Communicate composure. Be still. Whether you are working on a stationary exercise (such as a sit-stay), or a moving exercise (such as heeling, or a recall), focus on keeping your body language ”quiet”. Don't bury your cue in a gush of confusing, meaningless gestures or activity. Allow your dog to focus on your words and any intended hand or body signals; don't put him in a position to have to sort the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Once your dog is more advanced in his training, you may wish to teach him to respond to verbal cues despite unrelated body language. But for now – first things first. Walk before you run!
If you are having a hard time teaching your dog basic commands through your current dog training methods, the answer may lie in finding the right dog training aids. Many frustrated owners resort to dog obedience training classes, but there are a number of cost-effective training aids that you can use yourself to help take control of your dog. Before you begin any dog obedience training regimen, it is important to know a major mistake that many pet owners make while trying out various dog training methods. All too often, many pet owners feel that simply shouting ”Sit!” or ”Stop!” and waving their hands at their dog should automatically result in their pet ”picking up” on their animated cues. Although your pet may develop a semblance of understanding after a length of time, raising your voice and shouting is not an effective approach. The problem is not deafness with your dog, it's processing.
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.
