Australian Labradoodles, which are a cross between the Labrador Retriever, Poodle, curly coat Retriever, English and American Cocker and Irish Water Spaniel in their foundation, and are great first pets. They are friendly, energetic, and great with young kids. Some of them even love to swim! Australian Labradoodles are great for families with young kids or for owners who might have allergy concerns.
When you are introducing a new Australian Labradoodle into your life, there are many things to consider, including training.
These puppy training tips can help smooth the transition, and will help you teach your puppy the rules of the house.
First of all, remember that your puppy is young! He or she doesn’t know right from wrong. Try to refrain from raising your voice when your puppy misbehaves, and don’t hit your puppy—they don’t understand what that means because their moms only growl in response to misbehavior. Instead, reward good behavior with healthy treats and extra excitement.
If you have kids, make sure that the kids know not to sneak up on the puppy, or grab them from behind. Your puppy’s first reaction will be to protect themselves; which might mean biting and growling.
Don’t forget to puppy-proof! Make sure there are no dangerous items that your puppy could get a hold of, or things that you wouldn’t want to get ruined. This includes carpets, rugs, shoes, anything sharp, and any kind of food that would be harmful to your pup.
Stick to these tips, and the puppy training process will be easy and painless! Your pup will be a well-behaved part of your family in no time. For more information about Australian Labradoodles or to find a way to own your own, contact Copper Canyon Labradoodles today!
