- Give it a name. Always call your dog by its name and try not to keep changing the name, because it will just confuse the dog.
- Buy it food. Try lots of different foods until you find its favorite. Give it snacks when it's good or does a trick.
- Give it some freedom. But never too much. Until you build full trust with your dog only let it out for a walk everyday and maybe a little peek though the garden.
- Start playing games with it. After about a month your dog should start to trust you. Play football, catch, races and other fun things.
- Give it plenty of attention. Keep a bit of time everyday to play with your dog.
- Feed it everyday. Give it its favorite food mixed with your dinner scraps and water. If your dog doesn't like this try making diffrent combinations.
- Get it a friend. Once you and your dogs are nearly soul mates you might want to take getting another dog into consideration. If you cannot handle it, take it out for more walks so it can meet other dogs.
- Make it a bed. There are dog pillows and baskets in pet shops that you can buy for it.
- The more walks you give it, the more trust you get.
- Don't hit a dog. A simple way to say no is Uh-uh.
- Never give it too much freedom at first because it might run away.
- Never abuse the dog. They have feelings too.
- Don't let the dog get away with everything. Make sure it follows your rules.
