Is it hard to train a dog? Don’t forget it is something you can learn easily. There are lots of books and tapes, where trainers and dog lovers teach you from their experience how to train your dog. In addition some have even trained professional trainers for their dogs. However, many of the tips you will find online are much easier to use. You will find that a lot of the dog training videos and books you will find online, are in this category. You will find great tips on how to train your dog from those who have been doing this since the beginning of time, in the training club. This is not only for the sake of learning the tricks. It is because they care about their dog and are really happy with its performance.
In order to ensure the dog will learn your command, it is necessary that you be very patient. They need to know what you want them to do before you give it to them. You should never shout at them because it will only confuse them. It is a good idea to praise them every time they do well, then they’ll be sure of what you want. In order to be very successful, you need to be very patient. If you are patient, you will always be able to give them the correct command. It is worth remembering that dogs have a short attention span. You should think of using positive reinforcement.
The way you use the positive reinforcement will depend on whether you have a male or female dog. If you have a male dog you should always use treats. He should get a treat every time he does something right. He must be rewarded for performing well. This will make him know what you want. But be careful you should not reward them for making a mess or not doing well, this is something you must not do. This is the opposite of positive reinforcement. You should instead reward them for behaving properly. You should do this by giving them some time with you, or a toy.
In order to get a dog to perform even better, you should use the reward method and not the punishment one. In the reward method, you should use treats. They should be given whenever they perform well. You should also be aware that dogs, even if they have been trained, still have some inappropriate behavior in them. You should be extremely careful to control any bad behavior, or else you’ll really mess up your dog’s training. A good idea, which you should adopt, is to set some time aside for your dog. He should be alone and apart from you for short times throughout the day. That way he will be alone and apart from you and his bad behavior will be isolated. Remember, the rewards system is the way to go.
