How To Get A Well Behaved Dog

Dogs are some of the most popular pets! It is common for young animals, such as puppies, to be over-curious and to inadvertently cause damage while they explore their surroundings. Use the advice in this article, and train your dog properly.

Proper and generous rewards are critical to dog training. It is important that you provide the right amount of treats at the correct times. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.

Before your dog can learn a new command it will take several repetitions. You might have to keep repeating something to a dog as much as fifty times for it to ‘click’. Keep teaching it and be patient. The dog will learn in time.

Right at the moment they do the behavior you are trying to reinforce, give the verbal command of approval. Words like “yes” could be an effective way of communicating to your dog that he has done something you are pleased about.

Treats are necessary when teaching a dog fancy tricks like rolling over. The first step is to get the dog to lay down. Then hold one treat near his head and near the floor. Pull the treat over the dog until your hand is on the other side. Your dog is probably going to follow the treat in your hand with his nose, which means he will rollover his whole body. When they roll over, yell “roll over.” Keep doing this until they do it just with the command. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it’s a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.

Having a dog and keeping your house in good shape should not be mutually exclusive. Maintaining a presentable home can be difficult if you own a dog that is rambunctious or destructive, but these things can easily be rectified with the proper training. Use the advice in this article for a peaceful coexistence with your dog.
