Without a good dog training book you just lack the information you should have to do the best job training your dog. If you are using the wrong techniques, or sending out confusing messages to your dog because of inconsistency, you could spend months trying to train your dog without getting good results. You will just end up being angry and frustrated, and your dog will end up confused and only partially trained. Obedience training your dog should be fun, not a grind. By making the experience positive and fun, both you and your dog will really come to enjoy the daily training sessions and create a lifelong bond between you. So, get started the right way by choosing a great dog training book for the help you need to get the best results.
The Body Language of Effective Dog Training. Training your dog is the ultimate expression of leadership: you are taking the initiative to teach, guide, and direct your dog. Your body language, therefore, should reflect your role as teacher and leader, communicating a calm self-confidence and composure. Let's look at the components of non-verbal communication as they affect your dog: Invite learning with your facial expression and demeanor. Your body language begins at the top, with your face. Training should be a positive, pleasant experience for you and your dog. Before you begin, and periodically throughout, consciously relax your facial muscles. Smile gently. Soften your eyes. Take a deep, relaxing breath, and keep breathing! When you are relaxed and happy, you present a safe haven for your dog's attention. (And there is nothing to be tense about, right? This is dog training, not world peace!) A soft eye will invite your dog to seek out your face, whereas a hard stare may intimidate your dog into breaking off eye contact, reducing your ability to communicate clearly.
Group Lessons – Group dog training sessions are when multiple dog owners and their dogs work with a teacher, usually a professional or semi-professional dog trainer, for a certain number of class periods. These lessons can also be called clinics or obedience classes. Group lessons are more affordable than private lessons and can also help socialize your dog because you're around many other animals and owners for extended periods of time. However, the cost is still higher than other training methods and you don't get nearly the amount of attention and help from the trainer running the course than you would in a private lesson setting. Additionally, oftentimes the instructors for group lessons may be less experienced or qualified than if you were to seek out a professional to give you private training.
