If you have a dog that is poorly behaved, learning more about dog training can really help your dog become more obedient. Ahead are some of the suggestions and advice you will need to meet your goals in dog training.
Here are a few ways to make crate training more positive for your dog. A dog is naturally hesitant about a crate at first. A way to get them interested is to put their favorite toy in the crate, then shut the door. Your dog will get excited at the prospect of the treat and soon be eager to enter the crate. Give your dog some praise when he gets inside, so that he further associates being in the crate with good behavior.
Consistency is key in crate training a puppy. As soon as the puppy is out of the crate, let them have an opportunity to go outside and relieve themselves. As time passes, your puppy will start to be able to use the restroom at the appropriate times.
It takes many repetitions before a dog is able to learn new commands. It may take about 25-50 repetitions of a particular command before your dog understands it. Use the command over and over again until the dog gets the hint.
When potty training your pup, remember that whatever he eats must come out. To keep your pet regular, feed him quality food a couple of times daily at the same hour. That way, you will know when the dog likely needs to go out and can prevent accidents.
It is not difficult to teach a dog how to roll over, and having some treats on hand makes it easier. Begin by getting the dog to lay down. Next, you must hold one treat close to the floor off to one side of their head and slowly bring it up and over the dog’s head to the opposite side. They should follow that treat with their nose, which should cause them to 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.
