People of all ages love the companionship of a pet, and dogs are by far one of the most popular choices. Young puppies are infamous for being destructive and mischievous. Use the advice in this article, and train your dog properly.
Timing is crucial when you train a dog, so you need to spend an adequate amount of time training them, but not too much. Gradually increase the amount of time you spend training them each session. Note how far into the training session your dog loses his attention span. That’s the time to quit.
Make sure you remain controlled when rewarding your dog. When your dog does commands correctly, they get a treat. You may feel great about it, but you don’t want to make the pup feel over-excited. Stay calm and expect the same from your puppy.
Consistency is of the utmost importance when it comes to crate training. Always give the pup the option to go to the bathroom after leaving his crate. As you continue this training, your pet will begin to wait until he gets to the appropriate location to relieve himself.
It is best to train your pet without unintentionally affirming his undesirable behaviors and mistakes. Do not pay attention to your dog or pet it if he does something you are not happy about. For instance, do not rub its head when it comes and jumps at you when you get home when you do not want your dog to do this.
Let your dog have more freedom as he or she starts to behave and listen to commands more. The balance between freedom and obedience will give your dog a satisfying life. Make sure you do not provide excessive freedom right away, or backsliding may occur.
When you are training a pet you need to speak to them in a even and stern tone. Your tone conveys seriousness to the dog and the fact that they must obey you. Additionally, it distances discipline commands from normal commands.
Having a well-kept home and owning a dog doesn’t have to be a ‘one or the other’ scenario. Well trained dogs will never be destructive in your house, so get on it. If you remember to use the advice from this article, you will be able to coexist peacefully with man’s best friend.
