Training a Maltipoo Puppy?
Training a maltipoo puppy is done in the same way you would train any kind of puppy. You start small with a bag full of treats to use as a reward when the puppy executes the behavior you wish to encourage. It is important that you never lose your temper when training your puppy because that will only serve to reinforce negative behavior. You want your puppy to associate his or her training exercises with fun.
You will find that training a maltipoo puppy is easier than you think. It just takes time, patience and repetition. If you wish to teach your puppy to “sit” on command say, “Sit!” and hold the treat above its head. The dog will naturally look up at your hand and will automatically sit when doing so. When it does, give him the treat and say, “Good sit!” and give him a pat on the head.
If you wish to adopt a maltipoo puppy, remember that dog training is all about repetition. Make sure that you practice the set of behaviors you are trying to teach your dog on a daily basis.
Keep your training sessions short at the when you first start. A puppy’s attention span, like a child’s, is short. When your puppy becomes bored with the activity, stop it at once and leave the puppy alone.
If your puppy does something other than what you want it to do, say, “Oops” and give it a correction. So, if you have told it to stay and it gets up, say, “Oops” and push its rear back down to a sitting position and say, “Stay” again. This way it will come to associate the word “Stay” with being in a sitting position and not getting up.
