Teaching Your Puppy: Obedience Training Basics

pet groomingFor successful training, practice the next basic training steps with your pup every day. Keep training sessions short. Your puppy will see everything as a casino game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he's learning. Do each order for about five minutes and get back to it whenever you can.
Practice the commands in lots of different places - in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, even out on walks - so that he gets used to responding to you in every sorts of situations. You can use the click technique to help with other aspects of your puppy's training, such as encouraging him to stand still for grooming and getting him used to journeying by car.
Your puppy will learn very quickly and react to love and affection as well as rewards. Obedience training can help build a lasting bond between your couple and you will be rewarded with a happy, well-trained dog.

Table manners

Giving in to your puppy's every need is wii thing. As your pup develops, so will his need to assert himself. Puppies often choose mealtimes as a battleground. But offering in to him is a mistake. You need to ensure he knows that you won't react to his every demand.
Your puppy needs to learn that people around him, particularly small kids, can be a little unpredictable. But he must accept that their unpredictable behavior is not threatening. You can 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 nearby - anything to result in a distraction, but drop a delicacy in the dish to incentive him for carrying on to eat calmly. Do that once in awhile, but not at every meal. If your puppy freezes mid-mouthful, growls or glares at you, stop and try again another time. If this proceeds, it's best to talk to a veterinary behaviorist or certified dog trainer.

Reading your puppy's body language

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

Signals of aggression or submission

If your pup is feeling brave or aggressive, he'll try to make himself larger by standing tall, along with his ears and tail sticking upright. He'll also push out his chest and improve the locks on his neck 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 become a puppy. This is because a grown-up dog will "tell off" a pup but not assault him. Submission will take the form of a sideways crouch near to the surface, his tail kept low but wagging away. He might also make an effort to lick the face of the dominating dog or human being. He might even move on his back.

Your puppy's tail

The majority of us notice 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 greater than 45 levels to the trunk expresses alertness and interest.
If your puppy's tail is waved slowly and stiffly, that's a manifestation 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

In case your dog's eye are half closed, that's a indication of pleasure or submission, while eye wide open can indicate aggression.
In the open, dogs stare at one another until one backs down or makes a challenge, so you should never attempt to outstare your puppy, particularly if he's nervous.

Your puppy's smile

Submissive dogs plus some breeds such as Labradors often open their mouths in a kind of lop-sided "grin", and even, it is a sign of friendliness. But when lips are drawn back tightly to bare one's teeth, that's aggression, make no mistake.

Wanting to play

If your puppy wants to play, he'll raise a paw or bow down and bark to attract attention. Or he could supply a toy, or bound up to some other dog to get him to become listed on in a chase.

How your dog sees you

Your puppy will watch you to read your body indicators more than he'll pay attention to you, and he'll quickly learn what you feel even without you speaking.
If you want to improve communication with your puppy, you can improve upon your own body gestures. For example, crouching down with hands opened out is a welcome indication while towering over him and staring is a sign of threat.

How your puppy learns

Your pup will learn very quickly, so it is important that he learns how to behave properly immediately.
Dogs learn by association, so if your puppy does something good, incentive him. Then the action is much more likely to be repeated. However the compensate must be from the action, so he must be rewarded quickly, within another or two. The praise itself can be considered a few kibbles of puppy food or praise, or both.
Your puppy must be taught what he can and cannot do. Some safe behaviors can be ignored, but possibly dangerous ones have to be taken care of immediately by interrupting the behavior with a razor-sharp "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 is a totally natural facet of a dog's behavior, nevertheless, you, your family as well as your neighbours 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 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 eyes, when he barks, he's sometimes ignored, while at other times he is shouted at to avoid, and then again he may be inspired to bark if, for example, there's a suspicious stranger close by.
To help your pet know when barking is acceptable, you simply need to teach him that he may bark until he's told to stop. "Stop barking" should be considered as a command for obedience rather than a telling off.

Start the training by letting your pet bark several times, compliment him for sounding the alarm, then say "Stop barking" and hold out a treat before him. Your pet supplie boutique will stop immediately if only because of the fact that he can't sniff the treat while barking. After a couple of seconds of noiseless, give him the incentive. Gradually boost the time from when the barking stops to the offering of the prize.
If you're worried about excessive barking that you have no control over, you should talk to your vet about next steps, such as specialist training or therapy.


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 passion.
You are able to help your pup figure out how to stop whining by not g,oing to him when he whines. By ignoring your puppy, and only offering him attention and compliment when he prevents whining, he'll learn that whining and whimperig is not the best way to earn your approval.
