A pomsky is quite arguably one of the cutest dogs ever. They’re adorable from head to tail. They can be strong willed and receptive to learning but of course, like any breed, they need the proper training. These pups can’t and won’t figure out what you want done on their own. They need to be shown. It’s going to take time and a lot of patience. Dogs are like children except they can’t talk. If you’re lucky you won’t end up with the grunt of the pack and your little one will be smart.
There are a few ways to train your pomsky. Some of these ways work better for some, owners and pets, while other ways just flat out don’t do anything for you. The first training exercise is crate training. Crate training is by far one of the easiest and best ways to get your puppy trained. You need to make sure that it’s in a safe part of the house to begin with. Your pomsky should be kept in the crate during both mealtimes and sleep times.
If your puppy becomes restless and starts to whine you’ll want to use certain words to show them that it’s okay and to calm down. Also use words to get them into the kennel. Like dinner time, bedtime or go in there. When they obey you make sure that you reward them. By about 6 months old they’ll be good to go.
If your puppy happens to bite there are ways to combat that. All puppies need play time. This is where the biting, and not always on purpose, stems from. It’s good to let your puppy go to the park and play and socialize with other dogs. They can get their energy and play time out there and it’s a good place to show that there are limits to what he or she can bite. They can learn that there are times when they bite too hard and then they can figure out what not to do in certain situations.
Whining, howling or barking can be quite common in little dogs. It’s also extremely annoying. If they begin to whine or howl the first step is to place them in their cage. With no reward or treat for a short period of time. If they continue don’t go to them. This will show them that if they keep up the behavior you aren’t going to come. If they continue for hours on end it can be a sign that they aren’t completely ready to be on their own just quite yet. Give them a little bit more love and TLC. Eventually they’ll come around and understand what they can and can’t do. It takes time as does any sort of training with any pet. Persistence and patience are the two biggest emotions you can keep at your side.
