Training a dog can be intimidating. You can become overwhelmed because there is so much information overload when you think of all the resources you have at your disposal.Here are some tips to get you started with effective puppy training.
Establish a quiet environment when you enter a room your pet is in. It is nice to calmly play with your dogs, but your dog should stay calm when you come into the room.
Limit the duration of your training sessions. Spending too much time just on training will bore your dog and waste your efforts. Keep first training lessons down to about 10 minutes or so.
If your dog jumps when you don’t want him to, quickly bring your knee up to encounter his chest and say OFF! This will not hurt him, but it is an uncomfortable feeling for them. They should learn to avoid doing it in order to avoid the reaction they get.
Exercise your dog at least an hour each day in addition to regular outside potty breaks outside. A dog who has received plenty of exercise and have fun will be much easier to manage.
Always call your dog’s attention by doing the same way. Start commands by calling the dog’s name. Get their attention by using its name and then follow up with whatever you want them to do. Dogs will hear there name immediately and pay attention.
Praise your dog often so that they look forward to training him. Do not reward unwanted behaviors and praise when your dog responds correctly.
You should never spend more than a few minutes training session pretty short. Training for more than fifteen minutes at a time to help ensure success.
