Success Tips For Dog Training

Jun 30, 2008
What if you want to train your dog at home? Could you do it? Could you not only do it, but could you be successful at turning that mad little dog into a well behaved pet like those you watch on TV? Well, it is certainly possible to train your dog at home, but you need to first become familiar with the dog training success tips. Teaching your flurry friend the basics of dog training is definitively a good start when you are considering training your pup.

Dog training must be a consistent and ongoing effort for both the dog trainer and the puppy. Reinforcing desirable attitude must be done on a regular basis for successful dog training. Here are other dog training success tips to ensure a good and rewarding training program.

What is the first tip that you as your dog's trainer need to be familiar with? To successfully train your puppy there are three criterias that are critical: patience, consistency and persistence. Without these three your dog training efforts will most likely be unsuccessful.

What is the alpha dog? Why do you want your dog to see you as the alpha dog? Well, first of all, dogs do not know the difference between humans and dogs. Just because you are big, and tall (in your dog's eyes), do not make you immediately the alpha. Dogs consider you a member of the pack, because they are pack animals. They do not know that you are humans and they are not, or that they are dogs and you are not. You are just a member of the pack, and because of this you need to demonstrate to your dog that you are the alpha, otherwise your dog will become your alpha, and believe it, they can be very good at it.

Don't expect your dog to be perfect, especially if you just started training him. There will be times when he just will forget what you taught him, or even worse, might decide he does not want to do it. When your dog fails to do what you ask him to don't scold him, just correct his behavior at once while he is making the mistake. Correcting your pet mistakes later on in time will prove to be ineffective, by then the dog will have forgotten what it was all about.

A bullet to remember in dog training success tips is to lavishly reward your dog with praises every time they show you a behavior that is desirable. Rewarding your puppy every time they do something good will lead to a snowballing effect that will allow more opportunity for you to reward your dog.

A very common mistake that owners make is to have long training sessions for their pets. There is a major reason why this is not advisable, and it has to do with the short attention span that dogs have. Instead, make the dog training sessions short, to the point and fun. Your pet will appreciate it and will be more eager to please you.

Should a dog owner get discouraged if the dog does not behave the way he wants him to at first? Definitively not, this is where patience and consistency comes into play. Don't be discouraged if your pup doesn't listen to you at first, if you persist, in not time your puppy will get it. There are a few benefits of training your own dog: increase your bonding with him, have fun while training him, get a better behaved dog and save money.

These dog training success tips are the basics for dog training. If you as the trainer, owner and master practice patience and caring with your dog, you will have a well behaved dog that you will be very proud to show off. Not only this, the relationship with your dog will improve ten folds.
