Getting Started Week 28 - Stress Tolerance
big deal! That's what we want your puppy to think when he or she is
experiencing a little stress. In other words, if your puppy is
experiencing a little stress and can simply cope, then you will see
fewer stress-related canine behaviors. problems.
The way to increase stress tolerance is by teaching your puppy that it
pays off. Your puppy needs to learn from you that praise and
rewards result from tolerating short periods of stress whether it's
during "gentling" or "close tethering" or "kennel confinement" or teeth
brushing, bathing, waiting quietly to be let indoors or outdoors, or being
on a "down-stay", etc. Start with baby steps to help your
puppy develop this frustration tolerance.
If your puppy tolerates a little stress, you are more likely to take
your puppy places with you. The more time you spend together, the more
teachable moments you will have and this enjoyable companionship is good for both of you!
