Make sure you walk your dog and do not let your dog walk you! This article contains the critical knowledge you need for training your dog.
A healthy diet is important to the health and well-being of your dog. A bad diet is unhealthy for dogs for many reasons. A poor diet can affect their behavior as well as their health. Providing a dog with fresh water and a high protein diet can have an astounding affect on their health and attitude.
Ensure that your dog gets enough activity. Don’t let your dog sit around with nothing to do. They won’t get any exercise that way and if they’re too bored, they might sniff around and get into some trouble. A bored dog will try and find something interesting to do, and training is not usually interesting. You will find that your dog will pay more attention to you when it is exercised and happy. Go for long walks and runs with your dog.
Consistency is critical for crate training to succeed. When you let the puppy out of his crate you must immediately and unfailingly allow him the opportunity to relieve himself. Your puppy will eventually become able to relieve itself less frequently.
Always buy a crate that is the correct size for your dog so you can train them well. Puppies grow up quickly. You need a crate that can still fit the puppy once it becomes a dog. Dogs need room to move about and lie down, and they should not be cramped.
Don’t approach a strange dog too quickly. Hold our your hand and slowly move closer. This lets the dog get accustomed to your smell and he will be more trusting towards you. When a dog recognizes the scent, they won’t fear you and will follow commands.
Without good canine training knowledge, you’ll have a difficult time getting your dog to behave. Now that you are done reading this article you can make them a member of the family.
