Train your dog.
Well in terms of dog training it may seem pretty easy especially if you becoming a trainer for the first time and you are training your first dog.
It may seem an easy job but the reality is that actually, it is a big project especially when you go step by step.
Well, don’t worry, I bring you some easy and helpful tips for your dog training.
How to start your dog training and when?
Honestly, dog training can be started at any age, But I will recommend you to train your dog in his early stages of life. You can start dog training your puppy as soon as he settled with you and your family. You can train your old dog, although some dogs may be less keen or you can say they couldn’t get your point that easily you need to work hard with them.
Training will be fun, both for you and for your dog. Some planning and little hard work will make your dog well-behaved and effortless companion. It is very very important to develop and teach house discipline from the very first day. Be sure to install good manners from the very first day you bring your new puppy or dog to a home.
For effective and best results your dog training must contain positive rewards.
Because I believe that if you reward something your dog loves to eat or to play with as soon as he does what you command, he will definitely like it to obey your command again to get his reward again and it will give you best results. Rewards can be anything depends on your dog what he likes. It can be a food reward it can be a toy anything your dog love to achieve.
However, really tasty rewards usually work best. You can try anything like Hotdog sausage, dried liver, chicken, and cheese for good work. One thing you need to know if you are using food rewards then you will need to reduce your dog normal meal size to prevent your dog from extra weight.
Always try to use some verbal praises like “Good boy”,” Good dog”, when giving him rewards. While teaching your new command it will need to reward your dog continuously and every that he does what you command correctly.
3. Punishment in dog training?
Well in terms of dog punishment I will recommend you to never punish your dog. Beware of punishment while training your dog cause your aggressive behavior will also teach aggression to your dog. You can easily spoil your dog by using harsh treatments. Too much punishment might turn your dog into an aggressive dog and Naughty Dog.
However, the dogs who usually got punished while dog training showed some negative emotions and kind of fear in them. Well, If your dog acts like a misbehave or something you don’t like, don’t punish him for that cause your punishment will never work,
People ask what should I do then? If punishment doesn’t work. let me tell you, All you need to do is you need to work little harder with your dog make him convince not harshly but with rewards with toys with food that your dog love, believe me, he can be your best buddy.
Crate training, Well, why do people use crate training?
I think the primary use of a crate is to train your dog in the house.
The crate is your dog den where your dog lives and fell safe, fell comfort and raise a family.
Some cautions about crate
- Don’t let your dog for too long in the crate. Because of all time inside the crate your dog can be depressed.
