Victoria Stilwell’s Puppy Training Advice on Martha

Victoria Stillwell, star of Animal Planet’s “It’s Me or the Dog”, was on the Martha Stewart Show to teach us some great tips for how to train our puppy dogs.  Stillwell was also recently featured in Modern Dog Magazine.  She brought such darling puppies on Martha’s show, and all of them are up for adoption.  With spring right around the corner, there will be many puppies around… so please consider adopting one!  Victoria said that the best time to train a dog is between 8 and 16 weeks old.













Victoria Stilwell’s Tips for Potty Training Your Puppy Dog:

Line your entire puppy-proof room with Wee Wee Pads, which have a special scent to them so that your puppy will know that it should pee on it.  Every day, take away one of the Wee Wee Pads to start teaching your puppy to only go on the section of your room with Wee Wee Pads.  Eventually, you will get down to just one Wee Wee Pad and then you can take it outside to your yard to start teaching your dog to go to the bathroom outside only. It should take you 2-3 months to train your dog to to go the bathroom outside, and once your puppy has not had an accident for six weeks, Victoria Stilwell says you should be good to go!

Victoria Stilwell’s Tips for Teaching Your Puppy Dog Not to Chew:

Victoria said that puppies discover the world through their mouths.  If your puppy bites you then put him on the ground and walk away or make a little squealing sound.  Another tip from Stilwell is to get a Kong Dog Toy, which you can place in the freezer to help soothe your dog’s gums. Plus, you can place a tiny bit of peanut butter with a piece of their kibble into the hole on the side of the Kong Dog Toy, so that your dog will chew on the toy instead of your clothing, furniture, etc. It will be the best $8 you have ever spent!

Victoria Stilwell’s Tips for Teaching Your Puppy Dog Not to Cry At Night:

If you teach your puppy from a young age that it will sleep in its crate, it will be so much easier (and I am speaking from experience with two husky dogs).  My dogs actually love their crates now.  If they continue to cry, you can try petting your dog while they are in their crate, just until he quiets down.

    Very interesting – For too long now have I had the urge to begin my own blog. Suppose if I wait around any more I’ll never take action. I’ll make sure to include you in my Blogroll. Many thanks!!

  3. Be sure I´ll be back. Found this great blog by searching for dogs in the yard

  4. These are helpful tips especially for beginners. There are dog owners who have problems with crate training but your tip can be an approach that can be used. Thanks.

    I’ve been recently looking to correct items just about all week but with no success, I will attempt these pointers and inform you about if good

  6. Because of reading your blog, I decided to start my own. I had never been interested in keeping a blog until I saw how fun yours was, then I was inspired!

  7. Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while since I’ve been around or posted but as the 3 year mark approaches I can’t help but get a little nostalgic. It’s been almost 3 years now since my little W was born. I guess I’m using the forum as a way to mark the occasion since there’s really nothing else tangible I can think to do. The open adoption is still going well and W’s adoptive mom blogs about him and their family so I can follow along with their lives without being intrusive. We don’t exchange emails as often as we used to, but I’m ok with that. Honestly, most of the time I completely forget about their existence. Perhaps some will think bad of me for that, but I know he has fantastic parents and is a happy, loved child. I’m glad things have turned out the way they have 🙂

  8. This is an interesting article. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi there, just wanted to know how I may get a hold of the owner of this site? I have my own health site and was interested in featuring your site.

  10. my baby girl just turned one in April and I was reading a previous post about food for a one year old and many responded about pb&j and eggs. When is it safe to introduce those items to my baby for the first time. Also, she’s struggling with trying to get off the bottle so I’m not rushing her. I let her drink from her sippy cup but when she’s sleep she still gets the bottle. Any thoughts on that are appreciated.

    Sorry for being off topic, but I am just starting my website/blog. Why did you choose WordPress over blogger or any other blog program? I am trying to figure out the best way, since I am not a techy.

  12. You can depend me in for a Digg. Thanks for posting this on your web site!

  13. Myrtice – I just sent you an e-mail… I’d be happy to help!
