Most dogs need some sort of training. Implement the tips and tricks in this article to help you train your dog.
If you in the crate training phase of your training program, you can use a few techniques to speed it up. If they don’t want to go in the crate, try luring them in with a treat or chew bone. A tempting bone will prove too hard to resist, and the dog will be panting to get into the crate in no time. After they enter the crate, be sure to give them love and attention to let them know they did something to please you.
Use firm control to elicit desirable behaviors from your pet. Giving a reward for an appropriate behavior is correct, but do it quickly and move on. If you get excited, the dog will become excited and everything will be out of control. Therefore, remain calm and expect your dog to act calm. Once this is accomplished, reward your dog.
Give your puppy some toys to chew on so they do not hurt while teething, keep other things they might want to chew on out of their reach! Replace the item immediately with one of the dog’s own chew toys. If your puppy seems to be suffering a lot from teething, a frozen washcloth to chew on can give him some relief.
Training your pet to roll over very easy. Just remember to have treats in hand. Firstly, have the dog lie down. Next, hold the treat close to the floor on one side of the dog’s head, and slowly bringing it upwards and over to the dog’s other side. Your dog is probably going to follow the treat in your hand with his nose, which means he will rollover his whole body. While he rolls, say “roll over” and repeat this action until he is able to roll over with only the command. Be patient while he masters this trick. He will be a star once he does!
Pay attention to the length of your dog training sessions. Dogs can quickly lose focus when you prolong activities. Aim for less than 10 minutes per session.
Do not give up, even if your pet is currently running wild in your home. It just takes some knowledge and patience. The advice you’ve read here should get you off on the right foot.
