Canine training is a great way to have an obedient relationship with your dog. Puppy training can be tumultuous, so be prepared for some ups and downs. Arm yourself with tips from this guide and you will surely be able to train your dog the right way.
“Leave It!” should be one of the first commands that a puppy learns. This command instructs them to release an object and walk away. This simple command is beneficial in making him stop on chewing furniture inside the house.
Break complex tricks into smaller behaviours when training your dog. Let’s use training your dog to fetch the paper as an example. The first step is learning to hold something. Next, you need to teach him how to identify the object by name. Then he must be taught how to pick the item up. Finally, he should learn how to bring it over to you. When you break down the actions like this, it will be easier to communicate what you want to your dog.
You need to stay patient if you are going to be training your dog. Train them gradually so they do not feel rushed into anything. Many dogs learn quickly, but others, not so much. Patience is a virtue, and that is doubly true for training your dog.
It is very easy to teach a pooch to roll over as long as you have some tasty treats on hand. First, have the dog lay down. The next step is to hold a treat close to the floor by the dog’s head then continue to move the treat over his head until you reach the other side. He’ll follow your hand and roll over completely. When they roll over, yell “roll over.” Keep doing this until they do it just with the command. Be patient while he masters this trick. He will be a star once he does!
If you have to keep your dogs outside, never tie them up too close to one another. The chain from one dog could wrap around the second and the dogs could get hurt trying to get free. In the case that a large dog and small dog become entangled, the large dog’s rope or chain could cut off air circulation to the small dog, and it could be severely injured or die.
Do not ever scream at or strike your dog. This teaches your dog nothing and will just show him that you do not know how to train him. Firmness, positivity and consistency are the keys to solid canine training.
Be sure your dog listens well to you. The article above outlined some great tips for you to use in your training your dog techniques. Getting the desired results takes time, so be prepared for the occasional setback. To produce an obedient dog, repetition and time is essential and knowledge about effective techniques is critical.
