Some people give their dogs away because of their bad behavior, but in most cases this can be avoided. Properly trained dogs are healthy and happy members of a family. Making your dog this way doesn’t have to be hard, if you invest the time to do it with some simple steps.
Establish feeding habits for your dog. If your dog has a schedule for his feeding, he will learn when to expect his meals. Your dog will quickly finish their meal before you remove their dish.
A dog needs a healthy diet as much as a dog owner does. A bad diet can cause your dog many problems. Not only is it unhealthy, it can affect the way they behave. With the right healthy diet, your dog will be more energetic and eager to please during training sessions.
Try to get your dog on a regular feeding schedule. This gives both you and the dog a heads up as to when they need to go outside, and you can make sure that happens before they make a mess indoors. This will also teach your dog “hold it” until her next trip outside.
Whenever the dog jumps upon you, grab its paws and give them a soft squeeze so they know it is not okay to jump on humans. This won’t hurt your dog, but it will give them an uncomfortable feeling that will help teach them not to do it again. If you do this, they will not jump up on your or visitors any longer because they will think about you squeezing their paws.
As it was stated previously, having a well-behaved and happy dog in your family is very possible. To train your dog, you must show him love and affection. Apply the tips you’ve just read so your dog remains well-behaved at all times.
