Your dog can be taught and trained how to act properly and drop very annoying habits. In cases when these behaviors can’t be completely eliminated, they can be minimized by using these tips. With right obedience training, even the most rowdy behavior can be corrected.

When you are working on crate training with your dog or puppy small steps is what works best for them to get used to it. When they’ve settled down with the gate open, slowly shut it and pass treats through the gate. In the beginning it is important to only leave the dog in the crate for a few seconds. After a while you will be able to leave them in the crate for longer amounts of time. If your puppy gets upset, then you may need to slow down and have more patience with them.

TIP! Timing is critical during dog training, and you must spend sufficient time on training without doing too much. Start out with a small training session and up the time every day.

When your dog behaves well in a training session, reward him in a calm manner. If the dog follows commands correctly, you should reward the animal only if it is calm. If you get excited, the dog will become excited and everything will be out of control. Be calm, expect calm, then reward appropriately.

Try not to reinforce bad behavior in your dog by accident. Do not pay attention to your dog or pet it if he does something you are not happy about. You should not pet your dog when it jumps on you or acknowledge its barking.

TIP! When training your dog, remember to be patient. Staying patient will help all parties to avoid frustration.

By now, every dog owner should be aware of how easy canine training can really be. It should be understood that the dog owner will also go through a sort of training. It is not up to just the trainer to transform a dog’s behavior; training must follow the pet home. A dog will become an even better pet thanks to the owner’s patience and training.
