When you first meet your dog, chances are he didn’t show his true colors and may have come to you with a few “problems”. Even the smartest dog was once a mischievous pup like yours. You can develop a relationship with your pet and teach it how to behave in a house by training it.
It takes a while for a dog to get comfortable in a crate. Don’t take it too fast; introduce the dog at his own pace. Once he is comfortable walking in and out of the crate, try quietly closing the door and offering him a biscuit through the wires. At first, only close the gate for a short time, then gradually extend the time as your dog becomes more comfortable. If your puppy starts acting distressed about going into the create, you need to slow things down.
When you are going to be training your dog, it is important that you limit the length of the training sessions. Begin with shorter training sessions and gradually increase the time each day. Try to determine when your dog stops paying attention to you during your sessions.
Ask yourself how your dog is seeing things. A lot of owners get frustrated when their dog is not understanding a basic command. Instead of being frustrated, try to think like your dog. Looking at the world through their eyes could give you new insights about training them.
Repetition is the key to success when teaching a dog a new command. It can take as many as 50 repetitions of one command before your dog learns it. Being patient while trying the same task or command will allow your dog to understand it.
Many dog owners are surprised by the ease with which dog training can be integrated into their schedules. They are further amazed when they begin
to see great results in no time at all. Try some of the tips above if you feel a strain on the relationship between you and your dog.
