What You Should Know About Dog Training

May 2, 2008
When it comes to training your dog, you don't really have to make too many expenses just to achieve that desire. Dog training can happen without a trainer's aid. If you are certain in what you want for your dog to learn, you can certainly do it all on your own. Not only will it be very cost effective on your part, but it will also be something worthwhile as you get to know your dog more and your dog will also recognize your authority more. Also, keep in mind, that when you take your pet to dog obedience classes, the trainer will demonstrate how to train your dog, but you will have to practice the dog training tips at home, so it still requires your time.

The first thing you needed to consider when it comes to dog training is earning your pet's trust. Since you will be his trainer and of course his master, you should already have established a form of authority before you start training your pet. Trust is vital, because no matter what you do if your dog does not trust you, he will never heed your commands. Before you actually establish a plan on what things you'd like your pet to learn, you should first establish your authority over your dog. Simple things like going to you whenever you call his name must already be one without problems by your pet before you even start with the training.

Once you have gained your dog's trust and established your authority over him, the next thing you needed to do is to plan out the tasks and tricks you want your dog to learn. This is important so that you can pace your dog's progress and you can evaluate the capacities of your dog when it comes to his training. When you begin to include commands in your plan, make sure that they are feasible to be taught and learned easily. Don't start with complex ones. You can start from the dog basic training commands like sitting, rolling, or even picking up things as commanded. After all, you are training your dog not to be on some road show but for an easier life within the household.

After you are done with these two things, the next thing you should be concerned with is the dog training accessories. Of course, your dog training will not be successful without these useful tools. You cannot train your dog by simply commanding him verbally or trying to scare him off with a stick if he chooses not to listen. More than just ensuring that you dog learns from the entire training, you should also make sure that you keep your dog safe throughout the training. There are lots of dog training accessories which you can choose from.

The most popular one when it comes to dog training accessories is the dog training collar. The training collars are also being widely used by expert dog trainers. There are two types of dog training collars which you can choose from. The first one is the leather collar which is also known as the canny collar. This is used manually and applies pressure on the dog's neck part if he fails to submit to the command. The other type of dog training is the electric one. These apply a low voltage shock on the dog for every wrong response made.
