Training a Teddy Bear Puppy

A Little Goes A Long Way With These Dog Training Tips

Training teddy bear puppies to be obedient isn’t rocket science; the commands are simple – sit, heel, stay – and the ever so popular 'no barking!’ All you need is a little guidance to get it right and keep the frustration to a minimum.

Each and every tip and trick is of equal importance if you want a dog that is not only obedient for the most part of its life, but also strengthens the bond between dog and owner. All teddy bear puppy breeds will benefit from these top training tips.


Teaching your teddy bear puppy that you are the boss!

Teddy Bear Puppy Training Tip 1:

You need to show your dog who’s boss and for that you need to win over its mind. Unless your dog knows that you are its master, it will go about doing its own thing and not look to you before behaving a certain way. Achieving this above everything else is the key to lifelong obedience. To learn how to drill into your dog’s mind that it must do as you say, check out the '5 Golden Rules’ to establish the master-dog relationship. Don’t get your hopes up on succeeding by letting tip number one slide by. For those who neglect to follow this golden rule you’ll find your dog disobeying you at the most awkward and critical times. You might find other ways to train your dog but on any given day, it is bound to do as it pleases because it thinks it can. Wining over your dog’s mind is a surefire way to 100% obedience. All good teddy bear breeders know this to be the secret to successfully training teddy bear puppies.

Teddy Bear Puppy Training Tip 2:

You have to pay close attention to what your dog likes. How else are you going to motivate and reward it for being a “good boy/girl”, if you don’t know what makes it happy? This means you need to learn what its favorite treats and activities are. The key here is to encourage more bonding time and make it fun for both of you so that when the training session comes along, there is no frustration or dread for either of you.

Like humans, dogs have their individual likes and dislikes; while some prefer running to retrieve a ball outdoors, your dog could be part of the lot that loves to fetch frisbees out of the swimming pool or sea. So, try out a few activities to figure out what it likes the most and stick to those when training. An equally important aspect of training is rewards; make sure you use its favorite one as a reward for good behavior.

Training teddy bear puppy to fetch

Here are the 3 most important rewards in dog training that every dog owner must remember:

  • Food – rewarding your dog with any type of food is guaranteed to teach it to be on its best behavior.
  • Love and affection – dogs demand a lot of affection in general, but giving them the right kind of love and affection when training is very important. Hugging, petting and speaking in happy tones are all good ways of conveying affection when it has done something good.
  • Activities and toys – If it’s fetch your dog likes, take it out and throw a stick or chew toy around as a reward. Whatever games or toys it likes, play with it to reward good behavior.

Remember, you have to be fair and treat your dog with respect so that it wants to work harder when training.

It is also important to remember these tips when using food as rewards:

  • Use different types of food
  • Avoid using food on each occasion
  • Hide the reward when calling out commands; if it does not obey, do not reward it.

Teddy Bear Puppy Training Tip 3:

Don’t give up! Your dog will never be able to perfect its skills and obey commands unless it has enough practice. In order to achieve such perfection, rewards are the motivational key to your dog’s best-behaved days.

Love teacups…I am a first time owner. Thinking mix of maltese and shitzu…but not sure what to look for to make sure it is in good health. A breeder contacted me and had what I am looking for…but she said it was the runt…and will be tiny.

Your website impressed me…please contact me. How much too…curious on price.
