Appropriate canine training is important in ensuring that your home environment remains peaceful for your dog and for yourself. Give some of the following tips a shot. They may help you better the relationship between you and your dog.
It takes small steps to crate train your puppy; they must become accustomed to it. When your dog appears to be at ease while inside the crate with the door ajar, you can help him adjust to the crate even further by slowly latching the door and rewarding him with treats fed to him through the spaces between the wires. Start with short times numbering in mere seconds, and increase the intervals gradually. If they start to fuss, you are going too fast.
Timing is everything in puppy training, and you need to make sure you don’t overdo it. Start with a short session and gradually add more time to it. Pay attention and end the session when your dog loses interest.
Consistency is really the secret to crate training puppies. When the dog is let out of the crate, it is necessary to give him a chance to relive himself right away. As time passes, your puppy will start to be able to use the restroom at the appropriate times.
It is very easy to teach a pooch to roll over as long as you have some tasty treats on hand. First, make your dog lay down. Afterward, bring the treat above the dogs head and follow over to their other side. Ideally, your dog will use his nose to follow the treat, rolling his whole body in the process. While he rolls, say “roll over” and repeat this action until he is able to roll over with only the command. It will take some work, but keep on trying!
Don’t use any kind of devices, like a shock collar, when training your dog. In addition to being very expensive, they usually do not work as well as the more traditional training techniques. These devices can stifle your dog’s natural reactions and have negative effects on even good or acceptable behaviors. You will usually get negative results with these techniques.
Regardless of your dog’s age, or his previous behavior problems, the advice above really can help. Remember to be patient while training your dog using the advice from this article. Hopefully, you can soon have a better relationship with your dog.
