Your dog is your family and it’s okay to be stuck on figuring out friendly methods of training him or her. This article sheds some light on simple training tips that you will find useful in training your dog. Education creates success, so educating yourself about how you should train your dog is an important first step.
Consistency is very important when you are crate training your puppy. When your puppy gets out of its crate, you need to give it the occasion to relieve itself right away. Eventually, the puppy will learn to wait to pee until given the opportunity.
Do not tie a dog up near another dog, or dogs. Doing so could cause injuries to the dogs if they become entangled in the chains and attempt to free themselves. If two dogs’ chains become entangled, it is possible that one or both dogs could experience difficulty breathing or even strangulation.
Training should begin with the easier commands. Not only does this give you a feeling of satisfaction in your success, but your dog also learns about what an acceptable behavior is. This gives you awesome results during the training process.
“Quiet” is a command you will probably want to teach your dog. After your dog starts barking, show your pet the reward and repeat the command until they cease. Only give them the treat when they obey the command. In time, your dog will learn to be quiet if he wants a treat.
Whenever you go for walk with your dog, keep your eyes peeled for other dogs. Some dogs tend to be aggressive, and it’s not safe to assume that every dog owner is responsible. If you are aware of an antisocial or aggressive dog, steer your dog away.
You should now feel a little more competent and comfortable in your role as a dog trainer. Choosing to follow some of the advice and tips in this article, will not only make you a better trainer, but a better listener, who can understand the needs of your dog. Small tips equal large progress.
