Preventing Unwanted Urination A Dog Training Basic

As a new dog owner, you may be overwhelmed with the amount of work it takes to make sure your dog is both healthy and well behaved. This article will go into detail regarding tips specific to your situation, a new dog owner, and ways that you can successfully train your dog.

Be consistent when training your dog. Always give commands using the same words, in the same tone of voice. Realize that your dog will not learn commands instantly. You have to show him what you want. For example, if you want him to learn to turn left and right on command when walking, you must say, “left” or “right” each time you make a turn. Eventually, your dog will get you drift!

Teach your puppy to ring a bell with his paw or nose when he needs to go outside and go to the restroom. Show your dog how to ring the bell before you take it outside. Or have him ring the bell and give it a treat. If you do this every time, you dog will always be able to tell you when it needs to go outside.

You should only leave your dog’s food out for around fifteen minutes each day after you put it out. This helps get your dog used to a regular routine. Your dog will quickly learn to begin eating his or her food immediately, and as a result, your dog will eat fresher food and not beg for food at other times of the day.

Before your dog can learn a new command it will take several repetitions. It is not uncommon for it to take between 25 to 50 repetitions of the same command for your dog to learn it. Continue trying the same command and be patient, your dog will get it.

Exercise is an important element of training a dog. A dog that does not have enough exercise will have greater amounts of energy. This energy can come out as chewing on things, playing with people, running around the house, or other unwanted activities. Exercise will help one have a manageable dog to work with.

Dogs mimic their owner’s behavior. Don’t be shocked if they decide they want to sleep in your bed and sit in your recliner. Don’t be shocked if they attempt to eat from your plate. Most of all, don’t be angry. Your dog has to be trained that this behavior is unacceptable. They need to be taught the acceptable options.

When your dog is acting like a brat, cut off attention immediately. This is hard to do for some people, and encompasses more than you likely think it does. This includes foregoing nudging the dog away when he is playfully mouthing and even avoiding instructing or even looking at a dog that is demanding attention. Any attention at all may encourage your dog to keep up the bratty behavior! Reward him once he calms down instead.

Because you are a new dog owner, you are faced with many challenges. Hopefully if you follow the steps presented in this article, you will be much closer to being able to successfully train your new dog and will have a better understanding of what goes into dog ownership and training.
