Dominant Dog - Taming it

Jul 19, 2008
Just like any new pet owner, you are excited because there is an addition to the household.

However, after picking up your dog and bringing your pet into your home, you realize that your dog is quite dominant and hard to control. What do you do? Some of you may say you will start to train your dog. Wait! Do you know what you are talking about? How do you train a dog? Do you know what you are going to do when the dog keeps barking? Yes, it is not that simple. Just like with any tasks, don't come unprepared. Understanding and knowledge are both essential so take the time to know why dogs behave that way.

If you haven't already known this, a dog is a descendant of wolves. I am sure that you know dogs have been domesticated thousands of years before but there is also another thing that you should know. There are some characteristics similar to a wolf that is by instinct ingrained within your pet. An example would be how it does things. The dog uses its sense of smell to tell its surroundings. Unlike us, we use all our five senses. What I am trying to say is that although dos have been domesticated for thousands of years now, they still retain some of their most basic instincts. You have to keep that in mind before going off to tame your dog.

When you feel that the time is right to train your dog and to show who is boss, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and start training your dog. There are three basic things you should remember when training your dog. They are; Focus, Take Control and claim all things as your possession that is inside the house, of course.

The first thing that we are going to talk about is focus. I understand that it might me very challenging to keep you cool especially if your dog is very annoying and just keeps barking. What do you do if your dig is annoying? Beat them? Yell at them? Let me tell you this, it won't do you any good. What you need to do is that you should remain calm. You should remain calm at all times.

The next thing we are going to discuss is taking control of the situation. Note that you should maintain eye contact with your pet if you are teaching something new. By doing so, the dog will understand that you are in charge and the one in authority. If you have been doing this for quite sometime, you'll realize that the submissive pet will look away. Therefore, if you often gaze away while talking to your dog, it might come to an understanding that you cannot control your pet hence, remember to keep an eye contact with your pet.

Last, claim all things as yours whether this is about toys, food, rugs and so on stand your ground. Only once your dog understands that you are the one in charge should you allow your pet to share things with you.

Now that you are armed with this knowledge, you can continue teaching your pet. Sometimes, it requires some time until the desired results are achieved. Not only you should keep this in mind, you should always remember to give tender loving care to your pet.
