Do you know that you can train your dog by yourself? Yes, I really mean it. Many people have no idea how to train their dogs. It is not that hard to train your dog these days because there is a lot of information out there that can help everyone learn to understand dogs and train them well in no time.
Consistency is important. Use the same words for the same behaviors. Stay and wait can both mean the dog stays in the same place, but the dog doesn’t know that. Choose either the one or the other and use it all the time. The same thing with down and lay, or paw and shake. Choose one command and stay consistent.
The key to having a well-trained, happier dog is to meet your dogs physical and mental needs first through exercise, obedience, play and affection. Secondly, create personal training goals and stay consistent with your expectation of your dog. Remembering, a well-trained dog is a happier dog because they love to spend more time with you.
Training your dog is not that hard if you are patient and consistent. Starting a dog training program with your pup is an incredible way to make your dog the best behaved pooch on the block and build an amazing relationship with your dog. Once you get started you will see just how rewarding it can be. I know what your thinking “but my dog is just to much for me sometimes” but trust me friend, if you stick with it you can and will have a good dog. I wish you all the best!
