10 Tips to Dog Training Success

  • Sharebar


dog_training_picMost “keys to success” are universal, but it will be helpful for you to think of them in terms of your pet’s distinct personality.

1. Be patient. All dogs learn at different speeds and often don’t grasp concepts as quickly as we think they should. Having patience with your dog will help him to be successful.

2. Plan ahead. Set your dog up to succeed. If your dog isn’t “getting it,” the behavior probably needs to be broken down into smaller steps.

3. Be realistic. Don’t expect your dog to perform a behavior in a enviroment you haven’t taught him in.

4. Be kind. Use positive methods to teach your dog what’s expected of him.

5. Avoid punishment. Harsh corrections have no place in the learning phase of a dog’s development. Instead, teach your dog what you want him to do.

6. Reward effectively. Reinforce proper behavior with what motivates your dog. A pat on the head is nice but not necessarily what he wants. Remember that this is his paycheck: Pay up!

7. Be generous. All new trainers tend to be cheap with rewards. Reward correct responses often and don’t be afraid to reward exceptionally good responses with extra treats, praise, toys, and love.

8. Set goals. If you don’t know where you are going and have not planned out the session, how will you know when your dog’s got it?

9. Practice often. Teach your dog in short, frequent sessions.

10. Stay positive. Quit with your dog wanting more. An enthusiastic student is always an eager learner.

The simple truth of training dogs is that you get what you pay attention to. Set your dog up to succeed, limit his options, and reinforce what’s going right.  Soon you’ll have a well-behaved dog that everyone loves to have around.
