Is there anything worse?

You wake up in the morning the sun is shining and its another beautiful day. You come out of your bedroom and discover your puppy rolling around in his poo! Hmmm.

Its everywhere.

It’s going to be 30-45 minute clean up minimum. You’re going to be running late today for sure.

Is there anything more frustrating?

You take your puppy or 1 year old dog outside to pee-pee. After they go pee-pee, you return inside. Within seconds of coming inside your dog decides to continue with a little sprinkle all over your new rug.

Aaggghh!

Surely toilet training a puppy or a dog should not take this long or be so hard?

You’re right. It shouldn’t and it isn’t. The thing is this…

There’s no magic wand but there are a heap of little tricks that will turn your puppy’s toileting around and you are probably not using most of them.

The crazy thing is that most people don’t do any of these things because they have never been told exactly what to do. Nobody has ever explained how important these little things are when you are toilet training your puppy.

And they are all simple and all logical. So let me point you in the right direction with a couple of them so you can get the idea and then I’ll tell you about the most awesome toilet training resource that I found for those of you who are interested.

1. Staying calm:

Firstly the thing that you have to accept is that you are responsible. Like training a young child or baby to use a potty. You can’t blame them for not being toilet trained and take your frustrations out on them.

In fact, it can really set you back. Becoming angry, shouting at your puppy, being annoyed will do nothing to encourage them to relax and follow your commands to toilet outside!

Imagine trying to go to the toilet with an angry frustrated person standing there staring at you!

So all of that rubbish about rubbing a dog’s nose in it to show them not to do it again, is simply old school and so out of date. People who do this sort of stuff have completely missed the point.

Think about it…

Why do you think your puppy pee-peed in the house?

Because they needed to go. Right?

They were holding on, probably bursting, needed to go and so they thought, “OK, I gotta go pee-pee…like NOW!”

And if the door was shut as well, then what do you expect?

Your puppy is not vindictive, or trying to wind you up.

So when you rub your puppies nose in it…they are still not sure where they are supposed to go.

Repeat…They are still not sure where they are supposed to go.

Got it yet?

So when you start telling your puppy off for going pee-pee in front of the couch all you are doing is telling your puppy that this is not the right place. Try somewhere else…

But…

“They are still not sure where they are supposed to go!”

That’s right. You need to show them. You need to train them. That’s why its called toilet training.

2. Stay focused on the goal:

Its odd that the biggest mistake that people make with toilet training is the most important one. Most people take their eye off the goal too soon and start telling poor puppy off when they get it wrong. The secret is this…

Keep rewarding your puppy with amazing treats every time they go toilet in the right place…

That’s right. Every single time. With amazing treats. For a long time!

Nothing will motivate your puppy faster than rewarding them with a couple of amazing tasting little treats immediately after they have finished.

Notice I say immediately. Not 30 seconds later… It should be within 2 seconds. Too late and the connection to the pee-pee they just did will be lost. Get your treat in their mouth quick and they will very quickly start to link the two.

The Ah-Ha moment is when your puppy thinks… “So if I pee-pee on the grass you give me the most amazing treat?” “OK…Deal!”

Unfortunately most of us will reward for a week or two and then stop. We forget, get bored, run out of treats or can be bothered.

One little tip I heard on a great 40 minute toilet training audio the other day is to leave a jar with treats outside by the pee-pee area so that even if you forget to take treats out with you there are already some at hand.

3. It does take time

Remember that puppies are still young and small. They are still learning and it will take time. Anyone with young children will tell you…

Toilet training takes TIME and PATIENCE! Sometimes 3 years or more for young children.

Think about this for a second.

How old is your puppy? 16 weeks! Children can’t even lift their own heads at that age and we become frustrated that our puppy isn’t perfectly toilet trained by that age…

So take a breath and relax. The good news is that you can do it and your puppy is perfectly normal.

So focus on the successes and learn to quickly put the mistakes behind you. It’s great learning for life. Look to see what you could have done differently but don’t beat yourself up. We’ve all been there and the good news is that its not forever.

