The most frequent myths about puppies

Post autor: eztalks » 3 kwie 2018, o 09:04

In general, there are many myths about dogs that we have talked about on other occasions, but incredibly these false beliefs are not only limited to adult dogs, but also affect the little ones: the puppies.

So that they do not tell you Chinese stories and make informed decisions, we leave you with a list of some of the most frequent myths that are said about puppies.

A puppy is easier to train than an adult.

Not necessarily. This depends on the personality of the dog, as well as the patience and perseverance that the owner puts in training, but not age. There are dogs that tend to please their owners by nature and there are also more skilled owners as trainers.

If I have a puppy of a certain breed I know how it will be as an adult.

While it is true that dogs of breed have certain predispositions to some behavior (for example, beagles tend to sniff everything or farmers tend to love water), this does not mean that having a puppy of a certain breed will guarantee their behavior as an adult There are people who have dogs of the same race all their lives and they assure that, although they may come to share certain characteristics, each one will have its own personality.

Dogs and children will only get along if they grow together.

Not necessarily. There are dogs that adore children and others that do not. There are dogs that love children very much, but prefer to be cuddled with them while others want to play with them. And there are others who get very nervous in the presence of children and babies, or simply do not enjoy the experience at all. We must also take into account that it is FUNDAMENTAL to teach children to treat dogs with love, respect, affection and softness.

Dogs and cats will only get along if they grow together.

As in the previous point, everything depends on the personalities of both the dog and the cat. It helps a lot that you make a proper presentation so that both of you start your relationship with the right foot.

It is easier for an adult dog to accept a puppy than for another adult dog.

In general adult dogs tend to be careful with puppies, but equally everything depends on the personality of each. There are adult dogs that no longer tolerate the energy and antics of puppies and, on the other hand, there are adult dogs that when they meet another adult dog are great from the start.

Puppies only learn to go to the bathroom if you give them "periodicazos" or rubbing their nose in the urine / poop.

No no no. What your puppy will learn if you do that is to have panic and, most likely, is to continue to pee and poop everywhere, even fear. Better follow these steps to teach him to go to the bathroom instead.

Puppies only learn with a "hard hand".

No, no, no and no more. For many years it was believed that the use of physical scolding and punishment to "educate" dogs was the only way to achieve it (and there are still many who believe it). According to several studies, dogs that are beaten or punished as a form of discipline, not only fail to understand the message that their owner wants to send them in most cases, but learn to be afraid of their owner (instead of respect, which is not the same), besides that it is very common for them to exhibit aggressive behavior.

Bad behaviors will be removed when they grow up.

Not at all. On the contrary, a puppy that is not properly educated will be a dog with bad behaviors (which will even get worse over time), so be careful and better apply with your training since childhood, though, always using the positive reinforcement technique.

Puppies can learn things until they are 6 months old.

Not at all. This myth spread because there are many training schools that do not accept dogs until they are 6 months old so they have already completed all their vaccination rounds, but this does not mean you can not teach them basic things like sitting, lying down and being still. from the first day he comes home.

A dog has to be an adult to be able to sterilize it.

Total lie. In fact, there is much evidence that it is better to sterilize dogs around 6 months ( you can learn more about this topic here ).
