A dog or puppy can easily steal the hearts of many. If you’ve got one and wish to get another, that’s great! You will have a better relationship with your dog if he is trained properly. Your dog will know how to behave; you will feel confident that he will behave himself properly. Read the guide below in order to get helpful tips on how to have a good pet/owner relationship.

Timing is everything in training your dog, and you need to make sure you don’t overdo it. You should not over do it, train in small time increments. Once your dog is distracted, it is time for a break.

TIP! Rewards are essential to effective training. It is important that you provide the right amount of treats at the correct times.

Specific feeding habits should be established for your dog. You can set a firm schedule by teaching the dog to anticipate that the food will be removed within 10 to 15 minutes of the start of mealtime. Shortly, the dog will start finishing their food well before you plan to take the dish away.

Do your best to keep your dog active through the day. Dogs can get bored very easily. Conditions of boredom are not conducive to training. It is easier for your dog to focus if he is happy and well exercised. Go on runs or long walks together.

If you say ‘no’, your dog should understand that it does not need a response. When training your dog, you need to find positive ways to enforce your training. Using the word “no” will not help your dog learn that a behavior is unacceptable. Each dog is unique and has unique requirements. Training should be geared towards their needs and personality.

TIP! Do not tie up your dogs too closely. The restraints for each dog can become tangled and in an effort to free themselves, they can be injured.
