You have a dog that you want to use for movies or television commercials. It is extremely important that you have a well trained dog that is also extremely versatile with what it can do. This article will go into specific ways that you can train your dog for the entertainment industry.
Most of the time children and dogs get along wonderfully. Children, however, often tend to mimic what they hear adults doing. Don’t let your young child repetitively give commands to your dog. The dog will learn to disregard the command because they know there will be no repercussions for doing so.
Training doesn’t only happen during designated training sessions. Every time you interact with your pup, you are training him. Make sure to stay consistent in your commands and requests and to continue to reinforce those good behaviors. If you are training him to stay off the couch, don’t let him jump up there while you are watching a show. Stay consistent at all times with what you want him to do and you will see the rewards.
Puppy chewing is a natural and necessary behavior, but it can be redirected. A puppy’s chewing is one way that he explores the environment around him. Provide your puppy with clear leadership and a lot of human interaction and stimulation. Also, provide him with fun chew toys. This will help stop him from chewing on the things that he should not be chewing on.
While training your dog, observe his body language and general behavior closely. Look for signs of enthusiasm. Is his tail wagging? Does he follow you around? This shows he’s ready to learn. If you see your dog is scared, bored or nervous, stop what you are doing and reevaluate.
Feed your dog consistent amounts at approximately the same time every day. This is particularly important during the house training phase of pet ownership. This allows the dog to establish a regular elimination pattern and the discerning owner can use that pattern to their advantage in speedily training their pet.
Make sure to only say the command word one time while training your dog. It is important not to repeat yourself, because your pet will begin to expect you to say the instructions multiple times. You want your dog to respond to your commands as soon as you say them.
All dogs should be taught the basics of obedience training not only to keep them safe but to protect people and other animals to which they are exposed. Start teaching your dog how to sit, stay, heel, come, and understand the word “no” as soon as he is old enough to be trained. Even the calmest dog may unexpectedly start to chase a car, a bike, a cat or a squirrel. Giving the command “no” or “come” should stop the dog in his tracks and prevent him from getting hit by a car or endangering the person or animal he is chasing. Some dogs tend to jump on people as a means of welcoming them, but this could be dangerous to small children or elderly people who aren’t steady on their feet. Telling your dog to “sit” and “stay” eliminates this concern. A well-trained dog not only makes a pleasant companion but also reduces the risk of accidental injury to himself or others.
In conclusion, it is extremely challenging to prepare your dog for the entertainment industry. However, this may pay off in the long run both for popularity of you and your dog as well as financially. Follow the tips and tricks that have been provided in this article and you should see success in training your dog.
