If you have a dog, you know that it can be hard to keep your home clean if the dog isn’t properly trained. However, many people have no clue about the proper training methods; that is why you need to learn whatever you can so your dog can be properly trained. Tips like the ones in this article should help you do that.
Use consistency when you are crate training your young puppy. When your puppy gets out of its crate, you need to give it the occasion to relieve itself right away. This will teach your dog that he can wait until he gets out of the crate to relieve himself.
It takes many repetitions before a dog is able to learn new commands. You might have to keep repeating something to a dog as much as fifty times for it to ‘click’. Be patient and say the same command in the same way each time. Your dog will learn eventually.
Your dog must realize that you are the leader of the pack. Your dog must see you as a leader, or they will not follow your commands. Always walk in front, in the leadership position, letting your dog follow behind.
Don’t overdo your training sessions, keep them brief and interesting for best results. If you spend a lot of time on only one thing, your dog can get bored and frustrated. Keep first training lessons to 10 minutes or less.
Whenever your dog jumps onto you, grab their paw and gentle squeeze to make sure they understand that jumping is not good behavior. Do something that makes them uncomfortable so that they can associate their action with something negative. In time, they will cease jumping on humans, as they will have the negative association with the squeezing.
After reading all this advice, you should have an idea on how you can approach training your dog and keeping your home clean. You will have a dog that is trained well once you use simple strategies on a regular basis.
