5 Excellent Dog Training Tips

Whether you have an aggressive dog with behavior issues or a puppy that is struggling with potty training, effective dog training can solve all of your problems. It is not always your pet’s fault as they are doing what is innate. But with the proper guidance you can have them trained the way you want. Here are five tips to help you get the most out of your training.

1. Patience
The first tip you must abide by is being patient with your dog. You cannot expect them to completely change overnight. It takes time for them to learn what they are being taught and apply that into their daily lives. The last thing you want to do is get impatient and frustrated with them.

2. Consistency
While it does take time for them to learn, consistency is absolutely vital. If you work with them one day and then take a few days off, they will have forgotten everything you taught them. Take 15 to 30 minutes out of your day to work with your pup and teach them something new. Not only will you be able to train them on a specific problem, but you can also teach them new tricks.

3. Positivity
Having a negative attitude is going to get you nowhere with your dog training. Not only will it frustrate you, but it will create discouragement toward your dog. To get the best results, show them support and encouragement. Just as people do, dogs need reinforcement that they can and will succeed.

4. Use what’s best for your dog
All over the internet you will find a plethora of different techniques and programs that will supposedly guide you in the right direction. What you will quickly learn is not every method works for you and your dog. Instead, you have to search for the proper technique and training method that will work for your dog.

5. Make it fun
The last tip to help you get the best results with your dog training is to make it fun. Look at it as a time that you and your dog get to bond and have a good time together as oppose to a time you are being forced to spend with them. If you keep your training at 15 to 30 minutes per day, your dog will enjoy the time and truly take in what you are teaching. Throw in some toys with the sessions and it will be a lesson well taught.

Training collar for my puppy?
I have a 13 week old lhasa poo and am trying to train her. We are enrolled in puppy classes, but because I bought her at a puppy store instead of from a breeder, she is a bit harder to train. She's not responding to much of what I am doing, so I was wondering if I should look into some of these training collars:
