Love your dog, but also love your material possessions. That said, your dog doesn’t feel the same way. The following article will show you how you can train your dog to let him know the rules of your house.
Crates should feel like a safe place to puppies. So, you should never use them as a way to discipline your dog. Dogs may need to be familiarized with the crate to feel comfortable and secure in it. There are many tricks that you can try to make it easier for both of you. If your puppy seems reluctant about entering the crate, place a chew toy inside and close the door to the kennel. They will see the toy inside the crate and will want in the crate to get it. Once they enter the crate, be sure to praise them to show that what they did was good.
Rewarding dogs properly and generously is the key to training. Reward your dog with some treats right after they obey an order. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.
Make sure your dog is eating a healthy diet. A poor diet is bad for your dog on several levels. If your dog isn’t getting what it needs to stay healthy, it could really struggle to find the energy for training or may act out in other ways. Feeding your dog quality food can greatly affect what you accomplish during training sessions.
Crate training requires extreme consistency. When your puppy gets out of its crate he will need to relieve himself. Over time, the puppy will learn to wait until he is in this location.
Your dog may not learn a command right away. You may need to repeat the same command lesson from 25 to 30 times before your dog learns it. Continue trying the same command and be patient, your dog will get it.
Whenever your dog jumps onto you, grab their paw and gentle squeeze to make sure they understand that jumping is not good behavior. This will not hurt your dog if done lightly, but it will impart the information that jumping up is not appropriate. After a while, they will stop jumping on people because they will associate it with the uncomfortable feeling.
Understand that getting your dog to respond during the times that you tell him or her ‘no’ is not helpful. Use positive reinforcement to encourage good behavior. When you tell your dog “no” during training, he has no idea what you want him to do instead of the behavior you reprimand. There is a difference in all dogs and training should be customized.
In conclusion, you need to stop your dog from chewing on all of your stuff. Behavioral issues can lead to serious injuries as well as negative feelings and loss of property. These tips will be able to stop improper chewing.
