A dog is very similar to a television remote that must be properly programmed to work well with a television. The capability is already available in the remote, but without intervention, it is useless. Dogs already have in them the innate intelligence to be trained, but need the help of their owner.
Rewarding dogs properly and generously is important when it comes to training them. Giving your dog treats at the proper time and in the proper amount is important. This is because dogs tend not always understand what it’s being rewarded for if they do not get it at the right time.
Make sure you use control to reward your dog.When your dog does commands correctly, try to keep them calm as you give them their reward. Though you may be happy with the accomplishment, excitement may lead to your pet having diminished control over the situation.
Repetition is the key to teaching your dog a new commands. You might have to repeat the same command lesson from 25 to 30 times before your dog remembers it.
The rule of thumb with puppies and house training is to remember: what is eaten will eventually come out the other end. Feed your puppy three times a day. This will get your puppy out and lessen the chance of accidents.
Keep in mind that they get bigger. Choose a crate that works both for the adult dog you will eventually have. The ideal size would be one that doesn’t make your dog will need sufficient room to rest and turn around and lie down without being crowded.
You need to be very consistent with your dog. If multiple family members are involved in a pet’s training, you need to make sure all the members of your household are using the same rewards and commands. Your puppy will learn quickly if you only use a few different words and always expect from his behavior.
One trick to remember when training your pet is to introduce it to social environments frequently. Your dog must learn how to behave when it is around other dogs as well as humans. This also helps to avoid hyper-activity in new environments as well.
Your dog must learn what ‘down’ means.This is an important command will be useful if you need to keep your dog to know in social settings. A dog that understands the “down” command can lower to the ground immediately in a risky situation, making it a great command to keep on hand for safety’s sake.
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, and a happy owner is one with an obedient dog.
