Tips And Tricks To Boost Your Dog Training Program
Don’t run out and adopt a dog if you haven’t given it much thought. Dog ownership requires real commitment and dedication. The training needed ensures they’re obedient. If you decide to adopt a puppy or dog, use the tips in this article to get a good start.
You can try a little bit of ingenuity if you are going with crate training for your indoor dog or puppy. Place a treat inside the crate and shut its gate in front of your dog. They will want to get to the bone, which means going into the crate. After they have entered the crate, be sure to give them praise so they understand that they have done a good thing.
Correct your dog verbally with short, sharp statements. Don’t drag on and rant how your dog is bad. Say no and let them know what you would rather have them do. Use a tone which is obviously one of consternation.
It is a simple task to teach a dog how to roll over, just be sure to keep some dog treats handy! First, place your dog in the “down” position. Then, hold the treat over your dog’s head and swipe it above and around his head, causing him to roll over. He will probably follow the treat, rolling side to side as it moves. As he is rolling over, give the “roll over” command, and do this repeatedly until he can roll over with just the command and without the treat. Be patient if they don’t get it right away; they’ll get it soon enough!
Even if you have had your dog for an extended period of time and they have not been properly trained, you can use the information that has been provided to properly train them. Start your training as soon as possible so as to avoid any accidents when the dog doesn’t know any better.
