One of the most important things to teach them is where they should use the bathroom. They can't use the toilet like us, because they don't know how. We also don't want them using it all over our house. So we need to start off by walking them on a leash outside, to help them figure it out.
2. Don't Reward Too Consistently
When we are training them, we love it when they do the right thing, especially in front of other people. However, we can't give them a treat every time they do something right, or they'll begin to think, "Hey, if I do this, I'm owed a treat." Petting and saying "Good boy/girl is fine in most cases, because they realize they did a good thing and are being praised. But feeding them every time is unhealthy.
3. Basic Commands
The main thing we need to teach these four-legged babies is how to follow basic commands such as "sit", "stay", "come." They also need to learn "No" and "Leave it,", for when they try to get into something they shouldn't. For example, the garbage.
Once they have learned the basics above, then it will be safe to teach them more entertaining tricks. First though, we need to earn their trust by giving them ours and training them how to be a part of our families.
