Dog Training Do's and Dont's
A well trained dog has many benefits including their ability to socialize with other dogs and people. Dogs are very similar to children and need to learn right from wrong. Training will help them to learn some simple manners and household rules as well as basic commands, such as sit, walk, come and drop.
Almost all dog owners that have had their dog for 5 years or more have one or more behaviours they would like to change. Before these problems can be changed you really have to be able to understand your dog.
Ahh, the good old sit command, the classic association between man and dog. It may be a cliché of dog ownership but the sit command is THE most important tool in dog training and disciplining.
Positive disciplining is a common way to build behavioural skills in human children and it is also an amazing tool for using on puppies.
Travelling with a dog in the car is not as easy as just loading the pet and leaving. There are things to consider, especially for long distance drives.
Even today, many dog owners think that punishment is the best way to get their puppy to stop chewing or digging, building good behaviour and following these steps is much more effective.
Animals may be born with certain dangerous behavioural tendencies. Recognizing these traits while a puppy will go a long way towards a well balanced and well trained adult dog.
Dogs need leadership, and if your dog its acting out it could be because it thinks it is the boss of your household. Reclaim your house; you are the boss so become the dog’s leader
