If you want a trusting, obedient dog, it is important to begin training immediately. Dog training is not easy, but the more knowledge you have, the easier it will be. With the tips presented here, you will be able to train your dog effectively.
Dogs have a tendency to zone in on one particular thing until something else grabs their attention. Dogs learn by repetition so with continued training, your dog will immediately focus on what you are saying.
A number of repetitions will be necessary before your dog will be able to master a new command. It may take as many as fifty repetitions before your dog learns the command. Continue repeating the command patiently, and eventually your dog will understand it.
As you begin training your dog, create a verbal cue that allows your pet to understand the exact moment that they correctly complete your command. Words like “yes” could be an effective way of communicating to your dog that he has done something you are pleased about.
In dog training, use the same volume and tone of voice when you state a command. This lets them know you’re serious and that they must obey. In time, your dog will understand what you want regardless of which words you use.
For a dog to become house trained you should always have them on the same feeding schedule everyday, so their elimination time is always the same. By establishing a regular potty-time every day, you will get your dog in the habit of doing his business at the same time daily. Then he will become practiced at waiting until the right time.
“Leave it” is an important command to teach, starting when you bring your dog home. This can help get your dog to stop chomping on your belongings and help keep them safe from hazardous materials.
If your dog is jumping on you, grab his paws with your hands and gently squeeze them to deter his behavior. This will not hurt if done lightly, but it will be an uncomfortable feeling. They will quickly learn to avoid doing it in order to avoid the sensation.
When training your dog, make sure to have fun with him too. When you play with your dog, it strengthens the bond between you and them, thus encouraging the pet to stay positive during training. Training can be pretty fun, but make sure you get plenty of non-training play in too.
You should never do long sessions of training. Dogs can’t pay attention for a long time, so keep sessions short and dynamic. You can choose to adopt a more intensive regimen, but only if you are willing to allow your dog a few moments of relaxation and play to break up the session.
It is essential that you your dog listens to you. The information above contains good dog training techniques. Keep at it. Don’t abandon your efforts if your dog takes a while to learn. Repetition is really the key to successfully training your dog, you can not expect them to learn everything in one day.
