A dog is very similar to a remote that must be properly programmed to work with a television. The television remote has all the functionality needed to control your television, but it’s your job to suss it out. Dogs already possess the means to be taught, but need the help of their owner.
You can try a few tricks when crate training your indoor dog or puppy. After he goes in the crate, give positive reinforcement to increase the chance that he will go into the crate again.
When you verbally correct your dog, be concise. Don’t drag on and rant how your dog is. Say no and redirect your dog to the right thing.
Make sure your dog stays awake and active often. Dogs can easily get bored very easily. A bored dog without interest in what you’re doing is more difficult to train. Your dog will be more quickly if you keep them well exercised. Go for long walks and runs with your dog on a regular basis.
Make sure your teething puppy has a bunch of chew toys readily available to him, so that he isn’t tempted to chew other things that aren’t okay to chew.Give it one of his toys immediately.
Keep in mind that puppies get larger as they age. Choose a crate which will be the right size for the dog when they hit adult size. Your dog should be able to make itself comfortable in a crate big enough for it to toss and sleep without being overly crowded.
The first thing your dog is to establish that you are in control. Your dog will not respect or obey you, so that he knows to obey and respect you. When you walk with your dog, walk in front of him to establish leadership.
