Every dog owner wants their dog to do what they want. Let me assure you that a well-behaved dog is certainly something you can achieve, in simple, proven steps.
Even if you’ve tried already to train your dog, and not been as successful as you might wish, don’t blame yourself. There’s lots of misinformation on this subject, and incomplete ideas around.
Don’t worry that it might be too complicated or challenging to train your dog. Once you understand the basics, it’s simple and effective. You just need patience, dedication and some simple tactics and you will teach them successfully. Here are five proven tips on how to train your dogs successfully: 1. To avoid your dog getting confused and so that they can learn to recognize commands easily only one person should be responsible for training the dog initially. If too many people are trying to train the dog at the same time this can stop progress in its tracks. Also make 100% sure you are consistent with the words you use for each command, so it’s easy for your dog to learn what you mean. 2. You should use positive reinforcements. If the dog does something good, you should reward this behavior so that he will know that what he did was right. Dogs love your attention, so giving it positive feedback, praise, and attention will powerfully reinforce its learning.
What you should understand is that they won’t easily understand your commands in just one teaching, it takes repetition to train a dog successfully. Do not scold your dog as he might develop fear which will hinder his learning and willingness to be trained.
If you use treats in order to encourage your dogs, make sure to take them out of the dogs daily food allowance, to keep your dog healthy. 3. Teach commands one at a time. Stay on that one command until your dog shows you that he consistently understands and obeys it, before adding a new command for him to also learn. 4. In giving commands, you should keep your voice cheerful so that the dog will happily follow your commands. Don’t shout or get angry, because he may become frightened and unwilling. 5. Train your dog in various different places. If you keep your dogs in a certain place like your home, he will not be able to adjust to the environment and new people. Take him to the park or through the neighborhood. This will help your dog associate with other dogs and people. Training your dog can sometime be tough, but it will be worth it. Both you and the dog will be much better off when your dog understands what you want him to do.
