Congratulations on your new pet! What happens now? Proper training will make the time spent with your pet much more enjoyable. Read these tips to find out how you can train your dog efficiently.
You can try a little bit of ingenuity if you are going with crate training for your indoor dog or puppy. To get a hesitant dog enthusiastic about getting in a crate, put a tempting treat like a fresh chew toy inside and close it up while your dog is outside. Temptation wins with this exercise; your dog will be eager to enter the crate when a treat is waiting for him. After he goes in the crate, reward him with praise and a treat.
Giving your dog proper treats is the best way to train. It is important that you provide the right amount of treats at the correct times. A dog doesn’t always know when it’s being rewarded if they don’t get a treat at the proper time.
When your dog behaves well in a training session, reward him in a calm manner. Reward them only when your dog is calm after it performs a trick. While you might be happy with this accomplishment, your excitement plus theirs can cause this situation to get out of control. Remain calm, expect the dog to be calm and provide appropriate rewards.
Do not tie a dog up near another dog, or dogs. It is possible for the chains to become intertwined, and the animals can be hurt as they try to get free. If the dogs are different sizes, it could be even worse. A small dog could easily choke to death if it were to get too tangled up with a larger breed.
Establish a verbal cue to let your dog know when a command has been carried out to your satisfaction. For example, using the word “yes” can let your dog know they can retrieve their reward.
Both the dog and owner are happier when the dog is well-trained. Using the ideas presented here, you have what you need to start today with training your dog.
