Dogs may be man’s best friend, but some days will leave you frustrated and feeling like your dog is against you. Don’t worry, with proper techniques even the worst dog can learn to be well behaved.
Timing is important when puppy training, so you should spend sufficient time training him but should not overdo it. Start with a quick session initially, adding time with successive training periods. When the animal appears to lose interest, you will know which duration produces the best results per session.
Set a schedule and routine for feeding your dog from the very beginning of your relationship. Train your dog to understand that you are going to remove their food bowl upon fifteen minutes of feeding them. This will establish a feeding schedule for your dog. This will ensure he eats it all quickly instead of doddling or grazing all day.
Provide your puppy with his own chew toys to alleviate the pain of teething, and try to keep other items out of reach. You need to replace that with a designated chew toy. Teething pain can be soothed by a washcloth that has been soaked in water and frozen.
Consistency is very important when you are crate training your puppy. When your puppy gets out of its crate he will need to relieve himself. Over time, the puppy will be able to wait until the appropriate opportunity to answer the call of nature.
Choose the right dog crate size if you wish to utilize the crate effectively to train him. Your little puppy will get bigger, remember! Choose a crate that your puppy can grow in, but won’t grow out of. The ability to move around within the crate is paramount to the pet’s comfort.
When starting to train a dog, make verbal cues that let the animal know the exact time when they correctly carry out a command. Using an affirmative word can help your dog understand they did their part and it is time for a treat.
Many dog owners are quite surprised at how quickly they can achieve good results with even a basic training your dog routine. Therefore, should you start to feel frustration with your dog, put some of the following advice to work.
