Work on socializing the dog from its birth. Dogs must interact easily with humans and other animals with
Doggy Dan training. They must not become excited or frightened when strangers approach or get
distracted by other animals and new stimuli in their environment. Keep the pup in an environment
where it receives human touch from its early days and where it frequently experiences new people,
animals and situations.
Buy the equipment the dog will need. If the dog will serve as a guide dog for a sight-impaired person, it
will need a Seeing Guide Dog leash. If the dog will pull a person in a wheelchair, he will need a special
harness. Accustom the dog to wearing any special equipment from puppyhood. Dogs should have
special badges that identify them as dogs and alert the public that no one should interfere or distract
them in the performance of their duties. dogs-in-training should also wear these badges to allow the
trainer to train them in public without interference.
Begin training the dog as a dog after the dog reaches the one-year mark. Until that time, future dogs can
learn basic commands (come, sit, stay, heel) and skills they will build on later (not to jump, not to bark
unnecessarily). But advanced training for a dog does not begin until the dog is one year old and
demonstrates that it can successfully complete the rigorous training that a dog must endure.
Decide on the commands the dog will need to know. This will depend on the kind of the dog will
perform. Dogs who serve invalids or wheelchair-bound individuals may need training in bringing objects
to the owner, pulling the owner's wheelchair when needed and even protecting the owner during an
epileptic attack or other incident by acting as a barrier between the owner and nearby surfaces or
objects. Trainers have trained dogs to place their paw on a 911 button if the owner has an attack.
Seeing-eye dogs or hearing-aid dogs need to alert their owners to stimuli that the owners cannot see or
hear. The type of training depends on the owner's needs.
Teach the dog to respond to hand signals or verbal commands, depending on the owner's needs. Decide
in advance the commands needed and how to convey those commands (words, hand or other types of
motion). Use one command for each action. As the dog becomes proficient at responding to the
command, reward her consistently with favorite dog treats.
Maintain a high level of patience when reading Best Dog Training Books. Professionals estimate that
training a dog fully can take up to 18 months. When training a dog at home, expect the dog to learn one
new command or action at a time. Review all the commands the dog has learned together with the new
command and only add a newer command after the dog has adapted to the previous command
