If you want to learn highly effective motivational training that you can carry out yourself at home by getting coaching on line then get in touch with me.

Too young for any training at the moment.

Be sure to keep him indoors until he is vaccinated.

Training at 1.5 months is too early. wait atleast till his vaccinations are over. Train yourself before you get him trained.

1.5 months is NOT too early to commence motivational training known as 'Clicker Training' or 'Marker Training' - technically known as 'Operant Conditioning'. In fact it can even be initiated when athe puppies are still in the nest and suckling but that is another matter altogether. In my kennel, we start training working breeds such as GSDs and Malinois at 6 weeks of age and by 8-9 weeks they have already learnt the rudiments of tracking, bitework, retrieving, recall and basic obedience. Visit our website where you will see 6-8 week Labrador puppies being taught basic obedience and see the rapt attention with which they do it - www.biotoolsindia.com

Incidentally, the period between 8 and 12 weeks is the most critical period for socialising - the period when the in the wild, the mother teaches the pups what is safe and edible, what must be feared and avoided and what is neutral and can be ignored. This role falls on the master who has taken the pup away from its mother. If proper socialisation is not done at this stage then the pup may become fearful of anything it has not been exposed to during this period - for life. So it is extremely important to take the pup out and show it other animals, birds, people (children, women) traffic, trains, etc. Yes, there is a risk of infection if allowed to sniff around till the vaccinations take effect but you can always take it out in a basket or in your arms but surely don't make the mistake of confining it indoors out of fear of exposure.

Shaym quoting your reply here
"we start training working breeds such as GSDs and Malinois at 6 weeks of age and by 8-9 weeks they have already learnt the rudiments of tracking, bitework, retrieving, recall and basic obedience."

I must say that outdistances anything I've heard of, I wouldn't have thought a pup is that capable.

Deworm them or give them suppliements as this might be on account of deficiencies.

He was on curd rice and we are keeping him on the same diet. The vet did nt prescribe any supplements, we are giving him calcium tablets. Tried to feed chicken-rice once/day, bt he got loose stool within 2 days (not sure due to chicken or mud!)
any suggestions?

With a pup (or even with a dog) diet changes must be gradual not sudden. Try giving him things like eggs chicken stock. Do a bit of research on the portion in which a new diet should be introduced.

Is int it a gradual change when I give him new diet just once out of three meals? We actually made kima out of a very small single boneless chicken piece, made a broth and mixed that with rice.

The training starts right from the day the pup is house broken, making him aware where s/he should pee, where is his drinking bowl, where he should sleep, what are the things he should be playing with and what not, etc. Clicker training is the best way to train any puppy as its based on the principle of positive enforcement. All this has to be taught by the very owner of the puppy not by any third party.
