Labrador Training Tools To Train Your Labrador

Aug 16, 2008
Labrador training can be a difficult. However, it has many rewards for the dog owner if the training is successfully completed. Labrador dogs are known for their intelligence, loyalty, and also a loving dog. They make wonderful companions for people at all stage of ages. Besides trained as house pets, labrador dogs are commonly trained to be show dogs, or to be working dogs in a various industries because of their high intelligence and their high learning capacity for new tasks and tricks. By following a few labrador training tips, the entire training process can be made fast and simple.

Basic Tool: The Leash And Collar

There are many different tools to help you perform an effective labrador training. Each of these tools makes the training of the dog much easier compared if you don't use any. The first training tool you should have in your tool inventory is a dog leash and collar set. These tools help to control the dog during the training and help you to communicate your thoughts to the dog during each phase of the training session.

At this point, let me remind you that the dog leash should never be used for negative reinforcement during labrador training. For instance, repeatedly jerking on the leash and yanking the dog around. This can cause harm to the dog and teach the dog that you intend to hurt it. Instead, use the leash for gentle coaxing and careful maneuvering of the dog into the proper position. It also provides the dog with a reminder to focus on the labrador training program and stop it from wandering away during the training.

Reward Your Labrador With Doggy Treats

To keep the dog attention in the training process, many professional trainers use doggy treats for positive reinforcement during labrador training. Also, it provides the dog with a reward for accomplishing a task correctly. The use of doggy treats training technique can also be just as effective for a dog owner, who is training their dog as long as the treats are used properly during the training. The treats that are chosen for use during the labrador training should not be given to the dog at any other time of the day. This way the dog knows that the only way they will be getting the treat is by paying attention to the training and accomplishing the tasks.

There are many commercial doggy treats available for use in labrador training and the choice of which one to use is different for any trainer. However, you can also use home made doggy treats like bits of boiled chicken, small bits of ham, or small pieces of broken bacon. Eventually, any item that tastes good to the dog, easy to carry and can be given to them on an infrequent basis, will do just find as a doggy treat for labrador training.
