Every dog needs to be trained in the right way to behave, and deterred from bad behavior. This guide contains helpful tips on how to effectively train your dog.
If you want a well-trained dog, you must be willing to offer generous and appropriate rewards. It is essential that your dog get treats at the proper times and in the correct amounts. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.
When your dog behaves well in a training session, reward him in a calm manner. Give your dog a treat after they properly respond to your commands, but only if they are nice and calm. Although you may feel very pleased, control your response to avoid having your training situation become uncontrolled. Set a good example by rewarding them calmly.
Avoid restraining two dogs too closely together. The chain from one dog could wrap around the second and the dogs could get hurt trying to get free. If a big dog is tangled up with a little one, they may get so wrapped up that air passages are blocked off, and one could potentially die.
Modify and update your dog’s training as necessary, so he remains in compliance with the rules. Many owners believe that once training is over, the dog will be set for life. Some dogs will revert back to negative behaviors if the training does not continue. Your dog must follow the rule system strictly.
When you meet an unfamiliar dog, you should go up to him slowly and allow him to sniff your hand. This gives a dog a chance to become familiar with your personal scent, which engenders trust. As you become close to one another, fear will be diminished and opportunities to learn together will be increased.
An untrained dog can cause chaos in your home. With this advice you should be able to get your dog under control.
