Dog Training Secrets
Every dog and every dog owner has his or her own
unique dog training challenges. Each breed of dog
has a different temperament as does each
individual dog. And dog owners are no different.
Despite the differences, there are some basic
things in common for training all dogs.
No matter why you have a dog, he should
at least have some very elementary dog
training. No one wants a dog who isn't
housebroken, who runs away or into the street,
who won't sit, come or stay when you want him to.
Both you and your dog will be happier with a
little common ground on obedience training.
One of the first things to take into
account when dog training is that dogs are
programmed for a world of leaders and followers.
You have to be the leader in your relationship.
Signs of a leader are absolute consistency. Know
what you want your dog to do and keep that
constant from day to day and training session to
training session. Don't shout. That is a sign
that you have lost control. And keep your dogs
attention focused on you during the entire
training session.
Attention is the second important thing to keep
in mind for dog training and one of the hardest
to maintain. It has been said that ninety percent
of dog training is getting and keeping his
attention. Dogs are very much like small children
and have short attention spans. Keep training
sessions short - 20 minutes is fine, or even a
couple of 10 minute sessions. Work with your dog
in a quiet environment that is free of
distractions. Talk to your dog in a quiet voice.
Use his name and ex plain what you want him to
do. He may understand no more than, "Blah blah
blah, Toby", but your voice will keep him focused
in your direction.
Experts have found that positive dog training is
more effective that a system of rewards and
punishment. A dog who looks forward to
training sessions as fun and full of
rewards is a dog who will learn faster and
better. Reward accomplishments with treats or
words of praise or pats. As your dog learns new
skills, you can reward him for each step along
the way. If he doesn't respond the way you
want, rethink what you are asking him to do and
how you are asking him to do it.
What worked as a dog training method for one dog
may not work as well for the next. Your dog may
need to review some more basic dog training
lessons before going on to new lessons.
Rather than punishment, a stern NO, blocking a
movement with your hands, or withholding rewards
when he doesn't perform, and remaining consistent
are the best ways to encourage your dog to
exhibit the behavior you want. Remember that it
is in his nature (as well as yours) to want to
test limits and see how much he can get away
with. Consistency in dog training and rewards are
what get positive results, not punishments.
Dogs are very much like us. They want to follow
a leader they respect. And dog training is just
like school. They like to do things that are fun
and make them feel good, where they get rewards
for accomplishing what is asked of them. And they
want the same thing their owners want, a happy
and safe relationship with the ones they are
love. A little dog obedience training will go a
long way in making this happen.
