While you love the dog, you love your home, too. Unfortunately, your dog does not value your belongings as you do, and anything that looks chew-able will be chewed on. The following article will offer many proven techniques to help train your dog effectively.
Keep your dog active. Dogs can get bored easily. Conditions of boredom are not conducive to training. If your dog is fit and content, he will be much more likely to heed your instructions. Go for long walks and runs with your dog.
Be patient when teaching your dog, it will take some time. It isn’t uncommon for 25-50 repetitions of this same command to be used for the dog to understand it. Keep trying, your dog will pick it up.
Don’t reinforce your dog’s negative behavior by accident. Don’t give praise or treats to your dog if it does something wrong. For instance, do not pet the dog lovingly if it jumps on you the minute you arrive home if this is something you are attempting to cure.
It is very easy to teach a pooch to roll over as long as you have some tasty treats on hand. First, make your dog lay down. Then hold one treat near his head and near the floor. Pull the treat over the dog until your hand is on the other side. They should follow that treat with their nose, which should cause them to roll over. When they roll over, yell “roll over.” Keep doing this until they do it just with the command. Be patient with him when you are teaching this because once he learns it, he can be quite the show-off amongst your friends.
When training dogs, use a similar tone and volume when you give commands. Your dog will learn to recognize your tone and know they should obey. It also helps the dog to understand the difference between a sharp tone for discipline and a sharp but non-punishing command.
Finally, you have to stop the dog from using all of your things as chewtoys. This not only keeps your dog safe, but saves you money on vet bills. With the tips found here, you should be ready to stop this behavior.
