You thought you were bringing home Lassie from the pound, but you could have ended up with a bad one. There is good news – you can train your dog.
Make sure your dog stays awake and active. Dogs can easily get bored very easily. A bored dog without interest in what you’re doing is more difficult to train. Your dog will obey more quickly if you keep them well exercised. Go for long walks or runs with your dog.
Dogs have to learn to break his attention. If you keep up with his training, it will help his behavior.
Repetition is the key to teaching your dog new commands. It can take as many as 50 repetitions of one command to be used for the dog to understand it.
This lets them know you are serious and that they must obey. It also help the dog realize the distinction between a sharp tone for discipline and a sharp but non-punishing command.
Make sure that both you and your dog fun. Taking some time to have fun with your dog makes your dog like you more, and your dog will be more likely to respond well to training. Training is fun for the dog, but make sure you get plenty of non-training play in too.
Using different tones for different training purposes is a great way to train a dog. Be firm at all times, speak louder to reprimand your dog and take a softer voice to praise your dog.
Even though it may not be easy, you must consistently show patience and care. Your dog isn’t fluent in English and he is not a person. Your dog gets cues from your body and tones while not understand why you are speaking in. Remain calm and take several breaks if you’re getting frustrated during the training sessions.
You can ensure that your dog stays up-to-date with what you’ve previously taught it. Test what he knows by giving commands, even though both of you know that he remembers his commands.
You have to make the dog to be scared to come when called or to think you’re mad every time you use its name.
Stop your pup from chewing on something inappropriate immediately if you catch him in the act.
Learn your dog’s signals. Most dogs do the same things when they have to go. By taking the time to learn this, you can immediately take your dog to his potty area to train him where to go to the bathroom. Being in sync with the natural tendencies of your dog will help make training much easier for both of you.
Most owners are amazed at how easy it is to incorporate basic training your dog into their life and how quickly they start to notice results. Try out these tips if you are having problems with your dog.
