The Basic Commands Of Excellent Puppy Training

TIP! Try to see things from your dog's perspective. It is easy to get frustrated with your dog if they are not learning very basic things quickly or at all.

Do you want a dog but are unaware of how to train it? Maybe you're already a dog owner but are not satisfied with its behavior. Well then, you've come to the right place! Keep reading to learn easy, simple tips on how to train your dog to be your best buddy.

TIP! Your dog needs to lead an active lifestyle. Almost all dogs have short attention spans.

It is important to have a consistent training method when crate training young puppies. When the dog is let out of the crate, it is necessary to give him a chance to relive himself right away. As you continue this training, your pet will begin to wait until he gets to the appropriate location to relieve himself.

TIP! Don't waste your money on expensive training products, such as shock collars. Most of the time these don't function as they should and can cost quite a bit of money.

The first step in canine training is commanding control. Your dog will neither obey nor respect you if he believes he is the leader of your household. When you walk your dog, walk in front of him to establish leadership.

TIP! Choose a set phrase for house training your dog. Every time you take him outside, tell him “go potty,” (use whatever phrase you have chosen) and this will help him learn to focus and remember what he has gone outside to do.

Do not ever use a shock collar to train your dog. In many cases, they do not live up to the advertising expectations created, and are just more money than more effective and traditional training tools. Plus, using devices like shock collars can stifle your dog and discourage even good behavior. These methods of training generally fail.

TIP! One command that should be taught early to a puppy is “leave it.” This teaches them to drop something and step way from it.

Let your dog have more freedom as he or she starts to behave and listen to commands more. You will find your dog to be more obedient and your dog will be happier. Just be careful not to overdo it on the freedom initially as it can set your dog training efforts back.

TIP! Use short training sessions. Dogs can't concentrate for long periods of time, so long training sessions are pointless.

If you encounter a dog with whom you are not acquainted, you should do so slowly and with the back of a hand outstretched. This lets them warm up to the scent and they'll most likely trust you. When a dog recognizes the scent, they won't fear you and will follow commands.

TIP! Identify a single word that you will use as a no-bark command. Show the dog a treat as incentive, then repeat the command until they obey it.

Patience is imperative when you engage in a training session. This will keep you and your pupy from becoming frustrated or angry. Your pet wants you to be happy, but he or she cannot always understand the human language.

Kept Short

TIP! One of the most important things in training is teaching your dog to come back to you. Your dog has to learn to come to you, regardless of the situation.

Training lessons should be kept short. Dogs don't have long attention spans so make sure that your training sessions are kept short. If more training is desired, work in some break times so your dog can play before continuing with training.

TIP! Don't send mixed signals to your dog when he misbehaves. If you're acting amused while your pet is behaving badly, he may think his behavior is good.

Now that you have read just how simple dog training can be, why put it off any longer? Use these tips as soon as possible to teach your dog how to behave. Dogs love to please and want to follow your commands. They just need someone to firmly show them how. Start training your dog today!
