A lot of people adopt dogs without thinking the decision through. Dogs need a commitment from you. Training a dog improves their behavior and reduces the amount of trouble they get into. You can use this advice if you would like to train a dog you have adopted. NOTE: thank you for all the lovely comments on my workout outfit. It’s not my design – it’s a combination of big brands and smaller brands I have found online. I might also start an acitvewear blog soon!
The first step in dog training is commanding control. If the dog does not understand that you have control he will ignore your commands and act with outright disobedience. For example, when you walk your dog you must be in front and you should insist your dog follows behind you.
When you are training a pet you need to speak to them in a even and stern tone. This lets them know you’re serious and that they must obey. It also helps the dog to understand the difference between a sharp tone for discipline and a sharp but non-punishing command.
Remember to have patience when it comes to training your dog. This will prevent both you and your dog from getting angry and frustrated with the training process. Your pet wants you to be happy, but he or she cannot always understand the human language.
Make sure to give your dog a good hour of exercise each and every day. If they are well-exercised, then you will have more efficient training. A dog who has proper training and enough play time will be a happy dog.
Prior to training your puppy, make a bond with your dog by teaching him what his name is. Call his name every time you do something or want him to do something. Teach him that he needs to run to you when his name is called. It is a good idea to have your puppy learn these words first. Spend lots of time with your dog, so it gets to know you and understands that you are to be trusted. This way, you will find future training to be infinitely easier.
It does not matter how long you have owned your dog; if your dog is not trained, you can follow this article’s advice and train your dog properly. Make sure you react before the dog injures himself or someone else.
