Congratulations! Where do you go from here? If you train your dog effectively, you and your dog will be much happier. The following tips will teach you everything you need to know to properly train you new pet.
If you are crate training your dog, you need to show them that this is where they will sleep. You should put their food in the cage and leave the door open if it is time for them to eat. This will allow your dog to have a positive association with the crate.
Make sure that your dog stays awake and active. Dogs are easily bored. When dogs are bored they are difficult to train. Your dog will pay better attention to commands, as well as play with you more, when he has been exercised properly. Walk or run your dog frequently.
When you are trying to house train your puppy, keep in mind that everything that you put in, will come out. Feed your dog a high-quality diet three times a day. You can then schedule your walks at the right times to prevent unwanted accidents.
When you begin training your puppy, create a bond with him by first teaching him his name. Call his name every time you do something or want him to do something. Teach him that he needs to run to you when his name is called. Usually this simple command “come” and their name, are what they learn first. By setting aside some special time for you and your puppy, you will give him the opportunity to get to know you, as well as trust you. This will make him easier to train later.
To train your dog efficiently, you must learn how to be firm with it. Try not to yell though, as negative reinforcement does not work. You will be best friends with your dog.
Use your dog’s name as much as you can to make sure he is paying attention. Early in your dog ownership, you should use your dog’s name several times a day, so he starts to understand that you want his attention. Choose a puppy name that sounds differently than other words your puppy may hear throughout the day.
Training a dog is beneficial for everyone. It makes the dog happy, the owner happy and the neighbors happy. With this article, you have learned some tips and tricks you can use when it comes time to train your beloved dog.
