Several Tips On Successful Dog Training

Nov 14, 2007
Dogs are wonderful companions and there are many different breeds and types of dogs to choose from that can fit any need or desire. Once you have considered the type of dog you are looking for you have the option of getting a puppy that is not trained, one who is trained or getting an older dog that had been trained. This of course would depend on your situation. However, it is not a good idea to get a dog without training and not have the intention of training it.

There are a variety of reasons why it is necessary to train a dog. The biggest form of training is house breaking. This is to train a dog that the house is not a place to eliminate waste and that the dog should use a designated area, usually outside.

In the case of smaller dogs, it is possible to paper train them and many do if they are going to be away for long periods during the day. Training a dog not to chew is another necessity that comes up with a young puppy or even older dogs. The necessity of this is that dogs will destroy furniture but not only that can chew on electrical cables, which can cause injury.

There are also a number of difficulties, which can arise during training. Many of these come from not being able to, or not being consistent. In addition, the method of training may not work well and be unsuccessful. There are a variety of ways to train a dog to do what you want and obey you so it is important to do a little research or talk to others who own that breed and see what works for them.

To successfully train a dog there are a few things that you need to keep in mind while you are going through the process.

Be consistent - this is probably the most important thing you can do after you have found a training method that works for you. Reward when you should, discipline when you should and keep to a schedule, this makes it easier for the dog to learn what you want it to.

Stay calm - some dogs learn faster than others. If you have, one that learns quickly great but if not remember to take the time and be calm. Getting angry or frustrated only upsets the dog you are trying to train and makes it harder on both of you.

If you are not having luck at home, try taking your dog to a training school, take a class or research various methods on the web. This can help you find away to have a companion that is well trained and keep your stress and frustration levels low.
