Is the behavior of your dog frustrating and stressing you out? If this is the case, your dog might require further training. Devoting time and patience to working with your dog now will yield wonderful payoffs throughout your time together. The following piece will give you advice on how to train your dog properly.

When you’re working on training you dog, you must always try to teach it how to know that it’s their home. When you feed him, feed him inside the crate, and keep the door open while he is in there eating. This creates a positive association between good food and their new crate.

TIP! Correcting a dog should be done quickly and concisely. Don’t scream and yell and throw a fit.

When training a puppy to use a crate it is important to take your time and start with only a few steps at a time. If your dog seems comfortable inside the crate when the door is open, shut it and feed them a treat. Start small, like at 10 seconds per approach, and then gradually increase the times. If the dog becomes upset, then you need to take a step back and slow down the training.

Timing is everything in canine training, and you need to make sure you don’t overdo it. Start out with a small training session and up the time every day. Know when your dog does not pay attention when you are training it.

TIP! Teething can be painful which is why your puppy chews on things, so always give him a choice of chew toys to keep him from getting into trouble. The right chew toys should be given to the pup immediately.

It takes many repetitions before a dog is able to learn new commands. It may take about 25-50 repetitions of a particular command before your dog understands it. Continue repeating the same command with patience, and eventually your dog will learn it.

With patience and a handful of tasty treats, you can easily teach your pet to roll over. Start by commanding the animal to 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. They should follow that treat with their nose, which should cause them to roll over. As he is rolling over, give the “roll over” command, and do this repeatedly until he can roll over with just the command and without the treat. It may take a while to get to this point, but you will be pleased if you stick with it. It’s an impressive trick.

TIP! Dogs can have a one-track mind and remain focused on one thing until you break the dog out of it. Your dog can learn to focus less and less, except for your commands, by using repetition.

If you invest the time in proper puppy training, you will enjoy your pet’s company. While it may sometimes seem that your training will never accomplish its goals, just hang in there and be consistent.Perseverance will achieve the results you desire. By remembering these things, you will be more successful in your endeavors.
