ImageSo you want a dog in your life? Well, then, you should adopt a puppy. There are several reasons for this and the main one is that an older dog may have some nasty habits that would be very difficult to break. With a puppy you can train him exactly the way you want.

Adopt a puppy, and you will find many hours of entertainment, and frustration at times, but the good will outweigh the bad. Training will take care of all the little unwanted habits. Praise and rewards of good dog treats will take care of a lot of things, and make your puppy want to do things that will please you instead of going out of its way to be annoying. Remember, when training your puppy, timing is everything. When your puppy does something you like, react immediately with a reward of some wonderful treats available. Make sure that the treats are soft and small so your puppy can gulp it down, and immediately look for more.
