Cute canines can make many people fall in love with them. If you happen to already be the owner of one, good for you! To have a great relationship with your pet, training is very important. When your dog understands what is expected of him, you will be able to trust his behavior. Read on for some tips to better the relationship between you and your dog.
Verbal corrections must be sharp and direct. Do not waste time ranting about how bad your dog is. Say no and give them a command to do the right thing. Also speak with authority so they understand you mean business.
Look at it in your dog’s point of view. You may feel burnt out if your dog does not seem to be responding to their training. Rather than abandoning the training, consider what the dog might be thinking. Consider how it would be to see the world in their eyes. Doing this will give you a completely different perspective, which should help you in training them.
Make sure you establish feeding routines and times for your dog. Teaching your dog to realize that when you place its food bowl down, it will be removed within 10-15 minutes, will help it understand that there is a feeding schedule to stick to. Your dog will quickly finish their meal before you remove their dish.
Teaching dogs to roll over can be easy, provided some treats are on hand. You can have your dog sit or roll over. The next step is to palm the treat and hold your hand beside your dog’s head. Slowly raise the treat over your dog’s head to the opposite side. He will probably follow the treat, rolling side to side as it moves. Whenever you dog does roll over, actually say the words, “roll over.” Continue to do this until your dog actually rolls over whenever you say the words without using the treat. It may take some time for your dog to perfect the trick, but it’s a popular move and one that is sure to impress others.
The tips you just read should help you establish a successful relationship with your pet. Use the tips that best relate to your situation. Surely, you will have emotional ties to your pet. Training is the way to have success. Train your pet well. Congratulations on the furry friend!
