The new owner of the dog is finally prepared to bring their much-anticipated new member of the family home after devoting a significant amount of time to reading paperwork, signing contracts, and asking questions. Tibetan Terrier puppies are filled with joy, anticipation, and a little bit of fear as they make their way to their vehicle while holding a cheerful, healthy, and vivacious puppy that is between 10 and 12 weeks old.
So what do we do now?
In this essay, we will refer to the infant as having the male gender since there are many new things for him to get used to in his new environment. There are new people to meet, new scents to take in, new locations to investigate, and new foods to gnaw on.
The house has to be made “puppy-proof” so that he may live there safely, as well as for the protection of your new leather boots, flooring, furniture, and everything else that might be damaged.
Crate training is something that your breeder has advised, and it is quite likely that they have already started acclimating this puppy to the crate. A crate is an invaluable tool for housebreaking a puppy, and it also provides the puppy with a very safe space to play in while you are unable to keep an eye on what he is doing. The crate not only provides him with a secure location for him to be in while you are driving, but it also helps him become used to the idea of having a “home away from home” when you take him on trips to see family or on vacation. In addition to this, it is required for participation in dog shows, which is the case regardless of whether you compete in obedience, conformation, agility, fly ball, or any of the other popular dog sports.
No matter what your intentions are for your puppy’s future, it is imperative that he learns basic obedience as soon as you bring him home for his own protection. These lessons should start as soon as you bring him home. There are a lot of great books on basic obedience, and there are also a lot of places in your region that provide starting puppy lessons or basic obedience training.
You and your breeder will need to have a conversation and come to an agreement on when you will begin to really visit an organized facility in order to engage in these classes. Before being exposed to other dogs in a group situation, it is imperative that the vaccination schedule for the puppy be completed.
Your puppy will need to comprehend and comply with a set of fundamental commands in order to participate in any of the activities that you have planned for him in the future. Your new puppy’s first and greatest priority should be to learn how to come when called. The single most critical thing you can teach your new dog is this one right here. He needs to be instructed on how to pay attention when walking while tethered. When asked, he needs to be able to sit, stand, and lay down properly. And it is necessary for him to learn how to “Stay” or “Wait.”
Obedience, agility, herding, and conformation competitions, as well as a simple walk around the neighborhood, all use some elements of the activities described above.
Tibetan Terriers are eager to learn, clever dogs who are happy to participate in most activities, and they have a strong desire to please their owners. Because of the importance of using motivational training techniques with this breed, you should do research on any potential training facilities well in advance of joining up with any of them.
It is highly recommended that you attend at least one training session so that you can see how the instructor works with the dog owners and their canine companions. You and your dog will get a good notion from this as to whether or not this is the right spot for you both.
There are a few things that you will want to start with right from the outset if you are a conformation aficionado.
Let’s begin with the act of grooming. Your dog has to learn to look forward to these sessions, and in order for that to happen, you need to make them fun for your dog and keep them to a minimum amount of time. Bring your brush, a handful of snacks, and a voice that is upbeat yet commanding to the grooming table with you.
If it turns out that the puppy has not yet been used to having his fur brushed when you obtain him, use a delicate touch and a fluffy brush to get him used to the sensation. These sessions will be fun for him as long as he receives a lot of praise and is rewarded with rewards. You may teach the puppy to lie on his side by grabbing the front and rear leg on the opposite side of his body and putting the weight of your body on his. Then, gently lay him on his side and keep him in place while you praise him. This will help the puppy learn how to sleep on his side. Soon enough, he will master the skill and be able to perform it without any difficulty. This will make your grooming procedures far less labor-intensive, and it will also make his life more enjoyable.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to getting a new puppy ready for the show ring, since many breeders have their own unique methods. The ‘Watch me’ command is where we always begin when we do anything at Colledge. This is the single most crucial command for the show dog, even more so than learning to trot while being walked on a leash without breaking stride. First, we grab the puppy’s attention by calling out “Watch me,” and then we instantly reward it with some praise and a goodie. Some users only treat, while others use the click-and-treat feature. It is up to you, your breeder, and maybe even the teacher of your handling class to decide how you will train the puppy. But regardless of the approach you use, the puppy has to learn to stay still and focus entirely on you. When being evaluated by a judge on the ground or on the table, the puppy will be able to maintain its position thanks to this device.
At the age of nine weeks, the puppy is learning to stand and stack.

Training at the table is required since this breed is a tabled variety. Again, these are fundamental training exercises that should be started the moment you bring your new dog home. Treats while the dog is being groomed on the table, brief sessions treat when the dog is standing still on the table with the command “Watch me!” and short sessions…all of these things show the way to a happy, willing-to-please, and confident puppy.
Exposure to the show scene may be greatly gained by participation in handling lessons.
The puppy is trained to react to his owner or handler in a setting that is far more distracting and exciting. Clapping, slamming crates, other enthusiastic competitors, and rubber floor mats are all helpful in acclimating the puppy to the environment that he will find himself in during the actual competition. You will learn how to best show off your dog’s excellent characteristics, while also learning how to make his weaknesses less visible. The teacher will have his hands on your puppy, acclimating him to what is expected of him when the judge examines him.
Make sure that your puppy has a good time and is excited about everything that is going on here. This is the single most crucial piece of advice that you can follow during all of this. You want him to be excited about these occasions, ready to be with you, and willing to satisfy your needs in any way he can. This is true for whatever activity that you and your puppy choose to take part in.
A joyful team is more likely to achieve its goals.
