Be sure you are walking your dog and not the other way around! The piece below offers critical canine training advice suitable for every owner.
The key to successful crate training with a new canine is making sure they understand that it is their home. You should put their food in the cage and leave the door open if it is time for them to eat. This way, your dog will associate positive things with being inside the crate.
For the best results in training your pet, you must be diligent about giving rewards and encouragement. Unless you offer treats appropriately and frequently, it’s almost impossible to keep him motivated and interested. If your timing is off, your dog will not understand what you are rewarding.
Establish feeding habits for your dog. Make sure that they know when a meal is coming, so that they can get into a set routine. Soon, your pet will finish the meal before you’re ready to remove its dish.
Repetition is what causes a dog to learn. Repetition is key in training your dog. Some estimate that your pet must hear a command as many as 50 times to learn it. Try using the command more often and be very patient if you want your dog to learn.
You should train your dog to walk properly on his leash. The safety of both of you while out walking is paramount, and the proper training will ensure this.
Make sure your dog understand he does not need to respond to the word “no”. Stick to positive training methods, as they can help the most. When you say ‘no’, your dog isn’t understanding how it should respond to you. Because no two dogs are the same, the training you use should work with their needs.
The first step in your puppy training would be to teach him his name. This will create a nice bond between the two of you. Call him by name frequently, and teach him to come when called. Usually this simple command “come” and their name, are what they learn first. By setting aside some special time for you and your puppy, you will give him the opportunity to get to know you, as well as trust you. This will make it easier to train him as he gets older.
To train your dog efficiently, you must learn how to be firm with it. Don’t just yell at your pooch. Learn how to balance compassion with strictness. Doing so improves the relationship between you two.
Your dog will behave well if you keep reinforcing your training. Just because a dog becomes more mature doesn’t mean it cannot learn new things. If you reinforce desired behaviors, you will ensure your dog’s continued obedience, and by continuing to discipline your dog, you will prevent negative behaviors from appearing.
Your relationship with your dog can suffer if you don’t know what you need to train them. Now that you are armed with the advice you need, you can get started on training your pooch to be a happy and healthy member of the family.
