You and your dog will both benefit from training. When your dog has been properly trained, it becomes easier for him to meet your expectations. If you train your dog, you won’t have to worry about what might happen when you leave the house. have guests, or walk him in the neighborhood. It will not always be easy to train your dog. It takes a lot of time and effort to properly train a dog.
Correct your dog verbally with short, sharp statements. Avoid going on a rant about the dog’s “badness”. Say no and give them a command to do the right thing. Let your dog know that if you raise your voice they need to pay attention.
Your dog’s diet plays a huge role in their training and establishing a definitive feeding routine is important. Teaching your dog to realize that when you place its food bowl down, it will be removed within 10-15 minutes, will help it understand that there is a feeding schedule to stick to. Shortly, the dog will start finishing their food well before you plan to take the dish away.
Always reward good, calm behavior. If your pet successfully completes a task, then reward him only if he/she is calm. Though you may be happy with the accomplishment, excitement on your part leads to excitement on their part and diminishes control of the situation. Stay calm, have them be calm, and reward them for appropriate behavior.
You should train your dog to walk properly on his leash. This will help keep your dog and you safe when going for walks.
If your training program is to be successful, you must be committed to asserting yourself firmly. That said, love should prevail and yelling should never occur. This will help you build a great relationship with your pup.
If your pet is a problematic barker, try this training tip. Choose a simple word or directive you can use to quiet him down and discourage barking. Each time your dog barks, wave a treat in front of him and voice your command. Then, you are able to reward the dog. By repeating this, the dog learns that silence brings treats.
Puppy training teaches both you and the pet what each can expect out of the other. It sets rules and boundaries that makes the dog safer, happier and more of a joy to be around. Do not let your dog forget what has been learned. Keep his memory crisp, and do not let any deviations from acceptable behavior slide through. After your dog has learned the basics, you can work together more effectively to instill more complex behaviors.
