Dogs need to be trained for a variety of reasons. While certain dogs are trained for hunting or protection, others are just trained for their owner’s convenience. Dogs’ general willingness to please makes them ideal students. This is one of reasons they are known as man’s best friend. Use the following tips to get the most out of your training your dog efforts with your pet.
If you plan on using a crate as part of your puppy’s training routine, introduce the apparatus and its’ functions very gradually. Once he is comfortable walking in and out of the crate, try quietly closing the door and offering him a biscuit through the wires. In the beginning it is important to only leave the dog in the crate for a few seconds. After a while you will be able to leave them in the crate for longer amounts of time. If the dog becomes agitated, slow down a little more to make them more comfortable.
Try to walk in your dogs shoes before you criticize them. As advanced creatures, we humans have problems accepting when our dogs aren’t picking up new skills as fast as we’d like. Don’t give up! Think how they think instead. This allows you to gain more insight into what is most likely to work and what should be avoided.
You need to establish regular feeding routines for your dog. He has to know when the food will arrive and it should be on schedule, but he also needs to know when the food will be removed again. Shortly, the dog will start finishing their food well before you plan to take the dish away.
Training your dog to start rolling over is easy, but be sure to have some treats. Begin by getting the dog to lay down. Now, with a treat in your palm, move your hand from one side of the dog’s face to the other. They’ll follow your treat with their nose which will cause them to roll over. Say “roll over” as you perform the maneuver. It will probably take multiple attempts, but you will be the talk of the town when the trick is learned.
