Great Ways To Train Your Dog Right

Your dog does not hate you and is acting crazy out of spite for you. No, it is just being crazy because it hasn’t learned any other way for it to act yet. However, that is going to change once one learns the tips that are contained in this very article.

While training your dog, observe his body language and general behavior closely. Look for signs of enthusiasm. Is his tail wagging? Does he follow you around? This shows he’s ready to learn. If you see your dog is scared, bored or nervous, stop what you are doing and reevaluate.

For your dog to understand what you are punishing them for, you need to catch them misbehaving. If you reprimand a dog for something that happened hours ago, chances are your dog will not make the connection. And if you choose to ignore your dog to show that you are mad, do not ignore it for more than a few minutes.

If your dog is misbehaving, try to determine why. It is important to work out why your dog is doing what it does. Knowing the reason for poor behavior can make training significantly easier. It is far more difficult to correct an action that you do not fully understand the reasoning behind.

Training your dog doesn’t have to be a chore. Make training into a game that will enrich your dog’s life. Try having your dog sit each time he brings you the ball you threw. By incorporating training into playtime, you’ll have a fun and rewarding experience which results in a well-mannered pet!

When your dog does not do what you want, tell him “No!” then redirect him. Be patient and calm. Your dog wants to please you, but sometimes dogs just don’t understand what is expected of them. Never hit or yell at your dog. If you yell and hit, your dog will just think you are out of control. You want your dog to trust you and respect you as the pack leader, so stay calm and consistent.

Gradually allow your dog more freedom. A new dog has to earn his freedom around the house. Otherwise, expect housetraining problems and chewing that causes damage, especially with puppies. Close off doors, or use gates to section off rooms or parts of the house. Over time, as they are house broken and learn to listen to commands, allow them more freedom.

When you are introducing two dogs to each other, try to do this on neutral territory. If you introduce the dogs in one of their homes or familiar environment, that dog may become aggressive as it tries to protect its space. Once in a neutral territory, let the dogs figure out their own relationship (unless there are serious aggression issues).

Now one is ready to go out and teach their dog the right way to behave. That crazy monster can be transformed into a calm animal that won’t slobber all over one’s guests. With the proper information learned an individual can correct their pet dog’s wild behavior with the right behavior.
