How To Train Your New Puppy The Right Way

By seeking out information on dog training, you've taken your first step in the right direction. This article contains exactly what you are looking for.

TIP! Make sure your dog stays calm as you enter a space that he is in. Playtime with them is great, however, they must learn to be calm when you're entering a room.

Dogs generally focus on one thing while ignoring everything around them, unless something interrupts that intense focus. With enough repetition, your dog will focus on other things less and less, opting to wait for signals from you.

TIP! Provide your puppy with his own chew toys to alleviate the pain of teething, and try to keep other items out of reach. Immediately replace the object with one of the intended chew toys.

To have success in training your dog, you need to be able to control it with commands. Your dog must understand that you're in control, so that he knows to obey and respect you. Never allow your dog pull on the leash while you are on a walk.

Establish a verbal cue to let your dog know when a command has been carried out to your satisfaction. A positive word will give your dog time to obey.

TIP! Use the right size crate for effective crate training. Puppies grow up quickly.

You can show your dog how to do tricks, get some treats. Initially, try to get your dog to lay on the floor. Then hold one treat near his head and near the floor. Pull the treat over the dog until your hand is on the other side. He should then roll over while following the treat. When he rolls over, you should say "roll over," and repeat the process until the command is all he needs to do so. Be persistent and do not give up; it might take a while but will be worth it once they learn it.

TIP! You need a commanding control if you are starting to train your dog. Your dog will not respect or obey you, unless you let him know that you are the boss.

Understand that getting your dog to respond during the times that you tell him or her 'no' is not helpful. Instead, use positive reinforcement to encourage positive behaviors and gloss past the results that are not what you want. Saying 'no' is not a good command, and the dog won't know how to react. Every dog and situation is unique and you should adapt your strategies accordingly.

TIP! To strengthen your training efforts, you can use a designated verbal command to help your animal know what your expectations are and when they have been fulfilled. If you do not have a treat you can reward your dog with, pet it and talk to it in a soft voice until you find a treat.

To maintain solid behavior, lifelong training is important. Puppy's aren't the only dogs that can learn. By continually reinforcing obedient behaviors and disciplining negative behaviors, you will have a dog that behaves appropriately.

TIP! Approach any unfamiliar dog with care. Walk slowly toward him and allow the dog to sniff your hand before trying to pet the dog.

In order to prevent barking, teach your dog to obey orders to be quiet. As the dog begins barking, display a treat and then repeat your order until the barking ceases. You can then give it the treat. Repetition will ensure the dogs learns that quiet is a good thing.

TIP! Let your dog get a minimum of an hour of exercise every day, and do this in addition to standard breaks outside for potty and training. If they are well-exercised, then you will have more efficient training.

If you pour too much information and training into your puppy, it will actually be counterproductive. Your puppy has a very short attention span, so start out with short sessions, and try to keep things enjoyable for both you and your pup. If training sessions are too long, the puppy won't remember the specifics of the training session, just that is was grueling and exhausting. This will make it harder to train him next time.

Use this information to accelerate your own canine training efforts. The right advice and strategy will help you know where to begin.
