Puppies are renowned for their infinite sources of energy. I sometimes compare them with batteries, and not the cheap kind, the ones that go on and on and on! Finding their off switch is not an option as they appear to be stuck in Play mode. The only way to deal with so much energy is to train them to start responding to simple commands, such as “Sit” or “Stay” and hope that these work to stop them running all over the house. Even at this young age puppies have to learn their place in the household. They have to understand that only the owner can decide when they can eat, when they can go out, jump on the bed, stop barking or growling, play and many other everyday chores and actions.
Dog training schools are a great way of allowing puppies to socialize with other dogs and to put their energy to good use. When it is time for the puppy to start learning the basics of obedience you will find that it will be easier to control them. The power of rewarding your puppy cannot be underestimated as treats are a puppy’s best friend (after you!)>