4. The rug

This is just a little tip I heard from that toilet training audio file I mentioned earlier that I’ll tell you about in a second. It made me smile because it is exactly what happens all the time.

Here’s the scenario…

Your puppy finds a nice thick piece of rug that is not the carpet. The rug feels nice, a bit like grass and looks like it is a good place to go pee-pee. They go pee-pee or even worse poo-poo!

Unfortunately for you it is your brand new, thick, white, shag pile rug and its very hard to get the stains and smell out of.

Even when carefully cleaned, your puppy can still smell the pee and poo and so now it even smells like a good place to go. Before long your beautiful expensive shag pile rug is a very costly toilet mat.

They secret is simple. Pick it up and put it back down in 6 months time in perfect condition. No stains, no marks, no regrets. Trust me on the shag pile rug. Do not take the chance! It is a very slippery slope.

5. Knowledge is everything:

When it comes to toilet training there really are so many things to think about and you will simply not think of them all on your own. You need to be told the secrets before your toileting goes pear-shaped.

And the best place that I have found by far to get hold of all the tips about dog and puppy training including toilet training is Doggy Dan’s website The Online Dog Trainer.

Inside the site are over 250 videos including a whole section with an amazing 40 minute recording on toilet training your puppy. It’s fantastic and covers off everything that you could possibly want to know.

Here’s a couple of tips to give you an idea of what’s inside.

– Those tricky times. What to do during the night and when you are at work to prevent accidents. How long to leave them and what to leave them with.

– Setting your puppy up to win so that they can’t make mistakes.

– Why some older puppy’s regress at 4 months old and why you need to get them back on track immediately.

– Older dogs. Why much older dogs who are several years old can suddenly start going toilet in the house and what to do to stop it.

– Habit Breaking. How to break an old habit if your puppy is toileting all over the house.

– Crate training. Everything you need to know about crate training your puppy if you choose to use that approach.

Plus all the tips, and advice on every topic to do with toilet training such as cleaning up the mess, feeding, watering and toilet frequency and schedules.

So that’s all for now. As you can see it’s a big topic. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this and that you get a handle on your puppy’s toileting sooner rather than later.

If you really are struggling and want to end all the frustration immediately then I strongly suggest you take a look at Doggy Dan’s site The Online Dog Trainer and check out the Toilet Training section inside the site.

How To Stop Your Dog Pulling On The Leash

Who currently has a weak or sore shoulder from their dog pulling them and yanking them down the street?

Me, me, me, I hear you cry! There are literally millions of people who have to endure their walk with their dog rather than enjoy it.

So why not train your dog to walk by your side without pulling once and then enjoy every walk without any hassle!

Make sense? And the great thing is its not complicated! As with most things worth mastering it can take a little time, but not always. Sometimes it can be a 5 minute turnaround as expert Dog Trainer, Doggy Dan, demonstrates in his video CLICK HERE.

But let me first talk you through some of the really key mistakes that people are making when walking their dog.

Now as I mentioned earlier there are many tricks to walking your dog on the leash correctly so that they walk beside you. And if you have a determined dog, (and they come in both big and small size) you may well need to know all of them before you can master the walk.

But generally speaking, the tips I am about to give you now will really help… So lets get cracking and get into the training.

The most important thing to remember is to keep your dog calm. If your dog is charged up like a raging bull as you head out of the garden gate, like the one in the video then getting them to walk calmly on the leash is going to be a lot harder than if they are calm.

So how do we calm them down? I hear you cry…

Alright, alright, I’m getting to it…

1. Calming your dog down.

Think about your build up to leaving the house. You bring out the leash and BANG! Your sleeping beauty becomes a rocket. They jump up, tail wagging, racing around demanding that you put the leash on them. Now if you simply oblige and put the leash on them they get even more excited!

The reason is simple. You are reinforcing their excited behavior with a reward, the lead. So this behavior gets more and more extreme. They become more excited not less excited.

The same thing is happening as your dog drags you towards the front door, barging their way through first and then pulls you down the garden path. All of this is getting your dog more and more excited. They will be at bursting point when you get onto the path!

