Shar Pei Training Requires Patience And Consistency

Sep 16, 2008
It is possible to train the Shar Peis successfully if the trainer is patient and consistent. The dogs are good learners and they are quite intelligent. But the training can be complicated, and hence has to be handled with care. Friends and strangers alike admire a well-behaved dog and the family can feel proud of it.

In the beginning the Shar Pei obedience training takes a long time, because the puppy is learning and experiencing a lot for the first time. Once this initial stage is over, the process speeds up. Nevertheless training sessions should be short, otherwise there can be a lot of frustration for you and the puppy if things don't work out the way you want them.

The best way to train the Shar Pai is by using simple commands, by praising it and giving rewards. Commands should be short and easily understandable, for example sit or play. Simple and short commands are better to capture the dog's attention than saying sit down here puppy or stay there, don't move.

Rewards and praises are the essence of the Shar Pei obedience training. If the puppy shows good behavior, it should be immediately acknowledged and rewarded. In this way it understands that this behavior should be reproduced in order to please the trainer, which the puppies are generally very eager to do. The rewards motivate them to behave correctly and they automatically get trained to do the right things.

For puppies there are Shar Pei obedience training classes at puppy kindergarten or socialization classes. Good manners are taught here and other training aspects are also taken care of. For example, the puppy is taught not to get excited or distracted when there are other dogs and people around it. Fun training classes are provided for older dogs to provide them with mental stimulation. Actually the age of six months is ideal in order to start Shar Pei obedience training, but it can be started even earlier.

Many different types of trainers are available and there are several methods of Shar Pei obedience training too. But there are generally two main kinds of training: the traditional training and the motivation-based training. The traditional training focuses on teaching the dog all that he should not do. Whereas the other training is positive reinforcement and the main focus here is the relationship between the dog and its owner and integrating the dog into the family to make it a polite member.

There are many types of trainers as well. The trainer for any class of Shar Pei obedience training should be a positive one. Of course he should teach the dog to do the basic obedience exercises, but at the same time he should tackle the other aspects needed for the training. This could include canine communication and simple health basics like hygiene and exercise. He should be able to understand the dog's problem behaviors and teach the dog good manners.

There are many dog training books available and if you go to the website Dooziedog.com, for example, you can get the names of the post popular books. For example, the book "Sit Stay Fetch" gives a complete training guide for puppies or "Dog Training Secrets" covers behavioral problems as well.
