The reason why so many dogs are in shelters is because it doesn’t work out well with the owner. However, this does not have to be. Any dog can be trained to become well-behaved, healthy and happy. If you can spend some time and follow instructions, you can easily train your dog.
When you verbally correct your dog, do it quickly and concisely. Avoid going on a rant about the dog’s “badness”. Just say no and direct them on what it is you desire for them to do. Also speak with authority so they understand you mean business.
Reinforce calm behavior upon your arrival. Your pet needs play time (and you might too), but your pet needs to be calm when you step into rooms most of the time. Don’t acknowledge your dog until you decide. This will establish a controlled atmosphere.
Monitor your own behavior to ensure you aren’t reinforcing your dog’s negative behaviors by mistake. Don’t ever reward a dog that is behaving badly. For instance, it will be difficult or impossible to train your dog not to jump on people if you give your pet a friendly neck-scratch when he or she jumps on you.
Your dog must respect you in order for training to work. You have to show your dog that you are in control or he will not obey or respect you. Your dog should not walk ahead of you, because that indicates a position of leadership.
Make training for your dog a regular, repeated part of your time together to keep them familiar with the rules they’ve learned. Pet owners often believe that once their dog completes a training program, the process is over. Pets, just like humans, need to be reminded of the rules now and then. Your dog must follow the rule system strictly.
Teaching a dog how to roll over isn’t too hard with a few treats in your hand. First, make sure the dog is in a laying position. Next, hold the treat close to the floor on one side of the dog’s head, and slowly bringing it upwards and over to the dog’s other side. He will naturally use his nose to follow the treat, thus rolling over his whole body. While he rolls, say “roll over” and repeat this action until he is able to roll over with only the command. Be patient with him when you are teaching this because once he learns it, he can be quite the show-off amongst your friends.
Don’t bother with shock collars. These things rarely work as promised, and they’re usually much more expensive compared to the traditional training methods. These devices can stifle your dog’s natural reactions and have negative effects on even good or acceptable behaviors. These methods of training generally fail.
Avoid accidents when toilet training your puppy. Pay attention to the cues your dog displays to indicate that he needs to be outside. Pacing back and forth, snuffing and whining are some common signs. When this happens, take action immediately. Take your dog outside and escort him to his favorite spot. Reward the dog for using the bathroom outdoors. In time, the dog will ask when he wants to go outside.
You can have a dog who is obedient, healthy and happy. Training your pet, offering him plenty of love and attention, and being mindful of your dog’s needs are key. Embracing the ideas presented here will lead to you owning a pet that you will always be proud of.
