It can be really frustrating to find someone who has never owned a dog and is teaching him how to train them. If you don’t know how to train your dog obedience, it is important to understand that it isn’t about punishing your dog for doing something wrong. You need to show him what the correct behavior is and then reward him with praise or treats for that. Dogs learn better by being taught rather than being punishment. If your dog has any bad habits or behavior, they need to be corrected, but teaching your dog obedience doesn’t mean punishing him.
The most ideal place to train your dog correctly is away from you, in the company of other dogs. If he’s watching other dogs, he will not be able to pay enough attention to you to really pay attention. He will not be able to hear your commands because you’re shouting at him. If there are others calling his name, he’s going to have a tough time hearing you tell him “it’s okay”. It’s much better if you have a friend or family member with you when you’re training your dog to obey your commands. These people will be able to give you feedback on how well your dog is doing.
Here are some of the basic dog obedience training tips that you should follow. First, always reward your dog with praise and treats when he does something you like. Never let him receive any negative attention, such as scolding him or hitting him. If he does something bad, immediately stop whatever he is doing and do not give him any rewards until he corrects his behavior.
Second, negative attention will only make your dog fearful and scared of you. He will become withdrawn and will not be willing to interact with other dogs or people. Instead, you want to give him lots of love and attention, so that he feels secure and loved. Some dog training experts suggest using a combination of positive reinforcement dog training methods, such as clicker training and positive reinforcement.
Third, you should start puppy training early. Most dogs begin learning their obedience skills at an early age of three to five months old. Get started on dog obedience training by using a verbal command, followed by a treat as a reward for completing the command correctly. When your puppy obeys your commands, reward him verbally and then give him a treat.
Fourth, you should teach your dog to walk on a leash properly. This will go a long way toward training your dog for more complicated commands. Begin leash training by sitting down in a chair in front of your puppy. Show him the leash and ask him to follow it. Keep him close to you with your body facing in towards him while he is watching you.
Fifth, you should teach your dog’s bite inhibition. At an early age, dogs will lick their owners’ hands and lick themselves before they bite. You can help your dogs to learn proper biting techniques by having them perform a series of hand exercises. Reward your dogs with treats when they practice good biting techniques.
Sixth, you should teach your puppies to sit and stay. Teaching your puppies sit will go a long way toward teaching them other useful skills such as walking and getting around. For puppies, sit command is easier to teach than stay command. However, some dogs have difficulty sitting down and staying down, which may make it difficult to teach them to stay. In this case, you may want to consider waiting until they have grown a bit before attempting to teach them stay.
