You and your pet will enjoy a closer relationship after he is properly trained. When a dog has great training and is perfectly socialized, they are so much fun to be with. This part of your life will be a great joy. Use these great tips to work with your pet and build a healthier, happier environment for both of you!

Train your dog regularly for the best results. You need to learn as much as your dog does in order to be an effective trainer. You can not be expect to find perfection in just a few tries, no matter how hard you try. It is the same as training your dog.

Training should begin with the easier commands. Not only will you achieve gratification due to your success, but your dog will know what acceptable behavior is. You’ll see positive results as you train.

You need to teach your dog right away that they should drop or back away from something when you say “leave it.” This will help prevent them from chewing on your furniture or other items, as well as prevent them from having dangerous items in their mouths.

Dogs need at least 60 minutes of exercise time every day, on top of training and bathroom breaks. When your dog gets enough exercise, training sessions are usually more effective and produce faster results. Fit dogs are happy and responsive to you.

Use a controlled and calm behavior when rewarding your dog for good behavior. If the dog follows commands correctly, you should reward the animal only if it is calm. While you may be overjoyed with headway you are making, showing excitement causes the dog to become excited and makes you lose control. Be calm and be sure to reward appropriately.

Positive reinforcement is the preferred training method for dogs. Use petting, positive words, and occasion treats to reward your dog whenever he does something good. Don’t ever yell at or hit your dog. It only abuses the dog and causes him to be even more disobedient. Instead, make sure you are firm, patient, consistent and positive so that you can achieve the best possible results.

Be patient when training a dog. This will reduce anger, stress and tension when you train your dog. Your dog wants to do what you ask him to, but you have to give him the commands in a way in which he understands what is expected.

Regulate your dog’s feeding time if you want to regulate his “potty” times too. Make sure that you feed your dog at least three times per day with good food. By scheduling your feedings, you will be able to determine when you should take your dog out. This can greatly reduce the number of accidents.

If you are training your pet, you need to get the whole family into it so that the dog listens to everyone. Involve the whole family in the training process and ensure that the same commands are used by each family member. You have to be consistent if you want to be successful at training your dog.

In one vital respect, dogs are just like people: the effectiveness of various training techniques varies according to the individual. An obedient puppy will learn well thanks to positive reinforcement, but a more stubborn dog needs to be punished until it understands you are the leader. Try using a different method if your current method presents little success.

Training isn’t as hard as you think! Even something that may appear like a minor adjustment can actually produce significant improvements in the animal’s attitude and habits.
