When you get a puppy, you will probably want to begin training as soon as possible. Even young puppies can be easily trained. One of the first steps toward training your puppy will be determining what their driving force is. Most dogs will fall into one of two categories. They will either be more receptive to praise that comes in the form of treats (food-driven) or they will be more receptive to praise that comes in the form of love (attention-driven).
