The Do’s And Don’ts With Dog Training

Without proper training and obedience lessons, man’s best friend can become man’s worst enemy. Aggressive behavior, hyperactivity and chewing, are only a few of the common problems that people experience with puppies and even, middle-aged dogs. This selection of useful dog training technique can help you to work with your dog to build a better relationship.

Do some research on your dog’s breed before planning a training regimen. Some breeds respond differently to training methods, so learning about a specific breed can help both of you be successful during the training process. For example, some breeds respond better when training is mixed with herding activities. Other breeds are more receptive to acrobatic training.

One of the most important things to remember when training your dog is that it is a lifelong process. Many owners think that once their pet has the basics down, the training process is over. Dogs, much like people, learn throughout their lives, and consistent training will help them to be well-behaved and friendly.

One of the most important commands a dog can learn is the recall. When you call your dog to come to you, he should do so immediately. Make sure when you’re teaching him, that you do it at home and also out around distractions because you want him to respond in all situations. Always call him to you with a happy voice tone and never call your dog to come to you when he is in trouble; this could make him leery to come to you when you call him.

When training your dog it is important that you are positive and upbeat. You should always focus on rewarding your dog for what he has done right, rahter than punishing him for what he has done wrong. Punishing your dog is not the best way to train your dog. The only thing that punishment and cruelty does is teach your dog to be afraid of you.

If you are traveling with dogs, make sure to pack everything that your dog needs to eat, sleep and use the bathroom. Items like water and food bowls, paper towels and bathroom bags are essential to having a relaxing ride. Do not worry about taking a bag of their dog food with you; it is much easier to pick some up when you get to your destination.

Reinforce desirable behavior from your dog. Don’t just rely on treats though. You can reinforce these behaviors through positive attention as well. Petting your dog and talking to him in cheerful tones can be a good incentive too. So can a new squeaky toy or a trip to the park.

A great way to potty-train your puppy is to crate-train it. A dog won’t potty where it sleeps, so keep the puppy in his crate and let him out for a potty break at regular intervals and he will go. Eventually, your pup will learn that bathroom time is outdoor time. This type of training also prevents a lot of accidents.

Rather than waiting another minute for your dog to soil the carpet, chew up your furniture and shoes or make a fool of itself at the local dog park, get started with a training program by using any of these simple, effective and proven tips and tricks, for teaching your dog.
