Choosing a dog training class can be challenging, especially for first time dog owners. There are a lot of options out there. It can be difficult to know which class will best suit your dog. Here are a few things that you should consider when choosing the right dog training class for you and your pet:
Which puppy class is best suited to you? Every dog is different, so it is important to choose the right dog training class for your particular dog. Each dog’s personality type is different, and some may not be as receptive to a particular type of training as another. For example, you have an excellent attention span and enjoy working at a high level of detail. An agility or obedience class would probably be more suited to you than a one-on-one obedience class.
Which puppy class suits to you? Depending on your puppy’s personality type and personality, some might be better suited to obedience training, while others would be better suited to agility or leash walking. Which one you choose is entirely up to you. Your final decision should be based on your personal preference and training goals for your puppy.
What disciplines will my dog be trained in? Some breeds of dogs have natural skills that make them more dominant than other dogs. Some breeds are more dominant than others, and some dogs display gentler, more submissive behaviors. Certain dog training classes emphasize dominant/submissive behaviors more than others, so it’s important to choose a class that addresses your canine’s personality. For example, if your dog is particularly dominant, agility and Herding classes would be the best choice.
Does your pup need specific dog training equipment? Yes, some classes do require certain types of equipment or props. If you don’t have these items available when you sign up, you should strongly consider signing up for another class that does allow them to participate.
Is the trainer experienced? You should only go with an experienced breeder. This ensures that the person who is teaching your puppy is very familiar with working with both dogs of different breeds. In addition, an experienced breeder would have experienced enough to know how each breed acts or reacts to good behavior. This includes the importance of rewarding good behavior and punishing poor behavior.
Who will be teaching your puppy? Most puppy kindergarten classes are taught by professional dog trainers, not dog owners. These trainers should already have worked with dogs their whole lives, especially working with working dogs. A good trainer will understand and solve any problems that may occur during the course of a dog’s training. Good trainers will also be able to provide you with advice on how you can handle behavior problems as your puppy grows into an adult dog.
Which puppy of course is right for you? All dogs are different. Every dog breed is capable of learning basic training and socializing with other dogs. No matter what kind of puppy class you decide on, you will be sure to find dogs of many different kinds to choose from in the local dog breeding establishments.
Some dogs are more suitable for working than for show, and some are more suitable for both tasks. Some puppies are even considered good for hunting, although this breed is usually shy and quite temperamental. Whatever puppy class you choose, it is important to choose one that suits your personality. Choose a class that includes basic training (under the command of the trainer), agility, obedience training, and other problem behaviors like chewing. Choose a puppy breed that has a good history of being obedient and friendly.
When you find a class for which to do your puppy’s dog training, make sure that you are going with a legitimate trainer who is well known and highly recommended by other dog lovers. You may search for dog training classes online. There are websites that categorize different puppy breeds and their respective owners or trainers. These sites may also contain forums where owners can interact with one another to exchange information about which classes to suit them best, which is best for their dogs, which dogs are good for hunting, and which dogs are the happiest on their teams.
Some dog owners have found great success in using one of the many dog training DVDs available. There are DVDs that are specifically designed to help puppies overcome some of the behaviors that cause them discomfort and which cause these dogs to be naughty. Other DVDs will focus on different training techniques. One example of a DVD that focuses on overcoming aggressive behaviors is “A Pug Pup Training.” This DVD offers training techniques that will help owners train their Pugs to stop displaying aggression toward other dogs and other people, as well as help Pug owners overcome their shyness and nervousness around other people and animals.
There are three basic classes of dog training: level one, level two, and level three. Puppy level one is the most basic of the three. The purpose of level one puppy training is for you to establish the basics of puppy training, such as house manners, obedience skills, and basic training exercises. Most trainers at this level include more of a visual training technique using treats and praise to teach your puppy where they should sit or where they should stand. At level two of puppy training, you will start to learn the basics of training in a different way, using more of a motivation technique. At level three, the dog owner will begin to learn more advanced commands, such as sit, stay, and come.
