Just like a remote that has yet to be programmed, a dog needs training. Your dog is capable of doing what you would like him to do, but you have to train him the right way. Your canine buddy is already equipped with the intelligence he needs to be well-trained. He just needs a masterful hand to show him the ropes.
Crates should feel like a safe place to puppies. So, you should never use them as a way to discipline your dog. Dogs may need to be familiarized with the crate to feel comfortable and secure in it. There are many tricks that you can try to make it easier for both of you. If they shy away from the crate, try placing a chew bone and shutting its gate when they are not inside. This will make the puppy want to be let inside the crate to get the bone. Once they enter the crate, be sure to praise them to show that what they did was good.
Make sure your dog is up and active often. Dogs can get bored quite easily. Dogs that lose interest are hard to train. You will find that your dog will pay more attention to you when it is exercised and happy. Go for a long walk with your dog.
Consistency is key in crate training a puppy. The first thing to keep in mind is that you must let him use the bathroom as soon as he’s let out. This will teach your dog that he can wait until he gets out of the crate to relieve himself.
Make sure to use the exact same tone with your dog every time you give him a command. They will know this tone of your voice and associate it with being in trouble. You should also work on developing different tones to use in different situations. For example, you can have a sharp one for disciplinary purposes, and a firm, but not-as-sharp one for simple commands.
Always treat a dog after completing tasks. It is important for the dog to realize when he exhibits the proper behavior in response to your commands. Doing so leaves no question as to whether a behavior is considered acceptable or strictly forbidden.
Training is a lifetime endeavor. Training should not stop because he is not a puppy anymore. If you always train your dog they will stay obedient and you will not encourage any new bad habits.
Train your dog to stop barking with a treat. Any time the animal starts to bark, get its attention by showing him a tasty dog treat. Forcefully, speak the command until your pet ceases barking. Then, you can treat them. As time passes your dog will understand that his incessant barking is not allowed.
Once someone knows what to do to get their dog to learn obedience, they just need to put these methods to use. The dog will enjoy pleasing the owner as much as the owner enjoys seeing the dog responding to the training they are administering.…
