Teaching Your Puppy: Obedience Training Basics

For successful training, practice the following basic training steps with your pup every day. Keep workout sessions short. Your puppy will see everything as a casino game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he's learning. Do each control for about five minutes and get back to it whenever you can.
Practice the commands in a large amount different places - in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, balance out on walks - so that he gets used to responding to you in all types of situations. You should use the click technique to assist with other areas of your puppy's training, such as encouraging him to stand still for grooming and getting him used to vacationing by car.
Your pup will learn very quickly and react to love and affection as well as rewards. Obedience training will help build a enduring bond between your two of you and you will be rewarded with a happy, well-trained dog.

Table manners

Giving directly into your puppy's every need is not a good thing. As your puppy develops, so will his need to say himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But providing directly into him is a blunder. You need to ensure he knows that you won't respond to his every demand.
Your puppy must learn that people around him, particularly small children, can be a bit unpredictable. But he must acknowledge that their unpredictable behavior is not threatening. You are able to help him do that by imitating a child's behavior. Try stepping quickly towards his dish - then drop in a delicacy. Carefully bump into him, while he's eating, or move toys close by - anything to cause a distraction, but drop a treat in the bowl to prize him for carrying on to consume calmly. Do this once in awhile, however, not at every food. If your puppy freezes mid-mouthful, growls or glares at you, stop and try again another time. If this proceeds, you need to talk to a veterinary behaviorist or qualified dog trainer.

Reading your puppy's body gestures

Dogs have always communicated with one another by using body gestures. This involves facial expressions, body postures, noises and scents. Dogs use their mouth area, eye, ears and tail to express feelings. By learning how to interpret your puppy's body language, you can interpret your puppy's intentions.

Signs of aggression or submission

If your pup is feeling brave or aggressive, he'll make an effort to make himself much larger by standing tall, with his ears and tail sticking upright. He'll also push out his chest and improve the hair on his throat and back. He could also growl and wave his tail gradually.
On the other hand, a submissive dog will try to make himself appear small and act like a puppy. It is because a grown-up dog will "inform off" a pup but not attack him. Submission will take the form of a sideways crouch near to the ground, his tail kept low but wagging away. He may also make an effort to lick the facial skin of the dominant dog or human. He might even move on his back again.

Your puppy's tail

Most of us know that tail wagging is a sign of friendliness and pleasure, however the tail can indicate other moods, too.
The normal way a dog holds his tail varies from breed to breed but generally speaking, a tail held higher than 45 levels to the back expresses alertness and interest.
In case your puppy's tail is waved slowly and stiffly, that's a manifestation of anger. If it's clamped low over his hindquarters, it means your pet grooming is afraid. An anxious or anxious dog may droop his tail but wag it stiffly.

Your puppy's eyes

If your dog's eye are half closed, that is clearly a sign of pleasure or submission, while eyes widely open can indicate aggression.
In the wild, dogs stare at each other until one backs down or makes a challenge, which means you should never attempt to outstare your puppy, particularly if he's nervous.

Your puppy's smile

Submissive dogs and some breeds such as Labradors often open their mouths in a kind of lop-sided "grin", and even, it is an indicator of friendliness. However when lips are drawn back again firmly to bare the teeth, that's aggression, make no mistake.

Wanting to play

If your pup wants to try out, he'll increase a paw or bow down and bark to attract attention. Or he could supply a toy, or bound up to another dog to get him to become listed on in a chase.

How your pet sees you

Your pup will watch you to learn your body signals more than he will listen to you, and he'll quickly learn what you're feeling even without you speaking.
If you wish to improve communication with your pup, you can improve upon your own body gestures. For example, crouching down with arms opened up out is a welcome indication while towering over him and staring is a sign of threat.

How your pup learns

Your pup will learn very quickly, so it's important that he learns how to behave properly right from the start.
Dogs learn by association, so if your puppy will something good, prize him. Then the action is much much more likely to be repeated. However the prize must be linked to the action, so he must be rewarded quickly, within a second or two. The incentive itself can be considered a few kibbles of puppy food or compliment, or both.
Your puppy must be taught what he can and cannot do. Some safe behaviors can be ignored, but potentially dangerous ones have to be handled immediately by interrupting the behavior with a sharpened "no" to get his attention - make sure to prize him when he halts and pays attention to you. Shouting or hitting will not help your pup learn.

Understanding barking and whining

Barking

Barking is a totally natural facet of a dog's behavior, but you, your family as well as your neighbors will be happier when you can take it under control.

It's hardly surprising many people have barking problems with their dogs, since most dogs do not know whether barking is something good or bad. That's because our a reaction to his barking is confusing to your dog. In his eyes, when he barks, he is sometimes ignored, while at other times he is shouted at to avoid, and on the other hand he may be inspired to bark if, for example, there are a suspicious stranger close by.
To help your dog know when barking is acceptable, you simply need to instruct him that he may bark until he's told to stop. "Stop barking" should be considered as a control for obedience rather than telling off.

Start working out by letting your pet bark several times, compliment him for sounding the alarm, then say "Stop barking" and hold out a treat in front of him. Your dog will minimize immediately if only due to the fact that he can't sniff the treat while barking. After a couple of seconds of noiseless, give him the praise. Gradually raise the time from when the barking halts to the giving of the praise.
If you are worried about excessive barking that you haven't any control over, you should talk to your vet about next steps, such as specialist training or therapy.

Whining

If you comfort your puppy whenever he whines, it could actually make things worse. It'll make your puppy think he's being praised for whining, and get him into the habit of repeating it for your love.
You are able to help your pup learn to stop whining by not g,oing to him when he whines. By disregarding your puppy, in support of offering him attention and praise when he stops whining, he'll learn that whining and whimperig is not the way to earn your acceptance.