So next time you take your dog for a walk, take your time. Pick up the leash and then wait for your dog to calm down. That’s right. Simply carry on doing what you were doing and ignore your dog’s antics. If they don’t calm down simply put the leash away or put it on a table.

This may take a little while, several attempts or quite a long period, but your dog will eventually calm. When they are calm you can try again and repeat until they are totally relaxed as you attach the leash.

This process can be repeated all the way until you are on the path ready to start your walk. Either wait calmly with your dog on the leash until they are calm before progressing or take the leash off and postpone the walk for a few minutes.

It may seem like you’re getting nowhere fast but better to take some time getting this sorted now or you’re going to be dragged around the streets for the next 10 years. The issue will not “self correct”.

Now step two is a simple exercise that involves you turning around when your dog pulls ahead.

2. Change direction

Before you start your walk look at which way your dog is trying to head. If they want to go right, then you turn left. Take a step to the left and repeat this until they are actually taking notice of what you are doing.

On a bigger scale you could simply change direction and go the other way when your dog starts to pull ahead.

Make sure you do this early, don’t wait till your dog is miles out in front. By doing this exercise your dog ends up behind you every time. Again it can take a little time but your dog will get it.

3. Chose an appropriate device

Take a look at some of the different types of devices available to assist you in getting your dog to heel. In the video you can see Doggy Dan using a very special harness where the attachment is under the dogs chin. This is totally different to a traditional harness where the attachment is on the back and the dogs end up pulling like a cart horse.

4. Remember the pack leader leads…

On the walk the pack leader leads from the front. So if you are not the pack leader in your dogs eyes they will really fight for that spot at the front. Its as simple as that. You can’t cheat a dog, especially the strong minded determined ones! Learning to become the pack leader is topic all on it’s own, and is the basis of Doggy Dan’s world-famous training method. He’s developed 5 Golden Rules, which when followed daily, help you become the pack leader in a calm and gentle way. On his video website The Online Dog Trainer, he points out that before any training takes place, you first need to establish yourself as the leader using the 5 rules – and stresses that this is really important in solving almost all dog behavior problems.

5. Lots of extra tips

As I mentioned earlier there are heaps of other tips and tricks such as knowing how and when to give the leash a little pull without going over the top. Understanding when and where to let your dog have some freedom and go sniff and pee pee (after all that’s the point of going for a dog walk isn’t it!)

If you would like to master the walk today then look no further than Doggy Dan’s website The Online Dog Trainer, with over 250 videos. It really is simply the best dog training site around. There are currently 7 excellent videos on how to walk your dog correctly showing you how to deal with every issue and question you may have. And there’s even a 30 minute audio inside the site – so you can listen while you walk!

Everybody wants to enjoy their dog and that includes walking them, so don’t put up with it any longer!

And remember your dog will also be glad when the pulling stops and they can walk calmly by your side!

How To Raise The Perfect Dog

There’s a lot of talk about how to raise the perfect dog. It’s what we all want but the question is… do they exist?

I suppose the answer is a bit like… is there a perfect person? Of course, the answer to that is… Nope!

However there are some pretty great people out there, and there are some really amazing dogs too. So what’s the trick?

This is my best advice.

Before you get hung up about going to puppy school and learning how to do high-fives, roly-polies and the commando crawl, ask yourself this…

Is this what my dream dog does? Is my dream dog basically a performing monkey whom I wheel out when visitors come around so they can say “Wow that’s cool, how clever is he…How did you train him to do that…” and so on and so forth.

The kicker is that in many of these cases the next thing that the dog owner has to do is warn the visitors “Now…don’t go near his food bowl when he’s eating, and careful when you pat him not to go near his head, and keep the children away from his toys..!”

It’s crazy isn’t it?

We spend so much time and effort focusing on how to do commands such as sit and stay but never even think about some of the really important stuff. And when we do it’s often too late.

Want to know why this is so?

