The first command you should teach is SIT. With a few slight differences, most advice about dog training agree. The easiest way to teach this command is to cause the desired outcome to occur without much effort. For very young puppies, hold their food bowl above and behind their head. Your puppy looks up, loses his balance, and sits. You reinforce by saying the command, SIT, then praise puppy and reward with a treat. Repeat this process during each meal time and with treats until he will SIT on command without a food stimulus. Older dogs have better balance so an extra step may need to be used. Some dog training techniques suggest using a leash with no slack to keep your dog still, then just using a treat held above and behind his head, command SIT. If your dog resists, use your forefinger and thumb to apply pressure just in front of his hip bone or slide your hand over rump and apply pressure as you tuck legs and tail under to cause him to SIT. As always, praise and treat for desired result Every other fundamental command will build on the success of the SIT Command.
The saying may be true that dog is man's best friend, but many can attest to the fact that it doesn't always start out that way! The simple truth is, some dogs are more inclined than others to behave themselves. Regardless, all dogs need some form of training to improve their behavior patterns. Some dogs have the bad habit of tearing up the front yard, while others just can't seem to stay out of the garbage can. Still others appear as though they will never get housebroken. There are even dogs that never seem to take a liking to other human beings, always snarling, growling or even biting strangers and relatives alike. Nevertheless, no dog is beyond training if taught properly how to behave. Starting with dog training basics, dog training problems can be a thing of the past.
The number one dog training tip is to understand that your dog is not beyond training. In fact, your attitude and approach will have great impact on whether your dog gets trained or not. After all, nearly every dog wants to please their master. You need to keep in control of the training and not allow the dog to control you by getting upset or losing your temper. If you respond to his bad behavior by first understanding why he behaves that way in the first place, you will go a long way in gaining the upper hand and seeing him come into submission.
