The dog that you have just adopted may seem less like Lassie, and more like Cujo. Even the smartest dog was once a mischievous pup like yours. You can develop a relationship with your pet and teach it how to behave in a house by training it.
Your dog will perform best on a healthy diet. It is entirely up to you to provide a good diet for your pet. This can influence their behavior and harm their health. Something as simple as improving their diet can sometimes have a huge impact on how receptive they are to training.
Select an appropriately sized crate to foster solid crate training results. Keep in mind that puppies get bigger. Choose a crate which will be suitable for the puppy when he matures into an adult. Your dog should be able to easily turn around and sleep without being overly crowded.
It is best to train your pet without unintentionally affirming his undesirable behaviors and mistakes. Withhold treats and attention when your dog exhibits any undesirable behaviors. If the dog jumps at you, don't rub it's head.
The first thing that you must do is to command control over your dog. You need to establish your authority, or he will ignore your commands. Your dog should not walk ahead of you, because that indicates a position of leadership.
Your dog needs to be up to date on his training. This will help to make them more obedient. Too many owners tend to be under the impression that once they have trained their dog, that's the end of it. Dogs forget things just like humans do; however, and the dog will lose discipline without practice. Therefore, it is vital that your dog follows an established rule system at all times.
Training your pet to roll over very easy. Just remember to have treats in hand. Initially, try to get your dog to lay on the floor. 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. He will naturally use his nose to follow the treat, thus rolling over his whole body. While rolling, use your vocal command. Be patient with him when you are teaching this because once he learns it, he can be quite the show-off amongst your friends.
A lot of pet owners are pleasantly surprised how canine behavior training can fit seamlessly into their lives and just how soon they can see positive effects. So if the relationship with your dog is not as good as it should be, try a few of these suggestions.
