Training your Dog the Right Way

Posted on May 1, 2014 at 2:55 pm

Different dogs learn in different ways and it’s important to be able to train your dog effectively if you want to be a happy owner later down the line. The first time your puppy eats a shoe it can be deemed ‘cute’, but too much generosity to a dog can mean that it behaves poorly and it can actually cause real issues and complications later down the line.

There are workshops and sessions that you can attend if you need help training your dog, but quite often it is common sense. You have to know when to be firm with your dog and when to be rewarding. If you’re dog is starting to act out of control, then it’s important to discipline them correctly to show them that you’re in control and not them.

You should treat your dog when he or she behaves well, but it’s important to make sure you don’t give them too much control. Dogs graft in the wild, they’re active and they’re used to doing what they want. It’s their instinct, however, that has to change in a house, and if they leave under your roof make sure they live under your rules.
