Everyone loves a puppy. How could you not? They're sweet, adorable and affectionate little bundles of energy. Training your puppy early can help the dog lead a happy and healthy life. Teaching young puppies some basics like sitting and attention will help in the long run when they are bigger. The more positive experiences they have when they are younger, the more easily they will embrace new things when they mature.
