Congratulations! So, what are you going to do next? You and your new dog will both be happier if he is well trained. The following tips will tell you what you need to know for effectively training your pooch.
You can use a few tricks when crate training your dog or puppy. If they shy away from the crate, try placing a chew bone and shutting its gate when they are not inside. They can see and smell that bone, and they will want in the crate to have it. After he goes in the crate, reward him with praise and a treat.
Use control when rewarding good behavior during training your dog. If your dog follows a training command properly, then it is acceptable to reward the behavior to a calm animal. This will help to excite your dog and leave you in complete control. Act calmly, expect calmness, and then appropriately reward the dog.
Always ensure your dog is getting enough exercise. Just like humans, dogs can become bored easily. Bored dogs are difficult to train. A happy and well-exercised dog is an easily trained dog. Walk or run your dog frequently.
Consistency is key when working on crate training with a young dog. When the dog is let out of the crate, it is necessary to give him a chance to relive himself right away. Eventually, your dog will wait until you let him out of his crate to relive himself.
Keep in mind that you’ll have to do a lot of repetition in order to each your dog new commands. You might have to repeat the same exercise up to fifty times before your dog remembers it. Keep trying the same commands until your dog remembers it for good.
Don’t overdo your training sessions, keep them brief and interesting for best results. Your dog will get bored and antsy if you spend too much time on one thing. Do not spend more than 10 minutes on each session.
Make sure you use your dog’s name often, so that he learns to associate it with paying attention to you. Use the name often, especially during the first weeks at home; the puppy should associate his name with focusing on you. Choose a shorter name that can stand out from other terms.
Well-trained dogs know what to expect and are generally happier. With this article, you have learned some tips and tricks you can use when it comes time to train your beloved dog.
