Little Known Ways To Train Your Dog

>> 8/26/09

There are many different types of training that one can provide to a dog and all are of great way for you to be able to communicate with them. You can either purchase lots of books or go to lessons to learn the right ways to train your dog. But also, there are plenty of dog training free tips that you may want to consider using and which can be found easily online.

When you are going to start training your dog, it is best to start it as soon as you can. However, do not think that for one moment that because you have an older dogs you will not be able to teach them anything. This is simply not the case even a more mature dog if trained in the correct way will be able to learn even the most basic obedience lessons.

It is important to remember that if you are considering using any of the dog training tips that are free is that dog's attention span is not very long. So keep the training sessions you do with your dog as short as you possibly can. If you carry on for any length of time, they will soon become bored and lose interest in you and what you are trying to do with them.

When you are carrying out any kind of training with your dog it is a good idea that you do it when you are actually doing some other activity that they like. Doing this will help to keep them interested and so the likelihood of them becoming bored and wandering off is greatly reduced. Also throughout the session you should use as much positive reinforcement as you can praising them and providing them with rewards when they have produced the right result.

If you do find that you need to reprimand your dog then make sure that you keep it short and sharp. Also it is crucial that you reprimand them as soon as the bad behavior has occurred and not some time afterwards, as the dog will simply not understand why they have been told off. Remember a dog does not have a very long attention span and they live in the now rather than the past or the future.

Above we have offered you a number of different dog training tips that you may want to consider using as part of the training you do with your dog. Below we offer just a few more dog training tips free that you may find helpful as well.

When it comes to training your dog it is important that you establish yourself first as the pack leader (remember dogs are pack animals) and you can do this in a number of different ways. The easiest one is to get them laid down on the floor and start rubbing their belly. As soon as the dog rolls over and shows you their belly to rub they have submitted to you and now see you as the alpha dog (pack leader). By establishing yourself in the position of alpha dog (pack leader) you will find that when the training sessions are underway they will actually progress much more smoothly and easily.

It is important that when you are spending time training your dog you need to remember that it is going to take time. So you will need to have lots of patience and be persistent and consistent in your training methods. If you can achieve this, again this will help with making the training a much more pleasurable experience for both you and your dog. Hopefully the dog training free tips that we have provided above will help you when it comes to training your dog.