Because most dog trainers are stuck doing what everyone else is doing…

And that’s training the sit, the down and the stay! That’s right. Its like sheep, everyone following each other and nobody asking WHY

Think about it… has a dog ever been put to sleep (yes, I am talking about euthanized) because they didn’t do a proper sit? Or because their down command was a bit slow? Or because they had a poor stay? Of course not… nobody really cares about that stuff.

Yet that’s what we all learn at puppy school! WHY?!

But… Aggression? Oh Boy.

More dogs are put to sleep for aggression, barking, growling, and challenging than any other reason. Aggressive to children, owners, strangers – its all bad news.

There is nothing more dangerous than an out of control dog, pulling you along on the leash, ignoring you when you let them off. Never mind the danger to themselves around cars and other dogs.

Yet so few dog trainers show you how to prevent all of this, because very few actually understand it themselves!

Most people’s real idea of a perfect dog, in no particular order, will include all of the following 5 important behaviors:

  1. Calm around all other animals including dogs
  2. Friendly to all people including children
  3. Relaxed and obedient around the home
  4. Amazing at coming when called at the park
  5. A real angel when walking on the leash in public

Hhmmm… I can hear you thinking….You’ve got a point!

Let me guess your next question…

So how do we achieve it?

Well the great news is that it’s not complicated. At least it’s not complicated or tricky anymore… all thanks to Doggy Dan’s The Online Dog Trainer video website.

Inside his website is the most amazing collection of videos showing you exactly how to achieve this kind of ‘perfect’ dog. In fact Doggy Dan shows you through the video diary of 8 week old puppy Moses, guiding you through every stage of achieving all the things I’ve just mentioned.

Doggy Dan has filmed his puppy growing up for an entire year and presented a series of lessons each week that need to learned at that particular stage of the puppy’s life. So you get to watch and train your puppy at exactly the right time, making sure problems don’t manifest later on.

And once your dog is fully grown the site caters for every type of dog problem that you may face later on. In-depth sections on health, food, behavior and training are covered as well.

Doggy Dan’s site is truly amazing with over 250 videos inside. Showing you exactly how to achieve those 5 important behaviors I mentioned earlier… and much, much more!

How To Master Dog Training

Dogs are no doubt man’s best friends. They are definitely fun to be with and make great companions. Sometimes, they are even considered as part of the family. It certainly feels great to be walking with a dog around either just within the neighborhood or along the beach. But if you happen to have a dog as worse as Marley, the dog in the movie “Marley and Me”, perhaps you’re more stressed than the usual because of your dog’s naughtiness. But why live up with a dog like Marley if you can turn your pet into a well-trained dog? The solution –master dog training. Here are some steps on how to do it:

First, be considerate. You have to remember that a dog is an animal, so unlike humans, it has shorter attention span. You may be able to get its attention now, but a couple of minutes or so it will go back to what it finds interesting. So, try to put yourself into its situation and imagine how frustrating it could be to undergo a dog training class instead of doing more fun activities. Take note that most animals are trained easily when given treats before the training. So, before you enroll your pet in a dog training class, prepare some really good treats as rewards.

Next, be consistent. It is not good to give your pet so many instructions at the same time or worse, give up on teaching it a trick just because it is not able to get it at first. Try to be very consistent in such a way that you will start with the easiest command first like the “sit” command before going for more difficult ones. Once it learned the “sit” command, proceed to others like the “stay” or “come” command.

When giving instructions, make sure that you repeat them from time to time until your dog realizes and understands what you are trying to communicate. Again, do not give too many instructions at once for this will confuse your pet more. Take your time. Now, once your pet learned the trick that you’ve been teaching, give a reward or treat and make sure that you review the trick before jumping into another.

And lastly, of course, be the boss. It is important that your pet recognizes you as its leader; otherwise you’ll end up having a dog that is as hardheaded as Marley. Once your pet recognizes you as the boss, it will be easier for you to make it follow your commands. However, you have to remember that being the boss does not necessarily mean that you have to be harsh to your dog whenever it fails to follow your instructions. Be gentle as possible because this is the most effective way to gain dog training.

