Tips For Training a Corgi Puppy

 Submitted by Nic on May 30, 2012

Corgi dogs make loyal and devoted pets. They are family dogs and do not do well if left alone. Left to themselves they will become bored and eventually destructive.

They get along best with older and more considerate children in the house and can be very suspicious of strangers. This makes them excellent guard dogs, fearlessly protecting their territory, family and property. They also tend to get along well with other pets they have been raised with.

Training a corgi puppy can be a fun filled exercise and should be approached in the right spirit. Here are some corgi puppy training tips:

• Be patient with your puppy and never lose your temper. Avoid training your puppy if you are angry or frustrated.

• While praising your puppy make sure you do so in a soft voice.

• The location is also important. Trying to train your puppy to sit at a crowded and noisy sidewalk will probably end up in frustration for both you and your puppy. Training is more likely to be effective if conducted at a quieter location instead so that there are no distractions.

• Timing too is very important. If you catch your puppy doing something he isn’t supposed to do, correct him while he is in the act of doing so. Scolding him ten minutes after the incident will just end up confusing him and he will not know what he has done wrong.

• Do not have long training sessions. Space them out by having two or three short sessions in a day.

• Be consistent while training your corgi puppies. This means that you should deal with incidents in a consistent manner so as not to confuse your puppy. For example, if you scold him for begging at the table the first time, do not feed him the next time he begs. This will only confuse your puppy and he will not realize what he is doing wrong.

• While house training your corgi puppy it is important to take him to the designated potty zone at the right time. This should be done first thing in the morning, before going to bed and after every meal.

Consistency is very important. If you catch him in the act of messing in the house, interrupt him by making a loud noise like a clapping sound and scold him. Pick him up and take him to the designated zone.

Remember, consistency is the key. Persevere, and your efforts will eventually pay off.
