Universal Principles For Successful Dog Training
Dog training is not rocket science and is not as
difficult as you think. It is certainly possible
for ANY dog owners to train their dogs
themselves provided they put in adequate
amount of effort. The principles listed here are
universal to dog training of any dog breeds, be
it sporting, working, toy or terrier, any dogs -
big or small, pup or old, any Owners -
competitive or leisure.
In short, if you are serious about training
your dog and demand Only success, You MUST apply
these principles. No If No But. Get the basic
right first before you start to train your dog!
Consistency is very important during
training and correcting unwanted behavior.
Always use the same "command" for a specific task
you require of your dog. Dont confuse him by
using different command for the same task.
Once youve establish some house rules such as -
keeping the cooking area out of bound to your
dog, enforce them constantly. If the dog learns
that he can get away with it now and then, your
previous efforts will go down the drain. Lastly,
make sure everyone in the family accept and
enforce your rules consistently.
Timing is critical to successful training.
Praise your dog whenever he is doing
something right. As expected, reprimand him on
the spot and to the point whenever he misbehave
or fails to response to your command. Praise and
reprimand that happen later will have no effect
on your dog.
There are 2 main schools of thoughts concerning
the timing of correction when your dog
misbehaves. I called the first school of thoughts
the Direct Approach. It simply requires you to
reprimand your dog on the spot if he misbehaves.
This is more of a tangible and straight forward
approach to training your dog and is easy to
understand for most trainers.
I called the second school of thoughts the
Endurance Approach as itll require you to
ignore your dog when he misbehaves. Using the
cause and effect to your advantage, this approach
requires you to ignore the dog, especially when
he misbehaves to seek attention and encourage you
to pay attention to your dog only when hes a
good boy.
Dogs love attention and are hugely motivated by
it. Unlike man, dogs do not know how to
differentiate between positive and negative
attention. They see things in a simple way. If a
certain action gets reaction and attention,
youll bet they repeat it over and over again.
(Cause and Effect)
Unfortunately, for most dog owners, we more often
than not give our dogs negative attention. For
example, "Do you let him out of his crate when he
groans?" or "Do you give chase when he runs off
with your socks?" These are negative attentions
given to the dog and is certainly motivating his
bad behavior.
Fortunately, the opposite is true if you
pay enough attention to your dog when he
behaves himself. When the dog understands
that hell get attention only when hes
behaving, hell learn that only good behavior
attract attention and hell repeat his good
behavior always.
Focus your attention on your dog only when he is
behaving praise him or give him a treat, let him
know that hes getting the attention. If this
technique is used correctly, hell be a
well-behaved dog for a long time to come.
Nevertheless, this approach is probably not for
the short temper and requires you to go through
an endurance ordeal. Imagine your dog chewing up
your sock in your presence. Endure Dude!
You need to be in the correct frame of mind
before you train your dog. Never train your dog
when you are under the influence of alcohol or
drug. Also try not to train him if youve a bad
day or not in the best of your mood.
If youve just argued with your sweetie or got a
telling off from your boss earlier on. You would
most probably take out your frustration on
him and threaten your relationship with him
in future.
Do remember to apply these dog training
principles constantly you'll be half-way
through to successful dog training.
