Tips for Aiding your training

Tips for Aiding your training

  • Always focus more on positive praise
  • Do separate training time from play time (keep training time sacred)
  • Only use "NO" for all unwanted behaviors
  • Follow through on any command you present
  • Always use hand signals with verbal command
  • Always keep leash on while training
  • Always correct and redirect with what you want your dog to do
  • Always be firm in commands and use of dog's name with pleasant intonation (your dog should not cower out of fear)
  • Always look for the difference in being appeased and wanting a command

  • Traps to Avoid when training

  • Never negotiate with your dog in your voice (mean what you say)
  • Never use your dog's name with any negative sound
  • Never allow your dog to play the "inch up" game
  • Never give your dog people food if you don't want it to beg
  • Never leave your dog in the sun for too long
  • Never leave your dog in a crate more than its bladder can handle (new puppies usually 2 hours)
  • Never let your dog run free inside until it is more than 70% managed through training
  • Never correct without redirection command
  • Never get too complacent early and get fooled by a sense of false security. Time and repetition will ingrain obedience.
  • Never fail to follow through on ANY command.
