It is important that your beloved dog and your valuable possessions coexist successfully. With pets, it’s a bit more difficult to instill this appreciation for your property — especially if it appears particularly tasty to your dog. In this article, we will review methods for teaching your dog to limit chewing to his own toys.

When crate training an indoor dog or puppy, you may try some tricks. Many dogs are intimidated by the crate. To cure this, place something they enjoy in it and shut the door. As soon as they smell the tempting treat, they will want to get into the crate to enjoy it. After your dog goes into the crate, give positive reinforcement to increase the chance that he will go into the crate again.

TIP! Don’t use things like shock collars. They might not work like they say they do and they cost too much.

Look at it in your dog’s point of view. Frustration can be easily acquired if the dog fails to learn simple things in a rapid manner. Don’t give up- think like your dog! This can help you come up with new ideas on how to accomplish your training objectives.

You need to adhere to a specific feeding routine for your dog. A predictable feeding schedule and removing the food promptly will teach them to eat their food quickly. Soon your dog will be finished with the meal before you are ready to remove the dish.

Keep your dog active. Dogs can get bored easily. A bored dog will try and find something interesting to do, and training is not usually interesting. Your dog needs proper exercise to function to his highest potential. Walk or run your dog frequently.

TIP! As the dog gets better at training, you can let it have more freedom. The key to a satisfying life for your dog is a balance of freedom and obedience.

Teaching dogs to roll over can be easy, provided some treats are on hand. Initially, try to get your dog to lay on the floor. You can put the treat on the floor by their head and then raise it up over to the other side. They should follow that treat with their nose, which should cause them to roll over. As he rolls, state the command “roll over” in a firm tone. Repeat the process until your dog associates the command with the action. It may take a while to get to this point, but you will be pleased if you stick with it. It’s an impressive trick.

Pick a recognizable phrase to verbalize to your puppy during house training. Every single time you take your pup to do his business, say something like “need to go out?”. It does not matter the phrase you choose, as long as you keep it consistent. This will keep him focused, and will teach him to associate those words with the action of relieving himself.

As you progress with your dog’s training, you should begin to give it more and more freedom. The right balance of training, obedience and freedom ensures your dog has an enjoyable life. Avoid giving too much freedom early on, as this can easily counteract your training.

TIP! Putting your dog on a regular schedule of feeding and walks will help to regulate his system, so he will be easier to house train. This will help you better understand when your dog needs to go outside, so he doesn’t go on the carpet and ruin it.

Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise in addition to scheduled training and potty break sessions. Making sure your dog has enough exercise makes training sessions more effective and encourages regular good behavior from your dog. A dog is happy when it gets it exercise and a happy dog follows orders.

If your training program is to be successful, you must be committed to asserting yourself firmly. However, that doesn’t mean yelling at your dog. Be loving while maintaining your authority. This will help develop a strong bond during your training session.

Challenge your dog to try new things and maintain the old things. Try giving them “quizzes” to see what they know, even if you know they will succeed.

TIP! The first thing you should teach your dog is to “leave it.” This commands the dog to drop whatever is in its mouth.

Be certain you are giving the right signals when your dog exhibits unacceptable behavior. Your dog picks up on your reactions to things so if you laugh at bad behavior they will take that as it is okay to continue what they are doing. This can hinder training and cause you to get frustrated. Correcting the behavior and showing that you are displeased will help to make training much easier.

Stay consistent when you train your dog. Consistency includes tone of voice, trained words, treats, and commands.

In order to teach your pet how to sit, make him stand and hold the treat in front of it. Move the treat just above the dog’s head, moving a hand behind the dog. The dog will naturally want to follow the treat. Naturally, the dog will sit in order to see upward.

TIP! If your training program is to be successful, you must be committed to asserting yourself firmly. Avoid yelling at your dog.

In summary, you have to prevent your dog from negative behavior. A well-behaved pet is less likely to injure himself and will also help you avoid the cost and frustration of household repairs. Try to use these hints and tricks and you can have a good and healthy pet.
