Hooray! Okay, but now what? You and your new dog will both be happier if he is well trained. This article has lots of helpful advice about training your dog.
Get your dog chew toys to get rid of teething pains. Replace the item immediately with one of the dog’s own chew toys. If painful teething is the problem, let the puppy chew on a wet washcloth that has been frozen.
You have to be consistent with the crate training of your new puppy. When you allow the puppy to come out of the crate, you have to immediately and without fail give him the chance to relieve his bladder. As he gets older, he will gain greater control of his bodily functions, making it easier to control himself.
Training your pet to roll over very easy. Just remember to have treats in hand. First, have your pet to lay down. Then, use the treat to draw his head from one side to the other. He should roll his body over while following the treat. When he rolls over, you should say “roll over,” and repeat the process until the command is all he needs to do so. Never become frustrated if it does not happen right away. Once he does learn how, he will be a celebrity among other dogs.
Let any dog you approach sniff your hand first so he can smell you. The dog will become familiar with your smell and recognize the scent in the future. As the dog begins to trust you, he will more likely follow your commands.
You should never do long sessions of training. By keeping the sessions short you will be able to hold your dog’s attention. If you want to train more, make sure to include play breaks for your dog.
Be certain to maintain consistency in training. If there are several trainers, ensure that they are all being consistent with rewards and commands. Use the same phrases and commands in every training session with your dog to avoid confusion.
When it comes to training a puppy, it is not a good idea to provide too much information and training at one time. A puppy only has short bursts of energy and doesn’t have a long attention; you’ve got to keep your training sessions positive and short. Overdoing it could cause them to forget what was learned, and they may see the training as negative; thus, making sessions harder for you later.
When you go out with your dog, always pay attention to other dogs and animals you come across. You have no idea how well trained the other dog is. If you come across an aggressive dog, make sure to steer your own dog clear of it.
Both owners and dogs are happy when the dog is well trained. With the information here, you are on your way to successfully training your dog.
