As soon as you get your puppy or dog, you should make sure that it knows his or her place. Letting them roam wherever they want in the house is one bad habit you need to nip at the bud. To begin with choose a confined area where you are comfortable to have your dog roam as it pleases and put there the bedding, toys and bowls where it can drink and eat from. Make sure that the eating and drinking bowls are not always filled up as dogs will eat and drink all the time if you let them. That would mean them needing to go to the toilet quite often than you would like them to. At the same time ensure that they get plenty of exercise as well as making sure that your dog becomes properly potty trained. The dog training videos suggested give clear advice on how to do this.
