1. Start with basic obedience training. Make sure that your dog knows how to sit, stay and come on command before moving on to more advanced training.
2. Consider enrolling them in a puppy training class at the local pet store or vet clinic so that they can learn how to interact with other dogs, people and other pets in an environment where everyone is focused on learning how to interact with each other rather than being distracted by their surroundings like they might be outside in public places like parks or sidewalks where there are lots of distractions for them such as squirrels running around nearby trees or birds flying overhead which could cause them to lose focus on what it is that we’re trying teach them during our training sessions together!
