Although you love your puppy, there may be times when you become frustrated. With pets, it’s a bit more difficult to instill this appreciation for your property — especially if it appears particularly tasty to your dog. The article below has tips and tips that can help you curb your dog’s behavior.
When you speak to your dog in the correct tone of voice, this is the best way to train your dog. Commands, corrections and praise should all have their own tone in order to help your dog distinguish cause and effect with his and your behavior. Speak sharply and firmly, and be louder when correcting.
As soon as your dog is bad, discourage the behavior right away. Say “no” firmly. Do not yell or strike your dog with your hand or some other object. Always correct bad behavior as soon as it occurs. Your dog will quickly forget what it did. Waiting will only confuse the dog.
If you’re going to allow your dog the chance to go bathroom inside, make sure there is a dedicated area for this. Always keep potty pads in that area, and change them regularly.
A helpful bit of training advice is to be aware of your dog’s taste preferences. Your dog will be more likely to respond to your training efforts when the food reward is something he likes. Pay close attention to his response after you offer a reward.
Your dog is going to learn best when it is surrounded by positive thinking. Always give your dog some sort of reward when it behaves according to your direction. Using punishment and negative training techniques will only make the dog afraid of you and less likely to want to please its master.
Keeping your dog mentally engaged will ensure your pet stays healthy and happy. Giving your dog fun toys and treats such as Kong Toys or Busy Bones is a great way to keep them happy. You should also walk them on a regular basis so that they can get out any pent up energy. Stimulate your dog, or he will become bored and do destructive things.
Try not to reinforce bad behaviors from your dog. Don’t give praise or treats to your dog if it does something wrong. For instance, don’t pat your dog on the head if it’s jumping up on you.
Stay firm when you are training your dog. You should not be extremely strict or loving all the time. Find a balance on gentle firmness to use with your dog. Doing so improves the relationship between you two.
You can show your dog to ‘sit’, just hold a dog biscuit in the air. Move the treat just above the dog’s head, moving a hand behind the dog. He will automatically stretch his head backwards to follow the treat. Naturally, the dog will sit in order to see upward.
Teach your dog no response is needed for the word ‘no’. If you are training a pet, find a positive way to reward them. Saying the word “no” will not aid in the training of your dog. Tailor training your dog to suit the dog and the situation.
In summary, you have to prevent your dog from negative behavior. Your dog, then, will be less likely to be injured, and you will not be as frustrated (plus you’ll save money). Try to use these hints and tricks and you can have a good and healthy pet.
