Dog Training Essentials

Author : Rae Basa

A dog is man's best friend. They are always there in times of need, especially during tough times. Remember that time when you are feeling blue and can't find anyone else to talk to except your pet dog? They never fail in listening to all your problems. Love and care are two things you can give your dog as payment for all of these, but you can also look into giving them training..

Proper actions is the first target in dog training, starting with the most basic techniques. Take note that human principles do not apply when training dogs. Communication is critical between owner and pet, so that commands can easily be learned by the dog. Also, do not forget to encourage the dog for every desirable action and to correct any undesirable ones.

Basic commands:

1. Up.

2. Heel

3. Sit

4. Down

5. Close

6. Recall

7. Stay

Do a thorough check of your dog's health first before thinking about training it. Some dogs experience separation anxiety which then end up in a violent behavior. While some other dogs that bark and bite a lot are experiencing the lack of communication between the owner and them. Go seek professional help if your dog shows any of the said symptoms .

Listed below are some basic tips in training your dog :

? Set up boundaries during training and always make sure that your dog is within the boundaries all the time or else the training will all be in vain. The dog won't take the training seriously unless you implement the rules sternly.

? Claim the position of master and he is below you in authority.

? Be clear to him what is his completely wrong of his behavior.

? Don't resort to punishing your dog, it may turn bitter and consider it a very traumatic experience..

? Have patience. Patience will be your greatest weapon in training your dog. Remember that dogs can't easily comprehend whatever you are saying. Always consider giving him time to realize every new rule or command.

? Make sure the training would be fun and pleasurable for your dog. On each training session concentrate on one command for him to familiarized easily and if he did the right command several times then give him a reward for being a good dog. Before the session ends it is also important to praise your dog for his job well done and spend alone time with him even more to create closeness between the two of you and so to let him see you as his master.

? Remember to stay positive. Do not lose hope when all else fails. When your dog is not doing as well as you expect he should, don't consider it bad right away, just look at the bright side. Maybe someday he will learn faster without effort . Always use positive reinforcement to avoid your dog from developing trauma on you.
