Efficient And Effective Ways To Train Your Dog
Your dog is your family and it’s okay to be stuck on figuring out friendly methods of training him or her. This article will help you train your dog properly while having fun with your pet. Knowledge is vital to the success of training your dog.
Keep your dog well exercised and active. Dogs can easily get bored. A bored dog will try and find something interesting to do, and training is not usually interesting. It is easier for your dog to focus if he is happy and well exercised. Go for long walks and runs with your dog.
If you house train your puppy, keep in mind that everything that goes in is eventually coming back out. You can promote consistency and regularity by feeding your pet on a firm schedule two or three times daily with only the highest quality of food. This will get your dog into a solid routine for bathroom breaks.
When trying to train your dog, avoid accidentally reinforcing negative behaviors. Don’t give your dog any attention or treats when he is being bad. For example, don’t rub your dog’s head when they jump up at you and when you come in the door if you don’t want them to jump.
It is very easy to teach a pooch to roll over as long as you have some tasty treats on hand. Begin by getting the dog to lay down. Then, hold the treat over your dog’s head and swipe it above and around his head, causing him to roll over. He should then roll over while following the treat. As he rolls, state the command “roll over” in a firm tone. Repeat the process until your dog associates the command with the action. Never become frustrated if it does not happen right away. Once he does learn how, he will be a celebrity among other dogs.
You should now feel a little more competent and comfortable in your role as a dog trainer. By following the tips in this piece, you will improve as a trainer and a listener who is able to understand what the dog really needs. Simple advice could really be helpful.
