A new puppy brings delight into your family. His rambunctious antics and affectionate responses have everyone giggling with happiness. Surely, his loyalty and affection will be a part of your family for many years to come. But this depends on the training which you are just now beginning. Here are some tips to help you complete this training successfully.
Do not tie a couple of dogs closely together. Doing so could cause injuries to the dogs if they become entangled in the chains and attempt to free themselves. For example, a large dog could tangle the chain with a smaller dog, wrapping the chain around the neck of the small dog, causing it to die.
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.
Make sure to only say the command word one time while training your dog. It is important not to repeat yourself, because your pet will begin to expect you to say the instructions multiple times. You want your dog to respond to your commands as soon as you say them.
Try to schedule each training session at roughly the same time each day. You want your dog to get into a pattern where he know’s it’s coming and is excited for it. If your dog is excited for it he’s much more likely to succeed, just as if humans are excited for something they’re more likely to succeed.
To make your dog understand what you are expecting from it, you should reward it when it behaves well. Pet it when it obeys you, and use a soothing voice. You can even feed your dog a treat if it did something remarkably well. Make sure your dog understands why you are pleased.
To train a dog careful thought is required by the owner. Before beginning to train a dog one should plan out what their command words are going to be to be the most effective. Words that are not commonly used will help them stick out for the dog. If one knows another language that can also offer more words and sounds to use in training the dog.
When training your dog it is important that you are positive and upbeat. You should always focus on rewarding your dog for what he has done right, rahter than punishing him for what he has done wrong. Punishing your dog is not the best way to train your dog. The only thing that punishment and cruelty does is teach your dog to be afraid of you.
With these tips, you are ready to proceed confidently with your puppy’s training. Consistency and attentiveness will win out over his unbridled impulsiveness. You want your pet to fit into your family life and become a faithful friend for many years. Following these training tips can pay off with just that result.
