A dog can be trained to stop negative behavior such as growling and barking. Even if there are still a few slip-ups, any behavior can be modified with the tips in this article. Dog training can turn a dog into an ideal pet.
Try to think about what it would be like to be your dog. Frustration may come quickly if your dog does not pick up your training of basic things quickly. Rather than abandoning the training, consider what the dog might be thinking. Your training will improve if you view things the way they do.
Learning how to show authority is the foundation of all dog training. If the dog does not understand that you have control he will ignore your commands and act with outright disobedience. Don’t let your dog control the direction or pace of your walks.
With the right encouragement, most dogs can learn to roll over pretty quickly. First, make your dog lay down. Afterward, bring the treat above the dogs head and follow over to their other side. This will cause your dog to use their nose to follow the treat. As a result, your dog will roll over. As he rolls over say out loud, “roll over.” Repeat this until he rolls over with the command alone. It will take some work, but keep on trying!
Be ready with a favorite treat when your dog successfully completes a command. You want to make sure that your dog understands that he has accomplished a good thing. You will ensure that your dog knows how to tell right from wrong if you do this.
If you need to approach a dog that you are not familiar with, approach it slowly and allow it to sniff your hand. This gives the dog a chance to become accustomed to your personal scent and shows him you mean no harm. When he knows who you are, he’ll do what you ask.
Primary reinforcement is an important part of any training program. Primary reinforcement uses something that is inherent for the dog to love as a reward for good behavior. Use things such as treats or petting your dog to reinforce good behavior. This helps teach your dog that he can get exactly what he wants.
Teach your dog no response is needed for the word ‘no’. Find some positive ways to enforce training when you train your dog. When you tell your dog “no” during training, he has no idea what you want him to do instead of the behavior you reprimand. Because no two dogs are the same, the training you use should work with their needs.
Use your dog’s name as much as you can to make sure he is paying attention. Use his name more when he is a puppy. By the time he is grown, he will automatically give you his attention when you say his name. Give your dog a relatively short name, preferably one that isn’t likely to be confused with other words.
It should be evident from this article that training a dog does not have to be a monumental battle. With a good mindset and adequate training techniques, your dog can be trained very easily. Dogs are capable of thriving with the right training.
