Discover The Easy Dog Training Method That Actually Works!

May 26, 2008
Being able to train your dog on your own is one of the most rewarding experiences any dog owner can have. Not only will you get your dog to be the "good boy" (or girl) you want, but you will also strengthen the bond between you and your pooch.

Before starting any dog training program, keep in mind that you want to be a teacher to your dog. You don't want to be a crazy dictator but you also need to remember that you are the one in charge. You are teaching your pup to be a better behaved dog and be the pooch that everyone admires!

If you have ever debated between training your pooch on your own or hiring a professional dog trainer, it's an easy answer. There's no better person than you to train your dog and grow the relationship between the two of you.

Effective dog training requires a battleplan. I included a link at the bottom of this article so you can get a full dog-training program you can use at home, but for now here are a few tips to keep in mind when starting to work with your pooch.

Before you start any training session, make sure your dog is in the proper mindset. Take him or her for a walk so that your dog can go to the washroom. You also don't want to try to train them right after they have had a meal. Just like humans dogs can get sleepy after they have filled their belly.

Why do this? So that your dog isn't distracted during your training. You want him or her to be completely comfortable.

We also recommend taking a little time to play with your dog before you start any training session. This lets your dog feel relaxed and comfortable with you.

And as you might have expected, doggie treats are a part of any training program! Your dog loves to be rewarded when he or she does something right. Don't go overboard and give 3 dozen treats each time - save them for when your pooch has truly earned it so he or she knows what they did right.

It's normal for your dog to run off every now and then during your training. Don't go in a frenzy and chase after them. Simply call him back using an authoritative tone to call him back and keep working on your training when you have his attention again.

One important thing to keep in mind is to not become frustrated if your dog seems to be clueless about what you are expecting from them. If you simply get upset with your dog you aren't helping the matter. Instead you need to learn how to better communicate with your pup.

There are times you are going to have to take him and physically demonstrate what you want him to do. Just keep at it and I guarantee over time he will start to understand you better and better.

If you have decided to train your dog on your own, pat yourself on the back! It's an incredibly rewarding experience that will pay huge benefits in the long run. You (and your dog) will be happy you decided to do it on your own. Good luck!
