DIY – Things To Do When Training Your Dog

Give your dog a name that is effective. He needs to be able to learn his name quickly, in order to hold his focus during training.

Schedule enough time. You must set aside 15-20 minutes a few times each day for proper training sessions. Pups have a short attention span and get bored easily, just like a toddler would.

Prepare your mental state for coaching sessions. When you’re working with your dog, be excited and upbeat. Don’t forget, training isn’t about dominating our pets. It is about communicating together. Be firm and gentle.

Choose the gear that is suitable. A 6 foot leash and flat collar or martingale collar may be all the you need to begin, besides your treats.

Give instant benefits. Dogs do not understand long-term cause and effects. They learn fast. You have to praise or reward your pet within 2 seconds of a desirable behavior to encourage that behavior. He is not going to associate the reward with all the actions you asked him to perform in the event you wait a long time.

Be consistent. Your pet won’t comprehend what you desire from him if his environment lacks consistency.

Train on an empty stomach. The more your dog needs the treat, the more focused he will be around the endeavor he needs to perform to get it.

Discourage barking. While other circumstances it may be out of discouragement, occasionally they bark at you for attention.

Do not raise your voice to get his attention. Save the large booming voice for life-saving scenarios, like if he escapes his fence or leash. When you do have to cry if you seldom raise your voice, you will get your dog’s undivided attention. But if you are constantly “loud” for your dog, they’re going to dismiss that sound and tune out. Screaming will no more be regarded as something that commands special attention.
