Most dogs need some sort of training. Use the following advice and you will end up with a joyful, well behaved dog.
Generous rewards are a key part of training. If you give your dog some treats at the proper time, they will respond to training. Your dog does not know why they are getting the reward unless you do it right after the positive behavior.
Consistency is the key to puppy crate training. When you let the puppy out of his crate you must immediately and unfailingly allow him the opportunity to relieve himself. When done with consistency, your dog will trust you and wait for the right time to relieve himself.
You should pick a phrase to say to your puppy while he is being house trained. Whenever the dog is taken out, use the term you have chosen to refer to the process of relieving him or herself, and the pet will make a mental link between going outside and doing just that.
When giving commands to your body, your tone and volume level should remain the same. They will know this tone of your voice and associate it with being in trouble. In time, your dog will understand what you want regardless of which words you use.
Try to get your dog’s attention when you are training him or her. Start commands by using his name. Use your dog’s name to get his or her attention. Once you do this, tell your dog your command. Dogs will hear there name and pay attention.
Training is a lifetime endeavor. You do not have to stop training them as a puppy. By reinforcing their behavior, you can ensure you dog will continue to obey. Also, by disciplining negative behaviors you can ensure your dog will be well behaved.
Do not give up, even if your pet is currently running wild in your home. Most dogs can be trained with a proper technique and a little perseverance. Make use of the tips you just read to minimize the hardship involved in training your dog while maximizing the results at the same time.
