A cute little dog or puppy can creep into the heart and life of many people. When you buy a new puppy, you’re in for a lot of work! A well trained pet is key to a successful relationship. Your pet will understand how it is expected to behave, and you will feel confident in that fact, so that you can trust your pet when you are home with it or out at work. Read on for great tips on developing a good working relationship with your dog.
Your dog should know when calm time is to be had. It is nice to calmly play with your dogs, but remember to stay relaxed. If you do not recognize them right away, they will be more calm.
To ensure success, you must ensure that the crate you are using is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. Don’t forget, your puppy will grow. Choose a crate that works both for puppy and mature sizes. Your dog needs to have the room to get around the crate and not feel cramped.
To have success in puppy training, you need to be able to control it with commands. If the dog does not understand that you have control he will ignore your commands and act with outright disobedience. In practice, this means that you should walk ahead when walking your dog, for instance, rather than allowing him or her to take the lead.
If you want to be a good trainer, then you have to be firm and consistent. However, this doesn’t mean you should always yell at your dog, rather try and find a middle-ground that you can work with. This approach helps to reinforce your relationship with the animal.
If you want to make sure your dog will behave throughout life, it’s important that you always train them. You should not stop training your dog at the end of their puppy stage. If you provide positive reinforcement for desirable behaviors, your dog will continue to be obedient, and when you provide your dog with consistent discipline, negative behaviors are less likely to occur.
Your relationship with your pet will surely be improved by applying the tips you just learned. Learn the above techniques and begin using them today. You love your dog and want the best for all involved. Successful pet ownership means taking the time to train your pet. Keep your pet well trained. Congrats on your new companion!
