One of the important steps in training your puppy is to expose him to different experiences in the world. This will help him be confident and calm in every situation and will prevent him from fear biting.
Socializing your puppy is very important, he should be exposed to as many different people, places, noises, and smells as possible. This will make him more confident and calm in every situation and will prevent him from fear biting. He will become more confident of himself and of his place in the world, showing well arched bowlegged bodies or straight tipped tails, a confident head, and a confident stature.
Some breeds if properly socialized and trained, will not only lack fear of the unfamiliar but will also show a welcome attitude to the unknown. This is particularly true for dogs that have been rescued, where the mind has been put through a lot of changes and stresses. It’s important that you give your dog, at this point in his life a quiet and familiar environment, for him to feel safe and settled.
Here are a few guidelines to help you decide if you should take your puppy to your friends or encourage your puppy to go to their school.
If you are going to meet new people it is best to introduce your puppy to new people at home, where his/her at ease. If you want your puppy to meet new people outside of your home, then take your puppy on walks where he/she will meet new people, but still check for common boundaries and rules. Always keep tight control on your puppy at these times.
If you are going to take your puppy to another home to see other people, then it is often better to leave him/her at home until he/she is old enough and has settled in. The puppy may be exposed to many new and strange people at unfamiliar times. If your puppy is at ease at home give the experience a go. Allow the puppy to adapt to new surroundings in his/her own time.
Increase your bond with your puppy by spending special time grooming him. This will help you to develop a strong relationship between you and your puppy. Show him that you are his/her keeper and that you love him/her.
The Border Terrier is a brave and highly intelligent dog. When they find themselves in a situation with a stranger or another dog, they tend to show their aggressiveness rather than back down. They are quick and deadly learners and take to obedience command with few if any problems. For a dog so intelligent, it’s good to keep them busy as much as possible.
The border terrier is a breed of burrowing diggers and loves burrowing into foxholes or holes. Their unusually long nose and keen sense of smell and taste also make them successful at hunting vermin. These dogs have also been known to hunt bears and other big game. Hunting and tracking dogs are what they are famous for.
Remember, energetic and high-spirited, these dogs may not be ideal for young toddlers. Older children are a better choice for this breed. Since they are so intelligent, they require lots of formal training and attention. They are high-energy dogs so they require lots of activity. Playing and exercising with your dog will be an excellent way to burn off their energy. Just be sure you have enough room for them to run and get their exercise and pay attention to them so they do not resort to bad habits. As they were bred to hunt for vermin, they can be confident and aggressive, so supervision is needed around small children.
If you are a runner and/or an outdoors person you may want to have these dogs. They like to run and are tenacious about it. They thrive outdoors in temperate climates as well as in hot and humid climates. If you have a family that enjoys the outdoors, they would be a good choice.
Their coat is very soft and they do not shed unless brushed or disciplined to be outside. Brushing them every other day is not recommended as they have a coat that stripped and needs to breathe. The other alternative to their harsh coat is trimming it short, which would give them more flexibility, and closer to thermal liveable High layer clothes, would be appropriate.
They are fun-loving and energetic dogs and the dynamic energy between them and their owner is something to behold. If you enjoy the outdoors and have a lot of energy, you will find the Border Terrier to be the perfect companion.
