Although sometimes you can train multiple dogs at once, at other times, dogs’ personalities clash and make this ineffective. Beware of this if you own more than one dog. If you attempt to train your dogs at the same time and notice that they are not able to concentrate the way that you want them to, you may need to train them separately.
Wearing out a puppy with too much training and information, will be extremely counterproductive. Keep your training sessions short and sweet, this will help your puppy be more focused. If you push too hard, your puppy will remember it as a negative experience, and the next time you work to train him, it will be far more difficult.
Talk your dog on a long walk before you go to work or are leaving your place for a while. By letting them get some exercise before you go, they are less anxious and not so likely to run amok in the house and do damage.
Dogs have great focus and can focus on one thing, ignoring everything else, until something breaks their attention. With enough training, your dog should be able to pay more attention to your orders.
Pay attention to how much time you spend training in one session. Dogs can only handle a short amount of training at a time, so don’t overdo it. The first few sessions especially should be kept under 10 minutes.
Prepare your dog early on for veterinary examinations. Gently run your hands across his whole body, and praise him for calm behavior. Work with him so he is tolerant of having his paws touched and teeth examined. Have other people that your dog is less familiar with help in the training process.
Encourage your dog to be as active as possible. Boredom often befalls an inactive dog, or he may find himself in a “mutt rut” with a dull and listless routine. A bored dog will try and find something interesting to do, and training is not usually interesting. If your dog is fit and content, he will be much more likely to heed your instructions. Regularly take a walk or run with your dog.
Fear is the number one cause of a dog biting. This can happen if the dog feels backed into a corner or otherwise unable to escape a bad situation. While training your dog, you should avoid the use of excessive force. Your frustrated dog may bite you. A puppy is expecting you to be the leader of his pack and is anxious to please you.
If you can get your mind in tune with what your dog is thinking, it will have a great impact on your training. Having this knowledge can help one effectively train their dog. One can provide your dog with better training now that one knows more about their dog.
