To have a happy life with your dog, you need to make sure that it is properly trained. If your dog is trained well, then you should both know what is to be expected of the other. You will not have to worry about leaving him home along or taking him to public places. Although it may not be easy, the time you devote to teaching your dog manners, tricks, and the proper way to do things will be well spent.
Crate training a puppy must establish the fact the the crate is the new home of the puppy. Feed your dog inside the crate with the door open. This will give your dog a positive association with the crate.
You should establish certain feeding habits for your dog. Train your dog to understand that you are going to remove their food bowl upon fifteen minutes of feeding them. This will establish a feeding schedule for your dog. After some time training the dog this way, it will begin to finish the food before it is time to pick up the bowl.
When training your pet, you must be patient. This will keep you and your pupy from becoming frustrated or angry. Keep in mind that dogs do wish to please their owners, but cannot always understand what is desired of them.
Your daily schedule should consist of regular potty breaks, regular training sessions and an hour of good exercise. When your dog gets adequate exercise, he can be trained more effectively and it can bring out your dog’s good behavior. If your dog gets exercise, they will be happier and more eager to learn.
One of the most important factors in training your dog is establishing rules and making sure that these rules are followed on both ends. This will allow trust between you and your dog. Always reinforce everything you have taught your dog. Be consistent when disciplining him and monitoring his behavior. After your dog has learned the basics, you can work together more effectively to instill more complex behaviors.
