Top 3 Complaints of New Dog Owners - KONAleashes

New to dog ownership? Congratulations 🐾 🐶

It is an extremely exciting time; however, there are challenges ahead!

Here are the top 3 complaints for new dog owners told by KONAleashes:

 

1) Puppy Potty Training

Yes, the most obvious of them all. Having a new dog/puppy can be a lot of work! Puppy potty training is a process. It takes time and determination. Be persistent and proactive when training your puppy to go outside.

 

2) Teaching my dog/puppy from right to wrong

When housebreaking your new puppy it is important to remember:  Reward good behavior, do not punish bad. A puppy is much more likely to react and remember the reward of good behavior rather than the punishment of poor behavior. 

 

3) My new dog isn't "cuddly"

Be a friend to your dog first! Yes that is right. Through all the training, remember a new puppy or dog is first your best friend. Show them how to love, and love will be reciprocated! An owner must show their new pup it is okay to be "cuddly".
