When thinking about dog training, think of your dog as a remote that has to be programmed in order for it to work properly. Though the remote has the capability to function, someone needs to tweak it to coincide with the television. Dogs are inborn to learn training, but need the help of their owner.
When you are house training your puppy, remember, what goes in, must come out. To ensure that your dog’s bowel movements remain regular, feed him or her some high-quality food a minimum of twice per day during the same times daily. You can then schedule your walks at the right times to prevent unwanted accidents.
Your dog must realize that you are the leader of the pack. Your dog will neither obey nor respect you if he believes he is the leader of your household. Avoid allowing your dog to lead you during walks. Instead, walk in front of your dog to show that you are the leader of this pack.
Be patient when training a dog. This will cause you not to be frustrated and angry with your dog during this process. Your dog will do its best, but give your dog enough time to remember orders. You need to remember that your puppy needs to form the association between the word and the behavior you expect.
You need to make certain your dog is having fun each day during training sessions. Playing with your dog helps build a stronger bond between dog and human, which encourages the dog to respond positively during training. Having fun with your dog during training is one thing, but playing and having fun with your dog outside of training is also necessary.
Reduce as many accidents as possible when you’re toilet training your dog. Watch for signals that your dog has to go out to relieve himself. Pacing and whining are common signs. If you see your dog doing this, let it out! Immediately take your dog outside to the official restroom spot. Whenever your dog uses the restroom outside, reward him or her with lots of praise. The dog will eventually give you a sign when he needs to go out.
Once someone knows what to do to get their dog to learn obedience, they just need to put these methods to use. Dogs love to make their owners happy, so training them is actually enjoyable for them as well.
