Everyone likes having a dog because they bring joy and love into our lives. A puppy is quite a bit of work. You must train your dog extensively. Thankfully, this article should provide you with a ton of training advice you can use starting today.
It is essential to have the correct timing for your training sessions. Begin with small sessions and increase the time daily. See where your dog starts not paying attention to the training session.
Reinforce calm behavior upon your arrival. Your pet needs play time (and you might too), but your pet needs to be calm when you step into rooms most of the time. Try not to acknowledge your pet when you set foot into rooms, and this can imbue calm environments most of the time, since your dog will wait for you to start play time.
Dogs have great focus and can focus on one thing, ignoring everything else, until something breaks their attention. If you do it enough times, your dog will wait for your signals instead of focusing on other things.
Regulate your dog’s feeding time if you want to regulate his “potty” times too. To keep your puppies toiletry habits regular, feed him a high quality food 2-3 times a day at the same time each day. If you know when the puppy eats, you will be able to better predict when to take him out. This means fewer accidents!
When training your dogs, always use the same tone of voice and volume level when you give a command. Your tone conveys seriousness to the dog and the fact that they must obey you. They will also know when you are being positive.
Never allow your training sessions to run on for too long. Dogs can’t pay attention for a long time, so keep sessions short and dynamic. If you want to do anymore training, let the dog have a play break for stretching and relaxing before continuing with their training.
Take the information in this article to develop a training plan for your puppy. You need to have a lot of patience and give your dog a treat if they do well. You cannot expect to master these tips in mere days, but as long as you stay dedicated, you can succeed in training your dog.
