So, are you thinking about getting a dog, or you already have one? You want to know what you need and where to train your dog. Well, here are some useful things that we are going to give you, in order to help you train you r dog in a nice way.
You should know, before you get a dog that you should choose a dog that will fit in with your lifestyle. Because getting a dog is a really big commitment. You should bear on your mind that you will be living with your dog up to fifteen years. So, with this on your mind, you should know which dog to choose.
You have to devote fifteen to twenty minutes a few times per day in order to training with your dog. Also, make sure that training s fun and be upbeat and enthusiastic when you are training with your dog. About choosing the name for your dog, you should give him a name that is practical. You need to use your dog’s name often, especially when you are playing, training him, petting or just when you need his attention. You will know that he has learned his name, when your dog starts looking at you every time as you say his name.
You should do crate training. That can be helpful when you are leaving him alone or when he is sleeping. You should do this when your dog is still a puppy, then use a small crate, so your dog doesn’t relieve himself in it. You should bring the crate into your bedroom at night if your puppy cries when he is alone in the crate. Also, you should teach your dog that his crate is his den, and that is not a cage.
Now, you should teach him how to walk on a leash by going for walks. If you don’t have an enclosed yard, this is very important. You have to teach him to heel. You should top and say ‘heel’, when he starts pulling in the leash, and do not take any other step until dog comes to your side.
The most of your dog training you should do outside, in a park or maybe in your yard if you have a big one. Actually, you should teach your dog some basics while you are in a house yard, and then after you have taught him to walk on a leash, then you can proceed and keep on with training outside in a walks or in a park, or anywhere that you find nice and pleasant for you and for your dog.
The most important command that you have to teach your dog, before you walk out of your home is to tech him to come. This command could save your dog’s life. You should teach him the command ”come” instead of calling him by name.
You should know that all dogs have different temperaments. Similar to kids, different breeds learn at different rates. Keep that in mind. Some dogs will bend over backwards to please you, while the other one are stubborn and can challenge you at every turn. The thing is that you need to meet the need of your dog’s temperament and to adjust your training.
You should always reward good behavior and success with praise with praise and sometimes with a small treat. In order to help to motivate your dog, small treats will help to learn his training. Also, the treat should be small so that doesn’t patient your training session. Always give him a praise.
So, these are some of the basic commands and the most important commands that you should teach your dog first. After some time you should keep on training with your dog, and be very patient with your dog, repeat with him what you have learned and after some time you will have a nice and trained dog.
