8. Consider using a professional trainer
If you do not have time to train your puppy, bring in the help of a professional. Being able to control your dog on walks or when strangers enter the house is essential for the safety of you and your dog. Most trainers will come to your home and work with you to devise a training program for your dog. Another option is to send the puppy away to obedience school, but this can be expensive and you will not see your puppy for several weeks.
