3 Easy Dog Training Keys That Will Achieve Rapid Results

KEYS TO DOG TRAINING

There are a few real keys to dog training, whether you are trying to train your dog to come when called, sit, stop barking, or any other behavior.

 

Dog Training Basics

 

Understanding their importance is critical to achieving rapid results that are long-lasting and help develop the bond between you and your dog.

Dog Training Key Number One

 

Starting to train your dog from a young age

 

The first is simple; you must win your dog’s mind.  

If you don’t achieve this first, then you will be struggling all the way. When I talk about winning your dogs’ minds, what I mean is that your dog looks to you for all the decisions.

Before you do anything else, watch one of the amazing video sites that show you the 5 Golden rules to establishing yourself as the pack leader.

If you aren’t putting these in place, then you are setting yourself up to fail.

Just at the crucial point where you want your dog to listen, they will go and do their own thing.

For sure, your dog may play ball occasionally, or most of the time, you may even have a dog that is obedient 99% of the time. However, if you want a dog who always listens to you and does as you ask, then you need to win your dog’s mind.

The second key to success is to motivate your dog.

You must discover what your dog enjoys both in terms of exercise and play and in terms of a reward. If you can make the experience enjoyable, you will both achieve more and look forward to training.

 

Starting to train your dog from a young age

 

Some dogs love to fetch, others love agility, and other dogs love obedience training or swimming out into the water and retrieve.

At least to start with, find out what your dogs love is and help them develop this. What I am saying is to work with your dog.

The other point to recognize is to make training enjoyable reward your dog.

The Three Primary Rewards Are:

Food

Food- anything from a single dry biscuit to a whole piece of sausage!

If you want to use food rewards, then always follow these simple tips:

  • Always vary food rewards.
  • Do not give food rewards every time.
  • Never let your dog know what the reward is.
  • If your dog doesn’t come the first time, then do not reward them.

Affection

Affection- pats, cuddles, lots of high verbal praise…😍😍😍

Toys

Toys- games, throwing a stick or object, chasing your dog, etc

Your dog is always going to work harder if you are fair in your training. Even if you do not want to use the food, you should make sure that you use affection accordingly when your dog does well.

Dog Training Key Number Three

Again this is where rewards come in so handy! Motivate and then show your dog what you want, and there is no need for any negative training!
