Dogs bring love and joy into our homes. Puppies require a lot of time and work. Training is a necessary part of a puppy. You will soon have a well-trained dog if you use the above advice.
Be careful of disrupting your training time with rewards. Immediately after the animal acts in accordance with your command, reward him. This helps to calm the animal and reinforce your training efforts. You might be happy about the progress your dog has made but you need to quell your excitment. You should stay calm and then give the reward.
The more active your dog is, the healthier it will be. Dogs can easily become bored. A bored dog is very difficult to train. Your dog needs proper exercise to function to his highest potential. Go on extended walks or runs with your dog on a regular basis.
Dogs can have a one-track mind and remain focused on one thing until you break the dog out of it. With frequent practice, your dog will begin to focus on you and the signals you are giving him instead of other distractions.
Keep treats on hand to reward your pet for doing good. Begin by getting the dog to lay down. Then, position a treat near the floor to one side of him, raise it up and move it over to the opposite side. His nose will follow the treat, naturally making him roll over. As he is rolling over, give the “roll over” command, and do this repeatedly until he can roll over with just the command and without the treat. Be persistent and do not give up; it might take a while but will be worth it once they learn it.
Your daily schedule should consist of regular potty breaks, regular training sessions and an hour of good exercise. Making sure that your dog gets enough exercise makes your training sessions a lot more effective and it will also encourage your dog to have good behavior. An exercised dog leads to having a responsive and happy dog.
Teach your dog that no response is required when you say ‘no’. Instead, use positive reinforcement to encourage positive behaviors and gloss past the results that are not what you want. Saying ‘no’ is not a good command, and the dog won’t know how to react. No two animals and trainers are alike, so choose an approach that meets both your needs.
