New Puppy Dog?
Inviting a dog into your life can be one of the most wonderful and fulfilling things you do with your life. You will help your dog by giving him the love and attention that he needs, while providing you with a great companion to share your life with. These training tips were written to help you build a happy life with your new friend.
Effective Puppy Dog Training
Use appropriate rewards and punishments when training your dog. For example, many dogs respond favorably when rewarded with a favorite treat for good behavior. At the same time, be aware that excessive punishment can backfire. Instead, use a consistent tone of voice or command word to indicate to your dog when a behavior is unacceptable.
Crate training your indoor puppy or dog
If you are working on crate training your indoor puppy or dog, you can always try a few tricks. If they are hesitant about the crate, you can put a nice chew bone inside and shut the gate while they are not in it. They will see and smell the bone and will want you to let them in there to get it. Once they go in the crate, praise them so that they know they did well.
To teach your dog not to chew inappropriately, be sure to provide him with plenty of appropriate things to chew. Make sure they are dog toys, not cast off human belongings. Whenever your dog begins to chew inappropriately, redirect him by giving him one of his own toys and take away the inappropriate item.
Never allow your dog to lead when taking walks. When your dog is in front of you she feels dominant and in control. Keep the dog a half step behind you and maintain this distance in front. Your dog will see you as leading the pack and defer to your commands much easier.
One of the easiest ways for you to begin to train your dog(s) is to research the types of training classes available in your area. Consider checking out the classes and the venues before committing to one so that you can make sure both you and your pet feel comfortable before beginning the training process.
Keep some of your dog’s favorite treats with you when you are training him to obey a new command. Dogs thrive on positive reinforcement. When you have his treat on hand, you can reward him as soon as he successfully obeys this new command. Before long, he will be able to respond to this command efficiently.
With all the information you just learned you should now have a better idea of how you’re going to maintain a properly clean home by training your dog. You should be forming strategies that you can apply in your household towards your dog and applying those strategies on a daily basis, if you do that then you should have a well trained dog before you know it.
