Have Patience

Training your dog can be difficult if you’re attempting to do it for the first time, or the dog hasn’t experienced any proper training before. However with a kind manner, and a lot of patience, anyone is capable of training their dog. It will take a long time, as you need to do it in small sessions. The usual recommended thought is to have sessions that don’t last longer than fifteen minutes.

You don’t want to have the dog that you’re training getting bored, and distracted during a longer session. You can have sessions two or three times a day though, making the dog training about repetition. Start with something rather basic, such as ‘sit’. When the dog manages that task, and sits for you then move on to other commands like ‘stay’ or ‘lie down’.

Avoid Distractions

Distractions are something that you should avoid as much as possible. Take the dog that you are training somewhere quiet, and try to remove anything that might distract you. It’s not good to have to take business calls, when you’re in the middle of the training session. It’s best to not have the first few sessions at a location where a lot of other dogs and owners go.

Dog Training and its Benefits

Our dogs are amazing. They truly can enhance the way we live our lives. They are cheerful, happy and playful. When we are sad, they are sad with us and help cheer us up. However, not everyone can see how amazing our dog is – especially when our dog is barking at them, chasing their cat, or even urinating on something that they shouldn’t be urinating on. There are ways that we can scold our dog, but scolding them never really stops the bad behavior. The only true way that we can stop this is to train them.

Dogs need structure, just in the similar way that small children do. Dogs also enjoy structure. They like the idea of knowing when to do something and when to stop doing something. This is because of their internal desire for pleasing their owners. Dogs can be very gentle. They are very aware of when we are mad, sad or happy with them. When they do something right, we are happy and pet them. We coo at them softly and the dog wags its tail happily. Why not give them the training that they need, which will help improve their life as well as your own?

The more I work with my dog the happier I am. Just the other day when I was walking my I ran into my good friend Cash (shameless plug for him Provo Orem window Washers) and my dog stayed at my side the whole time. Normally I am so ashamed of my dog pulling me this way and that and barking and what have you.

No More Embarrassment We have all been there before. Your friend invites you to their home. They ask about your dog and even offer that you should bring them along so that you can have a “doggie date”. You agree and happily bring Fido with you. However, once you get there, your dog sees the other dog and takes off. He sniffs and sniffs and then barks. You pull him back and smile just trying to shove it off. Then, your dog runs around the house and yard, peeing on almost anything and everything. Your dog doesn’t have to use the bathroom, but they are trying to mark their territory, which is not their territory at all. Now your friend is not only unhappy, but the other dog is also. And this is mostly due to the fact that you have no control over your dog. This is because your dog is untrained. You shout and tell him to stop, but he just continues on. And then, when you are unhappy with him, he doesn’t understand why. Dog training is very important because it teaches dogs to do what they should be doing and to not do what should not be done. It also helps them know what you are happy with, which will help make you both happy together. Continue reading “Dog Training and its Benefits”
