A cute puppy can melt anyone’s heart. If you are the owner of a new pet you are very lucky! Training is essential to having a good relationship with your pup. Once your pet knows what you expect from them, you will be able to leave them home alone without worrying. Read the guide below in order to get helpful tips on how to have a good pet/owner relationship.
Establish a calm environment when you enter a room that your dog is in. Playtime with them is great, however, they must learn to be calm when you’re entering a room. Avoid acknowledging him as you enter. This helps to maintain a controlled atmosphere.
Use control to acknowledge positive behavior while training. When your dog responds to a command in the right way, you should reward this behavior when he is calm. If you get excited, the dog will become excited and everything will be out of control. Remain calm, expect the dog to be calm and provide appropriate rewards.
You must stay consistent while you are crate training young puppies. When the dog is let out of the crate, it is necessary to give him a chance to relive himself right away. Over time, the puppy will learn to wait until he is in this location.
Multiple repetitions will be necessary for a dog to learn new commands. You might have to keep repeating something to a dog as much as fifty times for it to ‘click’. Continue repeating the command patiently, and eventually your dog will understand it.
Keep your tone of voice consistent when training dogs. Your dog will learn to recognize your tone and know they should obey. It also helps the dog to understand the difference between a sharp tone for discipline and a sharp but non-punishing command.
You can rest assured that when you train your puppy, they may have an accident in the house. Clean accidents as quickly as you can. If the mess stays on the area for too long, it can leave a scent behind that your animal may return to in the future to do his business. A pet shop in your area will carry products specifically for this problem.
Treats are great incentives when training a dog; however, treats can cause a dog to become overweight, so limit the number offered. Many people do not factor in treats when they are tabulating a pet’s diet, but they do add up, particularly while you are training.
Consistency makes it easier to teach your dog how to control himself. Take your dog to the bathroom at least once each hour. When the dog eliminates outside, offer it praise. Don’t punish your dog for eliminating inside the house. Your dog knows no better, and your yelling is not going to change things. Instead, give the pet every chance to succeed by taking it outside as soon as you remove it from the crate and roughly 15 minutes after it eats or drinks.
Hopefully, you’ve read the tips listed here and learned a thing or two when it comes to having a good owner/pet relationship. Apply the information that fits your circumstances. Perhaps your heart has been stolen by a sweet, little puppy or your faithful dog. Training is a key to success! Your dog needs to be properly trained. Have fun with your four-legged friend!
