Canine training is an essential part of a healthy bond between human and dog. Good knowledge can make dog training much easier. If you are just winging it, you are sure to hit a lot of rough spots. The following article will give you some great tips to use to help you be successful.
You will have to repeat commands several times before your dog learns it. It is said that a human only masters something when they do it 10,000 times, and dogs are no different, although it should take much less repetitions than that! Continue repeating the command patiently, and eventually your dog will understand it.
It is not difficult to teach a dog how to roll over, and having some treats on hand makes it easier. First, make your dog lay down. Then hold the treat at the side of the dog’s head and move it around it’s face to the other side. Ideally, your dog will use his nose to follow the treat, rolling his whole body in the process. Say “roll over” as you perform the maneuver. Do not let a lack of early success frustrate you. This takes repetition to nail down, but once you do, you will have the star dog on the block.
Maintain consistent volume and voice tone over time when giving your dog commands. These tones let your dog know that you are serious. It will also help him distinguish between a disciplinary tone, which is sharper, and a commanding tone.
Limit the duration of training sessions. Your dog is going to get bored doing the same thing over and over. Aim for less than 10 minutes per session.
If your canine jumps on top of you, gently grab their paws and squeeze them; this will tell them that they cannot jump. This will not hurt your dog if done lightly, but it will impart the information that jumping up is not appropriate. In time, they will cease jumping on humans, as they will have the negative association with the squeezing.
A first step to training a puppy is get him used to hearing his name. Use his name on a regular basis, and teach him that the appropriate response to hearing is name is to come over to you. Your puppy’s name should be one of its first words learned. Spend plenty of quality time with them, so that they know that they can trust you. This will help them become more receptive to harder training later.
You have to make sure that your dog listens to what you say. The article above outlined some great tips for you to use in your puppy training techniques. You need to have patience, but the outcome will be good over time. Your dog will become obedient if you keep repeating the same commands and exercises and use the best strategies.
