Dogs are some of the most lovable, loyal creatures on this planet. However, they are also some of the most mischievous, disobedient creatures, as well. Do you get tired of finding your shoes, furniture, carpet and many other belongings destroyed by your dog(s)? Do you feel like you have no other choice but to give up on your dog, because he or she will not listen to any command from you? Well, you’re reading the right article. This article discusses some great step-by-step ways to train your dog into behaving properly and obeying your every command. By following these guidelines, your dog will shortly be the perfect household pet!
There are different tricks you can try when you are crate training your dog. If they don’t want to go in the crate, try luring them in with a treat or chew bone. They can see and smell that bone, and they will want in the crate to have it. After your dog goes into the crate, give positive reinforcement to increase the chance that he will go into the crate again.
Don’t ever ignore good behavior from your dog. If they do something good, even if you didn’t ask them to do it, make sure that you reward them for it in some way. If you start to ignore them when they have done something desirable, then they will see no reason to keep doing it.
To train a dog to stop barking you must first train him to bark on command. When the dog barks on command instead of when he chooses to bark, it is easier to teach him to stop barking during the training session. Once he learns the command for “stop barking” he will follow it outside of training.
Dogs often become destructive because they are bored and lonely. Consider a house dog that destroys the sofa while you are away from the house. Consider the larger outside dog that chews up the shrubbery. The answer to alleviating their destructive behavior might be as simple as spending more time with them or buying them a new toy.
Start potty training your new puppy immediately. Take the puppy to the designated toilet area in your garden as soon as he wakes up in the morning, after eating, after a nap, and before bedtime. Choose a certain command that indicates he needs to relieve himself. When he does, don’t forget to praise him highly, and offer a treat as a reward.
Exercise is an important part of any dog’s training program. Animals that are restless and cooped up are more likely to act out and have difficulty following instructions. Taking your dog out for a daily walk or bringing them to a local dog part will help them to be successful.
While dogs can be the best thing to ever happen to you, they can also be one of the most destructive things also. Dogs may have a mind of their own, but as discussed previously in this article, they have a soft spot for their owners. Being that dogs have this soft spot, it is quite easy to train them. If you strictly follow the aforementioned tips and tricks to successfully training your dog, you will never think about getting rid of your dog again!
