Congratulations on being a new dog owner. Okay, but now what? Training your dog is beneficial to both you and your pet. The following tips will tell you the inside scoop on how to get your pup trained properly.
If you have to give your dog a verbal correction, be sure that they are sharp, to the point, and short. Don’t berate your dog with a lengthy speech. Simply tell them no an instead steer them towards what you’d like them to do. Also speak with authority so they understand you mean business.
The space you share with your pet should be calm and relaxed. It is great to have playtime with your pet, but your dog should stay calm when you come into the room. Do not acknowledge the animal when you enter and by doing so, you create a controlled atmosphere in which you decide how and when play time begins.
When house-breaking your puppy, choose a specific phrase to use when it’s time to go outdoors. When it’s time for him to go outside to do his business, say “Elimination Device…Activate!” or whatever phrase you chose to call his attention to the task at hand.
Dog’s deserve more freedom as their training progresses. Your dog will flourish with a good balance between control and respect. Try to remember that you shouldn’t provide a lot freedom at one time, as it could regress the training that you’ve been doing.
Keep your tone of voice consistent when training dogs. Your tone will indicate that you’re serious and to be respected. In time, your dog will understand what you want regardless of which words you use.
Well-trained dogs know what to expect and are generally happier. With the use of these tips, you are well on your way to a successful puppy training relationship.
