Dog walking

As your puppy’s guardian, it’s your job to interact with, socialize, and train her to help prevent abnormal play aggression. You can accomplish this in a number of ways.

  • Provide lots of exercise opportunities. Healthy puppies are loaded with energy, and it’s important to provide them with productive ways to expend it. Make sure your pet is getting plenty of walks and adequate playtime each day. In fact, aerobic exercise is a great way to distract your rambunctious, mouthy puppy, so consider going for a fast-paced walk. My motto is “a tired puppy is a good puppy.” There will be less desire to engage in antagonist behaviors when your pup is too tired to stay awake.
  • Provide mental stimulation. Treat release and puzzle toys will challenge your pup as she figures out the best way to get those treats into her mouth.
  • Playtime. Spend time each day playing games with your puppy (fetch, hide-and-seek indoors, etc.) to help her burn energy and enhance the bond you share with her.
  • Teach obedience commands. Make sure your puppy understands and responds to basic commands such as Come, Sit, Stay, Lie Down, etc. Make sure to use the commands often so your pup develops a habit of responding appropriately.
