If puppy training is something new to you, it may be that you could benefit greatly from some tips and tricks. The following advice can help start you and your dog get on the right path.
You will have to repeat commands several times before your dog learns it. It’s very likely to take many repetitions of one command in order for your pup to fully understand it. Continue trying the same command and be patient, your dog will get it.
When training your dog, try to avoid reinforcing negative behavior. This means that you should never reward your dog, with treats or attention, for doing something you’re trying to train it out of. You should not pet your dog when it jumps on you or acknowledge its barking.
If you are going to be training a pet, you should think about a word or noise that will tell your pet they did a good thing. “Yes” works very well when said the same way time and time again.
Do not allow your pet to become complacent in his training. Establish a clear set of rules and stick with it at all times. Often, owners get the feeling that they do not need to continue working with the dog once it is trained. Dogs are much like humans, in the sense that they share the same habitual learning system. Therefore, it is vital that your dog follows an established rule system at all times.
Walking on a leash is a big step in your dog’s training. This will assure that the two of you are safe when you are out on walks.
When toilet training your dog, try to avoid accidents! Watch your dog and recognize the signs that he is ready for a trip outdoors. It’s common for them to snuffle, wise and pace when they have to go. Don’t delay if you see your dog needs to go out. Put your dog on a leash and take him where he should go. Praise him for a job well done. Over time, he is going to learn to try to get outside to go.
Good puppy training can teach your dog everything from basic behavior modification to advanced trick mastery. With these tips, you can approach puppy training with a little experience under your belt.
