Patience and Consistency: Key
Factors to Training Min Pins
Miniature Pinschers or more affectionately called Min Pins are in
actuality very sweet dogs. They possess abundant energy and are
known as fearless protectors of their human companions and
domiciles. These dogs are fiercely loyal, extremely curious and yes,
sometimes quite stubborn. In fact, dog enthusiasts claim that Mini
Pinschers are not suitable pets for everyone. Training Min Pins
entails two key factors: patience and consistency.
Before training your Min Pins, you have to know some very basic
things about this breed. First of all, Mini Pinschers often act like
puppies for most of their life. They like to frolic and their energy
levels are almost never depleted. They also like wide open spaces
and can stay outdoors for long periods of time. Because this breed
of dog can become a handful, pet owners often fail to give their
pets proper training or instructions. The Mini Pinscher eventually
suffers from the "Little Napoleon" syndrome (spoiled or
unmanageable,) suffer form obesity and / or both.
Training Min Pins can be tough, and it is said that you as pet
owners, must find extra reserves of patience in case you decide to
train your dogs by yourselves. Because of their puppy-like
attitudes, the Min Pin can become extremely difficult during
training. However, holding firm to your resolve may be just the
thing to help your pets overcome this seeming "behavioral problems."
One essential element in training your Min Pin is safety. You need
to puppy-proof your home. Because this breed of dog is extremely
curious, every part of your house will be subjected to your pet's
inquisitive nature. Also, try to remove possible choking hazards
like bottle caps, thumb tacks or even nails. Training a Min Pin is
advisable when the puppies are still relatively young. Older dogs
will definitely be more difficult to handle, and because older dogs
are more strong willed, you may spend many days of exhaustive and
exasperating training with little progress.
Gentle but firm: in training Min Pins, one must learn the value of
patience and consistency. Min Pins do not relate well at all to any
form of abuse or neglect. In fact, they get more destructive or even
harmful when subjected to cruelty and depravity. By the way, should
you decide to train your dogs personally, you may want to visit one
or two dog training center first or seek the aid of a professional
dog trainer. Min Pins can be too much to handle without proper
guidance, so be forewarned.
Some people who are well versed with training Min Pins often claim
that the Min Pins will often mis-perform just for amusement sake. So
unless you have a great deal of humor and can see how ludicrous the
situation is, you might as well find a different breed to train.
However, in case you begin your training, make sure that your pet
knows that you will be the boss -- and not the other way around.
Make sure though that training isn't painful or distressing to your
pet. Otherwise, the next time around, you will only have a harder
time training your Min Pins.
