Although you may care for your things, your dog may not feel the same way. Dogs will not value your things and they will chew on things that look chewable. In this article, we will review methods for teaching your dog to limit chewing to his own toys.
Timing is everything in puppy training, and you need to make sure you don’t overdo it. Begin with brief sessions and extend them from there. See where your dog starts not paying attention to the training session.
Put yourself in the dog’s situation. It is easy to get frustrated with your dog if they are not learning very basic things quickly or at all. Don’t give up. Instead, think about what it must be like to be your dog. Imagining the world as they see it might give you a new perspective on training them.
Repetition is key to teaching your dog new commands. It is said that a human only masters something when they do it 10,000 times, and dogs are no different, although it should take much less repetitions than that! Keep trying, your dog will pick it up.
Training your dog starts with patience. This prevents both of you from getting irritated and angry with the training. Your dog will do its best to please you, but give your dog enough time to remember orders. A puppy needs to form the association between a word and the behavior you expect with that command.
Don’t spend too long on a single canine training session. A long, uninterrupted training period is going to exhaust your dog’s attention. This is why you need to limit the time of your training sessions to around 10 minutes.
Ensure that your dog gets 60 minutes of daily exercise on top of routine potty breaks or training periods. This exercise will ensure that your dog is focused when it is training time. Fit dogs are happy and responsive to you.
You need to be use rewards and positive reinforcers when you are training your pet. Give your dog rewards every time he or she does something good. Don’t ever yell at or hit your dog. This is ineffective and will just convince your dog that you don’t know what you are doing. Stay consistent and use positive reinforcement.
Training needs to continue during the dog’s life. You do not have to stop training them as a puppy. If you always train your dog they will stay obedient and you will not encourage any new bad habits.
Make sure you’re aware of any other dogs in the area when walking your dog. You should not assume every dog is friendly; some dogs may be aggressive. If you happen upon an aggressive dog, walk away from the aggressive dog.
Using a loose leash is key when you are training your dog to accept a leash. When a dog gets the chance to explore new sights, sounds and smells on a walk, he often becomes very excitable. Because they are so eager, they often pull on the leash. Informed owners avoid this behavior by leaving a bit of slack when walking.
You need to let your dog be a dog, so give him some time to burn off that energy. Dogs need an appropriate diet, a place to run out their energy and lots of ways to keep busy.
When training your dog, it is important to always be consistent. Consistency must apply in terms of your commands, your tone of voice and the different rewards you offer for good behavior.
In summary, you have to prevent your dog from negative behavior. This prevents them getting hurt and also saves you irritation and money. These tips will be able to stop improper chewing.
