  1. 1. How To Train A Dog Using Simple Tips And Tricks A dog is like a remote that must be properly programmed to work well with a television. The animal and the device are fully capable of producing the desired results, yet something more is needed to take advantage of those functions. This article can help bring out the innate ability to be trained in every dog. For the best results in training your pet, you must be diligent about giving rewards and encouragement. It's very important to provide treats at the proper time. If you don't do it at the correct time, the dog may become confused about the reward. Timing is essential when you are training your dog, so you want to spend enough time training them but do not want go overboard. You should not over do it, train in small time increments. Notice when your dog begins getting distracted during a training session. Ensure that the mood is calm as you approach your dog. Play time needs to be a distinctive time you initiate. Do not acknowledge the animal when you enter and by doing so, you create a controlled atmosphere in which you decide how and when play time begins. Always remain consistent when crate training any young pups. When letting your dog out of the crate, be sure to immediately allow your dog to relieve himself. Doing so helps him learn when it is okay to go to the bathroom. Right at the moment they do the behavior you are trying to reinforce, give the verbal command of approval. The word "yes" may serve as a good gap-filler in between the dog's good behavior and the giving of the reward. As your dog progresses in training, you can provide more freedom. The key to a satisfying life for your dog is a balance of freedom and obedience. Like most things, too much freedom can be counterproductive, so exercise caution with certain liberties. Primary reinforcement is an important part of any training program. You need to give your dog a treat if they are good. Rewards can be rubbing a dog's belly or giving it a treat. This will teach your dog how to get something he already wants. Positive reinforcement is the preferred training method for dogs. Use a soft tone to let your dog know you are satisfied and give it some small treats too. Do not shout or strike the dog. It only abuses the dog and causes him to be even more disobedient. Firmness, positivity and consistency are the keys to solid training your dog. When you discipline your dog, your tone is an important factor. Dogs can pick up how you are feeling. By adopting a stern tone to your voice, it will be easier to enforce discipline. You can rest assured that when you train your puppy, they may have an accident in the house. Always immediately clean-up any messes your dog makes. Carpets are known to trap the smell of urine and encourage the dog to return to that spot for further marking. There are a variety of products that will help you remove the odor; check with the local pet store or department store.
  2. 2. To train young dogs to walk with a leash, you must first have the dog wear a collar during playtime. Making sure your new dog is comfortable with a collar is important, particularly if you want to take them on walks and have some sort of identification tags for them to carry. If you know how to get through to your pet, it is easy to teach them more things down the line. Your dog will enjoy making you happy and seeing your reaction.
