Teaching YOUR PUP: Obedience Training Basics

For successful training, practice the next basic training steps with your puppy every day. Keep workout sessions short. Your puppy will dsicover everything as a casino game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he's learning. Do each command for about five minutes and get back to it once you can.
Practice the commands in a large amount different places - in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, even out on walks - so that he gets used to giving an answer to you in every sorts of situations. You can use the click technique to help with other areas of your puppy's training, such as stimulating him to stand still for grooming and getting him used to journeying by car.
Your pup will learn rapidly and respond to love and affection as well as rewards. Obedience training will help build a long lasting bond between your couple and you'll 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 pup grows, so will his need to assert himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But giving directly into him is a mistake. You need to ensure he knows that you will not react to his every demand.
Your puppy needs to learn that individuals around him, particularly small kids, can be a little 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 bowl - then drop in a delicacy. Gently bump into him, while he's eating, or move toys nearby - anything to cause a distraction, but drop a treat in the bowl to incentive him for carrying on to eat calmly. Do that every so often, but not at every food. If your puppy freezes mid-mouthful, growls or glares at you, stop and try again another time. If this continues, you need to talk to a veterinary behaviorist or accredited dog trainer.

Reading your puppy's body language

Dogs have always communicated with each other by using body language. This involves cosmetic expressions, body postures, sounds and scents. Dogs use their mouth area, eyes, ears and tail expressing feelings. By learning how to interpret your puppy's body gestures, you can interpret your puppy's intentions.

Symptoms of aggression or submission

If your puppy is feeling brave or aggressive, he'll make an effort to make himself much larger by standing tall, along with his ears and tail sticking upright. He'll also force out his chest and raise the locks on his throat and back. He might also growl and influx his tail slowly.
Alternatively, a submissive dog will try to make himself appear small and become a puppy. It is because an adult dog will "inform off" a puppy but not assault him. Submission will need the form of the sideways crouch near to the floor, his tail kept low but wagging away. He may also make an effort to lick the face of the dominant dog or human being. He may even move on his back.

Your puppy's tail

Most of us notice that tail wagging is a sign of friendliness and pleasure, but the tail can indicate other moods, too.
The normal way a puppy holds his tail varies from breed to breed but in most cases, a tail held higher than 45 degrees to the trunk expresses alertness and interest.
If your puppy's tail is waved slowly and stiffly, that's an expression of anger. Whether it's clamped low over his hindquarters, it means your dog is afraid. An stressed or nervous dog may droop his tail but wag it stiffly.

Your puppy's eyes

If your dog's eye are half closed, that's a indication of pleasure or submission, while eyes widely open can indicate aggression.
In the wild, dogs stare at one another 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 up their mouths in a kind of lop-sided "grin", and indeed, it is an indicator of friendliness. However when lips are drawn back again tightly to bare one's 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 some other Dog Allergies to get him to join in a chase.

How your dog 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 want to improve communication with your pup, you can improve upon your own body language. For instance, crouching down with hands opened up out is a welcome indication while towering over him and staring is an indicator of threat.

How your pup learns

Your puppy will learn very quickly, so it is important that he learns how to behave properly right from the start.
Dogs learn by association, so if your pup will something good, praise him. Then your action is a lot more likely to be repeated. But the encourage must be linked to the action, so he must be rewarded quickly, within a second or two. The praise itself can be considered a few kibbles of puppy food or praise, or both.
Your puppy needs to be taught what he can and cannot do. Some harmless behaviors can be ignored, but potentially dangerous ones have to be dealt with immediately by interrupting the behavior with a razor-sharp "no" to get his attention - make sure to reward him when he stops and pays attention to you. Shouting or hitting won't help your puppy learn.

Understanding barking and whining

Barking

Barking is a completely natural facet of a dog's behavior, but you, your family and your neighbours will be happier if you can bring it under control.

It's hardly surprising many people have barking issues with their dogs, since most dogs have no idea whether barking is something good or bad. That's because our reaction to his barking is complicated to the dog. In his eye, 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 urged to bark if, for example, there are a suspicious stranger close by.
To help your pet know when barking is acceptable, you simply need to teach him that he might bark until he's told to avoid. "Stop barking" is highly recommended as a control for obedience rather than a telling off.

Start the training by letting your pet bark two or three times, praise him for sounding the alarm, then say "Stop barking" and hold on a treat in front of him. Your dog will minimize immediately only if due to the fact that he can't sniff the treat while barking. After a few seconds of quiet, give him the reward. Gradually increase the time from when the barking halts to the giving of the incentive.
If you're concerned 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 may 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 giving him attention and compliment when he stops whining, he'll learn that whining and whimperig is not the best way to earn your approval.
