Dog training can seem pretty daunting at first, especially if this is your first dog. The reality is that a really big project is training your dog. You will find the assignment to be even less challenging if you take it step-by-step. To help get you started, here is some information:
One of the most basic dog commands to teach your pet is to teach your dog to sit, thereby making it a perfect one to begin with. It would be much relaxed and easier to manage a dog who knows the “Sit” command than dogs who are not taught this basic command. In addition, the “Sit” command prepares your dog for more challenging commands like “Stay” and “Come.”
If you don’t plan to keep your dog outdoors—and few of us do so because it’s not advised — you’re going to have to teach your dog where to go to get rid of it. As such, one of the first things you need to focus on with your dog is house training (also called housebreaking or potty training). Crate training can be a very valuable part of the method of training.
One of the most challenging dog training commands to teach is this next instruction. The explanation that learning this command can be difficult for your dog is that it allows him to be in a submissive pose. By maintaining positive and comfortable training, especially if your dog is fearful or anxious, you can help your dog out. Bear in mind, too, to always compliment your dog until he follows the order successfully.
It’s necessary for any dog to learn to walk on a leash. There will be times when keeping the dog on a leash is for his own protection, in addition to the fact that most places have leash rules. Learn how to introduce the leash to your dog or puppy, then show him how to walk on the leash properly, sometimes on a bike beside you.
Socializing involves educating your puppy or adult dog by introducing him to these things in order to embrace new people, animals, and different places. Socialized dogs are less likely to have issues with behavior and are more accepted by others in general. Socialization can also help discourage fears and phobias from developing.
Note that an ongoing phase is preparation. Never will you be fully done. Throughout your dog’s life, it is important to keep focusing on obedience training. People who at a young age learn a language but stop speaking that language as they grow older can forget much of it.
