You might become frustrated when trying to train your dog, even more so if you just got your him. But if you implement the advice provided here, you will find out how to have a better relationship with your dog as well as a better understanding of its needs and yours.
Be consistent when training your dog. Everyone that works with your dog should use the same commands, as well as the same techniques. When your dog only needs to understand a single set of directions, it is easier to learn and adopt the desired behaviors.
Never chain two dogs too close to each other. The chain from one dog could wrap around the second and the dogs could get hurt trying to get free. If two dogs’ chains become entangled, it is possible that one or both dogs could experience difficulty breathing or even strangulation.
Make sure your dog’s check ups are current. If you have a hard time training your dog, you should take them to the vet. Dogs are great at hiding discomfort and pain. It is often the case that behavioural symptoms are the only indication of a health problem. Common changes include losing control of their bladder and a sudden onset of aggressive behavior.
When you are teaching your dog the “fetch” command, make him bring you the ball every time so you can establish the position as the leader. If you ever pick the ball from up where your dog dropped it, then your canine friend will think he is the leader. By teaching your dog that he is the one who must bring you the ball, he can be aware of what is expected out of him.
Patience is definitely a virtue when training your pet. This will make it less likely that you or your dog will become frustrated or upset with the process of training. Keep in mind that your dog aims to please you, however, it does not understand your language, so it takes time for it to learn what you expect.
Make sure you give your dog a good workout every day. Make sure your dog is properly fed, given a comfortable corner or bed to sleep and has a good place to run and be active.
Realize that sometimes you will need to contact a professional. It can be hard to admit that your attempts to train your dog aren’t working, but professional dog trainers can teach you what to do so that you can be successful after all. Professional trainers can instruct you on how to improve your training methods, and get both you and your pet back on track.
Use the tips you just read and your dog will soon become a lot easier to manage and become easier to live with. When you use what you’ve learned, your dog will become a perfect citizen.
