There are many reasons for you to have a pet dog. It might be because they are an adorable companion. Whatever the reason, every dog should be well trained. In order to have an obedient dog, it will take some training. This article can help you do that.
If you are consistent, you will be able to teach your furry friend to wait. Spend plenty of time with him, and go outside with him once an hour. Make sure that you give praise if your dog goes to the bathroom outdoors. Don’t yell at your dog for an indoor accident. Your dog knows no better, and your yelling is not going to change things. Instead, give the pet every chance to succeed by taking it outside as soon as you remove it from the crate and roughly 15 minutes after it eats or drinks.
You have to train your dog not to bark when you don’t want them to. The next time your dog barks, let him see a treat and give the order for him to be quiet; repeat this until your dog stops barking. Give them a treat. In time, your dog will learn to be quiet if he wants a treat.
Your dog will be easier to train if you are careful to avoid letting him learn bad habits to begin with. Dogs find it much harder to break existing bad habits than to learn new, positive ones. If you do not want your pet to beg for food, you should never encourage it by feeding it table scraps.
You should start training your dog when it’s a puppy. If you acquire a dog later in its life, then start training it immediately. Although younger dogs tend to respond to discipline and training more thoroughly, it is still possible to teach an older dog to behave. If you train your dog when he is young, then he will grow up behaving well.
Your dog needs to exercise its brain too. For dogs that don’t chew excessively, canine puzzle toys can appeal to your dog’s senses and stimulate his problem-solving skills. Take your dog’s skills into consideration when choosing a puzzle toy for him.
A good training tip is to be aware of the special grooming needs of your dog’s breed. Certain breeds may require lots of weekly grooming; however, others may need very little or no grooming. A groomed dog is happier, cleaner, and healthier.
Positive reinforcement is the best way to train a dog. You can use treats, toys, positive speech and even belly rubs. Don’t yell and/or hit your dog. These tactics backfire and just make your dog believe you are incompetent. Instead, make sure you are firm, patient, consistent and positive so that you can achieve the best possible results.
There are many ways to make crate training more comfortable and successful for your new puppy or dog. If your pet is nervous about the crate, consider putting a toy or treat inside to motivate them to go in. This will make the puppy want to be let inside the crate to get the bone. When your dog goes inside, give him plenty of praise, and let him know he is doing a good job.
Are you ready for the hard work? Take these ideas and begin employing them in your training sessions. A well-trained dog is a good dog. It’s easy to have one too. However, it will all pay off when you see the dog’s big, loving eyes that are ready to do whatever you ask. Use what you have learned here to create the appropriate training situation for your particular pet.
