Smart Ideas: Trainers Revisited
A well trained canine offers unconditional love and friendship to their owner. You will have control of your pet when you come across other animals and children as a great benefit from training your pet. A trained dog is able to easily understand what you expect from them and thus they are also happy. Your dog training becomes easy when you use the right techniques. Fundamental commands are critical and you may want to use them to train your dog since they form the cornerstone of communication between you and your dog. You will need to use rewards and positive reinforcements to ensure that your dog quickly learns these commands.
The first important fundamental command that you will want your dog to learn is to sit. Sitting is the most common command and thus it is the first command that you should teach your dog. It is critical that you put your dog on a leash attached to the dog collar. You will go further and hold a treat over the dogs head and make him look up then you will tell your dog to sit. If your dog does not sit then go ahead and put your hand over the canine rear side and press him down gently as you tell him to sit. If your dog sits ensure that you praise them as well as giving the treat. It is essential that your dog understand why you have given them the treat and also ensure that you reward your dog immediately.
Once your dog has learned the sit command the next command you will need to train them on is the lie-down command. Firstly, you will need to tell your dog to sit but this time do not reward them. Once the dogs sit properly go ahead and hold his shoulders and press the front part of his body down while telling him to lie down. Go ahead and offer a treat to the dog and reward him immediately he is able to do that. You will need your dog to understand that you are happy with them by use of your tone.
The stay command is also essential for your dog training. This will be important when you will be outside with your dog and you come into contact with other animals and humans. You will want to begin this training once your dog is relaxed and is not in playful mood. Give your dog the lie down command then hold your hand up as if you are signaling a person to stop and say stay. Ensure that you are patient and persistent with your dog and you will get excellent results.
