A dog is very similar to a television remote that needs to be programmed to work with a TV. They already have the correct abilities, but they aren’t synced correctly out of the box. This article can help bring out the innate ability to be trained in every dog.
Stay in control as you reward your dog’s good behavior. You and the dog should both remain calm. Don’t let your own excitement get your dog excited or they will lose focus. Try to stay as calm as possible during your dog training session.
Dogs only have the ability to focus on one thing at a time. Once your dog knows his attention command, you will be able to coerce him to ignore almost anything.
Consistency is key when working on crate training with a young dog. Shortly after you allow your puppy to exit the crate, he must be given the chance to relieve himself in the designated area. Over time, the puppy will be able to wait until the appropriate opportunity to answer the call of nature.
Learning how to show authority is the foundation of all dog training. You must establish your dominance first and foremost, or your dog is unlikely to obey. In practice, this means that you should walk ahead when walking your dog, for instance, rather than allowing him or her to take the lead.
Begin training your dog with a task that will be simple for him to learn. It will provide almost instant gratification, and it will show your dog what is expected. This way you will have better results throughout the course of your training experience.
A pet owner who can help a dog reach its potential will have an easy time and a long, enjoyable life spent in the company of an obedient animal. Your dog will take pleasure in learning commands and will love to see you happy when he does something right.
