You Love Dogs? I Do
I have a 38 day old rottweiler puppy. Just searching for suggestions on anything, from chewing to potty training. Thanks!

I just wrote an article about a particular training exercise I like to do with my puppies. Check it out: http://guidinggolden.wordpress.com/2009/10/30/golden-retriever-version-2-0/
A puppy learns a lot while they are still with their siblings. By having a 5 week old puppy you will have a dog that hasn’t learned several things that you can not teach. That is why most reliable breeders wont let their pups go until they are 8-14 weeks old. You can begin to teach many things at 5 weeks, but use positive reinforcement and no negative. Most dogs don’t have full bladder control until they are 6 months so don’t punish!!! When he does good, praise him! When he does bad, ignore him or give him a firm “no”. Never let him see you clean up his messes.
he just wants to please you, but being so young he is going to mess up a lot. Socialize him now so he will be good around strangers.
Just curious ok why have you got a 5 week old puppy?
They should not be away from there mom and brothers and sisters yet!
Congrats on your puppy! I’ll include a site that has some awesome free potty training tips!
It’s illegal to release a pup to it’s new home before it’s at least 8 weeks old. What irresponsible backyard greeder sold you such a young dog?
