Good Ideas To Get The Most From Your Dog Training
Most dog owners need to spend a lot of time reinforcing positive behaviors in their dog and getting rid of bad behaviors such as chewing or barking. Apply this advice to ensure that your dog is well-behaved and happy.
There are many different approaches that can be used to crate train a new puppy. If your puppy seems reluctant about entering the crate, place a chew toy inside and close the door to the kennel. A tempting bone will prove too hard to resist, and the dog will be panting to get into the crate in no time. After they enter the crate, be sure to give them love and attention to let them know they did something to please you.
Question how your dog views things. You can easily become frustrated with your pet if they do not learn the basics quickly or not at all. Instead of completely giving up, consider looking at it from their perspective. Try to see the world through their eyes.
You must repeat all new commands. You might have to keep repeating something to a dog as much as fifty times for it to ‘click’. Use the command over and over again until the dog gets the hint.
Avoid training devices which are high end such as shock collars. They might not work like they say they do and they cost too much. Plus, using shock collars could discourage your dog in having good behavior. In general, using such techniques produces negative effects.
Dogs need an hour or more of exercise each day, aside from their potty breaks. If they are well-exercised, then you will have more efficient training. If your pet can exercise regularly and be active, he will be far more happy and responsive.
Even if you have a particularly disobedient dog, have no fear. Almost any dog can be trained if the proper techniques are used. Use the tips you’ve learned here to minimize the anxiety and maximize your results.