Mastering dog training is not as difficult as you think, right? With all these steps in mind, you are off to a successful dog training training. Remember: be considerate, be consistent, and be the boss.

How To Choose The Best Dog Training School

Who doesn’t want a well behaved dog? This can be achieved by no other than dog training training. However, having your pet trained the right way may not be that easy for you. You may have a very busy schedule or you simply don’t have the patience to pull things over. Thus, your ordeal is solved because there are numerous schools that can handle your pet very well.

When you take a walk at the park or just within your neighborhood, you surely have seen those pet owners who are problematic with their unruly dogs. Sometimes, you experience losing your patience because your pet just would not budge despite the commands you have given him. Or it could be that your dog goes wild and feels agitated whenever he sees people or other dogs. Such is a major problem that you have to face.

Well, don’t feel flustered and resigned. There is an immediate solution which you may turn to. That is by enrolling him in a dog training school. You can always hire a professional trainer who has the ample expertise to communicate with your pet and have him all focused to listen. The basic commands can be learned and of course be responded to. Proper training will therefore make things easier for you and your dog.

So, how do you choose the school for your dog? Here are some noteworthy steps to take into account.

Choosing an training school for dogs is like that of picking the right school where to send your kids to. Of course, there are several dog schools that make up the list and what you must do is to narrow down your choices. It is important that you select the best one and researching will help you cast your decision.

The first step to take is to make a research. What are the best dog schools in your area? List them down.

Then, find out the feedbacks that clients have for those dog schools.

Ask around for referrals. Your friends or relatives may have already sent their pets to any of these dog training schools.

Call up the administrators. Find out the programs offered and inquire about some facts.

Of course, you need to visit the “campus” itself. See for yourself if there are proper sets of equipment and the likes. It is also the best chance to get to see if the trainers look reliable in handling your pet.

Talk to the trainers and ask around the methods that they use. Be sure to bring along your dog so it can have an immediate feel of the place. You may also see if he is comfortable with the trainer.

Your dog is not merely a guard but should be treated more like a companion. Thus, he needs the proper dog training so you will be more comfortable having him around you. Plus, you don’t have to worry about him hurting other people or animals. A well trained dog is a pleasant pet. So, choose the right dog training school for him now!

The Key To Dog Obedience Training

For most people, dog obedience training is a difficult process. Well, it could be if you don’t know the proper way to do it. Take note that it can also be stressful on the part of your dog and therefore the speed of his learning process will totally depend on how you execute the training.

Dog Obedience Training Defined

The human-dog relationship is something that needs to be enhanced. You should have a healthy relationship in the household so that both of you will feel secured. This training covers a lot of techniques and among them are positive reinforcement, clicker training, dog whispering, collar and leash, marker training, reward training, and a lot others. Whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a professional, the main goals should be achieved.

The main goals that have to be attained during the training include a clear line of communication between you and your pet, strengthen your ties, and spend more quality time with each other. Most behavioral problems such as digging, chewing, excessive barking, jumping up, and many others are likewise resolved through proper training.

So, if you really want to have a dog that you can be proud of look no further, simply take a tour inside Doggy Dan’s site here: CLICK HERE!

The training itself is composed of boundaries or rules which aim to educate your dog to become a responsible member of your household and be in control of his behavior. Basically, he will not be solely confined at home. There will be times when he will be taken out for a walk and it will not help if he will be unruly. Like human beings, dogs should be taught good manners. He should know how to properly behave in certain situations, at any given place, and at any given time.

The Benefits of obedience training

Training the dog to be obedient is one prime way to enjoy the company of your dog and one that will surely benefit you in the years to come. Here are a couple of advantages that you will definitely be happy about.

The training will make life simple for your dog. It means his confusions will be eliminated and he will be more aware of his good and bad behavior.

It is a rewarding experience. During the training, your dog will have fun learning. If you will do it by yourself, it is likewise your best chance to spend quality time with him.

A trained dog is a confident and happy dog. He is then a pleasurable creature to have around.

The dog will have more freedom. A trained dog can be left alone unsupervised because you are confident he will not be causing nuisance in your place.

