A lot of people who have pets find that they love them as much as some family members! However, training your puppy can require a lot of hard work. There is a lot of training that needs to take place. Thankfully, this article should provide you with a ton of training advice you can use starting today.
When you correct your dog verbally, try making those corrections short and straight to the point. It’s not good to rant about how bad your dog is. Simply address the issue and move on. Remember that your voice’s volume gets their attention and that you are talking business.
Teaching dogs to roll over can be easy, provided some treats are on hand. Start by getting the dog to lay down. Hold a treat between your forefingers near the left side of your dog’s head, and then slowly pass the treat in front of his face and to the opposite side. He will probably follow the treat, rolling side to side as it moves. As he rolls over say out loud, “roll over.” Repeat this until he rolls over with the command alone. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it’s a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.
As training progresses, dogs can be given more freedom because they are more reliable. By having obedience along with freedom, your dog will have a happy life. Like most things, too much freedom can be counterproductive, so exercise caution with certain liberties.
Keep your voice firm and level when delivering commands to your dog. The dog will know you’re telling them what to do that way. It also helps the dog to understand the difference between a sharp tone for discipline and a sharp but non-punishing command.
Make sure food and outside time are scheduled to help break your dog into being an inside dog. Then you will be aware when your dog needs to go outside to use the bathroom. A schedule will train your dog to know when he will get to go out next.
Don’t spend too long on a single training your dog session. If you try to focus for a long period of time on one command, your dog will show signs of boredom and begin to get antsy. Do not spend more than 10 minutes on each session.
Puppy power! You’re ready to start training today. You need to have a lot of patience and give your dog a treat if they do well. The tips mentioned will take some time to master, but eventually you will get there.
