Short training sessions that are around fifteen – twenty minutes have been proven to be the most effective. Lengthy training sessions that go for hours will often make dogs frustrated and lose focus. Try to train your dog about two – three times every day. Remember to revise over previous and learned training once in a while so your dog does not forget. Do not get angry when training your dog if your dog doesn't get things right right away, it'll take practice and you must NEVER punish your dog, this will only have negative consequences for future training and may trigger behavioral problems. Reward your dog with praise or treats when it does the correct thing as this will encourage your dog to want to please you again next time you want your dog to do something.
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.
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.
