Boston Terrier Training Made Easy

>> 5/11/09

Without questions, Boston terriers are a very popular breed of dog. For all their popularity however, Boston terrier training can be somewhat difficult. It takes a lot of time and a time of patience. If you have one of these terriers, you may be afraid that training him is an exercise in futility. That is not the case at all. You just need to follow a few techniques which will help you avoid some mistakes.

A lot of people believe that because Boston terriers are so stubborn, it will take upwards of six months in order to get the dog or puppy fully trained. This is actually a misconception and it is certainly not correct. Your first thought should be 'my dog will be trained immediately', not that it will take six months to see any type of result from the training!

Another very common mistake that a lot of owners make is going to be using their aggression as a training tool. One thing you need to remember about training your dog is you do not want him/her to be afraid of you. If you are constantly yelling at the dog and using an aggressive tone, they will just cower and not really learn anything.

On the flip side, if you treat your dog like you treat your best friend, you are not going to get anywhere with it. This is something that a lot of dog owners have a lot of problems with. While you want to nurture and treat your dog with respect, you are still the dog's owner and you need to make sure that they know that you are, in fact, an authority figure.

Now that you know what tone you should be using, it is now time to move onto the actual training process. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind and one is that you can not overload your pooch. Doing this will honestly do no good at all, you really just need to focus on one thing at a time and then move onto the next thing.

Another thing that you will want to keep in mind whenever you are dealing with dogs is that you are not having the training time too long. You can not schedule hour long training sessions because honestly - your dog will not want to listen to you for an hour and they will usually act out. Fifteen minutes or thirty minutes is perfect for a dog training session.

More than anything, you want your dog to have fun during training. Otherwise, he will not pay any attention to what you are trying to teach him. Making it fun will make him more apt to listen and retain his training. And do not worry, just because your dog is having fun during his training does not mean he will not listen. In fact, it will make him far more apt to pay attention to what you are teaching.

As you can see, there are many, many different things that you really need to think about whenever you are dealing with training your Boston terrier. Just keep these tips in mind and you will have a dog soon enough that is very well-behaved and extremely well-mannered . which is what we all want!
