These days the best trainers emphasize that training should be done in a manner that communicates with the dog on the dog's level. All too often we make the mistake of talking to our dogs as if they were just a fuzzy four legged version of a human. In a well done dog training program you will learn what not to do when you are training your pet, as well as what you should do-avoid making costly mistakes in the first place.
Clicker Dog Training – While widely unknown to many dog parents, arguably one of the best dog training aids that works well with any breed of dog is the ”clicker.” If you have never heard of the term ”clicker training” before, you have most likely witnessed or heard of examples of this type of training. Skateboarding bulldogs, beer fetching retrievers, Babe the Pig, Beethoven. Sound familiar? Check any of these animal antics out, and you've been amazed by the effects of powerful clicker training and the best obedience training methods in action. The clicker is a small mechanical noisemaker that was developed in response to lead behaviorists' demands for more effective training methods. Aside from its effectiveness, unlike a number of other dog training aids, this form of dog obedience training is very gentle and offers a ”hands off” approach to pet training. What your dog actually learns is to associate the strong, sharp sound of the clicker, which can be heard as far as 20 yards away, with your given command.
The Lie Down Command – Once your dog has mastered the sit command, you can progress to the ”Lie Down” command. A treat is also used to accomplish this. First ask your dog to ”Sit”. Do not give him a treat for sitting. While he is in the sitting position you should have a treat in your hand and hold it in front of him, very close to the floor and say ”Lie Down”. If necessary place your other hand on your dogs shoulders and gently press down until your dog lies down or give him a gentle tug downward on his leash. Once your dog lies down, reward him immediately with a treat and say ”Good Boy” in a happy voice and pet him vigorously showing him you are pleased with his response to your ”Lie Down” command. The tone of your voice is important to let your pet know you are pleased with his response to your command.
When considering training a dog, most owners only give thought to basic dog obedience classes. However in doing so, they ultimately end up limiting what a dog is capable of accomplishing. In addition, basic obedience is the extent of the training offered by many dog trainers. The fact is though, some dog training facilities offer a large variety of dog training classes that teach much more than just dog obedience training. They are looking to provide you as the owner and your dog a much bigger selection. By doing so, knowledge gained from any of these specialty classes will help to bring out the best in your dog and maximize his potential.
It isn't a stretch to say that as long as there have been human culture and civilization, dogs have been part of it. When society was agricultural, dogs were important in protecting livestock and herding sheep and cows. But as people began to realize how easy it was to train dogs, they began to be used in other agricultural chores as well as in military and police functions. Then dogs were bred and trained for the very purpose of serving people's working need: Hunting, herding, protection and pulling.
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.
You'll lay the foundation for a very happy home. I think it would be safe to say that obedience training benefits everyone. Dog, dog owner, dog owner's family, neighbors, visitors to the home, strangers and other dogs met on walks and family outings, the dog's vet and her staff, the folks at the boarding facility and the groomers, the mailman. You get the idea. There's just no downside to having a well trained dog. Done properly, the process will be enjoyable and the results will be well worth time and effort expended. A well-behaved, obedient dog is a pleasure to have around. No worries about damage to the home. No need to disrupt daily family living with constant disciplining the dog for behaviors that may be natural to the dog, but very upsetting to the family. No worries about children playing with the dog. No concerns when a visitor stops by the home. Walks are leisurely and a pleasure. No need to take detours should you see another dog approaching. No fretting about a well-meaning child reaching down to pet your dog. Car rides with your dog are uneventful.
