Whether you are house training, crate training, potty training, or clicker training, training your dog is one of the most important aspects of dog ownership. However, you may have found that training your dog or puppy without taking the time to do any research to gain the training knowledge is a pretty difficult task. You can easily make a bad choice especially if you are not familiar with the types of dog training methods available. I would share with you in this post, free basic dog training tips that you can easily adopted for your dog training.
Establishing a good relationship with your dog starts right away. Every day, spend about 15 to 20 minutes in a friendly, pleasant mood, playing with her. This alone is a good way to start things off.
Consider doing a few things for your dog to get used to spend more time with you. Use an enjoyable game such as like fetch and reward your dog with the treat and lots of attention and affection. It is important to always reward your dog for the positive behavior that you want to see more of in order to establish that type of relationship.
In fact, I would recommend that you should start your basic puppy training as soon as you bring her back home. It may be difficult to keep her from piddling on your brand new carpet, but it can be done.
Perhaps the first thing you should do is potty train your puppy. Yes, that is quite a task, but doing it early will give you a head start. When you bring your puppy home, take her to the area where you want her to go to the bathroom. She won’t know where that is, so you should take her to the same spot each time and give her the command to go to the bathroom.
I would also suggest that you start teaching this command “sit” as soon as possible to your puppy as this is extremely useful (If you have a puppy that keeps running around your home). Even a very young puppy can sit and understand the command.
To teach the “Sit” command, put a treat in your hand and show it to your dog. Bring your hand sharply down, just past her nose, and then bring it up again over her head. As your dog starts to sit, give the command “Sit.” If she does so, reward her with the treat and plenty of praise. If she doesn’t sit, move your hand down a bit further and say “Sit.” Be patient, your dog may take a few tries. Don’t scold her as you want your dog to sit.
When you speak your dog, she is able to sense what you want and what your intent is. If you showered her with love and she feel loved back, she will obey those commands. So coaching with love and support to your dog will get you the greatest reward of all, your dog love and loyalty.
Proper interaction is important for the development of a good relationship between your dog and other dog(s). This is a good way for you to improve your training skills, as well as a fantastic chance to further socialize your dog. Once your dog is willing to meet another dog, you may introduce them to a friend, neighbor, or possible family member.
Socialization is very important in making your puppy or adult dog a confident, healthy, and friendly adult dog. Socialization doesn’t solve all behavior problems, but it is the foundation for solving just about any problem.
Dogs need to be well socialized with people and other dogs, so that they are well-rounded. Dog aggression should not be a concern in your future. Remember that the best way to solve any problem is to teach the correct approach.
Dogs know what they do, but they would not know what we want. Using punishment is a waste of time and energy. If you want your dog to behave, but you don’t want to give him a tug on the leash, or a harsh voice, do yourself a favor and start learning the tips on how to train your puppy.
A dog has the same needs as a human baby: to be loved, understand the world around them, and feel safe and secure. Like a human child, your dog needs to learn how to control her own behavior, and how to interact with others, dogs need this as well.
The right kind of dog training will reward your dog for all the things she does that make you happy. By using the rewards system, your dog learns to do things for the right reasons and to please you. With a little effort on your part, your dog’s behavior will be refined to levels that are acceptable to you.
Remember that all dog training does take some effort. The most common mistake that many people make is thinking that because their dog is stubborn, it is more difficult to train.
There are many wonderful dog training programs available online that are proven to help train your dog. Of course, you need to make sure that the training is for your dog and works in the way that you intended for. After all, you want your dog to have the best training experience possible, and you want to make sure that it is a positive one.
Spend some time training your dog. Not only will you have a much better dog, you will also develop a bond that is very healthy and deep. Then you can move forward with some degree of confidence, and with a clear understanding of what you want from your dog.
