The Polite Pooch: Dog Training Ideas You Don’t Want To Miss
Training your dog is part of responsible ownership. Whether it’s basic obedience or advanced training, dogs must be socialized and taught how to be good canine citizens. Training is also necessary to keeping your dog happy and safe. You can work with your dog on your own, or get the help of a trainer. Here are some helpful ideas to get you going.
Commands and corrections should be short and straight to the point. Avoid going on a rant about the dog’s “badness”. Firmly say no and redirect them. Pitch your voice in such a way that your dog will recognize your vocalizations as commands.
When your dog behaves well in a training session, reward him in a calm manner. If your dog follows a training command properly, then it is acceptable to reward the behavior to a calm animal. Though you might be satisfied with this type of accomplishment, excitement may lead to your pet having diminished control over the situation. Remain calm, expect them to be calm, and then award them when appropriate.
Stay very consistent and persistent when starting your crate training regimen. When your puppy gets out of its crate, you need to give it the occasion to relieve itself right away. Eventually, they will wait until it’s the right time to go to the bathroom.
Repetition is the key to success when teaching a dog a new command. It isn’t unusual to have to repeat a trick dozens of times before the dog understands. Keep teaching it and be patient. The dog will learn in time.
Use these tips to help you to train the kind of dog you want to share your life with and share with others. Having a well-trained, obedient dog eases stress. Training can be done yourself, or you may want to enlist the help of a professional; either way, proper training will bring you many rewarding years with your pet.
