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.
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.
Private Training – This type of training involves paying an hourly rate for one-on-one with a professional dog trainer at some sort of training facility (or perhaps in your home for a higher price rate). This can be an extremely effective method of training your dog. Because you are there with your dog, you are shown exactly what movements and actions to take and your dog benefits from a professional hand. However, this training is easily the most expensive, because professional trainers often charge 20, 40, or even up to 100 dollars an hour for their expertise. In addition, if you don't find a trainer who is knowledgeable enough to deal with all of your dog's tendencies or if you simply don't ”click” with your trainer, your time and money can easily slip down the drain with very little observable results. Also, working extensively with another trainer has the potential to confuse your dog as to who he/she should actually respond to. When this happens, sometimes dogs who behave very well around the professional trainer act poorly at home when you are in charge.
