Dogs are man’s best friends, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be your worst enemies. Ever had a dog knock over your garbage cans or shred up the newspaper you were saving for recycling? It is important to train your dog so he knows his boundaries and what behaviors are not acceptable in society. In this blog post, I will give you tips on how to do just that!
Research what type of training is best for your dog. There are a variety of different types of training, including positive reinforcement, clicker training, and obedience schools. Do some research to see which type would be the best fit for you and your furry friend.
Positive reinforcement involves rewarding good behavior with treats or petting, while clicker training uses a clicker to mark the exact moment when the dog performs the desired behavior. Obedience schools use verbal commands and hand signals to teach dogs basic manners, such as sit, stay, come, and down.
No matter what type of training you choose, always be consistent with your commands and rewards. If you only train your dog when you feel like it, they will not learn their new behaviors.
You should also invest in some dog training tools such as a leash, collar, and dog treats. There are lots of different types to choose from depending on your needs (e.g., leather or nylon), but I would recommend a buckle collar with handle for easy control over the dog when walking him outside.
Additionally, you will need some kind of reward system to reinforce good behavior in your pup. Treats are the most common reward for dogs, but you can also use petting or verbal praise.
Make sure to always start out with short training sessions and slowly build up your dog’s stamina. If they get tired too quickly, try increasing their exercise in between each session so that they have more energy when it comes time for training!
To avoid mess, consider investing in an indoor dog potty. If you do not have a backyard to let your dog out, then having this will allow them to go the bathroom when they need it without messing up floors or carpets inside! Puppy pads are also a popular choice, but they can be really messy if your dog misses the target.
