All The Must-knows In How To Train Your Dog

Believing that dog training is hard and some dogs are simply not trainable are many people. The truth of the matter is that all dogs are trainable and it certainly does not need to be hard work making both these views wrong. In order to get the training of your dog right, we need to explore some things you need to do.

If within a reasonable amount of time you manage to pass on the essential dog skill to your pooch, then you will be deemed to have gotten the training of your dog right.

If you are taking too long to pass on a certain skills to the dog, or if you are finding it impossible to inculcate certain skills in the dog or even if the dog keeps forgetting skills taught to them, it does not necessarily mean that things are not going too well in training your dog. Your skills, aptitude and dedication as a dog trainer and your dog’s natural ability are both variables at play here which you need to keep in mind.

So that the skills you want to pass on to him or her are also adopted alongside those basic canine life skills, the best time to start training a dog would be when he or she is learning basic life skill. That way, they would be more deeply ingrained in him or her, the required would be part of the dog’s personality. The biggest reward you can give to a dog is attention and conversely, the biggest punishment you can give to a dog is deprivation of attention. Reward him or her with attention when he behaves accordingly while also punishing him or her when he or she fails to behave accordingly if you need to simulate or illustrate it to him or her if you want to get your dog to pick a certain behavior.

As a form of punishment, hitting your dog should not be something you should do for the simple reason that the dog would not understand being hit is a form of punishment. You hitting your dog will only make your dog think of you being violent to him or her. Doing things like running to the road or messing up neighbor’s stuff is something you need to keep your dog from doing and you would be better advised to find ways of restraining his movements rather than hitting him or her.

Sending mixed signals is one of the worst things you can do in the course of training a dog because once a dog gets confused, it becomes very hard to train him or her.
