3 Tips For Best Handling Of Your New Dog

Mar 18, 2008
Dog training is taught many different ways. Teaching your new dog new tricks and doing obedience training takes dedication and patience. It takes skill and personal consciousness of not only your dog's activities, but your own body communication and training habits too. Here are two tips any dog trainer can employ when handling their new best friend:

1. Signals must be given to your dogs with one hand and arm only. In the early stages you may overdo the signals to gain the dog's attention, but ultimately all signals must be given smoothly and swiftly without any excess body motion whatsoever. The size of the dog is not a consideration here, because you can train any dog to pay attention. If he is paying attention to you he will see your signs.
The people who might disagree with this method usually have yet to learn how to make their dogs pay attention. You will have to watch yourself carefully to avoid giving unplanned body signals to your dog. It is natural for a new dog owner to move their head, lean forward, or move her hands when she calls his dog. The new dog owner is so intent in watching her dog that she's oblivious of her own actions. Have someone watch you so she can tell you when she notices you doing this.

2. Be consistent - do not scold a dog for a bad deed one day and praise him the next for a similar act. You cannot expect your dog to understand what is expected if you keep changing your actions each time you try it. Dogs learn by consistent repetition, and the entire dog training program should go on smoothly and consistently. For example, the formulas that you will use in puppy training will be repeated in advanced exercises when your dog gets older, and your handling will be exactly the same.

3. Study your dog so you can anticipate his response to any situation. You can get attuned to what affects your dog. If you have a gentle, quiet dog, do not antagonise him by craggy treatment. A gentle dog will become very alert and responsive if you train him in a calm and gentle manner with consideration for his feelings, and love, of course. Aggressive or overly frisky dogs need more forceful approach, but do not encourage the rough play.
