Pomeranian Training Controlling Yappiness




There are a few key elements involved with Pomeranian training that may differ from your average dog training techniques. Pomeranians are curious, energetic and excitable. They can have a short attention span because they just have so much playing and exploring to do, so teaching them one thing at a time is important. Pomeranians are excellent alarm dogs. If their yappiness is kept under control, you will have a very good watch dog. The yappy Pomeranian often barks at everyone and everything, but there are dog training techniques to keep this behavior under control.





Socialization



The number one thing that you can do to quash yappiness is to socialize them. Pomeranian training should include introductions to people, places and pets. The more they meet, the more they will feel comfortable with. The Pomeranian is a suspicious little dog and often develops a yappy reaction to all that it finds strange. Have friends come over, take them with you on errands and keep them engaged. Not only will you socialize them, but you will strengthen your bond and solidify your Pomeranian training.





Come when Called



Pomeranian training, like all dog training, must have a foundation. You will have a hard time teaching your dog anything if they dont respond to you. For a Pomeranian, this is your first step in controlling yappiness. When your Pomeranian begins to bark incessantly, instead of yelling at them (which just perpetuates the behavior), give them the command to come to you. When they do come, praise them and redirect the negative barking behavior to something more suitable like a toy.





Because of their compact size, you can bring your Pomeranian with you to many places. They are a fantastic lap dog. If they are yapping, you can call them to you and praise them for coming to you by holding and petting them for a bit. Having them come when called reliably will also allow you to keep tabs on your fast and feisty Pomeranian.





One Command at a Time



Keep is simple. This is also a key factor for Pomeranian training. One word cues work best; come, sit, stay, no, down, quiet, etc. Remember that you are teaching these commands one at a time. Start with come and work on it every day for a week till it is ingrained in your Pomeranians head. Once they are doing that command reliably, move on to the next command. Eventually your dog training will create a well behaved little Pomeranian.





You can use bark collars or ultrasonic devices, but these are not permanent fixes like Pomeranian training is. They only work when the device is on and in some cases are considered cruel. Plus, a Pomeranian is delicate and such no barking devices can be detrimental to their health. They might not even be effective. For instance, if you did try a shock collar because of their thick double layered coat they may never feel the shock when they barked.





Dog training can control the yappy behavior, but remember that the Pomeranian is an excellent watch dog and a certain amount of barking is okay. The Pomeranian develops a close bond with its family and tries its best to protect them. They alarm bark when they perceive a threat. It is when they bark to an excess that the Pomeranian training comes in handy.
