Training a dog to act the way that is desirable and in a way that is manageable, safe, and fun for the owner should be the end goals of dog training. Using the information in the following reading will allow a person to achieve these goals for training.
Don’t interact with your dog when you are frustrated or angry. Simply put your dog up and take a break. Training will proceed much more efficiently when you return. Each of you will be rested, have a fresh outlook, and be ready to tackle that seemingly elusive training task once again.
When interacting with other dogs, expect a calm, sedate attitude from your pet before letting them go loose. By establishing a calm demeanor in your pet, you will cause a ripple effect through the other animals as well as teaching your dog that you control the environment. This will make it easier to withdraw your dog when it is time to go as well.
When working on teaching your dog a command, keep training sessions short. It is much better to train your dog for 5 minutes, 3 times a day, than all in one 15 minute session. This will keep your dog focused. Before your dog gets bored, end the session. This will keep him interested and wanting more. For more information, check out this guide by ooh lalapets.com.
Watch your demeanor when you are training your dog. You need to remain calm, but assertive at all times. Do not show anger or raise your voice. If you do this, your dog will require you to shout commands in order to follow them, if this is how he is trained.
When house training your dog, be sure your dog has a predictable feeding and elimination routine. This can help you avoid accidents on the carpet by becoming aware of when the dog needs to go. Conversely, this also teaches your dog that he may need to wait to go to the bathroom.
When you are training a dog, it is crucial that you never use physical punishment when the dog behaves badly or wrongly. Striking your dog won’t teach them to listen to you; it will only teach them to be afraid of you. It may even train them to become aggressive towards people.
Teach your puppy his or her name before you start to train him or her, as this creates a bond. Use his name frequently, and train him to come to you when called. His name should be the first word he learns. Spend lots of time with your dog, so it gets to know you and understands that you are to be trusted. This will make him easier to train later.
To prevent any mess in your house, you can install a doggy toilet. Once your dog knows that it has to go outside the house, use the same command you used to make it understand that outside is a good place to go in association with the doggy toilet.
Your dog can be trained now that you have the know how to do so. With the right information the job can be done the right way and some fun can also be had with your dog along the way. Now that you have the knowledge you simply need to apply it.
