Do you feel frustrated and stressed-out by your dog’s behavior? If so, your pet might need more training. Putting extra time into training your dog could help you to have a very obedient pet. Read this article for valuable advice on how to train your dog.
Crates should feel like a safe place to puppies. So, you should never use them as a way to discipline your dog. Dogs may need to be familiarized with the crate to feel comfortable and secure in it. There are many tricks that you can try to make it easier for both of you. Many dogs are intimidated by the crate. To cure this, place something they enjoy in it and shut the door. Your dog will want the bone and will be unable to resist entering the crate. When they go inside to get the bone, give them lots of positive reinforcement.
Do not tether two dogs close to each other. The restraints for each dog can become tangled and in an effort to free themselves, they can be injured. If dogs get tangled up too severely, one can get wrapped up so badly it could close off the airway, and he could die.
The first step of training your pooch should be to assert your control. Your dog must understand that you’re in control, so that he knows to obey and respect you. When you walk your dog, walk in front of him to establish leadership.
You can train a pooch to roll over fairly quickly if you have some treats to hand out. You can have your dog sit or roll over. Next, hold a treat near the floor on one side of his head, slowly bring the treat up and over the dogs head to the other side. His nose will track that treat and his body will roll over. As he rolls over say out loud, “roll over.” Repeat this until he rolls over with the command alone. It will take some work, but keep on trying!
Begin training your dog with a task that will be simple for him to learn. You will both get instant gratification and establish a good foundation which you and your dog can build on. Using this method as you train produces better results.
If your dog jumps up, quickly bring your knee up to encounter his chest and say OFF! This will not hurt if done lightly, but it will be an uncomfortable feeling. They should learn to stop jumping because they don’t like the reaction they get.
Make training with your dog fun. You can build a strong bond with dog by playing with the dog, and that in turn causes positive reactions during training. Training can be pretty fun, but make sure you get plenty of non-training play in too.
If you invest the time in proper dog training, you will enjoy your pet’s company. It may seem like your dog is destined to always misbehave, but by remaining dedicated, it is possible to achieve real results. Try to keep these things on your mind when you are going to be training your dog.
