Who doesn’t enjoy the joy and company a dog can provide? It can be tough work when you bring home a puppy. Training is a necessary part of a puppy. Learn the training tips in this article and use them regularly, and your dog will be trained in no time.
It may take several times for your dog to learn new commands. You might have to repeat the same exercise up to fifty times before your dog remembers it. Try using the command more often and be very patient if you want your dog to learn.
Try to mistakenly avoid reinforcing any behaviors that are unwanted when doing canine training. In basic terms, this means refusing to reward your dog, via attention or treats, for doing any action that you are trying to get them to stop doing. For instance, it will be difficult or impossible to train your dog not to jump on people if you give your pet a friendly neck-scratch when he or she jumps on you.
It is easy to train a roll with treats. The first step is a simple “lay” command. Hold a treat between your forefingers near the left side of your dog’s head, and then slowly pass the treat in front of his face and to the opposite side. This will cause your dog to use their nose to follow the treat. As a result, your dog will roll over. Whenever your dog does actually roll over, say “roll over” out loud. Repeating this over time forms a mental association in your dog’s mind that eventually causes him to roll over on command. Be patient while he masters this trick. He will be a star once he does!
When it’s time to introduce house training to your dog, put him on a consistent schedule of eating and elimination. This makes it clear to your dog that he has to go outside and poop now, instead of stinking up your carpet. A schedule will train your dog to know when he will get to go out next.
During your training sessions, you should keep a close eye on the time. Dog attention spans only go so far, so make sure not to go on too long. This is why you need to limit the time of your training sessions to around 10 minutes.
After you have brought your new furry friend home, its time to begin training him. Stay patient and reward your dog when they act properly. Some of the advice may be a challenge, but it will be worth it.
