Do you need to train your dog? Do you already have a pet with some behaviors you hope to rid
him of? This article should be where you begin! Keep reading on how to make sure your dog
really becomes man's best friend. #keep##flickr#
Gradual increments are easiest on your dog when going through crate training. Eventually they
will become comfortable with the crate and you can then try to shut the door to the crate. When
they allow the door to shut you can give them a treat through the wiring. Start off with small
periods, for example 10 seconds or so, and gradually increase crate time. If your pet seems upset
or agitated, you may need to slow down.

have your dog on a consistent bathroom schedule, have him or her eating quality food about two
or three times every day, at the exact same time. You will know when it is time for your the dog to
use the bathroom, reducing accidents.
Ensure that your dog gets plenty of exercise and stimulation. Almost all dogs have short attention
spans. Dogs with no enthusiasm will be harder to train than active dogs. If you have a happy,
exercised dog, they will listen better. It is a great idea to take your dog out on runs or walks
through the neighborhood.
Make sure that the only items your dog can reach are chew toys that are specifically made for
dogs. Immediately replace the object with one of the intended chew toys. If your puppy seems to
be suffering a lot from teething, a frozen washcloth to chew on can give him some relief.
Try to get your dog on a regular feeding schedule. This way, you are aware of when your dog will
need to do his business, and you can take him outside before an accident occurs. A regular
schedule will also give your dog a chance to learn how to exercise self-control, as he will know
that a trip outside is eminent.
You need to make certain your dog is having fun each day during training sessions. Taking time
to play creates a strong bond between the two of you, and your dog will be more likely to respond
well to training. Despite the fun the two of you will have during training, it is important to set aside
time that is designated to enjoyment only, with no work or training involved.
With consistency, you can train your dog to hold on longer. Try taking your dog outside each hour
when you're at home. Give him a little praise if he makes waste outside. Don't punish a puppy for
pottying inside. Your dog doesn't come out of the womb potty-trained, and it takes time to learn.
Yelling or punishing is not helpful. Bathroom breaks are required after meals or after leaving the
To make sure your dog pays attention to you, you should use its name as often as possible. By
using it as much as possible during the first weeks you own him, your puppy will learn that this
sound is in reference to him. Choose a short name that is easily recognizable from other words.
Is your dog getting enough nutrition? Just as in the case of kids, dogs have the potential to grow
hyper, bratty and scattered if they do not eat the right foods. If you switch brands of dog food to
reflect the unique needs of his breed, your pet will become happier and more energetic--the
perfect companion. Consult a vet for information about what foods your dog should be eating.
If you must reprimand your dog, it is important to do with an appropriate signal or cue. If you think
it is funny when your dog misbehaves and laugh, your dog will get the wrong idea. This can
hinder training and cause you to get frustrated. No matter how entertaining your dog is when he
misbehaves, you must consistently correct him.
Well-trained dogs make happy dogs, and owners are usually pretty happy as well. With the use of
these tips, you are well on your way to a successful dog training relationship.
