Mistake 1: Skipping Basic Training Steps

The first mistake that dog owners often make when training their Presa Canario puppies is skipping basic training steps. Basic training is essential for establishing leadership and setting clear boundaries for your puppy. Without it, your puppy may become disobedient and difficult to manage.

Here are some of the basic training steps that you should not skip:

  1. Establishing Leadership: Dogs are pack animals and need a leader to follow. As a dog owner, it is your responsibility to establish yourself as the leader of the pack. This means being confident, consistent, and firm in your commands and actions.

  2. Teaching Basic Commands: Basic commands like sit, stay, come, and heel are important for your puppy to learn. These commands will help you to control your puppy's behavior and keep them safe in different situations.

  3. Socializing Your Puppy: Socialization is crucial for your puppy to learn how to interact with other dogs and people. It is important to expose your puppy to different environments, sounds, smells, and people while they are still young.

Mistake 2: Using Harsh Training Techniques

The second mistake that dog owners often make when training their Presa Canario puppies is using harsh training techniques. These techniques may include physical punishment, yelling, screaming, or using shock collars. Such techniques can damage your puppy's trust in you and result in aggressive or fearful behavior.

Here are some of the negative consequences of using harsh training techniques:

  • Physical Punishment: Physical punishment can lead to fear and anxiety in your puppy, making them more aggressive or fearful in the long run.

  • Yelling or Screaming: Yelling or screaming can create a negative association with training and can also damage your relationship with your puppy.

  • Using Shock Collars: Shock collars can be painful and harmful to your puppy's health. They can also create a negative association with training and cause your puppy to become fearful or aggressive.

Mistake 3: Not Being Consistent

The third mistake that dog owners often make when training their Presa Canario puppies is not being consistent. Consistency is key when it comes to training your puppy. Without it, your puppy may become confused and unsure of what is expected of them.

Here are some of the common ways that dog owners may not be consistent:

  1. Skipping Training Sessions: Skipping training sessions can disrupt your puppy's routine and make it difficult for them to learn new commands or behaviors.

  2. Changing Rules and Commands: Changing rules and commands can confuse your puppy and make it difficult for them to understand what is expected of them.

  3. Not Following Through with Consequences: Not following through with consequences can send mixed signals to your puppy and make it difficult for them to learn from their mistakes.

By avoiding these three mistakes, you can ensure that your Presa Canario puppy grows up to be a well-behaved and obedient canine companion that you can be proud of. Remember to be patient, consistent, and positive in your training approach, and your puppy will reward you with love, loyalty, and obedience.
