You adore your dog, but you also like the items you own. Unfortunately, the dog does not like your things as much as you do; most of the things left out are chewable to a dog. Read on to find out how to train your dog so your life can be less stressful.
If you ever use your dog’s individual name in a warning mode or tone, make sure that you complement that with three or four positive uses too. He must not think that his name is a negative word. If he does, then he won’t come when called.
A clicker can be a useful tool for positive reinforcement. By associating the clicking noise with positive rewards, you can make a clicker an easy and effective tool. Start by clicking and immediately giving a reward, and repeat this several times a day for a few days. In time, your canine friend will recognize the clicker as your voice saying “great job!” He will want to hear this noise and so will act appropriately.
One tip to keep in mind when training your dog is to be sure that you introduce it to social environments early and frequently. He needs to learn how to behave around both humans and other dogs. This is best taught early. This will help in reducing sporadic behavior when it comes to new environments, also.
There are a lot of tricks you can teach your dog to do; a common one is training him to hold a toy in his mouth without chewing it. Every time he successfully holds onto the toy with his mouth, hit the clicker and proceed by giving him a treat. When he repeats this a couple of times, watch for when he actually puts it into his mouth. After has has done this, you should click and promptly give a reward. As he gets even better, only give him a reward for holding the plushie in his mouth for a few seconds.
Be aware of special grooming requirements your dog might need. If you have a dog that requires a lot of grooming, make sure that this is done frequently. A dog who is properly cleaned and groomed is protected against sickness and is more comfortable and easygoing.
Dogs learn by repetitive technique and reward. After first, clearly demonstrate the behavior you are aiming for, set a daily routine and a regular reward for successfully practicing the behavior. This is, if not the only, certainly the best method for effective dog training. Show your pet the right way through rewards and repetition.
All the time you spend with your dog will contribute to develop your dog’s personality. Realize that you could very well sabotage your own training efforts with innocent activities such as rough-housing. You want to constantly be teaching your dog the behavior that you want it to have.
To make the most of your dog training efforts, stay consistent. Have a set list of commands that everyone in the household knows. Remember to always reward a good behavior and not a bad behavior. If the dog gets different responses from different people, he can get confused.
Your dog should always be able to identify which behaviors are acceptable and which are not. Everyone who lives with your dog will have to undertake the same behavior for him to learn from your training. This will undo all your training!
In conclusion, you need to stop your dog from chewing on all of your stuff. This not only keeps your dog safe, but saves you money on vet bills. These tips will be able to stop improper chewing.
