Dog Won’t Listen? Training Him Will Help!

You plan on raising your dog to be a show dog and need to know all of the tips and tricks to be successful. This article will go into depth with all of the things you need to do to be sure that you are training your show dog correctly.

Your dog should learn he doesn’t need to respond when you say ‘no’. When training your dog you need to find positive ways to enforce your training. Saying ‘no’ doesn’t help your dog understand how he should react to you. Every situation and dog is different and their training should be tailored accordingly.

Understand that training takes time. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking a dog is ‘untrainable’ when things don’t go according to plan immediately. Some dogs respond to commands sooner than others, and it is usually according to breed and age. If you have adopted an older dog, it may take a long time, as he will already be set in his ways. Remember to be patient, and understand that a dog always wants to please his owner in the long run.

Your punishments should never be too strict. If your dog is overly excited, take a time out and let him cool his jets before continuing with your task. A time out goes a long way in helping a dog focus, especially if it’s taken in a quiet area away from whatever has distracted him.

Young puppies are prone to chewing on their owners belongings. You can address this problem by immediately stopping your puppy if he chews an inappropriate item. You should then, instead, give him the toys that he is allowed to chew. Praise your dog anytime you finding him chewing a permitted toy. Remaining consistent with this training method can save your favorite furniture or pair of shoes.

Finding out what motivates your dog is the key to successful training. All dogs have different tastes and preferences, but it is also important to keep in mind that the reward you’re giving your dog should be healthy. Even if the treats at the store say your dog will like it, make sure to double check the ingredients. Cheese and strong- smelling meats are very popular, but oftentimes falsely advertised at the store containing a mix artificial tastes and smells.

When training your dog, the first and most important thing that you train your dog is to respect you and your family. If they feel that they can get away with disrespecting you, they will ultimately be impossible to train. You must start here and move on to other habits and tricks next.

Only give commands you are prepared to follow through with, or the dog will learn that it is all right to ignore you. If you give the command to sit, the dog must sit immediately or you will enforce the command with a finger pushing down on the lower back. Never give a command and allow the dog to choose whether to obey you or not unless you want to let the dog be the one in charge.

In summary, the success of your show dog is important to you. The tips provided in this article are proven to be the best ways to train your show dog in every aspect. While not every method works for every owner or dog, hopefully these tips will enable you to train your dog correctly.
