Tips on how to train a dog the easiest way

Mar 15, 2008
Training your dog should be fun, awesome, and enlightening for both you and your dog. Dog ownership does take times, brain power (not muscle power), and money, but the benefits are enormous in terms of the relationship you will have with your chosen "best friend." Here are some dog training tips that would make your dog training a successful one.

1. Establish specific words and commands to give the dog when training him. Use only these commands when you work with the dog. Changing your words or varying commands will confuse him, making it harder for him to understand what you want him to do.

2. Dogs can learn many words so keep them challenged by adding more and more. You can give all your dogs' toys, balls, bones, etc. names. When giving your dog the item, make sure you use a name to describe it every time so they can learn it. For example: "Find your chew bone!" "Go get your duck". "Get your ball". "Find your Kong". Have fun with your dog and teach them lots of language!

3. Determine what you want to teach your dog. Once you know what you want to teach, get some treats or toys. When ever your dog does something you like quickly reward your dog. Timing is crucial when your training. If your timing is off training will take a little longer. With a little bit of effort and practice you can teach your dog to do just about anything.

4. Dog training will be a time when you and your dog will be spending a great deal of time with one another, which is always a great thing. One reason for so many different kinds of behavior problems with a dog is because they are lonely, nobody to play with, not getting enough attention, which is why spending time with your dog is so very important. Let your dog know how very proud of him you are anytime that he does something worth rewarding, even if it is just something small really. The more you praise them, the more likely they will be to continue their good behavior for you.

5.The key to success is to know how to break each behavior down into its smallest components so that your dog can understand the behavior
