Dog Training Tips and Advice

Dog training is a process that we do with our dogs, and not to our dogs. This is a very important thing to remember. It is more than telling your dog to stop his behavior. Dog training is communication, showing your dog how you want him to act in a way he understands.


Learning how to train your dog effectively is not rocket science, but it does take some basic knowledge. Remember to be patient when you are training your dog as it can take sometime for them to understand. Just like when we were little kids it took us time to understand things. Another reason to remember patience when dog training is that not every dog is the same.


One additional phrase that is often used right along with dog training is obedience training, so it is important for you to be able to pick that phrase up when it is used. Obedience training doesn’t solve all behavior problems for your dog, but it is the foundation for solving just about any problem.


In this article we will cover some of the basics of training your dog. One of the first things to remember is that you will want to be sure to reward your dog for doing the right thing, and you will want to discipline them in someway for being bad. Just remember that when you discipline them it is done quickly after you see them doing the bad behavior. The dog won’t understand why they were disciplined 5 minutes after they do something wrong. When disciplining the dog make sure that you are civil about it and do not harm your pet.


On the flip side when they do something good and they are not rewarded for it, the dog may not try to do that again. Your reward can be something as simple as petting them and saying “Good Boy” or “Good Girl”. The strategy mentioned above is known as a “positive training method”.


The most common things that people start with when training a dog is the sit command, stay command, come here, heal (walk closer when on a leash), and shaking of hands. These things are fun to teach a dog and when they learn them it is much easier to manage your pet and advance your training to other behaviors.


It’s our goal to show you that dog training is not rocket science, but it is 100% common sense. Unfortunately, dogs don’t come with instructions and most owners fail to realize that at least some basic knowledge of dog behavior and dog training is an essential responsibility in pet ownership. If you can understand that the main key element of dog training is simply getting your new pet to understand you, everything will be ok.
