Are you having difficulty with your dog training?
Perhaps your dog is not listening to you? Well, mostly they do, unless there's another dog around, for instance? Or perhaps you've just rescued a dog and need to teach the basics. Or perhaps it's just time to train your dog.
Training your dog if really important. It's not just about obedience. It really is about helping your dog to understand how to live with us; how to realise what it is that you're trying to say to them. If they don't understand what you're asking of them, then life can be very confusing and perhaps even cause frustration or stress. Of course its best to go through life with your dog being able to just talk to them and they'll do what you want rather than shouting NO and telling them off all the time.
Here are 5 simple steps to help you be successful with your dog training:
Step 1: Understand what your trying to achieve
Step 2: Understand why what you're doing isn't working
Step 3: Teach your dog clearly what your want
Step 4: Practice
Step 5: Progress
Modern dog training is about helping your dog to want to do something using reward based methods. Punishment has no place in dog training these days. It really quite easy to help your dog to learn your language, and have fun and enjoy the whole training process. (Well, mostly - if you need dog behaviourist help, please look here)
