Dog Training For Beginners

Training a dog is a fairly difficult task. Some find it to be very frustrating and simply send there dog or puppy to a professional trainer. Now if you have a dog that is completely wrecking or disrupting your life this may be a good idea. Before you take a look at a professional dog trainer you may want to try out some of these tips.

1. Make training fun for your dog. This means in order to get your dog to listen to you you need to reward him when he does things right. This means you need to praise your dog with treats and hugs.

2. If your dog is just a puppy you need to have very good patience. Puppies take longer getting used to the surrounding of there new home.

3. Potty training can be difficult for puppies because they have week bladders. The only way around this is to take him for walks in the mourning and at night. If he goes to the bathroom out side reward your puppy or dog.

4. You should never hit your dog. Its very important that you don't use any form of physical contact. Dogs need to trust there owners. If your dog doesn't trust you any more then you will find it hard to get him to obey.

5. Be consistent with your demands. If one person in your home lets him sleep on the bed then the rest will have to do the same. You simply cant have one person praising your dog and the other person screaming at it for the same thing.

These are all just some basic tips and advice for training your dog. It does help to have a good understanding of a dogs behaviour, but it certainly isn't needed. The most important thing you can do is to just love and praise your dog when it obeys.