A dog that has gone through obedience training is safer. He will not threaten other people and animals around him.

You will be able to respect your dog just like a true family member and companion.

Overall, the dog obedience training process may take time and it requires you to be really patient at all times. So always be consistent and don’t fall short of rewards and praises as well as punishments whenever necessary.

Dog Training And Socialization

It is fun to keep a pet at home but it also calls for a couple of obligations to fulfill. Take note that what your dog does is always out of habit. Thus, if you tolerate his bad habits, he will not be able to outgrow them. It will be you who will suffer in the end. So, it is best to start early with the dog training lessons.

Puppies are but young and don’t have a mind of their own. They are simply dependent on you so it is your task to assist them let go of their bad habits and develop the good ones. You and your leadership skills will therefore guide your dog towards the right path in terms of honing his behavior, habits, and temperament. This is the main reason why dog training and socialization trainings are very much necessary.

Training Your Dog at Home

Separation anxiety often attacks young dogs. So, they normally cry, bark, chew, and do a lot of annoying things. You have to understand that it is also hard for him to adjust to his new environment. Thus, you should start with the house training activities by setting boundaries, introducing new areas, and letting him know those activities that you can tolerate and not.

Don’t be violent when your dog doesn’t seem to understand at once. Potty training, leash training, and the likes are never achieved overnight. You have to use lots of praises, rewards, and encouragement. It is always best to start as soon as possible so his old ways will be corrected. Incorporate fun sessions during the training. Use commands frequently. Whenever necessary, impose a punishment but not something that will agitate him and cause him to fight back. Say for example you didn’t like his behavior, simply ignore him. He will surely try getting your attention but be stern not until he does what he is told.

Leaning the Socialization Skills

The dog’s socialization period is said to fall in his first 16 weeks of puppyhood. It is the time when he develops into an adult dog. Therefore, you must expect that it is also the time frame when he changes his temperament, behavior, habits, and character. The socialization period is also the time that he gets adjusted to his family and the people in the household.

It is best to let him become familiar with the house and the people around. It helps to expose him to some animals too. This conditions him that it is not only him that exists in that area. Take him out for a walk so he will see what lies beyond the gates of your home. In this way, he will not go wild whenever he sees other objects, animals, and people apart from the members of his family.

During the dog training and socialization training, you should arm yourself with a doze of patience. Your pet lacks maturity so it is your own responsibility to handle the matter really well. He imitates what he sees so you better act accordingly.

Basic Commands For Dog Training

Are you bored with your dog who knows only three commands? Don’t fret, my friend! You could probably use a little jazz. Specific command words are not that difficult and important. The thing here should be the consistency of its usage. My friend, Wiki, here can give you a bit of a blast. Some of these certain commands are accepted as standard, while others are commonly used.

Here is a list you might find quite interesting:

Let us start off with the basic commands

1.) Sit – it is a mono-syllabic word that requires a bit of an authentic tone that would require for your dog to be in a sitting position.

2.) Down – just like #1, this also requires an abrupt tone for the dog to be typically down when its elbows (front feet) and hocks (rear legs) are touching the ground or floor.

3.) Heel – The dog’s head or shoulder is parallel to the handler’s leg on the left side of the handler.

4.) Come or Here – (referred to as the recall) you just really got to call your dog which equates the whole command.

5.) Stay – another command that requires another snap for the dog to remain in the sitting position (sit, down, stand), and location under which the command was given until it is released by the handler

Those were just some of the basic ones, but wait! Here is something for those who are too hungry to actually stop. The advanced commands are the following (which may need more patience and dedication):

1.) Stop – Wiki says that the dog commanded will simply stop whatever it is doing, and lie down on command no matter how far it is from its keeper is a dog that can be taken anywhere. Some handlers use the German word PLATZ (related to place, i.e. stay in position) for this action. A little bit demanding, but who knows when your dogs needs it.

2.) Back up – keepers of large dogs or dogs with reputation (a must quote!) for aggressiveness can make strangers more comfortable by teaching the dog to back up on command. This command might probably be very useful for police dogs.

