This behavior can ruin your morning walk. Moreover, you can’t go with your pet anywhere. Because it will seem awkward, especially in a public place where your dog is constantly pulling your hand and you are struggling to handle it. 

Now, without proper training, aggression control (toward another dog), toileting in a specific place is a long way off. 

No matter what breed of dog you choose as your pet, if you want to make your dog a good family dog, you will need to provied essential training for new dog. 

In this article, I will introduce the basic and essential training for your dog to make it a perfect family dog.

Why Socialize training is important


Socialization is a process for your pet to feel comfortable around new dogs, people, public places, and various types of animals. 

Socialized dogs are less likely to develop territorial and aggressive behavior, Socialization also helps to make a confident, friendly, and calm dog.

The first three months are the best time for your Puppy’s socialization. Because during this period, they are very curious and don’t have any previous bad experiences with other humans and dogs. 

Many people think that socializing an adult dog is difficult. But the truth is obviously, you can socialize your adult dog. You just have to try a little bit harder to socialize your adult dog than a small puppy.

I am giving you some key clues that your dog needs socialization.

  • Aggressive toward other dogs or people.
  • When you take it out for a walk or any other reason, it becomes extremely exciting.
  • They feel uncomfortable and nervous around other people and dogs. 


The most important training for your dog is toilet training


Unless you plan to keep your dog outdoors (we strongly advise keeping your pet indoors.), the most important training for your dog is potty(toilet) training. 

Even if you think about it, you have to clean your dog’s mess (facies-urine) several times a day, hundred times a week, multiple thousand times in a year, you will become fatigued and nausea. 

Additionally, you won’t be able to visit a public place or a relative’s house comfortably since in the back of your mind you will be concerned about a potential accident.

In fact, the most common reason for a dog to lose its home and become a stray dog is to make the house dirty by urination and feces anywhere. 

This fault’s liability goes to the owner. Because they don’t give proper potty training to their dog. 

So in general, you can feel that toilet training is the most important essential training for new dogs.

Besides, there are many benefits of potty training for you and your dog.

  2. Toilet training Reduce your stress, because you don’t have to clean your pet’s feces and urine numerous times a day.
  3. You don’t have to worry about a potential accident in public or in your relative’s house.
  4. Practice of toilet training for your dog is not only beneficial to the health of your family but also ensures a healthier environment for your dog.
