Bringing a new dog or puppy into the home is a time of excitement and joy. In the weeks that follow, that joy can turn into frustration. You may be exasperated as you are picking up after another mess your dog made. You can relive the happiness you had when you first taught your new puppy to behave. We can show you how to do this if you read this article.
Use small steps when training a dog or pup to get into a crate, so that they can become familiar with it. Once your puppy feels comfortable in the open crate, close the door and offer the dog a treat. At first, only close the gate for a short time, then gradually extend the time as your dog becomes more comfortable. If the dog becomes overwhelmed, it means that you are moving too quickly for them.
House training should be built around a regular bathroom schedule. To keep your puppies toiletry habits regular, feed him a high quality food 2-3 times a day at the same time each day. This way, you will have a good idea of when your pup needs to go out, so that there is less of a chance that an accident will occur.
Teaching any dog how to roll over can be pretty easy. Make sure you’ve got a few tasty treats handy before beginning. The first step is to get the dog to lay down. Next, hold the treat close to the floor near its head, and bring it up over the dog’s head as you place it on the other side. As the dog uses his nose to track the morsel, he will simultaneously roll his entire body over. As he is rolling over, give the “roll over” command, and do this repeatedly until he can roll over with just the command and without the treat. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it’s a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.
You should train your dog to walk properly on his leash. This is important for both the dog’s safety, and your own.
Training should begin with the easier commands. This will be great for immediate gratification, and your dog will begin to understand what you expect along the way. You will see more results as you are training this way.
You can continue to train your dog as they age. Canine training does not stop once your dog is no longer a puppy. When you work with your dog consistently to produce the best behaviors, you help your dog to remain healthy and happy. Discipline will keep him in line.
Create a specific command to stop your dog when it barks. Present the dog with a treat and say the command, stopping only when the dog ceases to bark. Only give them the treat when they obey the command. If you repeat this long enough, your dog will associate the treat and then the order with being quiet.
Patience, commitment and love go into training your dog success. The tips you just read will help you establish a positive relationship with your dog. Change doesn’t happen right away, but consistency will make your house a happier and calmer place.
