It is strongly advisable that you properly prepare your self and have an idea of what's to be expected when training your dog. Many types of dogs have different needs so it would be helpful to perform a little research about your dogs breed before you commence training. After thorough research and you feel that you're ready, then you can begin training your d. Dog training is split into two categories; behavior training and obedience training. Behavior training is when you are stopping or fixing unwanted tendencies in your dog like nipping, biting, chewing, whining, excessive barking, jumping, chasing cars, climbing on furniture, digging holes, etc. Obedience training is when you are training your dog to perform specific actions and commands. The objective is to get your dog to obey the commands and do them when requested every time. These instructions include the simple sit, come, heel, down, and many more.
Dogs are amazing creatures. They adapt to countless situations. They are phenomenal at associations: including learning the meaning or implication of many sounds, such as human language. A dog's ”vocabulary” can reach upward of 150 distinct words! However, regardless of how smart, how skilled, and how adaptable they are, dogs will never be verbal animals. Their first language, so to speak, is not words, but body language. Because of this, it's only natural that your dog will interpret your words though a ”filter” – of body language, facial expression, tone of voice, even your attention. And if one or more of these ”disagree” with the words you are using, most dogs will ”obey” your body language!
Your training may save someone else's life. Also not too far fetched, especially if your dog is one of the so-called ”at risk” breeds, known for their capability and proclivity to inflict injury or worse on people if provoked or if threatened. Or, more likely, if they perceive their owner is being threatened. Humor me and picture another scene. A man is relaxing at home with his Rottweiler Manfred, watching the weekend football game. He hears a knock on the front door, but before he can even get up, walk towards the door and open it, in walks his lumberjack uncle from Vancouver whom he hasn't seen in more than twenty five years. He's big and burly and one of those touchy-feely boisterous types. He opens his arms, strides towards the man with a bellowing voice to give him a big bear hug. Manfred, who followed his owner to the door, sees his master about to be mauled by this loud, huge, human stranger and he instinctively attacks the uncle. A powerful Rottweiler protecting his master versus a perceived human threat. My money is on the Rottweiler. Unless of course, the dog received proper obedience training by his master, who could then quickly diffuse the life-threatening attack with an authoritative ”MANFRED…HEEL!”. Again, I'm sure you can envision dozens of ways a similar scenario could play out that could result in serious injury or worse. Large, poorly behaved, disobedient dogs can be much more than an annoyance; they can be dangerous. Obedience training is imperative. Especially for owners of big dogs. That's all the stories, I promise.
