You and your puppy will be so much happier if it is fully trained. If your dog is trained well, then you should both know what is to be expected of the other. With a trained dog, you won’t worry when you’re together in public, you have visitors or he is home without you. It will not always be easy to train your dog. It takes a lot of time and effort to properly train a dog.
The key to successful crate training with a new canine is making sure they understand that it is their home. When meal time comes, place the food bowl in the crate and keep the door open while the dog eats. The crate will then become associated with the food they love.
Verbal corrections must be sharp and direct. Avoid launching a lengthy tirade against your pet and his naughty behavior. Say NO and redirect your dog to the desired behavior. You should also be certain that your voice is loud enough to get their attention, but also conveys seriousness.
Stay consistent when it comes to feeding your dog. Develop a feeding schedule, and be consistent with the routines so you can teach your dog what to expect and how to behave. Your dog will learn to eat in a few minutes instead of going back to the food bowl all day long.
Use control to acknowledge positive behavior while training. When your dog obeys your command, try to keep them calm as you give them their reward. If you get excited, the dog will become excited and everything will be out of control. You should stay calm and then give the reward.
Most of all, training a dog lays out the dog/owner relationship rules. You enjoy each other much more once those guidelines are outlined. Keep in mind that you must continually reinforce your dog’s training lessons. Always keep a close eye out and do not hesitate to enforce proper punishment on any violations of the designated rules. When your dog has a solid foundation in the basics, his potential is unlimited.
