Often dogs are adopted by owners who don’t fully contemplate owning a pet. Dogs require commitment from its owners. If your dog is trained, he will be much less likely to run into problems or display aggression. If your adopted dog needs training, keep reading.
If you plan on using a crate as part of your puppy’s training routine, introduce the apparatus and its’ functions very gradually. Allow them to feel comfortable in their crate by closing the door and feeding them treats while praising them. Start off small, like 10 seconds at a time, and slowly move up the times. Freaking out your dog is a sign that you need to slow down.
Use control to acknowledge positive behavior while training. When your dog obeys your command, try to keep them calm as you give them their reward. Though you may be happy with the accomplishment, excitement on your part leads to excitement on their part and diminishes control of the situation. Stay calm and the dog will stay calm, and you’ll be able to reward it.
Ensure your dogs are active and getting a lot of exercises. Boredom often befalls an inactive dog, or he may find himself in a “mutt rut” with a dull and listless routine. Not to mention that a bored dog is going to be more stubborn during training. Your dogs will obey more quickly if you keep them well exercised. Bring your dog along when you walk or jog.
You must stay consistent while you are crate training young puppies. As soon as the puppy is out of the crate, let them have an opportunity to go outside and relieve themselves. Eventually, the puppy will learn to wait to pee until given the opportunity.
You should never tether two dogs in close proximity to one another. The restraints for each dog can become tangled and in an effort to free themselves, they can be injured. Situations like this can cause dogs of various sizes to cause fatal injuries if not properly monitored. Always err on the side of caution.
When approaching a dog you’ve never met, approach them slowly and offer them the back of a hand to smell. This gives the dog a chance to become accustomed to your personal scent and shows him you mean no harm. As the dog begins to trust you, he will more likely follow your commands.
Disciplined leash walking is very important in training your dog. This helps keep both you and your dog safe when going on walks.
No matter how long you have owned your dog, you can always train them. It is important to act as quickly as possible before the dog causes harm to someone because they do not know any better.
