3 Easy Dog Training Tips
By Daniel Waser
I am bringing some more updated graphic related to
the dog training
If you are like most dog owners, you spend considerable time training your dog and you could use a few quick and simple tips. Dogs don't normally misbehave without having a good reason. After all, they are incredibly smart and they don't understand English so they can't explain it to you. Here are three easy tips about basics that can be useful for new dog owners as well as experienced owners.
Tip #1 - Imagine that you're a dog and think like one.
Get in the mood and think like your dog. Easy? Well, now you know what it's like to expect your dog to think like he's human. If you forget all other tips but remember this one, you may do well with your dog training. In order to address misbehavior, you must understand the reason behind it. The next time you hear your dog bark a little too much, keep in mind that it's in his primitive nature to bark when he perceives a threat or danger. You could have the best muzzle in the world or be the best communicator but nothing beats addressing the cause of the barking. You can also try to place your dog in more social situations so that it becomes less skittish around strangers. You can also give him more room to run in the backyard so your dog doesn't feel threatened.
Tip #2 - Reward your dog's good behavior.
If you want to be a successful dog trainer, don't emphasize punishments but rather give your dog the positive attention they crave from their owners. Positive reinforcement always provides better results in the long run. Keep in mind that dogs can't reason the way humans do. For example, if you punish your dog for chewing on your shoes while you're home, he may stop for now but what will happen when you leave? The dog will get bored again and start chewing on your shoes again. If you were to toss them a toy instead or punishing them, he gets attention from you and gets to play with his toy, both of which are seen as rewards for the dog. When you're away and your dog gets bored, he may just reach for that toy instead of your shoes. Always try to reward good behavior instead of punishing bad behavior.
Tip #3 - Remember their very short attention span.
You may not be aware of it, but dogs have no attention span. Ignore the tips that tell you how to address a mis take your dog made a little while back. Going back to the shoe example, waiving the chewed up shoes in their face will not mean a thing to your dog, even if they did it less than 5 minutes ago. You must catch your dog in the act in order to give a meaningful punishment and get your point across.
Keep these three easy tips in mind and you'll be successful.
