Puppy testing

The most complete information regarding the personality characteristics of puppies can be obtained as a result of special tests. Babies aged 6 to 8 weeks can be objectively checked for fear of loud sounds, pain threshold, nervousness, dominance, the presence or absence of hunting and protective instincts.

For testing puppies, dog breeders recommend using the Campbell comprehensive test, which allows you to fairly accurately identify the characteristics of the dog’s psyche even at such a young age and give advice on the suitability of the animal for certain activities.

Puppy Tips

When deciding to buy a thoroughbred dog, you need to consider how your relatives and neighbors will relate to it. Of course, if we are talking about a private house with a large fence, then those living nearby are unlikely to be against such a purchase. But if we are talking about housing conditions, then the whining of a young puppy or barking of an already adult dog can adversely affect relations with neighbors. Also, keeping a dog requires considerable financial costs: visiting a veterinary clinic, feeding the animal and caring for it. Having a dog just for the entertainment of children or on a whim is not worth it. Therefore, it is recommended to buy a puppy only with a strong desire, readiness and the possibility of its maintenance in the necessary conditions, the availability of free time for training and care.

You should not buy a dog with it on the street or in the market – this way you can buy not only a non-purebred dog, it can also turn out to be sick. Of course, it is better to choose with a specialist, but if he is not there, you must try to do it yourself by contacting a nursery or bona fide breeders. Continue reading

Training practice

In practice, the following training methods are used:

mechanical: a conditioned stimulus is reinforced by mechanical action. The team is combined with stroking, pressing with a hand on the sacrum, etc.
tasteful: team and reward (delicacy);
contrast: a combination of a conditioned stimulus with a mechanical and then food stimulus;
mimetic: based on the innate ability of animals to mimic the actions of another animal.
In the process of training, animals develop automatism in actions, but new skills, unlike inborn ones, are not so resistant and require constant training.
The entire process of dog training can conditionally be divided into three stages: Continue reading
