Puppy training can be very intimidating to someone that has never done it before. With so much conflicting information out there, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Here are some tips to get you started. Treats are necessary when teaching a dog fancy tricks like rolling over. The dog has to lay down first. Then hold the treat at the side of the dog’s head and move it around it’s face to the other side. He should follow the treat with his nose, causing him to roll his whole body over. As he is rolling over say, “roll over” and praise them immediately when they do. Make sure you are patient because this is likely to take several attempts. However, your dog will eventually learn this command. Repetition is the key to success when teaching a dog a new command. It may take as many as fifty repetitions before your dog learns the command. Continue repeating the command patiently, and eventually your dog will understand it.
TIP! Walking on a leash is a big step in your dog’s training. The safety of both of you while out walking is paramount, and the proper training will ensure this.
Be ready with a favorite treat when your dog successfully completes a command. You want to teach your pooch that good behavior is beneficial. Doing so makes your dog learn what he can and can’t do. Give your dog a regular elimination and feeding schedule, so you can house train them. This will help you better understand when your dog needs to go outside, so he doesn’t go on the carpet and ruin it. Being consistent will teach the dog to hold it until it is time to go outside. Be patient when training a dog. Using patience helps prevent frustration for both you and the dog. Your dog wants to make you happy, but sometimes it just does not understand you. Your dog does not need to respond to you saying “no”. You must find positive methods to reinforce your commands when training a dog. Saying ‘no’ does not teach your dog how to react. Every dog and situation is unique and you should adapt your strategies accordingly.
TIP! Use positive reinforcement when dog training. Reward your dog with happy words, petting and an occasional very small treat when he pleases you.
“Leave It!” should be one of the first commands that a puppy learns. This command instructs them to release an object and walk away. It ensures they don’t eat food they shouldn’t, chew on items not intended to be chewed on or even pick up dangerous or poisonous items in their mouth. Make sure that both you and your dog enjoy the daily training. When you play with your dog, you help make a stranger bond between the two of you. In return, he becomes more receptive to being trained. Training can be a fun experience, however, getting some enjoyment for yourself and the dog through play is a good thing. Training is a lifetime endeavor. Training does not stop when your dog leaves his puppy stage. Reinforce the positive behaviors, reward your dog for being obedient and punish your dog for its bad behavior. Training is a lifetime endeavor. Even though your dog is an adult, it must keep learning. Reinforce the positive behaviors, reward your dog for being obedient and punish your dog for its bad behavior.
TIP! When housebreaking your puppy, accidents will happen. Your training will go more smoothly if you always clean up accidents right away.
