to put it in his mouth. If you see him go after something, then make a loud noise to distract him before he puts anything in his mouth.
