4 Puppy Behaviors to Nip in the Early Stages

Like any other puppy, a Klee Kai needs proper training and socialization to grow into well-behaved adult dogs.

Not Establishing Ground Rules from the Start

One of the most common mistakes new puppy owners make is not establishing ground rules and boundaries from the very beginning. It's essential to follow your commands and expectations from day one, or your puppy will quickly become confused and unruly. Not only will this make life difficult for you in the future, but it can also put your puppy in danger if they learn that they can get away with certain bad behaviors.

Not Getting Enough Exercise

Another common mistake is not giving your puppy enough exercise. A tired puppy is a good puppy, and it's important to burn off all that excess energy, so they don't become destructive around the house. Take them on long walks, runs, or hikes, and provide plenty of toys and chew bones to keep them occupied when you can't be there to play with them.

Ignoring Bad Behavior

It's important to nip bad behavior in the bud as soon as you see it happening. If you ignore it or let it slide, your puppy will think it's acceptable and continue doing it. This includes chewing furniture, jumping up on people, or barking excessively. If you catch your puppy in the act, quickly say "no" or "leave it" in a firm voice and provide them with an alternative activity to do instead.

Not Socializing Enough

Socialization is key for all puppies, but it's especially important for Klee Kai pups. Since they're bred as companion dogs, they need to be around people as much as possible to learn how to interact properly with humans and other animals. So attend puppy socialization classes, take them to the park, and have friends and family over often so your puppy can get used to being around different types of people and animals.
