Dog Training

Discover the right things to do when training your dog.

Obedience training will help you achieve that goal easily. Of course you have to feed your dog properly and groom him from time to time, but obedience training is probably the most difficult task you'll encounter when raising your puppy. It's not that it's some kind of rocket science, anyone can do it easily, the problem is that most people aren't aware of it or don't know what to do in so many different situations.

Learn how to train your dog and you'll have a much better companion for life. Believe me, no one can tolerate a bad behaved dog for long.


Correcting your dog is very important, don't go for the old harsh methods. Correcting your dog the wrong way will cause him to become very nervous and "shaky".

A dog should always be considered a good thing and not a plague of some sort. Be sure to train him properly so you can both enjoy each other everyday.

-Training should not always be done with just you and your dog. Involve other people or animals, just make sure the other animals aren't aggressive. In this way the dog will stay calmer and will be more gentle to people and animals.

-Command your dog and not the other way around Give him attention and care for him but beware of the dog testing your authority. Don't let him be on top, ever. If he barks at you to open a door or something similar you must be careful because if you do it he will be commanding you. Eventually you will have to open the door for him, but only when you see fit, not him.


-Your dog will have to be corrected sometimes but avoid punishment methods at all costs. I can't stress out this enough, you must really be the dog's leader.


-Socialize your dog with children from the start, but always supervise any playing around.

You are your dog's best trainer due to the time you will be spending with him. You're the right person for the job, don't quit this. It can be useful to use a dog trainer's skills, but you still have to continue your dog's training.


Everytime you interact with your dog you're training him. There're some simple things you should do, but they are crucial to your dog's behavior, like:


-Coherent an uniform training will get you the results you want

-By redirecting behaviors you don't fight the dog's instincts, you use them

-Prevention is key to avoid most accidents


-Have patience, your dog is not human so he learns a lot slower

-Common sense is very important, when in doubt check the web or speak to a dog trainer

-Your dog is exactly that, a dog not a person. He learns in a different way.
