Help Your Dog Become Better Trained - Read Here!

All dogs have the same mindset, no matter what kind or size. Understanding how they think will allow anyone to train any dog. If one doesn't fully understand this mindset, then here is some insight for them.

When possible, puppy training is the most effective form of dog training. Older dogs are trainable, but young dogs are more responsive to the lessons from training. If you train your dog from an early age, he will become an obedient pet and a close friend.

Keep an eye out for triggers for unacceptable behavior with your dog and be sure to distract him from those triggers. For example, if your dog doesn't like other dogs, try to keep him entertained and busy as you pass by other dogs on walks. This will create a positive association between the trigger and receiving attention or entertainment from you.

Do not allow your pet to become complacent in his training. Establish a clear set of rules and stick with it at all times. Often, owners get the feeling that they do not need to continue working with the dog once it is trained. But pets and humans actually share the same types of habit learning systems; if they don't practice they will forget! Therefore, it is vital that your dog follows an established rule system at all times.

Any issues you are having should not affect your relationship with your dog. Don't chastise your dog for something that is out of their control.

You should pick a phrase to say to your puppy while he is being house trained. Every time you take him outside, tell him "go potty," (use whatever phrase you have chosen) and this will help him learn to focus and remember what he has gone outside to do.

A trick you could teach your dog is to hold something in his mouth, such as a toy. Use positive reinforcements like a clicker or a cookie whenever the dog chooses the toy. Wait until he puts the toy near his mouth after he performs these actions a few times. When the toy is in his mouth, use the clicker and give a reward. Don't reward him until he secures it in his mouth.

If you prepare your dog for veterinary exams, it will help both you and your dog. Pet him across his entire body and praise him if he responds favorably. Try and teach him to be tolerant of having his teeth and paws examined. Your friends can help out, too.

Dogs benefit the most from consistent training and rewards. You need to demonstrate proper behavior, then work with your dog over time and reward him when he does the right thing. That is how dogs are able to grasp tricks. Reward and repetition is the key.

Training a dog is a lot easier if the trainer can work from a solid understanding of canine behavior. Once someone has this knowledge, he or she will be able to train a dog in the best possible way. Once an individual understands how a dog thinks, training the dog will be much simpler.
