A dog is a member of the family, so it’s understandable that you want to get his or her training right. The following article will shed some light on some simple puppy training tricks and tips that you can use to your benefit. Before you train your dog, you need to do a little homework of your own.

Whenever you have to correct your dog, make sure to speak using short and sharp language. Avoid launching a lengthy tirade against your pet and his naughty behavior. Say NO and redirect your dog to the desired behavior. The tone of your voice should let them know you are serious about the command you are making.

TIP! Your dog should know when calm time is to be had. It is great to have playtime with your pet, but your dog should stay calm when you come into the room.

For the best results in training your pet, you must be diligent about giving rewards and encouragement. Giving your dog treats at the right time and in the right amount is important. Your dog does not know why they are getting the reward unless you do it right after the positive behavior.

Your training sessions must be long enough for your dog to learn the desired behavior but no so long that he becomes bored. Start with a short session and gradually add more time to it. Notice when your dog begins getting distracted during a training session.

TIP! Be consistent with your dog training to make sure your animal stays obedient to the rules it has been learning. A lot of owners will train their dogs once and not conduct any refreshers.

Never tie two or more dogs in close vicinity to one another. The two chains could get tangled up. This could panic you dogs as he tries to get free and he could potentially hurt himself. In the worst case, a large dog might be able to strangle or crush a smaller one, entirely by accident, while trying to free itself.

This is the first step in being a great trainer. The tips here will help you become a better trainer since you will listen better and understand what your dog needs. Even the most basic ideas can produce significant changes.
