We all want well behaved and well-socialized pups, but how do we get that? Well amongst other things, consistency.
Dogs, kind of like us, crave consistency. They like to get up at the same time in the morning. They like to get a treat after they pee outside, and they like to get lots of praise from you.
But life gets in the way and it might be hard for us to stay consistent with our pup’s routine. There are some mornings we sleep late, there are times we forget to purchase those special treats they love, and we may be inconsistent about which kid’s bed they sleep in on any given night. It happens in our homes too! However, it’s important to realize that consistency will make a relaxed less anxious, and healthy pup. Do a little mental check with your routines relating to your pup, and if you live with lots of two-legged peeps, you need to check to be sure they are consistent too. Keeping with routines like mealtimes, leash walks, potty breaks, daycare/socialization, and even dog training classes will help with this. That’s why were here, and always let us know if we can help.
