Tips To Train Your Dog And Have A Great Pet.
Way to go! What happens next? Good training will leave you and your pooch feeling happier. Read these tips to find out how you can train your dog efficiently.
Gradual increments are easiest on your dog when going through crate training. As soon as they start to feel comfortable in the crate when the door is open, try closing the gate and have them eat inside. Keep them in the crate for a small duration and slowly increase that duration. If the dog becomes agitated, slow down a little more to make them more comfortable.
Commands and corrections should be short and straight to the point. Don’t rant on and on about how bad your dog is. Say NO and redirect your dog to the desired behavior. It is also important to have good volume to your commands so that your dog understands that you are serious.
Do not tie up your dogs too closely. If there chains become entangled with one another it could lead to an injury. In the worst case, a large dog might be able to strangle or crush a smaller one, entirely by accident, while trying to free itself.
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. Using shock collars can actually end up having a negative impact on your training. In general, using such techniques produces negative effects.
Your dog must learn that there is no need for it to respond to your utterance of the word ‘no.’ Training must be a positive experience for your dog. Telling them “no” does not help them know how to react to you. Because no two dogs are the same, the training you use should work with their needs.
A properly trained dog is proud and content and his owner is usually quite pleased as well. Once you start incorporating the tips you’ve seen here, you will both be headed for happier times.