3.) Growl – now this is what you guys should be talking about. In case you are bullied, this is the inverse of backing up. Some owners teach non-aggressive dogs to growl on a subtle command –not the word “growl”, just usually a small hand gesture –as a way of letting strangers know that you and your dog value being left alone.

4.) Steady – to keep near by. The dog can walk free, but not dash off. This can be very valuable to sport dogs, and/or during competitions.

5.) Stand – on this command, the dog stands still. Funny how this is seems so advanced; it is very valuable for “grooming”. Many dogs are groomed frequently, that they need to stand quietly during the process. You can also use this when you want your dog to wait for you at the park, while lining up for an espresso at Starbucks seven in the morning.

6.) Go to bed, kennel, or get in – this command directs the dog to go to its bed, and remain there unreleased. This is somehow useful to keep a dog out from underfoot, and safe in a busy or complicated situation.

7.) Drop or Drop it – to release something they just picked up; very useful when they’re about to chew your sandals off.

8.) Leave it – an adjunction to Drop, directing the dog NOT to touch an item.

9.) Take it – the dog leaves a desired object untouched until given this command.

10.) Give – a command teaching the dog to be generous, and/or releasing something your pet has placed in his mouth on your hand.

11.) Speak – another way of saying “to bark ONLY when I say so”.

12.) Roll over – can be one of the basic commands; this is when the dog lies down, roll over, and stand back up. Quite a bit of an exercise.

13.) Attack – if partnered with the command “Growl”, you (the owner) will be the king of your neighborhood, though mostly used only on Police Dogs. Common commands are either “Attack” or “Sick’em”.

14.) Fetch – can also be one of the basic commands where the dog retrieves a thrown object, bringing it back to the one who threw it, a nice strategy for luring guard dogs (especially when they’re obsessed with balls).

Insights On Dog Training

A dog is said to be man’s best friend. Most people like to keep them as pets because they are capable of guarding their possessions as well as keeping them safe at all times. However, what most pet owners fail to understand is that their dogs need to go through the so-called dog obedience training. It is very important because the training itself will educate your pet as to the proper behavior. Chances are, you will be taking your dog for a stroll or to some trips and it will never be helpful if he is wild and unruly. To ensure that he is not going to cause troubles, obedience training is definitely a wise choice!

Dogs Need Social Skills

Generally, dogs are held to be social animals. Thus, their behavior should be shaped. They often get too excited when they see people and other objects so the tendency is for them to get wild when they are able to get out of their homes. The dog training is therefore a must for them. Dog training is not only composed of physical exercises but also some mental activities that will sharpen their minds.

When to do Obedience Training

Most owners ask when the right time is to employ obedience training. Ideally, a new pet needs to be trained. The younger the dog is, the higher chance of shaping his behavior.

Hence, for those pet owners who have not taken the right move as early as possible, you should identify the high time when to have your dog undergo the training. Well, dogs are very playful and they often associate it with ripping or destroying things. What if your valuables fall as the victims? You will surely go berserk!

obedience training is the solution to turn to because it is known to solve almost all behavioral problems that your pet may have.

Necessary Skills in Obedience Training

One of the most essential skills that obedience training calls for is no other than effective communication. The commands such as stay, stop, come, and so on are among the basics to learn. Ensure that the training sessions will not be boring for the dog to take or else there will be very minimal learning on his part.

Type of Training to Get Your Dog

Professionals suggest the use of two of the most essential training styles. The first one is called the reward training and the second one is known as the leash or collar training. The reward training is somewhat less forceful compared to the leash or collar technique. It therefore makes use of praises and rewards for any good behavior displayed by the dog.

Even if you intend to do it on your own, you can still get the help of the professionals by reading a couple of dog training guides online or taking the advice from the published books sold by your local bookstores.

Dog obedience training doesn’t actually cure all types of misbehaviors but it is able to resolve most of the problems. The most important secret is that of directing his attention towards other things and activities so he will forget about his tantrums. After all, a busy and happy dog is never a source of trouble!
