Free dog training tips

  1. 1. ==== ====For details of ther best dog training courses - check this ====If your goal for Dog Training is to train your dog to do tricks or get rid of aggressive dog behavior,potty train, keep his barking from irritating your neighbors, get him to not jump all over yourvisitors, general dog care, or to just be able to trust him with your other pets, then Free DogTraining Tips is a great place to start.I have heard people claim that they were at their wits end and about ready to get rid of their dog."My dog just doesnt get it!" or "Nobody can train my dog, hes too stupid." We think of sending theanimal away to a professional dog trainer and hope that would solve our problems. The truth isthat usually dog training requires training the owner as much as the dog itself. Even when the dogis trained by a professional it is often just a temporary fix. Eventually the dog returns to old habits.When a dog owner finally understands a few basic things, their dog seems to get smarter. To trainyour dog effectively is mostly a matter of understanding your dog better, and communicating with"Doggy Language."Just like people, dogs are very social animals that crave love and security. Because of this, wefind behavioral patterns that account for both their playfulness and trainability. Dogs demonstrateloyalty and devotion through their natural instincts as pack animals, which mimics the humanconcept of love and friendship. This is the main reason why so many of us, see our dog as one ofour family, and believe it or not, dogs see us as one of their pack!Throughout human history dogs have lived and worked with humans, one to the benefit of theother, and this type of inter species relationship has earned our dogs the title of, "Mans BestFriend."Do to the natural instincts of the wild animal nature of our dog; it is important that behavior ismodified to live with us in our family. Dogs must be pleasant to have around and we must feel thatour children, friends, and other animals, are safe around our dog. Dogs do not figure out basicobedience by themselves, so dog training is a must.That said dog training can be a difficult task. Many dog owners try to obedience train but fail andgive up to soon. To train your dog effectively you must mix about five pounds of patience with tenpounds of love.A very common mistake that many dog owners make is telling a dog to "Come" and then try todiscipline him. The dog quickly learns that the word come means, "Youre in trouble and nowyoure going to be punished." Then the next time you want your dog inside, you go to the door andyell, "Come" and the dog runs away. You chase him down thinking "Stupid dog", then grab himand give him a stern, unhappy look and say, "How come you never come when I call you?" Whatour dog has learned is that the word "Come" means that youre angry. What we need our dog to
  2. 2. understand is that Come ALWAYS means good stuff, so get to me as quickly as possible. Noexceptions; Come means good, always.And if you must discipline your dog, be sure to do it while your dog is in the act of misbehaving,such as digging holes. You must correct him while he is in the act, because he wont associatewhat he did a minute ago. If you must discipline, tell him to sit and then give him his stern scolding.Remember that correction should NEVER include harmful physical punishment, like a rolled upnewspaper. This may make the dog stop the bad behavior in the short term, but in the long run itwill make him fear you, instead doing what you want just to make you happy.The last of the Free Dog Training Tips that I can give you for now, is to give lots of love and praisewhen training your dog. Most experts agree that this is the quickest way to train your dog to doanything. Your dog loves to please you, and when you give him that praise your dog will be thehappiest animal on the planet, and will love you till their dying day.
