Basic dog obedience training is an important part of raising Rover and the key to establishing a positive relationship with your pet that will endure!
Training your dog or puppy with the basics of obedience is the first step toward his recognition of you, as his pack leader, and the beginning of gaining respect for one another.
A very important secret to communicating with dogs when teaching obedience is learning how they think and understanding their body language.
Once you have a grasp on
this, teaching your dog will be a lot easier and faster. So get yourself set up with a good system of basic dog obedience training that includes the professional secrets needed to be successful.
Without a reliable program to follow, you'll be flying blind and this could be very frustrating and miserable for both you and the dog.
All dogs are trainable although some breeds are more willing learners, because they've inherited strong trainability traits from their ancestors.
Regardless of this fact, all dogs want the approval of their masters and this fact alone
makes them good candidates for training. It also means that you as their pack leader, are the best
person to train them.
Of course there are some excellent private instructors out there, but going this route can be expensive. Plus you are missing the opportunity that you get to bond with your pet when you train in-home. Just a few dollars will get you started with a professional guide to basic dog obedience training.
The advantage of a reliable system is that it will get
started with all the foundational basic commands such at sit, stay, come,
leave-it, etc. And you will have all the information at hand to take you to the
next level when you and your dog are ready.
I also highly recommend this approach for the reason that if you do this yourself your pet won't have to make the adjustment to a new situation or new trainer down the road.
Here's the bottom line sad but true: Untrained pets frequently wind up in animal shelters because they...
...all things that could have been resolved by some simple training.
Many owners who surrender their dogs to shelters will say they were forced to because of relocation, divorce, busy schedule, finances, travel, etc.
But the real reason is often
because their cute puppy grew up into a confused and insecure pet with lots of problems!!
The simple kindness of owners taking their responsibility seriously and starting basic dog obedience training with their dogs, could save thousands of pets from this undeserved fate.
Teaching a pet the main requirements for good behavior is one of the most essential steps to ensuring that dogs will never wind up in an animal shelter, but will take their rightful place as a beloved member of the family.
Lastly, here are a few training tips to keep in mind when starting out:
Most of all enjoy the time you spend with your best friend and give him a good life!
