Who is the pack leader here?
Dogs are pack animals. They are used to having a pack leader. train rat terrier for your puppy, you should be. If you make rules from the beginning, your puppy will feel safe and build a close relationship with you. He must learn that you and your family are above him in the hierarchy. Here are a few simple rules to follow as a “pack leader”:
In the wilderness, the pack leader always eats first. Your puppy will accept this, but you need to teach him first. His meals should always take place independently of yours. If you feed him from the table while eating, he will think he is the boss. Then it becomes difficult to get rid of these airs and teach him not to always disturb you while eating. To reeducate once learned misconduct is very difficult. This can also be very annoying if you have friends visiting.
The pack leader always has the best place to sleep. That’s why your puppy needs to learn that your bed is taboo for him. Once you let him into your bed, you can hardly wean him off. He will become very possessive and think that the bed is now also his area.
No continuous attention
You are the pack leader and your puppy must accept that you need time for yourself. As long as he doesn’t understand this, he assumes that you want him around you anytime and anywhere – even in places where you’d rather be on your own. In order to get him used to staying calm in such situations in time, do not pay any attention to him every now and then for 20 to 30 minutes. This may sound strict, but he will quickly get used to the fact that you are not available to him around the clock.
