Question: What are some good habits to train puppies?

Answer: When playing with the puppy, handle his paws and groom him with a brush every day so he'll be used to being handled. Socialization and early training are an important part of pet ownership for the entire family. Make it a family event by having everyone participate in puppy training classes, including the young ones in the family—you'll be surprised what you may learn. It's just as important for puppies to be socialized with other dogs and pets as well and not just their human parents. Encourage everyone to go to a nearby dog park where you and your pet can socialize with other pets and their “;parents.”; Enjoy one another and have fun.
