Dog Training

This is perhaps one of the most challenging issues facing a dog owner, be it a puppy or a wild one.

– Does your dog seldom listen to you?
– Do the barking, the biting or the housebreaking issues drive you crazy?
– Are you embarrassed by your dog in public?
-… Or maybe you just want a happy, disciplined dog?

Are you ready to get your dog to listen to you, anywhere you go? And fix all of your dog's behavior problems, the quick and easy way? And make your dog a happy and affectionate companion in the process?

Good. Because you're about to learn the same techniques used by professional dog trainers to save time and money by learning dog obedience training that does not require you to waste time using stuff that does not deliver maximum results in minimal time.

All dog owners should know some basic training methods, as it will prove helpful to you in long run. And basic training for your dog implies the achievement of a basic education for the dog – the learning, communication and responding to basic obedience commands.

Some of the most basic training command that should be taught in the first place are:

* Come
* Sit
* Stay
* Wait
* Down
* Stand
* Okay
* No
* off
* Leave it
* Drop it

ALWAYS BE A CONSISTENT COMMANDER – Basic dog training methods can be taught efficiently and effectively by repeating with the same commands, pointing out the desired action, reinforcing the good behavior and keeping your dog's attention. You do it by calling out the same basic commands many times during the day including during play time and while walking your dog.

TIMING YOUR DOG'S TRAINING – One of these key aspects concerns the time of the training sessions. Dogs respond best to short, sharp commands so training moments with your dog should be short, intense and interesting so that he would not loose his attention, interest and capability of responding to the demands. Starting with small goals or 10 minutes of intensive training may go a long way in helping your dog to train successfully. Dog training must always be only delivered when your dog is alert. The best time to train your dog is when it's hungry.

DO NOT GIVE IN TO YOUR DOG'S EVERY DESIRE – Always exercise discipline first and then affection. Never give out rewards just because your dog gives you a pitiful or cute look but only when he or she performs a correct behavior. Once your dog has learned your commands and hand signals, begin to give less rewards.

Conclusion, it is always a pleasure to own any dogs with some form of basic training. They are fun, reliable, less unintentionally to misbehave and will not only exhibit good behavior and manner but it will also benefit everyone.
