If puppy training is something new to you, it may be that you could benefit greatly from some tips and tricks. Here are some great tips to start you out on the right foot.
Only reward your dog if they are calm. If your pet successfully completes a task, then reward him only if he/she is calm. While you may be overjoyed with headway you are making, showing excitement causes the dog to become excited and makes you lose control. Remain calm, expect them to be calm, and then award them when appropriate.
Crate training requires extreme consistency. When the dog is let out of the crate, it is necessary to give him a chance to relive himself right away. Eventually, the puppy will learn to wait to pee until given the opportunity.
Give your dog a clear verbal cue that means “yes” to aid in training. “Yes” works very well when said the same way time and time again.
You can show your dog how to do tricks, get some treats. First, place your dog in the “down” position. Next, hold the treat close to the floor on one side of the dog’s head, and slowly bringing it upwards and over to the dog’s other side. He should follow the treat with his nose, causing him to roll his whole body over. When he rolls over, you should say “roll over,” and repeat the process until the command is all he needs to do so. It will probably take multiple attempts, but you will be the talk of the town when the trick is learned.
As you train dogs, it is necessary to utilize a consistent tone and volume when giving commands. The dog will know you’re telling them what to do that way. You should also work on developing different tones to use in different situations. For example, you can have a sharp one for disciplinary purposes, and a firm, but not-as-sharp one for simple commands.
Silence your dog’s excessive barking by teaching them a silencing command. When it starts barking, show them the treat and say the command until it quits barking. You could give your dog treats. By repeating this, the dog learns that silence brings treats.
Training your dog can be simple, effective and even fun, when you have the right advice on hand. After you begin using what you have learned, you will find your dog responding to you more positively.
