Properly training your four-legged friend can help make life easier and more pleasant for both of you. Try some of the ideas you will read here. They may help you better the relationship between you and your dog.
It is dangerous to put more than one dog together in a close space. The restraints for each dog can become tangled and in an effort to free themselves, they can be injured. If dogs get tangled up too severely, one can get wrapped up so badly it could close off the airway, and he could die.
Always be ready with dog treats. You want them to know they did the right thing. This is how they’ll know what to do and what not to do.
Make sure to give your dog a good hour of exercise each and every day. Being sure they have enough exercise time can ease training efforts and encourage proper behavior from them. If your pet can exercise regularly and be active, he will be far more happy and responsive.
You should always call your dog in the same way. Start commands with their name all the time. Secure the dog’s attention and then state what you wish him to do. Dogs tend to respond by name right away and they know that you want their attention.
Accidents must be avoided during potty training. Learn to know the things your pet does when it needs to go. Pacing, whining and snuffling are common. Do not wait more than a couple of minutes. Immediately pick up the leash and go outside to a preferred spot. Whenever your dog uses the restroom outside, reward him or her with lots of praise. Before long, he will be able to ask you to take him out.
Do not wear out your new puppy with an excessive training regiment. A puppy’s attention span is short and it has a limited amount of energy, so sessions should remain short and positive. If you overdo it, he is likely to forget everything he learned and simply remember the experience in an unfavorable light, making it that much harder for you the next time you attempt the training.
The first step in leash training your new puppy is by putting a collar on him while you play with him. Getting your puppy used to the collar is essential for proper use of the leash and for ensuring that his ID tags are worn just in case he runs off.
Regardless of your dog’s age or level of training, he is sure to benefit from this advice. Stay patient and consistent. With any luck, your relationship with your dog will now be happier than it has ever been.
