Most pet owners train their puppies until they get older. There are actually several training tips available in the Internet for you to use. You could try them all but make sure to take one at a time so that your dog won’t get confused. Try training him with the basic skills first until it gets more advanced each day or as he progresses. Once your puppy already mastered a single skill, then that would be the right time for you to teach him a new one. It would be best if you will opt for positive approach in training him. a lot of pet owners already proved that using positive training and reinforcements are more effective compared to the negative approach. These are the things that you should keep in mind while you’re on your way.
First thing of all, teach him to sit. It is one of the simplest and most common skills that your puppy must learn. Teach him how to sit. Once you’ve given a command, he must follow it immediately. That is the sign that the puppy understands what you are trying to imply. Let the puppy stand and ask him to sit. If he will be able to do it many times without fail, then you may now proceed to the next skill. Never reprimand him during his first try. Be patient enough in training your dogs because like children, they are also new to this new behavior. Therefore, patience is very much required until such time that your puppy will be more familiar to the skill as well as the word you’re mentioning.
Every command has to be coupled with proper action that he must understand in a specific period of time. The capabilities of each dog vary according to their breed so better identify it ahead of time in order for you to plan according to his abilities. Instead of giving punishment when he commits an error, try giving him a reward such as food when he performs it perfectly. This way, the puppy will understand that if he won’t be doing the command correctly, no food will be given to him. It will definitely encourage and inspire him to do the task accordingly.
Provide an open communication with your pet. Human as we are, they also understand our gestures. They might not be able to verbalize their thoughts and feelings but they know how to express gratitude and anger towards us. Be more observant to every action that he wants you to know. At time that they feel to urinate, they will just come near you and wave their tails or stick their nose. You should not scold or yell when you notice that there is something strange in its actions. Since you are training the puppy, make sure that you also understand what his action mean. Keeping a good communication from a pet and pet owner is truly amazing. Not all owners could do this perfectly. It takes some time before rapport can be established between the two. But just like what has been mentioned earlier, patience and courage is the key to have a lasting relationship.
