Dog Training With Dog Training Aids

Mar 26, 2008
Using your voice to persuade your dog to learn something new is a great dog training aid. Use your dog's name before you state any command, and use a persuasive tone of voice. What is a persuasive tone? It's best to use a low, but pleasant, firm tone when dog training.

Talk constantly to your dog when dog training. When training your dog to retrieve, you'll need to persuade him to take an item from you. Great dog training aids for this are very light dumbbells. As soon as your dog starts to take the dumbbell, immediately praise him with a happy and excited voice. And don't forget to pet him as well.

Always keep a happy tone with your dog when training. Becoming angry will never assist in your training efforts. It will only serve to confuse your dog and make him anxious.

Your dog always wants to please you. Keep this firmly in mind when dog training. If your dog does not understand what you want him to do straight away, come back to the art of persuasion. And exercise patience with your dog.

As soon as your dog understands what you want him to do, he will take great delight in, e.g. taking the dumbbell from you. In fact, you'll probably find that your dog will be happy to retrieve the dumbbell from you again and again.

If your dog is having trouble understanding that you want him to take the dumbbell, gently offer him the dumbbell and if necessary, open his mouth wide enough to accommodate the dumbbell and place the dumbbell in his mouth. You may even need to close his mouth around the dumbbell.

Dog training sessions should be fund. They are a good opportunity to spend quality time - just you and your dog. Dog training certainly takes time and effort. Depending on your dog, you may need to be very patient with your dog training efforts.

Once your dog has become used to taking the dumbbell from your hand, he will probably want to perform this "trick" over and over, because he knows he is pleasing you.

Once your dog is taking the dumbbell from your hand, encourage him to pick it up off the ground just in front of him. Then move the dumbbell gradually further and further away from him, and give him the command of "Fetch".
