Dogs need to be programmed correctly, much like a TV remote. The animal and the device are fully capable of producing the desired results, yet something more is needed to take advantage of those functions. Dogs are trainable, they just need a caring person to bring out their good traits.

If you want a well-trained dog, you must be willing to offer generous and appropriate rewards. You should immediately reward your dog when they follow your command. Make sure to give your dog the treats at the proper time, to encourage good behavior.

A healthy diet is important to the health and well-being of your dog. A dog with an unhealthy diet may manifest several symptoms, including sluggishness and poor behavior. It is damaging to their health as well as making them more prone to bad behaviors. Feeding your dog quality food can greatly affect what you accomplish during training sessions.

Make sure that your dog stays awake and active. Almost all dogs have short attention spans. Dogs that lose interest are hard to train. Your dog will pay better attention to commands, as well as play with you more, when he has been exercised properly. You and your dog can run or walk together daily.

It is dangerous to put more than one dog together in a close space. The two chains could get tangled up. This could panic you dogs as he tries to get free and he could potentially hurt himself. If dogs get tangled up too severely, one can get wrapped up so badly it could close off the airway, and he could die.

Treats are necessary when teaching a dog fancy tricks like rolling over. First, make your dog lay down. The next step is to hold a treat close to the floor by the dog’s head then continue to move the treat over his head until you reach the other side. Your dog is probably going to follow the treat in your hand with his nose, which means he will rollover his whole body. As he rolls, state the command “roll over” in a firm tone. Repeat the process until your dog associates the command with the action. It will probably take multiple attempts, but you will be the talk of the town when the trick is learned.

Once someone knows how to train their dog, all they need to do is practice. As much as the owner will be pleased with what the dog has learned, the dog will also be happy.
