Much like a television or other electronic device, dogs must be programmed and trained to produce certain results. The potential is there, but it’s your job to suss it out. Dogs have the ability to be trained. However, a person must utilize the advice provided here in order for their dogs to showcase their best abilities.
A healthy diet is essential for your dog. A bad diet can cause your dog many problems. If your dog isn’t getting what it needs to stay healthy, it could really struggle to find the energy for training or may act out in other ways. With the right healthy diet, your dog will be more energetic and eager to please during training sessions.
Never tie two or more dogs in close vicinity to one another. Doing so could cause injuries to the dogs if they become entangled in the chains and attempt to free themselves. In the case that a large dog and small dog become entangled, the large dog’s rope or chain could cut off air circulation to the small dog, and it could be severely injured or die.
You must be willing to invest the time required for practice if you want your training to be successful. You may need to repeat the same command lesson from 25 to 30 times before your dog learns it. Try to maintain as much patience as possible, for the sake of your dog.
It is important to have an appropriately sized dog crate. Keep in mind that puppies grow up. Be sure to select a crate that allows your dog to have ample room as it grows. At full size your dog should be able to move around without feeling too constricted.
Showing him that you are in control is the first lesson to teach your dog. You need to establish your authority, or he will ignore your commands. 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.
Once a person has figured out how to bring out the dogs abilities to learn and be trained, it is simply a matter of practicing those techniques. The dog will enjoy pleasing the owner as much as the owner enjoys seeing the dog responding to the training they are administering.
