When commencing your dog training, it is best that you know all of the different options you have available to you. It is possible to find many types of training, in lots of different places. These types of training lessons can vary in price with each one of them having something different to offer both you and your dog.
The intermediate training generally lasts up to 10 weeks, and is intended for dogs that are 5 months or older. Some professionals feel it is essential for participating dogs to have completed the basic training course to get the most out of this training, should your dog not be used to the basic training or commands not only will it hold his training back, but it could put him off further training. So it is important that your dog has become accustomed to the basic commands and understands what is expected of him.
Video Training – Video dog training may be the best alternative to expensive private lessons. Video lessons are much more affordable than hiring a professional trainer, obtainable at a fifth, sixth, or even a tenth of the cost. If you register for an online video dog training course, you will have the accountability of having to complete benchmarks or modules on time. Videos will help demonstrate exactly what you need to do with your dog to train him/her effectively. Plus, you are doing the training by yourself. This helps you to build a bond with your dog and doesn't confuse your dog as to who is actually boss between you or a trainer you hire.
There are probably as many dog training problems as there are dogs and trainers. That is because most of us don't have a clue about the right way to teach our dogs. Avoiding dog training problems means using the correct dog training methods right from the start when training your dog. Almost all of us make the same mistakes when training our dogs, and end up with various problems getting the results we expect with our training efforts. These problems then show up when our dogs don't listen to us-or only listen when they feel like it.
And, against the odds, a car is heading down the street on a collision course with Buster's path. The jerk on Sarah's hand jostles her back from mind-wandering to the scene unfolding. Fortunately she collects her thoughts quick enough to yell, ”BUSTER…HEEL! BUSTER COME!” ”Good Lord”, Sarah thinks out loud, ”whodda thought the hours Buster and I spent on obedience lessons would end up saving his life?” But that's just what happened. Sarah's voice control over her dog was the only impetus Buster needed to drop any thought of catching that squirrel, and simply do what he's done so many times before – obey his owner's simple commands. And that's just one of many possible scenarios where a simple obedience command could save your dog's life. He could slip out of his collar or bolt out an unattended open door. Enough said. Point made I hope.
Sincere appreciation is key. All too often, we get so caught up and focused on teaching our dogs that, just when we need to relax and enjoy the moment of success, we end up giving praise that is hollow, rehearsed, and frankly, not very praise-like at all. Keep in mind that the words are not important; it's your demeanor that counts. Praise doesn't need to have a certain tonal quality or pitch nearly as much as it needs to convey that you are sincerely pleased and happy at that moment. In other words, your dog should feel truly appreciated for a job well done – regardless of whether the success was a long sought-after quantum leap, or one of the many baby steps to success along the way.
The saying may be true that dog is man's best friend, but many can attest to the fact that it doesn't always start out that way! The simple truth is, some dogs are more inclined than others to behave themselves. Regardless, all dogs need some form of training to improve their behavior patterns. Some dogs have the bad habit of tearing up the front yard, while others just can't seem to stay out of the garbage can. Still others appear as though they will never get housebroken. There are even dogs that never seem to take a liking to other human beings, always snarling, growling or even biting strangers and relatives alike. Nevertheless, no dog is beyond training if taught properly how to behave. Starting with dog training basics, dog training problems can be a thing of the past.
