STAY is another command that every dog should know. Building on SIT, stand beside your dog with the leash taunt, held straight above his head. Incorporate hand signals and place your open palm in front of dog's nose. Say STAY and move in front of your dog to block his forward movement. If he moves, repeat hand signal and STAY command. If he stays, move back next to him, make him hold his STAY for a few seconds, praise and treat. As with each dog training technique, continue to slowly increase increments of distance and hold time with each training lesson. An additional element when training your dog to STAY is the three D's. Duration, Distraction, and Distance. As I just mentioned, it is important to slowly increase the increments of Duration and Distance but Distraction must be introduced to test your dogs understanding of this command. Be sure to add distraction while training your dog before the distance gets too long. Common distractions would be someone entering the training area with a toy, another dog walking by, etc.
The first golden rule when training your dog is to teach your dog its name. Use it on a regular basis, call your dog by its name every time you play with it. Once your dog is aware of its name and comes when called then you are ready to make the leap and begin obedience training. The very next big thing on your priority checklist should be to toilet train and house train your dog. Do you really wish to have to put up with your dog eliminating everywhere in the house for more than you really have to? Of course not, so it is necessary that you deal with this as quickly as you can. Over the course of the training process accidents are inevitable, particularly if you've got a puppy, puppies cannot hold it in that long yet however they'll be able to hold it in longer as they get older. It is your responsibility as a dog owner to simply clean up the mess till your dog has been toilet trained.
How Effective is Clicker Training? With proper clicker dog training, tasks that are learned can be recalled by a dog years after the initial training took place, even if no further practice took place. The clicker strategy has been held in such regard, the method was employed by the U.S. Department of Defense in training animals for undercover missions in the 1960s. In a more recent example of its effectiveness, the clicker method was used by one Vermont animal shelter to successfully teach timid cats to act more ”outgoing” when would-be adopters entered the adoption room. By far what may come as the most surprising, you can find a clicker at your local pet store for only about two dollars. While clicker training can be easier than you think, be advised, before you begin working with the clicker make sure to follow the proper techniques. Do not pick up the device and try your best guess at training your dog. Enlist the help of proven clicker dog training strategies to avoid disappointment, and you will be well on your way to training your dog with these proven powerful dog training methods.
Dog Training Advice – Consistency, its essential. Dogs learn things by means of repetition, this has been clearly established already. So, for you to have any success in controlling your dog or dogs, you need to be CONSISTENT. Yes, this is truly the one most important thing when it comes to dog training. Whether you live alone or have a huge family at home, dog training is essential to maintain peace and harmony, never mind the bank balance. This is essential if you have a family or share your home with other people. You will need to educate the family or other people as well, so that the dog sees a CONSISTENT chain of command. Sounds very military, but I suppose this attitude is required if you want to eliminate bad dog behavior. There is no point in you putting in all the effort to get your dog trained and well behaved, just for the rest of the family to go and ruin it all. This will really make your dog confused as well.
Any dog that exhibits a bad personality doesn't need the situation compounded with your bad attitude. You need to remain calm and show patience and a positive reinforcement when your dog obeys your command. If you don't allow your impatience, anger or frustration to affect your training approach, you will strengthen his desire to respond to the training in a positive manner. He will be more inclined to listen than to resist your commands.
There are many training techniques and philosophies that claim to be the fastest, easiest or most affective way to train your dog. The one thing that every dog training technique seem to mirror is that positive reinforcement and reward is the most effective. The second thing that all training techniques have in common is that the first step is to teach the dog fundamental commands. These fundamental commands will be the foundation of communication between canine and human.
For as long as people have kept historical records, we can find accounts of a strong bond between people and dogs. In primitive times when hunting was man's only way to survive, people realized that using dogs could make the hunt more successful. This partnership was more than just people dominating animals because dogs and humans worked as partners with a goal benefit both species. Dogs and their human companions developed an unspoken ability to understand each other. So throughout history, when dog training was designed, it was focused on the working relationship between dogs and people.
