The last fundamental command that is a must while beginning to train your dog is the command COME. This command seems so easy, after all all dogs want to come to you, right? The problem with training your dog to COME is that owners do not use it often enough in daily interactions. Your dog will COME when you open the refrigerator door. The command needs to be reinforced by putting your dog in SIT and STAY, then by changing your location, command COME, and use your dog's name. Praise and reward with each and every desired result. One very important point to remember is NEVER correct or discipline your dog for responding to the COME command. The reality is that when you need your dog to respond to COME the most is when his safety is at risk. Your dog has run out and could be in danger of street traffic,. COME returns your dog to the safety of your home. Your fear response will instinctively make you want to correct your dog for running out. Remain consistent with your training, praise and reward your dog.
Books and Training Guides – There are many hundreds of dog training books, audio courses, magazines, and websites available to you. Obviously, buying a $15 dog training book is much more cost-efficient than paying perhaps a couple hundred dollars to attend training lessons. However, training your dog with a book is difficult because you have no one to help you understand poorly-explained principles. You also have no one to demonstrate actions and movements to you. Since dog training involves many time-sensitive movements and actions, as well as slight movements and positions that can easily be improperly implemented, it is imperative in your dog training that you can see those actions demonstrated for you. Additionally, training your dog using a book or written guide provides very little accountability and motivation for most dog trainers. Much more often than not, dog owners quit regular training sessions with their dog before they complete the book or guide.
You'll be rewarded with a much happier dog. Obedience training is one of the most important aspects of raising a dog. In fact, a well trained dog is by far a happier dog! Why? Because a trained dog requires fewer restrictions. The more reliable the dog, the more freedom he is given. For example, many stores and businesses that normally won't allow dogs on their premises will make an exception for a puppy or a dog that will heel nicely by his owner's side, or will do a sit-stay or down-stay without hesitation. And when company arrives in your home, there's no need to banish a well-behaved dog to another room for fear that he will be a royal nuisance. Moreover, because a well-mannered, obedience-trained dog is both appreciated and welcomed, he receives more attention and interaction from family members, visitors, and passers-by, than does the ill-mannered dog.
