This is a very brief overview of training techniques and sequences to use while training your dog the fundamental commands. Repetition will be required several times while training. The increase of distance and duration, as well as the introduction of distractions, will also require repetition. Patience and time will need to be devoted while training these commands. I think you will find that if you begin to train your dog with these fundamental commands, you will find the more technical training will be easier for both you and your dog.
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.
Unlike aversive training, reward training doesn't require you to be infallibly consistent in your reactions to your dog's misbehaviors. You don't need to reward your dog every time he does as you ask – in fact, he'll learn just as quickly (if not more so) if the rewards he receives for desired behavior are intermittent and unpredictable instead of being given every time he performs the behavior. And, above all, if you make mistakes with aversive training you risk losing your dog's trust. That won't happen with reward training, where mistakes might temporarily confuse your dog, but they won't cause him to become aggressive or fear or mistrust you.
