Tips And Ideas For Successful Dog Training

A dog or cute little puppy can steal the heart of many a person. If you have one already or are thinking about getting one, congratulations! A well trained pet is key to a successful relationship. Your pet will know what is expected, and you will have confidence in them – whether you are at home or not. Read the article below to get some helpful tips to contribute to a wonderful owner/pet relationship:

If you don’t want your dog watching you while you are eating or making dinner, try teaching him to stay behind an invisible line during mealtimes. Make an invisible barrier at the entrance of the kitchen and block your dog back into that spot every time he moves while you’re doing things in the kitchen and reinforce him staying and being good. He will quickly learn that staying out of the kitchen during mealtimes is the appropriate thing to do.

When training your dog, be competent! Your dog wants to know that you are in charge and that you know what you are doing. If you are inconsistent, anxious, irritable, angry, or in any way unstable while training your dog, you will not succeed. You must be calm, consistent, and competent. If you don’t know about dog training, it is a very good idea to learn from books, videos and people who know before you ever get a dog!

Wait 10 to 15 minutes after a puppy eats or drinks before you take them out to go potty. Usually, a puppy has to go in a very short time after eating and drinking. To help minimize accidents in between the time you take them outside, remember that puppies do not require a full bowl of water. If you control how much you give them, then you will be in control of training them when they need to relieve themselves.

To train your dog efficiently, you must learn how to be firm with it. But do not yell at your dog constantly: try finding the right balance between being strict when your dog misbehaves and being a loving master the rest of the time. This develops a strong relationship with your dog.

When you are giving your dog a command, make sure that you do not give it to him or her more than once. If your dog does not respond to the command that you are giving him or her then you need to try to do something to reinforce the command.

Dogs much like people all have their own personality. Some dogs can just be more difficult to train than others for whatever reason. If someone has a dog like this that is not responding to training or otherwise acting difficult sometimes the right choice is to seek a professional dog trainer for help and information.

Hopefully, you have read a tip or two that will help you with your owner/pet relationship. Apply the information that fits your circumstances. No doubt, your heart is or will be tied up in a cute little puppy or faithful dog. Training is a key to success! Make sure your pet is well trained. Congratulations on your furry friend!
