Puppy Training Schedule Week By Week
Puppy Training Stage 1: First Day Of Life (Birth)
The first day of life is the most important day for puppies. They are born with their eyes open and they have no idea what will happen next. All they know is that something big is going to happen soon and it’s time to get up!
It is very important that you take care of your new baby before its first day of life. You need to make sure it gets enough food and water so that it doesn’t become dehydrated or die from lack of nourishment. Also, you need to give them all the love and attention they deserve because if not, they won’t survive long after birth.
If you want to see how much these things matter, just think about it.
If you were to lose your job right now, would you really feel safe? Would you even be able to feed yourself? How many days do you have left until your child is born?
These are questions that every parent worries about at one point or another.
So why shouldn’t a puppy too?
In order for puppies to thrive and grow properly, they need lots of stimulation and love. They also need the right nutrients and an environment that is safe for them to live in. All of these things will lead to a happy, healthy dog that you will cherish for years to come.
Puppy Training Stage 2: Day 1 – 3 Month
During these first three months after birth, your dog is going through something called “Instinct Mode”. This means that they have very limited intelligence and the only thing on their mind is their natural instincts. For example, it is during this time that a mother dog would naturally begin weaning her puppies off of her milk supply and teaching them how to hunt and forage for food. Since you’re adopting your dog and providing it’s food, you will have to do this instead.
It will be your job to provide your dog with toys and other entertainment to keep it occupied while you can concentrate on the more important tasks of training.
You may begin training preferably starting on the 8th or 9th day after birth. This is when most pups lose their “limp” and start crawling around the house. You may also see an increase in appetite at this time as well.
