  • ==== ====For details of ther best dog training courses - check this outwww.coursesindogtraining.com==== ====Well, to begin with, lets do away with the myth that your dog appears to think like a human, theydo not. I know this is hard to believe and we all love to believe that our good boy is actually quitesmart. The truth is the dog will react to you. You therefore need to educate yourself in order totrain your dog. People often make huge unintentional mistakes with regards to training dogs,purely because they do not understand the dogs mind. Your dog requires certain key factors inorder to be correctly trained and you need to know how to do this. Basically you need to armyourself with the best dog training tools available in the market today. This may comprise ofphysical devices along with solid training advice. Your dog only really wants to be a loyal memberof his dog pack. Dogs behave instinctively, being an animal, this is quite normal. All they want isacceptance. In order to change any bad dog behavior you need to focus on changing the way yourdog expresses his natural dog instincts. Screaming and being angry with your dog will not train thedog. This will just create fear and lack of confidence within your dog.Core Dog Training AdviceThere are many areas in which one could train your dog. Some of these areas are purely forrecreational activities. For instance, you may want your dog to do tricks like rollover or give paw,etc. These are just for bragging rights really, see how clever my dog is. However, there is a moreserious side to training. Here you would need some more advanced dog training tools or advice.This type of training involves, maintaining control of your dog when out in public or in your ownhome when strange people are visiting, for instance. Heaven knows what a badly behaved dogcan get up to if not kept in check. Bad dog behavior can cost their owners dearly, so it is advisableto focus on these aspects of dog training. Here are a few of the basics with regards to dog training.As we all know this is quite a vast topic, so we will cover some more well known dog behaviorproblems. There are plenty of, paid for,and worth every cent, professional instructional guides outthere. Lets take a look at some of these bad dog behavior issues which require training of yourdog, now.Crate Training:This type of dog training tool should not be abused, for example when you want time out from yourpet dog. Crate training should be used to properly house train your dog. You may also want tofamiliarize your dog with the crate for those times when he will be travelling with you on a airplanefor instance. The idea is to confine the dog to the crate for a short period of time, lets say 1 hour.Upon release from the crate you should take the dog outside to allow him to do his business. If thedog does his business then a reward in the form of a healthy dog treat or lavishing them withaffection is in order. Once again, we see here good behavior associated with reward. Quickpointers here, always be at home when using the crate, do not lock the dog in the crate overnight,make sure the dog is comfortable in the crate. Never allow the crate to be seen as a form of
  • punishment for your dog. Dogs react instinctively and as such, should not be shouted at or beatenfor doing what comes naturally. Always bear this in mind when your dog has done somethingwhich we humans just do not understand. There is usually some good dog reason for doingwhatever he has done.Leash Training:If your dog is pulling your arm out of its socket every time you take him walkies, its time for properleash training. You need to assume control of your dog when he is on the leash. Never allow yourdog to get over excited when he sees the leash or becomes aware that you are going to take himfor a walk. If necessary make your dog sit and stay whilst you go and open the door. Then comeback, put on his leash, only if he has behaved and listened to your commands. Repetition is keyhere, if you want to be rid of his over zealous behavior. Also, as long as your dog is in this hypedup state he will not listen to any commands you may give him. Whilst walking your dog, you shouldalways be in control. The dog should not be leading you around. By all means let the dog sniffabout and so forth, but not throughout the whole walk. Also, if he does not refrain from pulling,then make him sit and stay next to your side until he understands that you are the Alpha Dog andare therefore in charge. The dog will soon come to understand that his walk will be stopped eachtime he pulls.The Alpha Position:Every domesticated dog needs to be trained in this area. By no means should your dog be allowedto assume this role in your home or outdoors for that matter. Dogs do not speak, they bark, exceptfor the Basenji breed of course, so do not assume dogs understand human language. Ultimatelyyour dog needs to know that you are in charge and as such, your dog can relax, knowing that youwill protect him. I know this sounds strange, as many of us assume the dog is there to protect us.Make no error, your dog will certainly "come to the party" when his pack or any one of its membersis under threat. This serves to re-enforce the concept of establishing the pack roles so that yourdog knows exactly who is in and who is not.Obedience Training:Now I do not know about you, but I certainly was not born an expert in dog training. So here, Iwould say its advisable to try and attend some good obedience training classes. This is especiallytrue, if you are a new dog owner or have never really had any professional advice from people thathave been doing this on a daily basis. Of course everything you are taught at these classes can beused in your home training. These classes can provide a solid foundation for aspects such as,assuming the alpha position, house training, issuing commands and even managing your oldermore mature dogs. Once you have the basics there is a wealth of advice, products and knowledgeout there from experts in their fields, which will empower you. It may cost a little, but I would ratherbe penny wise than pound foolish.Dog Training Advice - Consistency, its essential.Dogs learn things by means of repetition, this has been clearly established already. So, for you tohave any success in controlling your dog or dogs, you need to be CONSISTENT. Yes, this is trulythe one most important thing when it comes to dog training. Whether you live alone or have a
  • huge family at home, dog training is essential to maintain peace and harmony, never mind thebank balance. This is essential if you have a family or share your home with other people. You willneed to educate the family or other people as well, so that the dog sees a CONSISTENT chain ofcommand. Sounds very military, but I suppose this attitude is required if you want to eliminate baddog behavior. There is no point in you putting in all the effort to get your dog trained and wellbehaved, just for the rest of the family to go and ruin it all. This will really make your dog confusedas well.Always remember that any knowledge gained through classes, a quality online book you havebought or merely by reading these articles, is going to benefit you ultimately. After all,KNOWLEDGE is POWER, and that is so true. Your dog may be physically more powerful thanyou, but you dominate because of KNOWLEDGE.Hi, my names Derek and I am a Dog Lover and Enthusiast.
