2 Useful Dog Training Tips

2 Dog Training TipsWhen it comes to dog training there are no secrets. There are no magic potions, or miracle sayings that can make your dog do what you want. You have to spend time with him, loving him and training him.

Many people seem to “have a way with dogs” in the sense that they can ask your dog to do anything and your dog will adhere to their command straight away. Then you try it five minutes later and your dog just stares at you blankly. It is true that some people have more of a chance getting dogs to do what they say, not because of some aura around them but because of experience and tone of voice.

So one important thing to keep in mind when training your dog is the tone of your voice.

Your dog needs to know that you mean business, but he has to know that you’re not angry at him. You have to find a tone of voice that shows dominance but compassion. If you are constantly shouting at your dog he is going to get used to it, he will not know when he is doing something wrong, because he doesn’t know when he is doing something good.

Another great dog training tip is to use a lot of praise and attention.

Dogs won’t learn the difference between good and bad unless they get treated differently. When your dog does something bad don’t roar at him, strictly tell him he was bad and not to do it again.
Then when he does it right shower him with cuddles, treats and praise.

Dogs come to learn that when they do something what they are told, they will get rewarded for it. Then after a while it just becomes a second nature to them. Of course praise is continuously needed!

All dogs are different, one dog is not identical to the next, so it may take longer to learn for some than the others. Just keep training.
