5 Best Tips To Train Your Dog
There are many ways to train your dog, either sending him to take classes or teaching him yourself, so here we will show you 5 basic training tips that you should to know before starting.
- Choose a name that your dog can always hear clearly. I know we’ll want to pick a name for our new puppy or dog that we love, but we must consider a short name ending with a strong consonant (Jager, Jack, Rik). This allow to your dog pay attention better. If he’s an older dog, he’s probably used to his name; however, changing it isn’t out of the question. Dogs are extremely adaptable. And soon enough, if you use it consistently, he will respond to his new name.
- Teach him to come when called. The first and most important command to train your friend is to teach him to come when you call him (come Jager! good boy!). You’ll really see the benefits of perfecting this command.
- Recognize your dog good behaviour. Make sure you give your dog lots of attention when he’s doing the right thing. Let him know when he’s been a good boy. It’s even okay to be a little over the top.
- Teach him to correct bad things. Dogs live in the moment. few minutes after they’ve done something, it’s forgotten about. When he’s doing something bad, try your chosen training technique right away so he has a chance to make the association between the behavior and the correction. Consistent repetition will reinforce what’s he has learned.
- Be coordinate. When you’re training your dog, it’s necessary to get as many family members involving as possible so everyone’s coordinate. If you are telling your dog “down” when he’s on the couch and someone else is saying “off,” while someone else is letting him hang out up there, how in the world is he ever going to learn what you want? Consistency will be the key to your success.
