Training your new dog can be discouraging at first.
Once he is comfortable walking in and out of the crate, try closing the door and giving your pet a treat through the wire. Start off with small periods, like at 10 seconds per approach, and then gradually increase the times. If the dog becomes overwhelmed, you may be progressing too quickly.
You need to adhere to a specific feeding practices with any dog. Your dog will soon become accustomed to his feeding schedule and eat in a few minutes instead of going back to the food bowl all day long.
Do not ever use shock collar to train your dog. They often don’t function properly and their cost is rarely justified. They can cause your dog’s behavior too much.
As your dog progresses, you can start giving it more freedom. The spectrum of freedom and obedience gives your dog a satisfying life. Just be careful not to overdo it on the freedom initially as it can set your dog is properly trained before giving him so much slack.
If your canine jumps on top of you, squeeze his paws when he jumps on you to let him know he cannot do this any longer. This does not hurt the dog if you do it lightly, but it will be an uncomfortable feeling. They will quickly learn to stop jumping because they don’t like the reaction they get.
Make training with your dog enjoy the daily training. Taking time to play creates a strong bond between the two of you, which means fewer problems when training him.Training is fun for the dog, but make sure you get plenty of non-training play in too.
Your training sessons should be short. If you do have long training sessions, work in some break times so your dog can play before continuing with training.
