You can train your dog to the point where he will not bark excessively, growl or exhibit aggressive behavior. What is more, all of the positive traits associated with dogs like obedience, faithfulness, and respect, can be included with the correct training regimen. Proper training can turn any dog into the perfect pet.

Rewarding dogs properly and generously is the key to training. Reward your dog with some treats right after they obey an order. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.

TIP! Repetition is the key to success when teaching a dog a new command. It is not uncommon for it to take between 25 to 50 repetitions of the same command for your dog to learn it.

Choosing the correct crate size is extremely important. Don’t forget, your puppy will grow. Get a crate that is the right size for your dog when it gets older. The ideal size would be one that doesn’t make your dog crowded when turning around or laying down.

As your dog responds to his training, you can begin to allow him more freedom. Rewarding them by showing them you trust them more will only encourage better behavior. Just be careful not to overdo it on the freedom initially as it can set your puppy training efforts back.

If your dog jumps when you don’t want him to, gently squeeze his paws. Although it may be uncomfortable, it does not hurt them when done lightly. After some time, they won’t jump on anyone because they’ll associate it with being made to feel uncomfortable.

TIP! During the dog training process, take care not to inadvertently reinforce bad behavior. This means that you should never reward your dog, with treats or attention, for doing something you’re trying to train it out of.

Always call your dog’s attention by doing the same thing. Always start your commands with his name. Use your dog’s name to get his or her attention. Once you do this, tell your dog your command. Your dog will notice their name and they will see that you want their attention.

Training your dog does not have to be a battle between you and your pet. The important part of puppy training is to have the right information and understand that it is not impossible. A dog will become an even better pet thanks to the owner’s patience and training.
