Train your dog properly, and the two of you can coexist peacefully. Give some of the following tips a shot. They might be useful in your attempts to form a healthy bond with your dog.
Crate training your new puppy is most effective when you take small steps. When they’ve settled down with the gate open, slowly shut it and pass treats through the gate. Use small increments of time, and build them up as your puppy or dog becomes more relaxed with the process. If the dog becomes agitated, slow down a little more to make them more comfortable.
When correcting your dog verbally, use sharp, short, concise commands. Don’t scream and yell and throw a fit. Just tell them no, and redirect them to the task you are asking them to do. Make sure your voice sounds firm and businesslike.
Look at things from your dog’s point of view. Frustration may come quickly if your dog does not pick up your training of basic things quickly. Don’t give up. Instead, think about what it must be like to be your dog. This can help you come up with new ideas on how to accomplish your training objectives.
Specific feeding habits should be established for your dog. A predictable feeding schedule and removing the food promptly will teach them to eat their food quickly. Your dog will quickly finish their meal before you remove their dish.
Make sure that your dog stays in a relaxed area. It is okay to have play time, but when you enter a room your dog should be calm. You can retain control over the environment by allowing a few moments before acknowledging your pet. You are behind the decisions to play or interact.
Your dog needs to get plenty of exercise. Boredom often befalls an inactive dog, or he may find himself in a “mutt rut” with a dull and listless routine. Dogs that lose interest are hard to train. When your dog is happy and well-exercised, he will be more willing to pay attention to his training. Bring your dog along when you walk or jog.
Select an appropriately sized crate to foster solid crate training results. Don’t forget that puppies get bigger. Choose a large enough crate to offer extra space beyond your dog’s dimensions. Your dog should have ample space to turn around inside the crate, as well as lay comfortably.
No dog is too old or out of control for training, and the advice you read here can help you get a good handle on his behavior. Remember to remain patient as you apply this advice. It is hoped that you and your pet will find much happiness together.
