Getting a dog is a big deal, and it requires some serious thought. Having a dog in the family requires the right preparation. An untrained dog will misbehave and cause trouble in your household. If you decide to adopt a puppy or dog, use the tips in this article to get a good start.
Correcting a dog should be done quickly and concisely. Yelling and screaming at your dog is counterproductive. Firmly say no and redirect them. Make sure your voice sounds firm and businesslike.
Do your best to keep your dog active through the day. Just like humans, dogs can become bored easily. Bored dogs are harder to train. Your dog will pay better attention to commands, as well as play with you more, when he has been exercised properly. Before every training session, prepare your dog by taking them for a walk.
Your dog should always give you its attention when asked. If you do it enough times, your dog will wait for your signals instead of focusing on other things.
It is dangerous to put more than one dog together in a close space. Their chains could get tangled up and as they struggle to get free; there is a good chance the dogs can get injured. It can even be fatal if you tie a large dog up with a small dog, and the large dog ends up getting a chain wrapped around the small dog’s neck.
You will have to repeat commands several times before your dog learns it. You may need to repeat the same command lesson from 25 to 30 times before your dog learns it. Keep trying, your dog will pick it up.
Stay with the training, so that he doesn’t forget the lessons that he learned. Keep him in practice. People think that just because their dog has been trained once, that is all they need. Dogs forget things just like humans do; however, and the dog will lose discipline without practice. This is why you must make sure that you have a rule system that is strict for your dog.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve had your dog; you can utilize these tips to train any dog. It is always best to attempt to correct negative behaviors quickly for the safety and happiness of everyone involved.
