Dog training can be frustrating for any dog owner, but certain dogs need a lot more attention than others. If you have a problem dog, this article is for you. In this article, we will provide the best tips for training a dog that is seemingly resistant to any training that you attempt.
Small steps, gentle ways and patience are all a part of getting your puppy used to their crate. Eventually they will become comfortable with the crate and you can then try to shut the door to the crate. When they allow the door to shut you can give them a treat through the wiring. In the beginning it is important to only leave the dog in the crate for a few seconds. After a while you will be able to leave them in the crate for longer amounts of time. If the dog becomes agitated, slow down a little more to make them more comfortable.
When you are working on commands with your dog, work only on one command at a time, and only say the command one time. Do not say the command word more than once. Your goal is for your dog to obey the command immediately. You don’t want to have to say the same thing over and over.
When you are first starting out in training your dog, try to schedule the training sessions to take place at about the same time every day. If you are making the training sessions a positive experience and doing them on a schedule, your dog will start to look forward to the sessions and enjoy them more.
The key to potty training a new puppy is consistency. Remember that when he is with his mother, he can relieve himself whenever he needs to, so it will take some time for him to learn that he must wait for someone to take him outside to go to the bathroom.
Accidents must be avoided during potty training. Learn the signs that your dog needs to use the restroom. He could be snuffing, pacing or even whining. The moment your pet begins to do any of these things, don’t waste a single moment. Grab his leash and bring him to the spot where he uses the bathroom. Give him praise for proper toilet behavior. He’ll want to go out and do the right thing soon enough.
Keep training sessions with your puppy short. Your puppy has a very short attention span, so start out with short sessions, and try to keep things enjoyable for both you and your pup. When you put too much training on the animal at one time, it can stress the animal and work against what you are trying to accomplish. So keep it short, intense, and create a great bonding and training routine for your new puppy.

As long as you follow the steps provided, you should see at least, signs of success. Keep in mind that every dog and every owner, needs to find what works best for them.
