Now on to the good stuff! After reading the above, you now understand what obedience training is and just why it is so important for you and your dog - especially for your relationship with one another. Here are a few tips that will help you in making progress with your pup:
• Your dog will not know what is expected of him/her immediately, so don't expect that he/she will be able to exactly what you want from day one.
In order for your dog to find success in obedience training, he/she needs to see consistency and repetition.
Remember, your dog did not come with a "how to" manual so he/she does not know how to act - you are his/her manual.
• Always praise and reward your dog for good behavior.
When your canine has done what you asked, reward him/her with a treat or new chew toy. When your canine does not do what you have asked, there should be no reward, but you should take time to show him/her the correction - what he/she should have done.
• If you have not yet trained your pup on a specific behavior and he acts inappropriately, don't punish him/her.
If he/she does not know how to act because you haven't' spent time on the training aspect of that behavior then it is unfair for you to punish him/her
• Understand training takes time.
This isn't some overnight trick that is going to get your dog to behave appropriately.
Take things slow and help your dog master a single command at one time.
Don't pile on five commands at once and expect your dog to learn them.
Master one and move on to the next. Master that one and move on the third.
• Always build on what you have already taught your pet.
Never let him/her forget the previous mastered commands. Focus primarily on new ones, but always bring the old ones back to ensure that he/she is still familiar with them.
